Improve the indoor air quality of your home
Many particles impact indoor air quality, which can have a significant effect on your health. Dust and mold spores can make even the healthiest of people suffer with irritation, sneezing, and watery eyes. Those who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions are at even greater risk of complications when airborne particles aren’t being filtered out efficiently. This is why periodic duct cleaning is so important. It is a simple way to improve the air quality in your home and ensure the health of everyone.
Air ducts typically only need to be cleaned every three to five years. Although, if your home is in an area which is more prone to dust and allergens or if you’ve recently had any construction done to your home then your ducts may need to be cleaned more often. There are some signs to look out for if your ducts require cleaning:
- If mold is found or suspected in the home. The HVAC system should be inspected for issued and the ducts should be cleaned and sanitized.
- If excessive debris has been accumulated in the air ducts. Excessive debris can cause airflow blockages or restrictions, which can lead to your HVAC system working harder and your utility bills increasing.
- If you have had a recent pest infestation. Cleaning the ducts can prevent the spread of allergens and disease-causing microorganisms.
- Other signs include if anyone in the household has an increase in allergy symptoms or the home has excessive amounts of dust.
