OneCall, based in Houston, Texas, has announced that they can help people who are in need of services for air duct cleaning in Sugar Land and other cities in Texas. Air ducts are the pathways for the cooled air or heated air to travel from the air conditioning equipment or furnace to various parts of the home or building. The problem is that over time, indoor pollutants such as mold, fungi, and other allergens such as dirt, dust, pet dander, smoke, pollen, insect debris, and other minute particles can accumulate in several places in the air ducts. Also, these may also accumulate in the fan blades and other parts of the HVAC system.
If those dust, dirt and other particles are not cleaned, these indoor air pollutants will be recirculated into the air and can possibly cause health problems for the people living in the home or building. However, the cleaning of air ducts and other parts of the HVAC system has to be done by professionals as this can be dangerous for those who don’t have the appropriate knowledge, experience and equipment. Inexperienced people may also inadvertently cause damage to the HVAC system.
One important reason why periodic air duct cleaning is necessary is because mold and fungal spores, when given the proper conditions, can grow and multiply to toxic levels. These can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, disorientation, and fatigue. Toxic fungi at high levels has been said to cause or worsen asthma, heart disease, or even cancer. That is why the services of OneCall as provider of Houston air duct cleaning services, including in other Texas cities, are vital.
Experts recommend that air ducts be cleaned regularly to protect the health of the people who are living in the home or are working in a building. This can also help in a better and more efficient functioning of the HVAC system because the dust, dirt, pollen and other items, if the accumulated quantity is sufficiently large, can hinder the air flow and force the motors to work harder.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental health risks in the United States. Research studies have revealed that indoor air is usually two to five times more polluted compared to the outside air. And because people tend to spend most of their time indoors, they are actually breathing in some of those dust, dirt, mold, fungi, and a lot more, most of the time.
In addition to the health impact of these accumulated dusts, dirt and other air contaminants in the air ducts, they can also cause serious mechanical problems for the HVAC system. The accumulated dust and dirt can reduce the area for air flow, thus causing the blowers, fans and motors to work harder and consumer more energy. The impact is not just higher energy bills also a possibly shorter life for the HVAC system. In the end, if homeowners and property owners are trying to save money by not having the air ducts cleaned, these “savings” may be eaten up later on by the higher costs of repair and maintenance and higher energy costs.
Those who need air duct cleaning services in Sugar Land and in other cities in Texas can simply contact OneCall to make sure that professionals will get their air ducts cleaned. There are a number of signs that homeowners and other property owners may look into to find out if their air ducts already need cleaning. These include the accumulation of dust on the return air filters, especially if there is a thick and fuzzy dust coating; dirt, matted dust, or debris found under vent covers; and a furnace air vent clogged with dust, causing more dust to get to the return ductwork.
