When should you have your ducts cleaned?12/22/2016 Before you breathe it in, all the air in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and distribute air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants spread 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 is normal to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it? With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to build up 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 1st Choice Service Group Inc takes into consideration numerous factors, including type of weather in Asheville, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also bear in mind other things, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For example, 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 might 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 1st Choice Service Group Inc, 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 circulate more smoothly and freely throughout your home.
