Ventilation systems can harbor germs and lead to poor indoor air quality. Your air duct system could be circulating dust, pollen, unpleasant odors, debris, and other contaminants. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. Is it time for you?
Visual clues, like signs of mold and excessive dust around the air vents, can point to a need for cleaning.
Special Situation– Mold
If there is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system, you must get professional help to clean all the components in the system. Many sections of your heating and cooling system may not be accessible for a visible inspection, so ask the service provider to show you any mold they say exists. If the insulation got wet and cannot be effectively cleaned, it should be removed and replaced.
Additional factors that might require your ducts and HVAC system to be cleaned are :
Take The Time
Usually, a service provider will use specialized tools to dislodge dirt and other debris in ducts, then vacuum them out with a high-powered vacuum cleaner. Typically, a 2,000-square-foot home will take about 3 to 5 hours. In fact, a rushed, an inadequate job can do more harm than good. According to the EPA, an inadequate vacuum collection system can release more dust, dirt, and other contaminants than if you had left the ducts alone.
