Do Your Air Ducts Need Cleaned?

If you have one or more of the following conditions, it is recommended that you have your ducts cleaned at a minimum of once per year, if not twice.
  • Your home contains smokers.
  • You have pets in your household.
  • The area you live in is known for having high pollen count.
  • The area you live in has high levels of moisture or humidity.
  • You have recently completed a home renovation project or you have just purchased a newly constructed home.
  • Frequently use chemical cleaning products.
  • Your home has suffered flood damage.
  • You live near industries that emit a lot of smoke and other pollutants.
  • There are rodents such as mice and rats running through the ducts.
Contaminants in your ducts can affect your health.  As the particles blow through the home, occupants are at a high risk of inhaling them.  This can lead to such health problems as asthma and other respiratory illnesses, sinus problems, constant coughing and sneezing, severe allergies, headaches, and sleep problems. Some benefits of having your ducts cleaned include:
  • Good for your heating/cooling system:  Most duct system failures occur because of an accumulation of dust and dirt.  By cleaning your ducts, your system will be more efficient and could lower your energy costs.  The EPA states that a buildup of just .042 inches of dirt on heating or cooling coil can result in a 21% decrease in efficiency.
  • Healthier children:  If you have children, you know that they need to eat healthy and get regular exercise to grow into healthy adults.  Because children's immune systems are still developing, they are at a higher risk of illness.
  • High risk individuals:  People who already have a health condition such as asthmatics and the elderly will benefit a great deal.  They will breath better and the risk of developing respiratory illness will be reduced.
Once your air ducts have undergone a thorough cleaning by trained professionals, there will no longer be any containments being blown throughout your home.
