Why Pet Owners Should Regularly Clean Their A/C Ducts

Living on Cape Cod, there’s nothing better than that crisp, cool, clean air. When you spend time in your home, the last thing you want is air full of dust, dander, and the lingering scent of your pet. Air is the number one human necessity. We need clean air to live and breathe healthy lives. While there’s nothing like having a pet by your side to be your best friend and play pal, our furry friends shed and scratch, and as you probably guessed, all of that hair and dander get trapped in the air. If you’re a proud pet owner, then you should be having your ducts cleaned regularly.

If you’ve ever walked into your home and immediately smelled your pet, despite steaming, vacuuming, dusting, and using air fresheners, then you may not be able to get rid of the scent with simple steps such as those. The cause for the smell is that your pet’s dander is likely in your heating and cooling ducts. When air is pushed through the ducts, it moves the scent from one room to another where it will linger.

Top 3 Benefits of Having Your A/C Ducts Cleaned

  • Better-Smelling Air
    By cleaning your ducts, you not only remove pet dander, but you also get rid of dust and debris that carry the pet scent.
  • Increased Efficiency of Your Unit
    When you have dust, dander, and debris built up in your ducts, heated or cooled air has a more difficult time traveling through your vents. When you have your ducts cleaned, it will increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, also saving you money on your energy costs.
  • Improved Air Quality
    Along with better-smelling air, you’ll also be breathing cleaner, purer air because duct cleaning involves the removal of all dust, dirt, debris, dander, and other allergens that could cause respiratory upset.
