When should you have your ducts cleaned?

All of the air you breathe in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and push air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants spread through your ducts and into your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 5–7 times each day, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Mr. Air Repair takes into consideration a number of factors, including type of weather in Shelby Township , to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also bear in mind other variables, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s extra important for pollutants to be removed from your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you suspect you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming out of or built up on your air register. At Mr. Air Repair , our professionals will chat about these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will circulate more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
