The Importance of Duct Cleaning for Allergies, Butler, Arkansas

When it comes to maintaining a clean and healthy home, it’s essential to keep up with HVAC maintenance, such as replacing filters and scheduling inspections. Your ductwork plays an integral role in the quality of your indoor air, which is why you also shouldn’t neglect routine duct cleaning. Here is an overview of the importance of duct cleaning to prevent allergy symptoms.

Indoor Air Supply

duct cleaningDuctwork is responsible for circulating warm or cool air throughout your business. Over time, however, allergens and pollutants can build up in the ducts, which end up contaminating your indoor air supply. This can exacerbate allergy symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, watery eyes, and congestion. It can also increase the likelihood of an asthma attack for those with asthma.

Mold & Mildew

In addition to contaminants — such as pollen — contaminating your indoor air supply, you can also be at risk for more serious issues such as mold and mildew. These fungi grow in areas of moisture — such as the air vents — and release spores throughout your home that can trigger allergies as well as other symptoms such as fatigue and dizziness. When left to grow and thrive, it can also lead to chronic respiratory infections.


Failing to clean your ductwork can also cause dust to build up throughout your home. No matter how often you remove dust from your furniture and carpets, you may find that you’re performing excessive housework with little results when it circulates through your air supply. Dust is a common trigger of allergy symptoms, which is why it’s crucial to prevent it from building up in your home.
