4 Reasons to Get Duct Cleaning

Did you know that your ductwork needs to be cleaned every once in a while?  If you didn’t, not to worry, you are not the first. When it comes to your ducts, we have found that out of sight unfortunately often means out of mind. That’s why we are bringing up the importance of duct cleaning today!

Cleaning your ductwork is not something that you should attempt on your own. Thankfully, it is also not something that you need all too often. However, having professional duct cleaning performed when necessary can make a huge difference in your indoor air quality. Let us explain why it is worthwhile to have this job performed.

Why Duct Cleaning is Worthwhile

Scheduling duct cleaning services can help your indoor air quality and your home comfort in the long run. Here’s how:

  1. Improves airflow into your home. We realize it may not seem like it but a collection of dirt and debris in your ductwork can have an impact on your AC system. That reduction in the strength of the airflow into your home can cost you energy and comfort. Cleaning the build-up restores proper airflow into your home.
  2. Removes dust that would be blown into your home otherwise. Dust doesn’t settle in your ducts forever. When your AC turns on, the air flowing through your ductwork will end up picking up some of that dust and spreading it throughout your home. This reduces your indoor air quality until you get your ducts cleaned.
  3. Reduces airborne contaminants that would trigger allergies. Do you have allergies or respiratory issues? Duct cleaning is a great idea for your home then because removing that dirty build-up from your ducts can prevent it from causing you health problems.
  4. Reduces risk of mold growth in your ductwork. Did you know that your ductwork is a perfect breeding ground for mold? Don’t worry it doesn’t mean that you are guaranteed to have mold in your ductwork. However if you have noticed symptoms that match with reaction to mold spores it may be worth it to have your ducts checked to see if there is mold growing in them. If there is duct cleaning is a great way to get rid of it.

How Often to Schedule Duct Cleaning

You may be happy to hear that duct cleaning isn’t a service that you’ll need as often as you might an AC tune-up. This is a task that you can have taken care of every few years when the level of dirt build-up in your ductwork starts to become problematic. That said, if you are having increasing indoor air quality issues more often than this, it doesn’t hurt to have a professional come to check things out.

Whether it is duct cleaning, duct repairs, or another HVAC service, you should always have a trained professional be the person to take care of these tasks. Our team is here to provide when you need expert assistance.
