With all the discussion about indoor air quality, you may wonder whether or not you should consider having your air ducts cleaned. Below are two instances in which you should definitely invest in a good duct cleaning.
Critters that invade your home, like rodents or insects, tend to hide in places you can’t reach. When they do so, they leave behind waste and health hazards. If you’ve had a pest problem, you would do well to get a duct cleaning. Keep in mind, though, that cleaning the ducts without eliminating the pests first will be pointless. Get rid of the pests first, and then let us clean up behind them.
Vents Aren’t Working Properly
If you believe (or can see) that your air ducts are clogged in some way or if debris and particle matter blow out of vents when the HVAC system is running, a good duct cleaning would be beneficial. It is rare for ducts to clog completely, but like in any other part of your home, dust builds up over time.
