Why Clean Your Air Ducts

Friday, February 24, 2017


Try as you might, it’s nearly impossible to keep your home 100% clean. We’re not talking about keeping your floors mopped or your windows streak-free. We're talking about cleaning your air ducts -- which is probably not always high up on your spring cleaning checklist. However, every few years, it should be. There’s plenty of reasons to have your air ducts cleaned by professionals.


How Air Ducts Get Dirty

You might be curious as to how air ducts, which are hidden inside your walls & ceilings, get dirty in the first place. Well, over time, dust, bacteria, allergens, and other particles make their way into your air ducts and cause them to have a buildup of unhealthy debris. Different factors contribute to that buildup including pets, smoking, water contamination, HVAC damage, and home renovations.


The Problem with Dirty Air Ducts

Maybe the idea of some dust and dirt doesn’t really bother you. However, there are several negative effects of having that buildup. Think of it this way - your air ducts are like the circulatory system of your home. If they’re filled with gunk and dirt, the system, as a whole, won’t function properly.


Benefits of Cleaning Your Air Ducts

If you have dirty air ducts, you’re allowing your health and wallet to be negatively affected. Cleaning your air ducts improves the overall indoor air quality of your home. Removing the dust, dander, and chemicals that have collected inside your ducts provides better air for you and your family. Having a clean HVAC system also means your unit won’t have to work as hard to pump air throughout your home. In other words, your home will become energy efficient.
