When Should Your Air Ducts Be Cleaned?
Our Customers are always amazed at the amount of dirt, dust, and debris that has accumulated within their system and marveled by the before and after pictures we take of your system. The amount of dirt removed at each home makes our customers delighted to have called us to clean and inspect their HVAC system. A clean system will improve the quality of air produced by the system enabling it to work more effectively, hence prolonging the life of the unit.
The HVAC system is vital for the health and cleanliness of your home. Many systems have not been cleaned or inspected in many years and have a significant amounts of dust and dirt within them. This dust will usually grow some form of bacteria and mold. Dust mites will also call your dusty system home. If this dust becomes moist, a dust mold can grow inside your system and seriously affect your health. The US Environmental Protection Agency recommends a deep cleaning every 5 years on average.
Ducts should be cleaned when there is a visible amount of dirt or dust that has accumulated.
For older homes we recommends a deep cleaning every 5-8 years and a maintenance cleaning with sanitization annually or bi-annually depending on accumulation and allergies of the residents.
For new construction we recommend a deep cleaning within the first 2 years of moving into the property. When a home is being built the system will be running periodically during the construction. This will cause the system to become very dirty from the dust and chemicals that are kicked up and used during construction. Cleaning the system enables the system to work efficiently and expeditiously.
