Contaminants We Find During Duct Cleaning

*DuAll Heating & Cooling no longer offers duct cleaning services. Take a look at our other indoor air quality services to find the best solution for your needs.

If you have a forced-air heating and air conditioning system then many different kinds of contaminants can start to accumulate in them. When you run your AC or heater, those contaminants can get picked up and carried into your home. Most people don’t realize what kind of things can get caught in their ducts so we thought it would be a good idea to put together some of the most common pollutants that we find.

Common Duct Contaminants

Probably the most common contaminant that we find is dust which is primarily composed of dead skin cells. During the winter when the air gets drier dust levels can increase. Because modern homes are built very efficiently it can allow indoor air contaminants to increase in the air—including dust. During regular duct cleaning, our technicians will thoroughly vacuum out your home’s ducts and remove most of the dust. Dust is a common allergen and it can also build up on your home’s furniture.

Pet dander is another common contaminant that can cause comfort problems in your home. If you have pets in your home it likely means that your ducts have a lot of pet dander in them. Pet dander is another common allergen that can wreak havoc on the comfort of people who are allergic to them.

Pollen and insect droppings are also very common to find in ductwork. Insect droppings from dust mites and cockroaches are terrible allergens for many people. During duct cleaning our technicians will vacuum out many of those contaminants which could increase the comfort of people in your home.
