Clean Duct. Improve Airflow.
Like everything else in your home, your air ducts collect dust and debris over time. Dirty ducts not only cause respiratory health problems but can also serve as a breeding ground for dust mites, mold, bacteria and other fungi. This is why A/C and ventilation duct cleaning should be a regular maintenance in your home.
Common Pollutants in Your Air Ducts:
- Mold, mildew or other fungus
- Bacteria, virus
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Tobacco smoke
- Dust, soil, ash
How to Test for Dirty Ducts
If you don’t remember the last time you had your air ducts professionally cleaned, it’s probably time to get it done; however, there is an easy way to determine if you need duct cleaning or not.
1. Unscrew one of your vent/register plates.
2. Get a flash camera and stick it in the ductwork to get a snapshot.
3. If your photos reveal huge dust bunnies, dirt, and debris, it’s time to call a professional in.
You can do a little cleaning around your air duct with a wet rag, but you won’t be able to clean the vast expanses of your ductwork without professional equipment and expertise.
