Duct Cleaning and Repair

Like anything else in the home, air ducts get dirty. Air ducts are the pathways for heated and cooled air to travel throughout your home.

Along the way, natural contaminates build up preventing maximum air flow and more importantly filling your home with unclean air.

How Do I Know if I Need my Air Ducts Cleaned?

Let us explain.

Changing your air filters isn’t always enough to enjoy clean, pure air inside your home. Indoor air pollution is a topic of interest when it comes to air ducts. From dust build up, to rodent infestation, to living with pets, there are plenty of natural causes that can happen that cause your air ducts to be clogged with feces, dirt, and debris. This feces, debris, dust, or smoke then gets into your indoor air flow, worsening the effects of asthma, allergies, or breathing ease in general.

How Can I Help My Air Ducts Between Air Duct Cleaning?

There are so many ways to stay on top of the buildup in your air ducts.

Replace your air filters regularly.

Filters are what work as your first defense against duct, pet dander, loose hair, and dirt. An average home’s air duct filters should be changed every 90 days. Add a cat or dog, and that frequency changes to every 45 – 60 days.

Vacuum Regularly.

A lot of homeowners think that their air conditioning unit or HVAC system is a different entity from their indoor air quality. The truth is, they play hand in hand for the quality and cleanliness of your air. By cleaning the surfaces in your home from dirt, dust, and dander you are adding one line of defense against those pollutants getting into your lungs.

Don’t smoke indoors.

If you must, just know you will have to be even more proactive in cleaning your air ducts.
