The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants circulate through your ducts and into the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when you should call for an appointment?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times each day, pollutants have opportunities to build up inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should arrange to get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Woody's Sudden Service Inc takes into consideration several factors, including type of weather in Manassas, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also bear in mind other things, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be reduced in your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for determining when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you think you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming out of or built up on your air register. At Woody's Sudden Service Inc, our professionals will chat about these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.
A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will flow more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
