How to Know You Need Duct Cleaning

March 22, 2019

Duct cleaning becomes even more important when it hasn’t happened for a while. When you have cleaner air ducts, your home will be cleaner as well. There’s plenty to do when it comes to keeping your home clean, but although you can complete these tasks, there are some areas that you won’t be able to clean on your own; these are the ducts that air uses to travel through your home, and outdoor contaminants can sneak inside your home without you even realizing it.

Rampant Mold Growth

Air Ducts Cleaning

Every HVAC unit needs to be cleaned out regularly. Without that preventative care, they will be less energy efficient, and you won’t see an improvement in your indoor air quality. However, another problem that you might not notice at first is when there is too much mold growing on your air ducts. Condensation buildup on air conditioners and furnaces alike can cause mold to start growing, but if you leave it alone and don’t do anything about it, then the mold will continue to multiply. HVAC technicians can point out the mold to you, but chances are, they might not be able to narrow down what type of mold it is. In these cases, you will need to call in indoor air quality specialists or duct cleaning experts that can address the problem for you without too much trouble.

Recent Renovations

If you are planning on renovating your home this spring, then there are some factors you will want to keep in mind. For one thing, there will still be plenty of dust left behind, even as careful as your contractors are. More dirt and dust will get into the HVAC system and ductwork if the system isn’t kept off during the process, and with changing temperatures through the day, you never know when you will need to adjust the conditions inside, or the unit could kick on by itself. Either way, you will need duct cleaning.

Excessive Dust

If you notice that there is far too much dust inside your home, then something could be wrong with your HVAC. This means that you will need duct cleaning even more urgently now than you did before. For this to make a difference, you will need to inspect the supply and return ducts found throughout your house. If the metal of the duct is choked with dust, then you will need to get it cleaned as soon as possible.
