All of the air you breathe in your home 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 spread through your ducts and into the air in your home. 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 daily, pollutants have opportunities to build up inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should arrange to get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning considers numerous factors, including the weather in Arlington, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also bear in mind other things, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. For instance, 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 defining 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 Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning, our professionals will talk through 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 circulate more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
