When should you have your ducts cleaned?

December 22, 2016

The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants move through your ducts and into the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so needed. How often should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Durable Service considers numerous factors, including climate conditions in Holdrege, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The well-being of your family will also be factored in. For example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming out of or built up on your air register. At Durable Service , our professionals will talk through these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will circulate more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
