When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Before you breathe it in, all the air in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants circulate through your ducts and into your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often is normal to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Air Quality Solutions considers numerous factors, including type of weather in Grove City, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other things, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At Air Quality Solutions, our professionals will talk through these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will circulate more smoothly and freely throughout your home.
