When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

Your home’s ducts are the trail for all the air that you’re inhaling. In fact, your ducts can be paralleled to the lungs of your home. Along with taking in and circulating air within your home, they are also capturing pollutants. Things like pet dander, pollen and dust all pass through your ducts and will travel into the air you’re taking in. This is why professional duct cleaning is so important. So how do you know when you should have your ducts cleaned?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association suggests that you get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your circumstances. There are many factors the team at Premium Air Services LLC contemplates when thinking about when to have your ducts cleaned based on the conditions in Tomball. Everyday life generates contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to consider along with any current home renovations. Also, looking at if anyone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma is important, as pollutants in your indoor air can intensify these conditions. The air in your home’s system is normally recirculated 5–7 times a day, with that many more opportunities for pollutants to accumulate inside your duct work.

The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few propsals about when it’s time to schedule a duct cleaning: if you suspect or know you have noticed mold inside your ducts, if you’ve seen a vermin infestation or see rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible proof of dust from your air register. The professionals at Premium Air Services LLC would be happy to talk you through all of these things and support you through the process to see if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

Although the name implies it, a duct cleaning doesn’t just clean your ducts. A qualified duct cleaning cleans every piece of your system that air passes over. A clean system doesn’t have to operate as hard to keep working with your thermostat. You’ll use less energy and cause less deterioration on your system.

If anyone in your home is suffering from the allergies floating around in Tomball or you’ve detected any of the forewarning signs in your duct work, it’s time to start contemplating duct cleaning.
