KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) Did you know that your air ducts act like the lungs of your home? According to Zerorez, air re-circulates through them an average of 5-7 times each day. This means as dirt, dust, dander, and chemicals build up in your home, they travel through your air ducts leaving those inside the home to breathe it all in. Consistent air duct cleanings are essential for maintaining a clean, healthy home the cleaning service states.

A clean HVAC system promotes a healthier indoor environment, which contributes to productivity, comfort, and a sense of health and well-being. Inviting Zerorez into your home allows them to use their top technology to make sure you are in good hands.

A powerful truck-mounted unit delivers the most effective air duct cleaning available by using a powerful whip line sent up each duct line from the furnace towards the vent coupled with a vacuum system using over 15,000 cfm.

Zerorez uses a patented technology that loosens embedded dirt with Zr Water, then extracts the water with a powerful airflow wand. This wand recaptures 2X the amount of water traditional carpet cleaning tools do. The result is a healthy clean that lasts.

So how often should you have your carpet cleaned? Zerorez mentioned that the frequency of cleaning depends on several factors. The National Air Duct Association states a typical household should clean its air duct system every 2-5 years. Some things that may lead a homeowner to consider more frequent cleanings include:

  • Pets that shed high amounts of hair or dander
  • Before occupancy of a new home
  • After home renovations or remodeling
  • Residents with allergies or asthma
  • Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
  • Maintenance or installation of new HVAC equipment
