Is Air Duct Cleaning of your HVAC system effective against COVID-19 and other viruses & bacteria?

By now, everyone is aware of the coronavirus and how it is spread. It is up to us to do our part to contain the spread, such as practicing social distancing, staying home when we can, and wearing masks in public or crowded places. However, COVID 19 can be spread in less obvious ways, such as the HVAC system.

In the early days of the pandemic, researchers were baffled that some people were contacting the coronavirus. They were never in direct contact with an infected person. Upon further research, they found that these people were in the same building with the same HVAC system as the COVID positive patrons. This has led them to speculate that the virus can be spread through the ventilation system.

A prime example of this taking place was on the Princess Cruise Ship early in March. The ship's crew thought they had everyone properly quarantine. However, many passengers still got the virus even though they were in an entirely different part of the ship than the infected people. The ship's air ducts were the perfect conduit to spread the virus-like wildfire throughout the ship with recirculated air.

Air ducts can accumulate dust and allergens that can hold on to bacteria and viruses. A dirty HVAC system can create diminished air quality throughout the building and lead to many different kinds of illnesses and allergy triggers. Scheduling regular cleaning with a trained professional will eliminate the danger from dusty and dirty air ducts.

Scientists are still studying the COVID-19 virus and are not entirely sure exactly how it is spread. Keeping your air ducts clean is just one of the many ways to cut down on the chance the virus is spread in that way.

Keeping your air ducts clean will reduce allergens and poor air quality and help you breathe better, and that is something we could all benefit from right now. Contact Gator Clean to schedule air duct cleaning for your home or business.

Daniele and Kelly did an awesome job cleaning my tile and grout, my floors already looked great, and then they came back and colorsealed my grout. I love it!! I always lived my porcelains plank floors, but hated my grout color. Now I REALLY love my floors!!

I spoke to Danielle about coming to clean my AC ducts and she was an absolute delight to work with. She was informative and honest. The scheduling happened immediately and they arrived in the next couple of days. The service was thorough and professional. They cleaned everything perfectly and even cleaned up after themselves. When they left, it was like they were never there, except my vents look better than ever! I would highly recommend their services. We talked and joked while they worked and it was a delightful experience. They only took about two hours to get everything done and I couldn't be happier with their work! 5 stars!!!

Cost Factors in Cleaning the Air Ducts of a Florida Home.

The cost of maintaining a home can add up pretty fast. Unlike renting, homeowners are solely responsible for repairs and upkeep of the various parts of their house. Some maintenance issues are more pressing than others, leaving many problems to simmer on the back burner. This has the potential to create a more giant headache out of issues you thought weren't that big of a deal.
