Seasonal allergies are incredibly common throughout the Maryland area, especially in more rural areas with higher pollen counts. However, if you find yourself sneezing throughout the year, the culprit might be inside of your home. Air duct cleanings can remove common household allergens and have your family breathing easier immediately.

What Are Household Allergens?

Household allergens can affect anyone, but they most commonly affect those with asthma or seasonal allergies. The most common household allergens lurking in your air ducts include:

  • Dust mites
  • Pet dander
  • Mold spores
  • Cockroach leavings
  • Pollen

The most common signs of household allergies are:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Congestion
  • Red or itchy eyes
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Itching

How Does Air Duct Cleaning Remove Allergens?

Air duct cleaning removes dirt and allergens from the air ducts inside of your home with professional-grade vacuums and cleaning devices. If you have not had your ducts cleaned in a while (or ever), there might be a surprising amount of dirt and debris lurking in them. If your ducts are not cleaned, the dirt, mold spores, allergens and debris inside of them are released into your home every time you turn on the heating or air conditioning. After a professional air duct cleaning, most homeowners experience immediate results. The air quality inside of your home will be better and allergies should no longer be a problem.

How Often Should Air Ducts Be Cleaned?

If you suffer from allergies or have pets, you should have your air ducts cleaned annually to enjoy the best results. Your air filters can be changed at the same time that your air ducts are cleaned for the biggest impact. An air duct cleaning from Clean Sweep will leave your air ducts cleaned and sanitized. Upon inspection by one of our technicians, we will inform you of when your next appointment should be. Think of an air duct cleaning like an oil change for your home—everything will run more smoothly and last much longer.
