Understanding that indoor air quality can affect your overall health, many homeowners have made it a priority to remove the air pollutants (dust, dirt, mold, etc.) inside their home to create a healthier environment. One of the best ways to get improved indoor air quality is to have your air ducts professionally cleaned.
When was the last time that you had your ductwork cleaned? If the answer is never, this is a service that you should seriously consider. Many homeowners are not sure whether they need to have their air ducts cleaned or not, so here are three scenarios where this service is absolutely needed:
- If you can see any mold growth within your air ducts, a cleaning is necessary in order to help you and your family stay healthy. Often, if mold growth is visible through the registers or grilles in your home, the problem is much more serious as you get further into the ductwork.
- When rodents or insects infest your air ducts, a cleaning is necessary to most effectively resolve the problem.
- If you notice an excessive buildup of dust and dirt in your ductwork, you are at increased risk for having this debris be released into your home. A thorough cleaning of your air ducts may be necessary.
It’s only logical that over time your air ducts will acquire a buildup of dust and dirt, and this is especially true if you have pets or have completed a home renovation. To keep your HVAC system running efficiently and provide your family with the best indoor air quality, having your ducts cleaned is a great way to accomplish this.
