Should I Schedule a Duct Cleaning?
Your home’s air ducts will get dirty just like any other part of your home. All of your breathing air is pushed through these ducts when you use your furnace or central air. Dust, hair and other debris that got through your HVAC filter will slowly accumulate in your ducts. Keep an eye out for these signs that it may be time for a professional duct cleaning.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Excessive pollutants, pet hair and contaminants in your ducts can lower your overall air quality. Your household may struggle with unexplained illness or persistent fatigue. You’ll have a harder time keeping the home clean and may feel more comfortable outdoors. If you’ve just moved into a new home or can’t remember when the ducts were last cleaned, it’s time to schedule professional services.
Too much moisture in the ducts can lead to issues with your home’s humidity level. You may notice frequent condensation or visible signs of mold and mildew. An outbreak of spores can lower your indoor air quality and increase your risk of rust, increase issues with your HVAC system and even attract pests.
If your home is experiencing rodent and pest problems, you may be overdue for a duct cleaning. Insects and small animals thrive in dark and humid environments. They make their nests in the excess debris in your air ducts before multiplying and overtaking your home. The best way to minimize pest and humidity issues is with regular air duct cleaning services every few years.
