Let’s go over a few maintenance tips that you can follow to improve the air quality in your Chicago home, even if the air outside continues to decline.

Air Duct Cleaning and Dryer Vent Cleaning in Chicago

1. Clean Your Air Ducts

When Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning cleans your air ducts, we will physically remove the accumulated contaminants. Putting your heating and cooling system under negative pressure, we will use our specialized vacuum and cleaning tools to dislodge and remove debris from your home. We won’t leave any dust behind and will even provide before and after pictures to see the improvement with your own eyes. We will provide complimentary sanitization of your ducts upon request.

2. Use Efficient Air Filters

Air filters serve an important role as they help to remove small, airborne particles to decrease the amount of contamination in your home. If your filters become clogged, they can contribute to air pollution inside your house. Not only should you use efficient air filters, but you need to check them monthly and replace them at least every three months. This is one of the easiest ways to improve your home’s air quality.

3. Maintain Your HVAC System

Your HVAC system needs regular maintenance to prevent the accumulation of dust and prevent any leaks from occurring. The maintenance should include the cooling coils and drain pans. If any leaks are found, they should be addressed promptly before mold or other contaminants have a chance to grow. Not only will preventive maintenance contribute to better indoor air quality, but it will also prolong your HVAC system’s lifespan.

4. Clean Your Dryer Vents

You may not associate your dryer vent with air quality, but annual dryer vent cleaning will actually improve your indoor air quality. Lint buildup in your dryer vent creates moisture, which is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Dryer vent cleaning will not only help keep your home’s air free from contaminants, but it will also increase your dryer’s efficiency so that it consumes less energy and saves you money.
