When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 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 the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when you should call for an appointment? With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Comfort Zone Inc considers several factors, including type of weather in Cape Coral, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be reduced in your indoor air. The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might 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 Comfort Zone Inc, 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 move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
