Is It Really Worth Cleaning My Air Ducts?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you should clean your ducts as needed. While we advise against frequent routine cleaning, it is absolutely essential to clean your air ducts if you have any major indoor air quality issues.
Like any other part of your home, air ducts attract dust, vermin, mold, and other contaminants. Since they’re out of sight, they’re usually out of mind until it’s too late. Air duct cleaning can also give you a chance to determine if you have any structural defects that contribute to uncleanliness.
How Often Do I Need to Clean My Air Ducts?
Air ducts generally need to be cleaned every three to five years. Cleaning your air ducts frequently is unnecessary, and if they’re getting dirty quickly, that’s a sign of a larger issue with your ductwork.
The longer you leave dirty ducts uncleaned, the higher the risk of long-lasting damage that can cause even more issues in the long run. Investing in cleaning every couple of years can save you thousands of dollars in repairs, energy bills, and more.
Problems Associated with Dirty Air Ducts
Your air ducts can get dirty from a variety of sources.
Dust Build Up
If it’s been years since you’ve cleaned your air ducts, chances are you’ve probably accumulated quite a bit of dust inside. While a moderate amount of dust is standard, excessive dust build-up can cause a host of issues such as:
- Frequent dust throughout the home
- Energy inefficiency
The more you have dust and debris clogging your ducts, the harder it is on your HVAC system to pump and circulate air throughout the house. This can cause you to pay more for your electricity bills, wear down your HVAC unit, and allow for allergies to worsen.
Mold, Mildew, and Bacteria
Your air ducts can also be a breeding ground for biological hazards. Properly sealed air ducts often remain dry and inhospitable for biological contaminants to grow, but leaky ducts can allow for harmful mold, mildew, and bacteria to fester.
If there are any foul odors inside of your house that you just can’t seem to locate, chances are you need to clean your air ducts.
Rats, roaches, and other pests can call your air duct home. Air ducts are dark, cramped, and great places for pests to lay eggs and sleep in. They can cause considerable issues to your ducts and your home. Cleaning out your ducts can ensure that these pests don’t cause any further havoc.
How Do Your Technicians Clean Air Ducts?
Many cleaning companies will do a lazy job cleaning your air ducts. They will resort to using harsh chemicals and subpar tools to get the job done. Our licensed and trained technicians only use top-of-the-line tools and will never resort to using potentially harmful chemicals.
