Is air duct cleaning essential? If watery eyes, sneezing and stuffy noses are common in your home, it could be a sign of dust, pollen, animal dander and even mold collecting in your ducts and circulating in your home.

Some inhabitants are more sensitive to these impurities than others, such as allergy and asthma sufferers, young children, and the elderly tend to be more vulnerable to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.
Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to look into air duct cleaning. Your home’s heating and cooling system takes air in and breathes air out which makes it similar to the lungs of your home.


Through living in a home, we create many contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These impurities are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated on average 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.

In addition to normal buildups of dust and dirt found in all homes with air ducts, there are several other factors that can increase the need for regular HVAC system cleaning:

  • Pets

  • Occupants with allergies or asthma.

  • Inside cigarette or cigar smoke.

  • Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system.

  • Home renovation or remodeling projects.


While dirty ducts don’t automatically mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring toxins that could cause serious complications for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders, or some environmental allergies.

Signs Your Air Ducts May Need Cleaning:

  • Allergy flare-ups.

  • Rapid dust build-up on furniture.

  • Visible dirt, dust or mold on vents.

  • Decreased air flow.


According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Even when filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.  Impurities in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder to maintain the temperature you desire and shorten the life of your system. When an HVAC system is clean, less energy is used which leads to improved cost-effectiveness.

Air conditioner/heater runs more efficiently saving you money on your energy bill.

Steamatic of Arkansas is proud to offer Fresh-Aire UV, makers of the world's best whole-house UV light and activated carbon air purifiers. These products clean the air throughout your home since they are installed directly inside your central air system. Microbes and odors are eliminated as air cycles repeatedly through the system.

According to the EPA indoor air is often five times more polluted than outdoor air.  Problems include odors, toxic chemical vapors, as well as mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens. Because they all pass through the central air system a whole-house air purifier from Fresh-Aire UV offers homeowners a practical and cost-effective solution.

A whole-house air purifier from Fresh-Aire UV can benefit your family in many ways.

  • Change your filter once every 30 to 60 days.

  • Vacuum your home one to two times per week to remove contaminants trapped in your carpet.

  • Avoid smoking in your home.

"The technicians were very pleasant to deal with. They were both very courteous and polite while here on my job. I am comfortable now that my vents are totally clean and free of dust and mold. My registers were all washed and cleaned and my house was also vacuumed to clean up any residue left on the floors. I would recommend Steamatic to my neighbors!"
