Your typical cleaning routine probably involves vacuuming, dusting, and emptying the trash. But chances are you don’t clean your air ducts on a regular basis. And yet the air you and your family breathe comes through those very ducts. It is worth considering whether you should have your air ducts cleaned.
Over time, debris and dust will build up in your ducts. This buildup causes your HVAC system to be less efficient and this inefficiency leads to a more costly energy bill. Not only that but a system with dirt and debris buildup is unlikely to last as long as a well-maintained unit. Investing in air duct cleaning could save you money and help keep you healthy in the long run.
Reasons to Clean your Air Duct
According to the EPA, you should have your air ducts cleaned if:
- There is substantial visible mold on the hard surface of ducts or any other part of your heating and cooling system.
- The ducts have been infested with vermin.
- Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of debris or particles that are being released into your home.

Duct cleaning is a comprehensive process. A professional cleaning crew will clean the various components of your heating and cooling system, anywhere there is forced air. The entire system must be cleaned to prevent future contamination.
