The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants circulate through your ducts and into your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so needed. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it?
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 make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Dearing's Service & Solutions contemplates a number of factors, including the weather in Huntingburg, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also consider other variables, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The well-being of your family will also be factored in. For example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s extra important for pollutants to be reduced in 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 from or built up on your air register. At Dearing's Service & Solutions, 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 flow more smoothly and freely throughout your home.
