When should you have your ducts cleaned?

December 10, 2020

All of the air you breathe in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and push air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants move through your ducts and into the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. How often should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at JTech Mechanical considers several factors, including climate conditions in Magnolia, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also consider other factors, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be removed from 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 from or built up on your air register. At JTech Mechanical, our professionals will discuss 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 smoothly and freely throughout your home.
