Before you breathe it in, all the air in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and distribute 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 necessary. How often is normal to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to build up 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 Air Service Co. takes into consideration numerous factors, including the weather in Muldrow, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also consider other factors, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. For example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming through or built up on your air register. At Air Service Co., 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.
