when should i clean my airducts?

Keeping your home’s air ducts clean is important for good indoor air quality. Dirty ducts can restrict airflow, allow dust and allergen build-up, and permit mold growth if moisture gets in. Knowing when to schedule air duct cleaning helps ensure optimal health, efficiency, and air quality.


Signs It’s Time for Air Duct Cleaning

-Visible signs indicate when duct cleaning is needed:

-Dust/debris around vents – Shows deeper duct buildup

-Musty smell from vents – Could signify mold or mildew

-Pests near vents/ducts – Contaminants likely inside

-Poor airflow in rooms – Restricted airflow from dirty ducts

-Worsening allergy issues – Dirty ducts releasing dust/allergens

-Recent remodeling – Construction dust entered ducts

-Recommended Air Duct Cleaning Frequency

Most homes need duct cleaning every 3-5 years. More frequent cleaning may be needed with:

-Pets – Pet dander can quickly accumulate, needing cleaning every 2-3 years

-Renovations – Even small projects can kick up dust into the HVAC system

-Pollution – Yearly cleanings in heavily polluted areas

-Mold/pests – Clean ducts more than once a year until eliminated

-Smokers – Smoke residues coat ducts, needing yearly cleanings

While you can inspect ducts yourself, professional cleaning is required for thorough sanitization.
