Air duct cleaning is essential in maintaining and improving the indoor air quality in your home. Failure to perform this task on a regular basis can cause allergens, dust and other debris to continuously circulate in your home. Furthermore, this may lead to respiratory problems among your family members.
How Often Should Your Ducts Be Cleaned
Experts generally recommend cleaning your ducts every three to five years. However, there are certain conditions that may require you to perform duct cleaning more frequently. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should clean your ducts more often if you:
- Have pets at home
- Live with someone suffering from a respiratory illness
- Have allergies or live with someone suffering from allergies
- Live with a smoker
- Live in an older home
