Every residential home in Ohio needs a duct cleaning about every three to five years. Constant HVAC use during the year increases debris buildup in your ducts, lowering your overall comfort and indoor air quality. Learning more about duct cleanings can help you identify when your home needs one.

Signs of Dirty Ducts

A dirty ductwork system can exhibit a range of symptoms from mold outbreaks to pest infestations. Keep an eye out for animal droppings or odd sounds in the ducts that may indicate pests. Any serious mold outbreaks in the home should immediately be followed up with a duct cleaning. Mold spores and dust mites travel easily in dirty, humid environments.

It’s likely time for a duct cleaning if your HVAC filters are filling up quickly. Too much dust in the air makes it harder for your heating and cooling systems to function efficiently.

Ductwork Cleaning Benefits

Scheduling routine duct cleaning services will make it easier for you to maintain your air quality. Dust, dander and allergens won’t be able to build up in your ducts and negatively impact your health. This regular service also protects your HVAC system from increased wear and tear. Your heating and cooling systems won’t have to struggle with restricted airflow or pesky contaminants settling between their components.

A professional technician has the heavy equipment and training needed to thoroughly clean your ducts. It’s never a good idea to buy your own duct cleaning tools that may damage the non-metal parts of your ductwork.
