Should You Have Your Ducts Cleaned?
Updated: May 25, 2019
We have been asked by homeowners if they should get their ducts cleaned. Maybe a previous heating and air conditioning contractor told them their ducts needed to be cleaned and offered the service. People see dust on their vents or registers and assume the dust comes from within the duct system. The dust that accumulates on your vents are almost always from dust within your room. We have not found a case where we feel that duct cleaning was necessary. In cases of mold or rodent infestation, it would be our recommendation to replace the duct work. Please read the following article from the EPA on duct cleaning.
