3 Deep Cleaning Tips to Lessen Allergy Flare-UpsPublished on: August 23, 2016
Over time, allergens collect all throughout an HVAC system, from the filters to the ducts. Keeping your unit clean of dust and debris will go a long way toward reducing your allergy flare-ups. Fortunately, you can take a number of small steps to help that will easily add up to increased health and comfort. These easy-to-implement cleaning tips from us here at AC Southeast® will make deep-cleaning your Georgia home a breeze.
Start With the HVAC Unit
You want to clean your HVAC unit thoroughly to eliminate any potential mold or mildew. Moreover, a unit with too much dust buildup inside will lead to damage over time and could be responsible for spewing allergens throughout your home. At the very least, maintaining a clean unit can help lower utility payments, which is an especially attractive option as energy bills continue to soar.
Clean the Carpets
Allergens love to cling to your carpets, so if you are serious about deep-cleaning your home, invest time here. A once- or twice-annual total steam clean can help keep the dust at bay and keep your home smelling fresh.
Don’t Forget Blinds and Ceiling Fans
Just like the carpets, blinds and ceiling fans tend to collect a lot of dust and debris. When sweeping your home for allergens, always check these areas and clean them thoroughly. If possible, dry clean your blinds. Use a step-ladder to reach every nook and cranny in the ceiling fan.
