Ductwork Cleaning Importance for your Home

When you are in your home, you will want it to have the best air quality possible. Ductwork cleaning is important for a variety of reasons. Duct cleaning services use specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home. Duct cleaning should also involve a thorough cleaning of the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings, and coils of the HVAC system. Ducts in your home may be dirty and need cleaning after remodeling. By making sure to clean them, you are removing the dirt and dust that was created when the remodeling was done in your home. If your home has been remodeled, especially if there was asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, or significant dust, your ductwork may need to be cleaned. Ducts should be sealed off during home renovations; but if they weren’t, dangerous dust and debris may become lodged inside the ductwork.

If there is evidence of animal infestation or nesting in your ducts or HVAC system, have the animals removed then clean the ductwork and HVAC unit. You should also have the ductwork cleaned if you have pets in the home. This is because the dirt, hair, and dander can get into the ductwork. If there is visible mold growth inside the ductwork, the ducts and HVAC system should also be cleaned. If noticeable debris, pet hair, odors, or other contaminants are being released into the room through the ducts after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed; then the ducts may need to be cleaned. Also remember if someone in your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness, and you have taken every other possible step to decontaminate your home, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit.


If you notice an issue with your HVAC system or ductwork, make sure to contact us as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you. By noticing an issue at the first sign, you can help to save time, money, and stress in the long run.
