Inevitably, the air duct of your HVAC system will become contaminated with airborne pollutants. Eventually, these pollutants will accumulate inside the ducts and affect the air quality of your home. Included among the possible contaminants are pet dander, bacteria, carbon monoxide, and dust mites.
Estimates from the National Air Duct Cleaners Association estimate that the average home collects 40 pounds of dust a year. These pollutants flow throughout the space, triggering allergies and irritating respiratory conditions. They are especially harmful to children and the elderly. Below you will find the top 5 benefits of air duct cleaning from Advanced Cleaning Service:
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association highly recommend that you have your ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years. Other experts have suggested, depending on your particular situation, cleaning could be required every 2 to 5 years. The frequency of the cleaning will be contingent on factors like how often the system is used, where you are located and whether anyone in the home has asthma, allergies or other respiratory conditions.
The benefits of air duct cleaning include creating a healthier and happier environment for family members. This should be done, as recommended, to prevent the negative effects of a contaminated system.

A good power washing is crucial when you want to update the exterior paint on your home, deck or fence. This is because the wash helps remove dirt, mildew and broken down paint residues that keeps fresh coats of paint and stain from adhering to your exterior surface.
Further, pressure washing has some other great benefits to keep in mind.
#1 - Improves Curb Appeal
Every spring, homeowners spend tons of time working on updating their landscaping and decorations, and your home’s exterior siding/brick and fencing being clean should be no exception to the update. Having your paint or stain look new and clean adds to the overall look and feel, and is especially important when it comes time to sell your home.
#2 - Increases Your Home’s Value
According to Consumer Reports*, a good power washing along with needed paint touch ups and siding/brick replacements can help increase the value of your home by as much as 2-5%. As mentioned earlier, these updates are crucial when it comes time to sell your home.
#3 - Preventative Maintenance for your Home
Regularly scheduled power washings will prevent grime and mildew from breaking down your home’s exterior, causing you to worry less about having to replace rotted wood, chipped paint and premature aging of your home. A good power washing before you paint will also help your new paint job last much longer than if you painted over dirty siding or brick.
#4 - Protects Against Harmful Bacteria
Your home’s exterior surfaces accumulate dirt, grime, mildew and other bacteria that are wise to avoid, as some can be harmful to us. Having a power washing done yearly helps ensure that you are removing these contaminants, keeping you and your pets safe from getting sick.

While you can rent or purchase your own residential pressure washer, keep in mind that is expensive, time consuming and in some cases dangerous if you aren’t familiar with how to work one. Dangers include using too much pressure or the wrong nozzle causing wrecked surfaces, broken windows and injuries to others or yourself. In addition, residential pressure washers are do not have the same pressure that our commercial units can provide and do not use hot water which increases the cleaning power exponentially.
