Do you know what is inside your ductwork?  Most people do not know the answer to that question.

WHY YOU SHOULD CLEAN YOUR DUCTS IN THE FALL

Most people do not think about having their ductwork cleaned during the fall, but this is the perfect time. Up to 40 lbs. of dust, pet dander, contaminants and other materials can collect in your ductwork throughout the year.  In addition, your air ducts can have mold and bacteria growing in them. 

Fall is a great time to get your ducts cleaned as the heating season is almost here.  See below for more information on the benefits to having your ductwork cleaned in the fall by the pros at Dependable Service:

Reduction in Dust

It’s amazing to think about how much dust can accumulate in your ducts throughout the year.  Actually, up to 40lbs a year can accumulate in your ductwork.  Some of the dust recirculates through your home when the HVAC system is working, and the air blows over the dust in the ducts and vents. Air filters will catch some of the dust, but some will still end up in your house. Reduce the dust in your house and ductwork by having them cleaned.

The more dust, pet dander, mold, and contaminates that are in your ductwork, the more there will be to circulate in your house.

This can be especially true if you or a family member has fall allergies Cleaning your air ducts will help reduce the irritants floating in your house.

customer review

“We are truly grateful for everyone’s quick response to our flood in the main building here at St. Cyprian Church. The workers were tremendous in their search-and-find techniques to locate our buried sewer main line. The clean out was a difficult and tedious job but they stayed with it for hours. On Friday, business was as usual here and it would not have been if your company had not come out to the rescue. I’m sure the parishioners are happy to know that the bathrooms are available and that our problem has been eliminated. Be assured that your kindness and efficiency are appreciated. We are also grateful that you recognize our financial limitations. May our gracious God bless you all for your care.” –- St. Cyprian Staff
