When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Your home’s ducts are the channel for all the air that you’re taking in. In fact, your ducts can be paralleled to the lungs of your home. Along with taking in and supplying air within your home, they are also capturing pollutants. Things like pet dander, pollen and dust all pass through your ducts and will make their way into the air you’re taking in. This is why pro duct cleaning is so important. So how do you know when you should have your ducts cleaned?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association suggests that you get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your circumstances. There are several factors the team at Durable Service takes into account when debating when to have your ducts cleaned based on the circumstances in Holdrege. Everyday life generates contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to take into account along with any recent home renovations. Also, looking at if anyone in your home is experiencing allergies or asthma is important, as pollutants in your indoor air can worsen these conditions. The air in your home’s system is typically recirculated 5–7 times a day, with that many more chances for pollutants to build up inside your duct work.

The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few propsals about when it’s time to arrange a duct cleaning: if you believe or know you have seen mold inside your ducts, if you’ve noticed a vermin infestation or see rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible confirmation of dust from your air register. The pros at Durable Service would be happy to talk you through all of these factors and help you through the process to see if you could gain anything from a duct cleaning.

Although the name infers it, a duct cleaning doesn’t just clean your ducts. A professional duct cleaning cleans every piece of your system that air passes through. A clean system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep pace with your thermostat. You’ll waste less energy and cause less erosion on your system.
