Home Improvement: The Problems With DIY Air Duct Cleaning

HVAC Experts Since 2012

Air ducts are a vital part of your home. Without them, there would be no way for your central heating or cooling system to adequately send treated air to the rest of your house. You’d be forced to spend time in one room of your home, like in the old days, and privacy would become a thing of the past.

Luckily, modern-day technology and air ducts have made heating and cooling a lot simpler. With the introduction of air ducts, every room in your home can be comfortable without the need for doors to be open or fans to be circulating everywhere.

However, these air ducts require cleaning every once in a while, and you might be in for a rude awakening if you try to clean the ducts yourself. Here are some reasons to avoid air duct cleaning in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.

Potential Damage

Air ducts are delicate, depending on how they’re constructed and what they’re made out of. Just one bit of force in the wrong direction, and you could have a tear that compromises your home comfort and requires repairs. This is a terrible situation to be in.

Unfortunately, damaging ductwork is a byproduct of DIY duct cleaning that we see all the time. It’s not a good situation to be in, but the worst part is that it’s entirely avoidable with professional services. Just work with a team of licensed professionals to avoid damaging your ducts unknowingly, so you don’t have to deal with the consequences.

Hazards to Your Comfort and Health

Do you know how much dust and debris could get stuck in your air ducts? A lot, and most of it is not nice to breathe in or be exposed too. Sometimes you could have a pest problem in your ducts, or a dead rodent stinking them up. These can be a nightmare to deal with on your own, and it’s worth noting that professional duct cleaners have training for these kinds of situations.

Work with our team to avoid running into any health hazards or complications with the cleaning and clearing of your air ducts.

Time and Effort

Let’s look at duct cleaning through a different perspective. Imagine you were able to do this all on your own and clean your air ducts without professional help. Sure, it’s possible, but how long would it take and how much effort would you need to put into this job for it to be completed successfully? More than you know.

First of all, air duct cleaning requires specialized equipment that you likely don’t have on-hand. This means you’d either have to purchase new equipment or spend a lot of time using sub-par equipment to clean your air ducts. Then, even with all of that, it would take a grueling amount of time and legwork to get this done for your entire house. For the bucks you’d save, it’s just not worth it to try and take on this kind of service yourself—trust us.
