When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Before you breathe it in, all the air 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 in your home. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 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 Twin Air LLC takes into consideration several factors, including the weather in Manassas, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other things, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home 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 taken out of your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining 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 Twin Air LLC, 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.
