Home air duct cleaning refers to the process of cleaning out the air ducts, as well as, the furnace in your home. This is an important process because over time our air ducts collect dust. When there is a lot of dust, the air quality of our home is negatively affected.
Let’s take a look at the process of home air duct cleaning.
Before you can begin you want to make sure that you turn the thermostat off and keep the fan on. One of the first things that you should look at is the air filter. The air filter will be found in the furnace. This filter acts as a shield for your home against dust. After being used for a while an air filter will collect too much dust and will need to be swapped out for a fresh one.
After you check the filter, you can start working on the air ducts around your home. It’s a good idea to take off some of the grates around the home. When you take them off you are going to wash them and make sure any dust that you find is removed. A handheld vacuum is a great tool to remove the dust under the grates.
