Facts About Air Duct Cleaning

Clean Air Ducts

Have you ever wondered why going outside to get a bit of fresh air can make you feel so much better? No matter how hard you try to keep your home clean and fresh, it’s likely the quality of your home’s air isn’t as good as the air outside. Pet hair, dust, kitchen grease, and other pollutants can build up in your air conditioning ducts and spread to other rooms in the house.

Cleaning your air ducts can greatly improve indoor air quality and make your air conditioner run more efficiently too.

Facts About Air Duct Cleaning

  1. The increased energy efficiency of modern buildings often means poorer ventilation and, with it, poorer indoor air quality since dust can build up in air ducts.
  2. Air duct cleaning can help improve airflow through your ducts, improving the energy efficiency of your HVAC system and reducing your utility bills.
  3. Poorly sealed air ducts could harbor insects or other pests. It’s essential to clean and have your air ducts properly inspected and sealed.
  4. Most people spend at least half of their time indoors, breathing air circulated by an air conditioning system. If the air ducts are full of dust, pet dander, mold, or mildew, those contaminants reach the air.
  5. The average household produces 40 pounds of dust a year. That dust has to go somewhere, and any that isn’t picked up by a vacuum cleaner is likely to end up in your air ducts.
  6. If you can smell something off or see dust in the air blowing from your air vents, your air ducts are well overdue for cleaning.

How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?

It’s recommended to have your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years to remove household dust and other debris. Air duct cleaning is also recommended after home renovations and other construction work, which could have created excess dust and dirt.
