The ductwork in your home is an essential part of your HVAC system. Properly maintained, ducts ferry clean air from your furnace or central air conditioner to the rest of your home. Like any fixture in your home, ducts can become dirty over time. In many cases, ductwork-cleaning can be an important part of restoring good indoor air quality.
Signs that Your Ducts Need Cleaning
- Dust and debris from ducts are coming out of your registers.
- Mold is growing in the ducts or on connected components.
- Mice or insects are nesting in your ducts.
Benefits of Cleaning Ducts
Mold, dust, and bacteria contribute to indoor air pollution. If your ducts have become filthy, it is likely that these pollutants are a part of your home’s air supply. Moldy ducts may contribute to allergies in anyone sensitive to mold. Likewise, dust and bacteria also cause health problems. Getting the ducts cleaned may relieve family members of some respiratory allergies.
