Indoor air pollution is a growing concern amongst homeowners. When you’re in the comfort of your house, you want yourself and your family members to breath in fresh air that’s free of any contaminants. To keep the air in your home pure, clean air ducts play an important role. Air ducts are the passages for your HVAC system to deliver and remove air. Over time, pollutants from indoor environment like carpets, dust, pets, hair, etc. can enter your homes ductwork. The pollutants then circulate around your home continuously. So it’s important that you get your air ducts cleaned every 2 to 3 years by professional duct cleaners.

What is Duct Cleaning?
Duct cleaning is the process of cleaning the various heating and cooling system components of a homes forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.
Over time, these components get contaminated by different air-borne pollutants that increase indoor air pollution. That is why these components should be maintained and cleaned by professionals after a certain period of time. The air-borne pollutants that love sticking to these components are pollen, dust, smoke, hairs, debris etc. If there is moisture present inside these components, water-loving bacteria and smores are also produced which take their part in increasing the indoor pollution. These pollutants can result in irritation in nasal passages, respiratory problems and can cause allergic reactions. If you notice these conditions in your family’s health, there’s a possibility that you need to get your air ducts cleaned.
Circumstances In Which Duct Cleaning Is Absolutely Recommended
We recommend having your ducts cleaned every 2-3 years if you have a larger amount of carpeting and pets. In some cases you may be good for 4-5 years without a cleaning. Besides routine cleaning, there are some circumstances in which you should definitely have your ductwork cleaned:
1. After renovating
After a certain period of time, every homeowner wants to remodel their house or office for some improvements. After the renovations are complete, it becomes necessary to clean the air ducts because remodeling activities like carpeting, painting, drilling etc. produce many harmful pollutants that enter and get adhered to your ductwork and then circulate around the house. You can minimize this by covering your ducts but even then, some amount of contaminants still enter the ductwork.
2. After relocating to a new house or office
When you move into a new home or office, you’re never really sure when the previous owner had their last duct cleaning session. There are chances it could have been ages or ago or maybe even never! So, there’s a great chance that the air ducts are contaminated and are in need of service.
3. Mold problem
There are serious health effects associated with mold. If you know or suspect that your home suffers from a mold problem, getting a duct cleaning session done is a must.
4. The presence of pets in house
Pet hairs can get sucked into your ductwork and settle inside and can cause irritation and allergies when they get air-borne. Homes with the presence of pets require more frequent duct cleaning sessions. If you own pets, we recommend that you get your ducts cleaned every 2 to 3 years.
5. Residents are becoming frequently ill or allergic
The pollutants in your ductwork can result in illnesses and allergic reactions. If your family members or colleagues are frequently getting sick, it might be a sign that your home or office ducts need cleaning.
6. Pollutants are visible around the ducts
Sometimes the ductwork may be so severely contaminated that you can actually see the contaminants flying around the home or see pollutants around the ductwork. This is a sign that the ducts are not clean and require proper, long overdue attention.
7. Animal infestation
Any trace of animal infestation in the home or nesting inside your ducts warrants removal of them and cleaning of the ductwork system.
8. Significant time has passed by since your last cleaning
You should also consider having your ducts cleaned simply because the air ducts get dirty over time and should be cleaned occasionally. If it’s been more than 2-3 years since your last duct cleaning, it’s time for your next cleaning session.
Some Of The Many Advantages Of Duct Cleaning
Cleaning and maintaining your air ducts have numerous benefits:
1. Cleaner indoor environment
Duct cleaning helps in the removal of pollutants to substantially improve the air quality inside your home or office. Air ducts circulate the air from your cooling and heating system to the various parts of your home. This circulation of air in your home through your ducts happens multiple times a day. This is the air you live and breathe in, which is why this air should be clean and pure. That’s why proper cleaning is so important. The average home can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust each year! This dust adheres to ductwork and becomes airborne. The duct cleaning process ensures the removal of dust, debris and dirt, ensuring that these harmful particles don’t find their way back into your home ductwork and start recirculating.
2. Removal of irritants and allergens
After a certain period of time, many allergens and pollutants get settled inside your ducts and result in allergies and the aggravation of any respiratory conditions. Thorough cleaning of the air ducts ensures that the harmful bacteria and other pollutants are removed so you get only clean air to breath.
3. Removal of microbial organisms
The duct cleaning process also removes moisture from the ducts, making sure that mold and other water-loving bacteria don’t have the environment required to reproduce.
4. Removal of odors and smells
Is the air in your home smelling foul? Pets, food smells, smoking, mold etc. can lead to bad odors in your home. A deep cleaning of your air ducts helps in the removal of odor trapping particles, leading to a fresher smelling home.
5. Increase the durability of your HVAC system
The dirtier your air ducts are, the harder your heating and cooling system needs to work to push air through your ducts and circulate it. There may come a time when you might need to replace your ducts instead of being able to clean and salvage them. Regular maintenance is significantly cheaper than having to replace your ducts completely.
6. Increase electricity efficiency
Dirty and clogged ducts lead to your HVAC systems having to work much harder than required. This results in drawing more power which in turn, increases your monthly utility costs. If you’re noticing higher utility bills, you may need to give some attention to your air ducts.
