Due to the fact that the Minneapolis area is subjected to such frigid temperatures, relying on a heating system is a must to survive the winter. Beyond adjusting the thermostat to ensure their comfort during this time, however, few people devote much thought to what goes on within their HVAC system. Not doing so, though can subject you to an array of health issues. Regularly having your air ducts cleaned can improve your health and here's why. 

1. Removal of Dust

Dust is an inevitable part of life, but too much of it can interfere with your health. For those people who are sensitive to its effects, prolonged exposure to dust can lead to sneezing, allergies and hay fever. Though your HVAC system likely comes with filters that must be changed regularly so that this dust can be trapped before it reaches you, they cannot do the job alone. Removing the dust from your air ducts prevents it from reaching your filters in the first place. 

2. Removes Mold and its Spores

Mold gets talked about a great deal in the media -- and for good reason. Mold is not just unsightly and smelly, it can also compromise your health. Prolonged exposure to mold can increase the chances of respiratory problems, especially for those family members with compromised immune systems as well as children and the elderly. 

3. Removes Bacteria and Mites

Microscopic organisms can cause huge problems for you and your family, especially when they are being forcefully blown throughout your home by your HVAC system. Because an air duct cleaning systematically goes through each part of your system, it is thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom, removing these unwanted materials.
