How HVAC Cleaning can Help You Fight Back Against the Flu

March 13, 2020

How healthy is your home’s HVAC system? Did you know that one of the leading causes of childhood asthma and the spreading of flu-like viruses are dirty air ducts? What lurks behind those walls can cause plenty of sicknesses. When was the last time you thoroughly looked at your air ducts? After five years, dirt can build up in your air ducts, trapping airborne containments, which cause your eyes to get red and irritated. Aside from the flu, poor indoor air quality can spread colds and pollutants that aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms. But there is hope. Here are some pointers on HVAC cleaning and how to properly give your home a deep clean to fight back against those nasty viruses.

Give Your A.C. a Good Clean


The very first step in the home cooling process starts with none other than your air conditioner. It makes the most sense to clean it so it will not taint the rest of your HVAC system. The fans that blow fresh air throughout your duct system can become caked with dust and debris. Along with spreading unclean air, excessive buildup of debris and dirt can add weight to the blower. Your HVAC’s coils can become dirty with the right combination of moisture and heat in the air. This can lead to nasty odors and might even spread mold spores.

Clean Out Those Ducts

This is a crucial part of the HVAC cleaning process. After getting your A.C. cleaned, preferably by the professionals from Hydro Clean, the next part is your ductwork. Air flows through the ducts and exits out through the air registers in each room of your house. So if the ducts are too filthy, the flow of air can kick up dirt and dust and blow it into your home. You can wipe any dirt from the air register, but to do an actual duct cleaning, you’ll need the help of qualified professionals.

Install an Air Purification System

With your air conditioning unit and ducts cleaned, you’ll have significantly reduced the potential for spreading germs and viruses throughout your home. What you need now is a better approach to fighting off those germs, and you can do this with an air purifier. Air purification systems will actively scrub the air that goes through your air circulation, eliminating any dust, dirt, or other contaminants.

If you have any questions about HVAC cleaning or air duct cleaning, give Hydro Clean a call! We use a powerful H.E.P.A. Filtered Vacuum System to pull the contaminants out of the air ducts and through the filtration system returning clean air into your home. Once your system is cleaned, all access holes will be resealed, restoring your system to its original, clean condition.
