Air duct cleaning is a popular service that came about in response to an increase of air pollution. 

So, what is air duct cleaning? 

It is the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components. These components can include supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers. 

Why is air duct cleaning important?

The air ducts help cold and warm air travel throughout your home. When the system components are not maintained than dust, pollen, and other debris build-ups. Air ducts can also collect moisture, which in turn can cause mold. 

If you have those who have allergies in the home, it can cause their allergies to be worse. 

What are the benefits of air duct cleaning?

Air duct cleaning has three basic benefits. 

The first, and sometimes the most important, is improving your home’s air quality. 

The second benefit is clean air ducts help you save money because your heating & cooling system is not working as hard, and is more energy-efficient.

The last reason air duct cleaning is important is that it will help your HVAC system run longer. HVAC systems that are not properly maintained end up having more expensive issues, like HVAC system replacement.

When should you call to have your air ducts maintenance performed? 

The most urgent time to have your air ducts cleaned is if you visibly see mold growing inside the ductwork. The problem with only doing it when you see mold is that you can not see the entire ductwork system. 

Another time to get your ducts cleaned is if rodents decide to make your air ducts their maze. 

Although, the best way to maintain your HVAC system is to have your air ducts cleaned every three to five years.
