Ductwork moves a great volume of air between the air handler in your home and the vents in each room of the house. It does this for hundreds of days every summer and winter and as a result, a lot of debris can build up in the ductwork. That debris, which includes dust, pollen, dander and other organic material, can foster the growth of bacteria, viruses and mold if not cleaned on a regular basis.
If you are concerned about the cleanliness of your ductwork or need to discuss the South Florida duct sanitization process with one of our technicians, call Solar Bear today.
Miami and West Palm Beach Duct Sanitization
Normal duct cleaning removes the dust and other debris that build up in your ducts over time. The goal of duct cleaning in Miami is to ensure optimal efficiency and to reduce airflow problems that might put wear on your air handler or lead to a buildup of allergens in your home.
However, duct cleaning does not remove the bacteria, viruses or mold spores that also started to grow in your ducts between seasons. Even with a UV germicidal light system, these microbes could remain alive in your ductwork until your heating or cooling system is turned on next.
Duct Sanitization in Miami and Fort Lauderdale
Duct sanitization in Weston and other West Palm Beach homes is used to remove microbes and germs from your ductwork, as well as serves to prevent them from returning by clearing away any potential growth mediums in your ductwork. Two things can occur after duct sanitization to ensure the problem does not recur.
A UV germicidal light system will kill most germs as they pass through the ductwork when the air handler is on. Additionally, a dehumidifier will remove excess humidity from the ductwork in South Florida’s humid summer months and make it much harder for germs to grow. Without moisture, it is nearly impossible for bacteria, viruses or mold to take hold and start to grow.
