Professional Air Duct Cleaning vs DIY :: Which his Better?

The post has been sponsored by Air Duct Cleaning Service North TX - The Duct Kings Dallas to bring you this experience.

The First and Most Important Thing

What’s the first thing – the very first thing – that a baby does after it’s born?

Breathe. None of us can do anything without fresh air. Oxygen is life.

For a mother, there’s simply nothing more important than her child’s safety and health. Any and all of life’s concerns come in a distant second, even if we don’t consciously think about it. It’s just there.

It really isn’t too much of a stretch to say that our children’s safety is the first thing we think about in the morning and the last thing that we think about at night.

From the time that our children are born right up to and including adulthood (let’s face it, it really never stops), there are always different ‘dangers’, either lesser or greater, to which they may inadvertently expose themselves. We can’t always be there for them, and we certainly can’t control their actions.

We always try to protect them by controlling the things that we can. One of those things is the environment in our homes – and quite often, one of the most overlooked elements of providing a healthy environment is the one thing that we probably most take for granted – clean air.

Regular house maintenance is just part of the investment that we put into our homes. Making sure to maintain your home with a thorough air duct cleaning is one of the most basic ways that you can take care of your children. Reports from the National Air Duct Cleaners Association indicate that regular maintenance is necessary and that people who do so consistently experience healthier lives.

We may never physically notice the benefits of routine maintenance, but they’re there.

Clean the Dust and Debris in Your Home

One thing you never want is for your children to experience a difference in the quality of their breathing outside and inside. Your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system recycles and circulates air around your house. Depending upon where you live and how often you use it, over the course of time your air ducts could be pushing out all kinds of debris:

  • dust
  • dirt
  • particulates from mold and mildew
  • pet dander
  • particulates from pests (droppings)

…to name only a few.

Without regular cleaning, these elements begin to infect your air, build up in your ducts and air vents, and potentially affect the health of those whom you love most.

Even more importantly, should your child (or any family member, for that matter) have allergies or a pre-existing respiratory issue, dirty air ducts will only compound their problems.

Cleaning your air ducts regularly addresses these problems at their first, most basic level.

Increase the Life of Your HVAC System

While the first concern is always your children’s health, another is the investment you’ve made in your home. 

Let’s face it – you’ve sunk quite a bit of money into your house and will no doubt continue to do so. You also want to get the most out of the money that you spend on the different parts of your house.

Neglecting proper maintenance of your HVAC system will result in clogging of the ducts and vents. Because you have a clogged system, it has to work harder to achieve the desired effect or close to it. Further, all the increasing stress and strain on the system gradually decreases its working efficiency, and, in a worst-case scenario, you could need an entirely new system.

Of course, a mother will spare no expense for her children’s health – but why have to break the bank unnecessarily?

Reduce Billing Expenses

Problems with your system will reveal themselves in small ways over the course of an extended period of time. The first indications could well be the coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and itchy eyes of your children. What you will also notice, however, is that down the road your utility bills – and possibly even your medical bills – will become more expensive.

Why? Simple – it goes back to how hard your system is working. The harder it has to work, the more costly your electric bills will be. You also may be making additional trips to the doctor with your kids.

As mentioned above, one of the more important considerations in the regular maintenance of your air conditioning and heating system is where you live. If you live in Dallas, one of the things with which you have to contend on a daily basis is the unrelenting heat and humidity. 

Not only do you want to be able to come home to cool, clean, dry air, but the regular humidity can also quickly contribute to the build-up of mold in certain parts of your house.

Can I Clean The Air Ducts Myself?

You may be inclined to try to clean your ducts on your own, but first, consider a number of factors:

  • Am I handy/experienced enough?
  • Can I dedicate the proper amount of time to the project?
  • Do I have all the right tools for the job?
  • Will I do any damage to the system – and have to call professionals anyway?
  • Will my cleaning be thorough enough?

When you’re potentially dealing with your family’s health, these are all legitimate questions. The most important one you should ask is this, however –

Is it really worth it? Even if you manage to save some money, if the job isn’t done correctly, you still haven’t necessarily alleviated any health concerns.

And, it might just be thinking out loud, but it seems that no mom is going to put up with that.
