Air duct cleaning removes built-up dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen, bacteria and other contaminants circulating through your HVAC system. While professional duct cleaning provides a deep clean, air purifiers help supplement by continuously filtering the air in your home, especially between cleanings.
Some key ways air purifiers complement air duct cleaning include:
• Reduced re-contamination.
An air purifier helps prevent new contaminants from building up in your ducts after a professional clean. By filtering air around the clock, less debris ends up in the system for the next duct cleaning.
• Improved filtration.
Also,most HVAC filters only remove large particles and do a poor job at trapping small particles like pollen, mold, pet dander and volatile organic compounds. An air purifier with HEPA filtration can remove these tiny airborne contaminants for allergy and asthma sufferers.
• Ongoing sanitation.
Professional duct cleanings can disinfect and decontaminate your HVAC system, but do not provide ongoing sanitation between services. An air purifier with UV light or activated carbon can continuously help sanitize and deodorize the air, removing bacteria, viruses, odors and airborne pathogens.
• Balanced circulation.
Air purifiers, especially those with air quality sensors, can help ensure even air circulation at an optimal filtration level throughout your home. They adjust speed and filtration automatically based on conditions so some rooms don’t end up with over- or under-filtered air.
• Peace of mind.
For those with health concerns, allergies or asthma, using a high-quality air purifier provides extra reassurance that the air in your home is as clean and breathable as possible. You gain confidence in the air quality and can avoid symptoms even without the deep clean of a full duct cleaning.
In summary, air duct cleaning and air purifiers work hand in hand to deliver thoroughly clean, contaminant-free and circulating indoor air. By having your ducts professionally serviced and using an air purifier on an ongoing basis, you create a healthy home environment and can breathe easier, especially those with respiratory issues or sensitivities. For the freshest air possible, combined duct cleaning and purification is the ultimate solution.
