3 Frequently Asked Questions About Duct Cleaning
When Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends professional air duct cleaning once every three to five years. How often you have your ducts cleaned can depend on many factors. For example, if you have smokers or pets in your household, or if anyone who lives in your home has allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions, then your ducts may need to be cleaned more frequently. Likewise, it is always a good idea to get your ducts cleaned following any type of water contamination or home renovations, and before you move into a new home.
How Long Does It Take?
A good, thorough cleaning should take a couple of hours. This time may increase depending on the size of your home and the complexity and the condition of the ductwork. Beware of the companies that claim quality work at a low cost, or those who commit to being in and out of your home in under an hour. When it comes to professional duct cleaning services, you often get what you pay for.
Is It Really Worth It?
Yes! The HVAC ducts in your home can harbor dust, dirt, pet dander, and other debris that can aggravate indoor allergies. That dust and debris can contain dust mites, mold, mildew, pollen, and even animal droppings. Each time your HVAC system runs, these contaminants are being pumped into the air you breathe. Aside from improving the air quality in your home, duct cleaning services can allow your system to function more efficiently, resulting in less wear and tear on your HVAC system and cost savings on your energy bill.
