Why Duct Cleaning is important after every Renovation or Construction?

Many people assume that duct cleaning is not necessary after a renovation or construction. However, the truth is that tiny particles, such as dust, debris or chemicals travel to the ducts. This is not visible, yet after we perform duct cleaning, you will instantly notice the change. Your home is the place where you spend most of your time and live your cherished moments. We want you to enjoy completely, and in order to so, we promise that we will fulfill the needed tasks in your home. After construction or a major renovation in the house, dust is trapped in the ducts. There is nothing to be worried about, if this occurs. However, duct cleaning is essential at this step, because there is contaminated airflow. Although, there isn’t scientific proof to show that duct cleaning improves the health condition of people, it is still a crucial step to avoid any type of health problem. There are several benefits of duct cleaning after renovations, such as, the improved air quality can prevent people’s allergies or even asthma. Others may get sick from the poor air quality circulating in the house. So it is a good precautionary step to avoid presumable problems. Also, duct cleaning will remove dust or debris from your home’s HVAC system. This is also necessary as this system needs to remain clean in order to provide the home with fresh airflow. Moreover, when the HVAC system is clean, it does not have to work as hard to maintain the room temperature. Less energy is required, which means energy costs savings for our customers. We are ready to...

Check if your Furnace Filter is Black

One and only purpose of a furnace filter is to protect the furnace from damage caused by dust, lint, or foreign objects that find a way into the air stream. Without filtering, these particles may cause damage to the furnace or, at a minimum, reduce the overall furnace efficiency; which will cost you more in energy.  A lot of air carrying dust particles moves through your furnace. As dust and deposits accumulate, your furnace has to work harder and harder to draw air through the filter. A black furnace filter is a red flag that something could be seriously wrong with your heating system. While it may be that you haven’t changed the filter in a really long time, it could be a sign of more serious problems including: •    Inadequate combustion air •    Carbon Monoxide •    Mould Inadequate air supply or carbon monoxide can both cause soot to form on the filter.  And, mould in your home can be a serious health hazard. Change your Furnace filter every three month to protect your equipment from unnecessary breakdown. Call Unique Duct Cleaning for more information 905-456-8940 Source:...
