Should you have the air ducts in your home cleaned? The short answer is it depends. Duct cleaning can provide many benefits. However it is important to consider other more harmful factors in the home. For example, activities such as cooking and cleaning are more likely to expose you to contaminants than uncleaned ducts. That being said, consider a few reasons as to why you may need to have a duct cleaning service.
Firstly, you may want to consider how old your air duct is. Is it covered and clogged with debris? If you notice any of this debris actually coming into the home, then they need to be cleaned. If someone in the home has worsened allergy symptoms, this could be a sign. Another reason is if you know that there are rodents or vermin present in the duct system. Lastly, if there is mold growth on your ducts, then you should call for an inspection. Ultimately the source of the growth should be stopped and then your ducts can be cleaned. If your air ducts are insulated, then you will require a replacement service.
