When Do You Know that It’s Time to Clean Your Air Ducts?

Many households today are concerned with the health of their family members. That’s why it’s not surprising that they would invest their money in the maintenance of their appliances. Even though your air vents don’t scream for attention, giving them regular cleaning is critical for your family’s health and the safety of your household.

It is not uncommon for people to ensure that all the plumbing is in order, gas stoves are in prime condition, and that the chimneys are cleaned on an annual basis. One step to ensuring your home’s cleanliness and health would be to conduct regular air duct cleaning.

Forgetting to clean the air ducts regularly increases your risk of a house fire and makes your air quality poor.

What is air duct cleaning and why is it important in the first place?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, an air duct cleaning is defined as an attempt to clean the indoor air you breathe in the office or in your homes. It involves the cleaning of a variety of heating and cooling systems including air diffusers, cooling coils, heat generators, fan systems as well.

Dust and debris build up and can also cause foul odors and more dust for you to clean. No one wants to spend more of their precious minutes dusting the house! Not only is dust a nuisance, it can become a serious threat to the integrity of your home. Dust and debris is a huge contributor to house fires.

In addition to improving the air quality in your home, you may also be ridding your ducts of pesky mites. Dust mites accumulate and can cause breathing difficulties. They are the number one cause of asthma and allergy triggers. You cannot ignore your venting system – the consequences are too high. This is particularly true if you have a family member that has a sensitive respiratory system.
