Air Duct Cleaning – Why it is important for your home

Posted by on August 28, 2011

If you have not had your air ducts cleaned in the last few years, or not since renovation or construction was done inside your home, then you should consider getting it done now.  The air we breathe in our homes can be full of germs and pollutants if it is coming out of dirty air vents.

Over the years, airborne pollutants such as dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander and other contaminants can accumulate in your ventilation system, affecting the quality of the air in your home.

These contaminants circulate in your home and the air you breathe. It can also affect the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems, leading to higher energy consumption and costs.   It is recommended that you clean your air duct system every 2 to 3 years.  If anyone in your home suffers from respiratory ailments like asthma or allergies or a weak immune system, then you should consider having your air ducts cleaned more often for improved air quality.

If you notice you have dust lines on your vent covers or clumps of debris in your ductwork, your air vents are probably due for a cleaning.  You can also tell when a cleaning is due if dust covers the furniture and floors within a couple of days after cleaning and vacuuming.  If you have done any construction or renovations in your home, chances are your air duct system needs cleaning to remove the resulting dust and dirt.
