Your air ducts are not something you think about on a daily basis, but there will come a time when air duct cleaning is necessary in your home. How do you know when the ducts need to be cleaned? Here are a few reasons to have them cleaned.
- They’ve never been cleaned
If you have lived in your home a number of years and you know the ducts have never been cleaned, it’s probably a good idea to have it done. Indoor air is 70 times more polluted than outdoor air and the air ducts carries those pollutants through the house.
- Your family has allergies
If anyone in your family struggles with allergies, your air ducts can exacerbate the issue. Air ducts pull dust and other contaminants from the furnace and put them into the air. The more often the ducts are cleaned, the better off the allergies are.
- Your basement flooded
If your basement is wet or flooded in the past, there might be mold and mildew in the ducts. This needs to be cleaned out as soon as possible.
- You remodeled
If you did any remodeling in your home in recent years, there is likely a lot of remodeling dust circulating through your house in the ducts.
- You have to dust all the time
If you dust your house and turn around to find new dust layers settling immediately, the air ducts need to be cleaned. You will have to clean the surfaces less frequently after the ducts are clean.
