How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?

Cleaning the air ducts in your home is an important task to consider when factoring in you and your families overall health. Containments in the air, dust and debris particles and host of other risks could be present in your home that you’re not even aware of.

Cleaning the vents and air ducts lessen those risks by removing particles. You could attempt to do this yourself, and there are DIY videos all over the Internet, but there are also risks.

It’s best to call in professionals for an air duct cleaning in your home if you want to rest assured that any trapped debris is located and removed and that your family is breathing the cleanest indoor air possible.

You should aim to have your air ducts cleaned at least every few years. The National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association recommends every 3-5 years. This, of course, can change and require more frequent cleanings if you’re doing renovations, painting, have pets or are even smoking in the home.

If you’re not sure when the last time you had your air ducts cleaned was, or if you’ve never hired a professional to help with the task, you can easily take a look at the vent returns around your home. If there is dark, black color dust on them, chances are the air circulating through your system isn’t very clean.
