When should you have your ducts cleaned?

The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and push air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants spread through your ducts and into your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often is normal to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when you should call for an appointment?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to build up inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should arrange to get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Cool Air Solutions contemplates numerous factors, including the weather in Murrieta, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also bear in mind other variables, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. For example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be reduced in your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At Cool Air Solutions, our professionals will discuss these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
