Professional air duct cleaning for your Salt Lake City home is the best way to keep things like dirt, debris, allergens, and other harmful things from circulating through your home. Most homeowners don’t think much about what might be inside your air ducts, but if you haven’t had them professionally cleaned in the last few years, they could be harboring all kinds of undesirable things.

A typical family living in a 3-bedroom home will generate about 40 pounds of dust every year just from your day-to-day activities. You can often see this dust on furniture and floors, or in fabrics like curtains and upholstery. With all that dust floating around, some of it will inevitably end up in your HVAC system, where the furnace and air conditioner re-circulate it several times every day throughout your home.

These allergens can get caught anywhere in your HVAC system, from supply and return ducts to heat exchangers, blowers, and filters, and a professional duct cleaning is the best way to remove them.
