Dirty Ducts Cleaning

Clean & Healthy Air, Breath after Breath

Should I Clean My Ductwork to Reduce The Spread of Covid-19

The CDC has not made any specific claims stating that you should clean your ductwork.  However, NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) and the EPA have recommended that cleaning your ductwork does remove source contaminants that contain unwanted bacteria, mold, and micro-organisms.

Dirty air ducts can contribute to larger health issues, especially for those with respiratory conditions, auto-immune disorders, asthma, or allergies.  By simply removing the harboring dust and debris in your ductwork, you can significantly improve your indoor air quality.    

There are several reason why cleaning the ductwork in the office or at home can provide noticeable benefits:

  • Certain strains of bacteria and viruses are aggressive airborne travelers.  They can collect on interior duct debris extending life and prolonging airborne contamination.  
  • The HVAC system is essentially the lungs of your building, pulling in unwanted airborne particles and redistributing them to other areas of your building through the supply ductwork.  This can override physical segregation or social distancing  
  • Even with the best filters including HEPA, microscopic virus particles are typically <1um and wont be caught by filtration
  • Improved energy efficiency - a clean system is more efficient and does not use as much energy to maintain a comfortable temperature, ultimately saving you money on monthly utility bills 
  • Maintaining your HVAC system helps to extend equipment life, again saving you money!
