When is the right time to clean my air ducts?

If you have found traces of mold in your home and suspect there may be mold in your air ducts you should have them looked at by a professional. Similarly, if you have recently experienced a pest infestation of any kind, cleaning your ducts can ensure the pests are gone and that there is nothing dangerous left behind in your air ducts. If you can see debris in the air coming through the registers when cooled air exits the vents, you are definitely over due for a cleaning.

If you do not experience any immediate signs that your ducts are in need of a cleaning, usually every three to five years is an adequate period between full air duct cleanings. Other times that may call for a cleaning include:

  • When you move into a new home
  • After building a new home, or after completion of a home remodeling project
  • If residents have extreme allergies
  • If residents have a pet or pets that shed fur or dander

As you can imagine, when a professional cleans an air duct system they improve the quality of air in the home by reducing dirt, dust and debris, however you may not realize that other objects may be implementing the efficiency and quality of your air flow such as:

  • Keys
  • Electronics and television remote controls
  • Coins
  • Jewelry
  • Toys and Lego Blocks
  • Dog Bones, Cat Toys

Even more random objects have been found by professionals in the past such as beer bottles, newspaper clippings and VHS tapes!

Why is air duct cleaning important?

Quality of life can be impacted greatly by regularly cleaning your air ducts, and ensuring to follow up if your air ducts may have been compromised by any specific event. Clean air can help minimize the effects of allergies as well as avoid breathing complications. Along with health and safety, you can save money on your heating and cooling bills if you make sure your system is running efficiently, which can be negatively affected by dirty air ducts.
