Is It Time to Clean Your Air Ducts?

When you see dust or dirt stuck to your air vents, it can be easy to simply clean the vents with soap and water and think you have taken care of the problem.  But air ducts can be a lot more complicated than just cleaning the visible debris off the vents.  Because of the complexity of HVAC systems and ductwork, cleaning of air ducts is better left to professionals.  If you notice dirt on your vents, it’s time to consider air duct cleaning from the professionals at Comfort Experts.Receptionist

Regular Maintenance

According to the National Air Duct Cleaning Association, the recommended amount of time to clean air ducts is every three to five years.  Some contractors recommend having it done more often if the need arises.

Pet Owners

Pet owners might need to consider having ducts cleaned more regularly.  Hair and dirt from pets will cause dust and dirt to accumulate more quickly in vents than normal.  While you love your furry pets, they could be affecting your air quality.  Thankfully, air duct cleaning by professionals at Comfort Experts can take care of that annoying build-up so you can breathe fresh, clean air.

Health Concerns

If you have health concerns such as allergies or asthma, it can be beneficial for your health to consider regular air duct cleanings.  Breathing in allergens that flow throughout the home from dust and debris in the ductwork will only worsen symptoms of asthma or allergies.  It is also important to change the air filter regularly to make sure clean air flows through the home.

Renovations, Moving and the Military

Home renovations or moving to a new house may mean it’s time to consider professional ductwork cleaning.  All the dust and debris from construction has to go somewhere, right into your air duct vents.  Moreover, when you move to a new home, you have no idea what the previous tenants did to clean out ductwork.  Military families and veterans especially move frequently and can benefit from ductwork cleaning.  Comfort Experts is pleased to offer veterans a discount on HVAC services.

Pest Infestations

Pests like mice or rats that get inside the home carry microorganisms that can lead to the spread of unwanted diseases.  Dander, dropping, and the bacteria from pests can be a serious health concern. Avoid breathing in what pests bring into your home by first ridding your home of pest infestations and then calling an HVAC professional to clean your ductwork.
