Should You Have The Air Ducts In Your Home Cleaned?

March 20, 2015

The air ducts are a part of the air conditioner that is responsible for carrying air to different areas in the home. Every home is different, so it is hard to make general duct cleaning recommendations. However, there are a number of signs that suggest you should get your air ducts cleaned. Below are some of the reasons you should have your air ducts cleaned:


If you or one of your family members have been experiencing allergies, you should consider getting your air ducts cleaned. In many cases, allergies can be worsened or triggered by poor indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can also worsen other respiratory illnesses. Having your air ducts cleaned can help improve indoor air quality, which is why many people notice a relief in their allergy symptoms when they have their air ducts cleaned.

Your Ducts Are Dirty

Air ducts have a tendency to get dirty over time. That is why they need to be inspected on a regular basis in order to see whether they are accumulating dirt. They will need to be cleaned by a professional if there is an excessive amount of dirt around them. Dust and other particles can be released into the air if the air ducts are clogged. This can affect your indoor air quality.

Mold Is Growing On Your Air Ducts

If you notice mold growing around your air ducts, you should definitely consider having them cleaned. Mold exposure can also cause health problems. Mold exposure can lead to wheezing, watery eyes, itchy eyes, running nose and redness of the eyes. Mold has a tendency to thrive in areas that are moist. That is why air ducts are prone to developing mold.

Regular air duct cleaning is important because it prevents mold and dirt from accumulating around your air ducts. However, it is important for you to have your air ducts cleaned by a professional.
