Have you asked yourself do I need to clean my air ducts regularly?

Most home owners know that cleaning and changing air filters are vital to your indoor air quality. Its a task that should be done on a regular basis. Another task that should be done on a regular maintenance schedule is cleaning your air ducts.

However, unlike air filters, duct cleaning should always be left to professionals.

Keep reading to find out if you need to clean your air ducts.

How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?

The National Air Duct Cleaning Association recommends having your ducts professionally cleaned at least once every three to five years.

Sometimes your air ducts will need to be cleaned more frequently if you suspect mold may be in the vents. Or if you’ve recently had a pest problem.

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating odors, dust and other contaminates.

3 Signs That You Need To Get Those Air Ducts Cleaned:

Mold Has Been Found In Your Furnace or AC

Mold found on your furnace, air conditioner, or air handler unit isn’t a guarantee that your ductwork has been affected. But, it certainly increases the chances.

Dust Keeps Appearing In Your Home Despite Cleaning

Do you ever notice that your house is still dusty even though you’ve just cleaned? You probably need to have your ducts cleaned.

Your Home Was Just Renovated or Just Built

Construction dust can make a mess all over your home and you don’t want your family to breathe those particles in. Don’t wait until you experience respiratory problems to have your air ducts cleaned.
