There are few things worse than a bad smell that you just can’t get rid of. It starts as an unpleasant smell in one area of the house but eventually affects the entire home. You check everywhere, but can’t find the source of the odour. Believe it or not, it’s pretty common for these odours that seem to stink up the entire house to originate in the home’s air ducts.
If you’ve got a bad smell that you just can’t pinpoint, residential duct cleaning performed by a team of experts could be just the solution you need to be rid of the odour once and for all.
Determining the Cause of the Smell
Many indoor odours can be traced back to mold, a dead animal, pets, or smoking. When mold starts to grow in your home, after water damage or flooding for instance, it can settle in the air ducts and will give off a musty smell as it spreads. Dead animals, like a mouse or other rodents, will emit rancid smells, while household pets will sometimes urinate in air ducts without their owners’ knowledge, causing a very unpleasant urine smell to spread throughout the home. Lastly, cigarette smoke residue gets trapped in air ducts and spreads into other rooms when the heating or cooling system is turned on.
Hire Residential Duct Cleaning Experts
