dirty vent from dirty ductwork in house
April 21, 2021

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America routinely ranks cities in Oklahoma among the worst in the nation for allergies, and now that it’s spring, many OK homeowners are suffering as tree pollen and grass pollen make being outside uncomfortable.

To make things worse, many non-pollen or outdoor-specific allergens may already be in your house, making it difficult for you to catch a break inside or out. If you’re looking for relief from health issues related to indoor air quality issues like allergies, duct cleaning can help!

Why Is My House Making Me Feel Sick?

When many people think of allergies, they think of ragweed pollen, or maybe food allergies. But there are actually other sources of allergies in a home that can create health issues and make you feel uncomfortable, including:

  • Dust

  • Mold spores

  • Dust mites

  • Pet dander

Common allergic reactions include sneezing, coughing, stuffy nose, itchy skin, and more. Unfortunately, your home’s HVAC system can unintentionally make the situation worse—if pollutant particles and allergens build up in your home’s heating and air conditioning ductwork, then they can be carried away as your HVAC system runs and be distributed back into the air you breathe throughout your home. 

How Duct Cleaning and Sanitization Can Help

Luckily, there are services available that make cleaning your ducts easy! At DeHart, we offer two separate air duct cleaning services, duct cleaning and duct fogging or sanitization.

Duct cleaning involves using a Rotobrush, a special machine with a vacuum hose and flexible wire brushes at the end. The machine is inserted into your ductwork, and the brushes dislodge built-up particles which are then vacuumed up and removed from your home.

AC duct sanitizing would then follow, where the ducts are treated with a sanitizing mist that eliminates germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, odors, rodent or insect infestations, and more.

Unlike seasonal allergies which are only around for certain parts of the year, duct sanitization and duct cleaning for your OK home in Duncan or Chickasha can come in handy year-round by helping to reduce common allergens in your indoor air that are always present, no matter what time of year it is. 

Homeowners often ask us, “How often should you clean your ducts?” While there’s no set answer, it isn’t a bad idea to have them cleaned every five years or so, or even more frequently if you think your HVAC system is heavily used.
