Allergy Season is Here!

May 28, 2019

Spring is finally here and with it comes flowers, sunshine, rain, and unfortunately, common allergy triggers such as dust and pollen. While it is common to view allergy triggers as a product of the outdoors, the reality is that a lot of dust and pollen gets carried into residential areas and becomes trapped inside peoples’ furnaces and ducts. With spring comes the necessity of spring cleaning.

Vacu-Man’s furnace and duct cleaning services are known for efficiently and reliably removing the accumulation of allergy-triggering substances such as dust, pollen, pet fur, plaster, sawdust and even sand (due to construction). This leads to not only negative allergic or respiratory reactions but also higher costs for cleaning bills, as well as less efficiency from the house’s heating and cooling system.

Low quality of air that has been polluted with allergens will also keep a homeowner from truly enjoying their home; common symptoms of allergies include congestion, sneezing, eye/throat irritation, itching, shortness of breath, and even swelling of eyes, throat, and face.  After a long, hard winter, a quick look into any warm air registers or fan compartments in one’s home, will reveal that they have become clogged with all sorts of debris. This, on top of all the new allergens entering the home in the springtime only serves to emphasize the importance of maintaining the cleanliness of the air in one’s home.

The average duct cleaning will take between 2 – 3 hours or slightly longer depending on the size of the home. When running a pipe through a home, Vacu-Man always uses clean drop sheets to avoid contaminating the carpets and floors; covers are also placed on corners to avoid chipping or scratching railings and walls. In order to improve air quality, Vacu-Man’s services will rid your furnace and duct systems of these allergy triggers. Your furnace will run more efficiently, and by breathing clean air of higher quality, you can enjoy spring without the allergy triggers that come with it.   Happy Spring!
