What You Need to Know About Getting Your Furnace Ducts Cleaned

Living a comfortable life within your home often begins with the quality of air. The air running through the HVAC system keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also is recirculated, so as dust and dander begins to gather in the air, it may begin to collect within the vents of the house.

Does this mean you need to take advantage of furnace duct cleaning, or is the annual recommended cleaning little more than a fleece of your money? We have all the answers for you and what you need to know about getting your aid ducts cleaned in Surrey area. 

When You Really Need a Professional

  • There are some companies that might say you need an annual duct cleaning. This, realistically, isn’t true. While some dust may collect in the vents, it isn’t enough to do much of anything to your home’s air supply or reduce the quality of air in the house. The vast majority of dust is collected by the filters, so as long as you stay on top of the filters, you should be good to go. 
  • With that said, there are times you really do need a professional. For starters, if you recently had to remove mold from the house or suffered flooding. Mold spores can spread easily, so cleaning the mold out of your vents is important.
  • Secondly, if you’ve seen any kind of animal or have noticed animal droppings in and around the vents it is time to bring in the professionals. You should also take advantage of the service if you utilize lead paint remediation. Removing anything toxic from your house can result in some sports, fibers or debris kicking up into the air system. 

Annual Maintenance

Just because you may not need annual duct cleanings does not mean you don’t need an annual HVAC service. A professional that cleans ducts needs to perform the annual inspection on your system, including general repairs that can save you serious money. 

Clean air ducts removes mold spores, pet dander and other debris that may cause not only a reduction in your health, but it may lead to physical damage to the house (with the spread of mold).
