4 Signs You Need to Schedule Air Duct Cleaning Today

Posted by Lisa Pixley

You may not be able to see inside of your air ducts, but there are plenty of ways to tell if your ducts are full of dust, allergens or even mold and mildew. Call a professional duct cleaning company every few years to clean out your ducts or whenever you notice these signs, and you may experience better air quality and even better energy efficiency from your heating and air conditioning systems.

  • Smells from the ducts: The smell of mildew when you run your air conditioning or heating systems is a sure sign of a problem, and you must have a technician address this ASAP to keep mold from spreading. A mold remediation expert can clean the mold out of the ducts and can also make recommendations on how to prevent mold from popping up in your ducts again anytime soon.
  • Asthma and allergy symptoms: When people in the home seem to be sneezing or coughing excessively, cleaning out your ducts may solve the problem to an extent, especially if it’s been several years.
  • Dust comes from the vents: If you turn on your heating system and you can see a trail of dust exiting your vents, chances are that there is much more dust layered within your ductwork.
  • You haven’t had your ducts cleaned in a long time: We typically recommend that homeowners call professional duct cleaners every 3-5 years—especially those with large households or family members with severe allergy or asthma troubles. Some businesses benefit from scheduling duct cleaning once every year. If you cannot remember when you last called in a professional duct cleaner, it’s a good sign to call today. Air conditioning and heating systems can run more smoothly when there is less dust and debris blocking the ducts, and your family members may notice a difference in the air quality.
