When you are in your home your HVAC system supplies all of the air you, your family and your guests breathe. Is that air clean and free of things like dust, pollen, mold, and other contaminates that could jeopardize your health and aggravate your allergies? Or, is it dirty? If you are like most homeowners you have probably not given your HVAC system’s cleanliness much thought but it should be a priority for every homeowner because as air passes through a dirty HVAC it is then the air that you breathe. HVAC systems should be cleaned regularly. Cleaning an HVAC system can be challenging, even for an experienced and trained professional. Because everything that touches the HVAC system can essentially be passed into air that is inhaled it is important to be careful about proper cleaning. Think about your HVAC system and ductwork, it is the ideal breeding ground for bacteria and fungi because it is dark and cool. All of those microbiological contaminants are then passed through the air into your home – an upsetting thought for any homeowner. Rather than cleaning with chemicals, it is a better solution to clean with steam to offer the most natural and effective cleaning for your HVAC system.
In addition to vastly improved cleaning, steam cleaning your HVAC system will also improve your home’s energy efficiency. If you have ever seen a dirty HVAC system you might be shocked to see how much buildup there can be. All of that dirt and debris not only contaminates air but restricts effective airflow. To compensate, your home’s air conditioner has to work harder and run longer to properly cool your home. Once you have cleaned your HVAC system with steam you will know that air can flow freely through which will lower energy usage and, therefore, energy bills, and also extend the life of your air conditioner. How does a steam cleaner achieve so much with just water? The water is heated up to an extremely hot temperature (for example, 350 degrees Fahrenheit) and the steam penetrates surfaces and small, hard to reach areas, to blast away microscopic bacteria and dirt so that. Chemical cleaners only reach so far and leave a residue but steam is completely natural and gets into even the tiniest of parts. Ultimately, steam effectively cleans coils so that they can perform their tasks without being slowed down by dirt and debris which improves energy efficiency and better removes even microscopic germs to reduce airborne contaminants and help provide the best possibly breathing air.
