Indoor air pollution is a problem that many homeowners must deal with. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to ensure your home is kept as pollutant-free as possible. Changing the filters in your HVAC system and keeping it well-maintained will help keep your indoor air clean, as well as duct cleaning by a professional.

When to Consider Duct Cleaning

  • If there is mold growing in your air ducts or other parts of your HVAC system. If you look at your vents and it appears that mold is present, call in an expert to have it tested, as some substances may look like mold but are not. If mold has developed on insulated air ducts, you may have to have them replaced. Also, be sure to have the rest of your HVAC system checked by a professional to ensure mold has not spread to any other components. Once the mold has been removed, it is essential to eliminate the cause to avoid a recurrence.
  • If your vents are emitting dust and other debris into your home. When this happens, check that it is not the result of a dusty return register. Remove the register, vacuum up any dust or debris and replace it. If your vents are still blowing debris into your home, you most likely need to have the ducts cleaned.
