Homeowners and business owners rely on their HVAC systems to keep their properties comfortable year-round. However, if you neglect proper maintenance and cleaning, you may be putting yourself and those around you at risk. One of the most common issues that can arise from a lack of HVAC ductwork maintenance is blocked air ducts, which can pose a number of potential hazards.

How Can My Ducts Harm Me?

The Orlando Duct Cleaning Professionals at Duck Squad review some of the potential hazards of blocked HVAC ducts and how we can help.

Health Hazards

First and foremost, blocked air ducts can lead to poor air quality. When air cannot circulate freely through your HVAC system, it can become stagnant and contaminated with dust, dirt and other harmful particles. This can exacerbate allergies, asthma and other respiratory issues, and can even lead to more serious health problems over time.

Operational Hazards

In addition to poor air quality, blocked HVAC ducts can also cause your system to work harder than it should in order to maintain a comfortable temperature. This can lead to increased energy usage and higher utility bills, as well as unnecessary wear and tear on your equipment. Over time, this can cause your system to break down prematurely, requiring costly repairs or replacement.

Fire Hazards

Finally, blocked air ducts can also pose a fire hazard. When dust and debris accumulate in your ducts, they can become ignited by the heat of your HVAC system, causing a potentially dangerous fire. This risk is particularly high if you have flammable materials in your ducts, such as insulation or paper.

The Duck Squad Can Help!

To avoid these potential hazards, it’s important to have your HVAC system inspected and cleaned regularly by a qualified Orlando-based Duct Cleaning Professional. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (ADCA) recommends that you get your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. However, some households or businesses need to get service more or less often, depending on how quickly your ductwork gets contaminated with pollutants.

The Orlando Duck Squad can inspect and clean residential and commercial HVAC ducts to help eliminate the above risks to your health, operations and property. We use the latest equipment to safely and effectively loosen and vacuum debris from your ducts and not release it into your home or business. We can also detect and remove blockages from damaged HVAC duct material or insulation. You, your family and your customers can breathe easier with professionally cleaned HVAC ducts that remove harmful particles and substances.

Blocked HVAC ducts can pose a number of potential hazards if left unchecked. By investing in regular maintenance and cleaning, you can avoid these risks and ensure that your system is operating safely and efficiently for years to come. Call the Duck Squad in Orlando, Florida, today if you suspect a blocked air vent or ductwork in your home or business.

    I had an awesome experience with Josh and his Duck Squad Company - set the appointment on a Wednesday, and he was able to come by Friday. I had purchased a new dryer and noticed that the 'check vent' light (red) was on, coupled with an AF code indicating there was an air flow problem. Since I had spent quite a bit on the dryer, I expected the 'good air flow' (green) light to be on! I contacted Lowes and they delivered me a new dryer, however same problem!! I knew then it was my vent problem and not a dryer problem. That's when I contacted Josh with Duck Squad. He was very personable and professional, even allowing me to lurk over his shoulder so I could see the mess he extracted from my dryer vent. Through discussion, it was clear that Josh is a family man and cares about conducting good business. And that he did! The green light is on and my drying time has significantly decreased! My only regret, is that I waited this long to get it cleaned and how much time, money, and energy was wasted from not doing so earlier. Thanks so much Josh and Duck Squad! I highly recommend!

    This was a great experience from start to finish. Friendly, informative staff in the office and the field. This was a great investment as we were all suffering from the mold in the ducts. We immediately began feeling better.

    I had a problem with my clothes dryer. Made an appointment for the next day, service arrived super punctual. Josh Douglas cleaned out the dryer hose and dryer, solved the problem in no time. I would highly recommend this company and Josh in particular. He is very ethical and takes pride in his job. Thank you Josh!
