The air ducts within any property are vital components. Your ductwork helps filter and move quality air throughout your home, so you must take the time to perform regular maintenance and upkeep. However, because the ducts are out-of-sight or out-of-mind, many people neglect them until a problem arises. The changing seasons and spring weather all around us become the perfect time to think about having your air ducts professionally cleaned, especially for indoor air quality (IAQ).      

Why Does Regular Air Duct Cleaning Matter?

Regularly cleaning your air ducts is crucial for maintaining the optimal performance of your HVAC system. Instead of disregarding it for extended periods, it's better to proactively schedule seasonal cleaning with professionals to improve the IAQ of your home and ensure the efficient functioning of your system. 

It is recommended that your air ducts get cleaned every 3 to 5 years. However, there are some signs to look for that suggest early maintenance is required. The EPA suggests the following:

  • Look to see if your ductwork has visible mold patches or colonies. NOTE: Not all areas of your system will be visible to the naked eye, but professional duct cleaning technicians have the experience and technology to get a closer look.
  • If you notice any debris or thick dust developing within the ducts, it is time for a cleaning.
  • When your system is running, do you notice more dust in the air or settling on surfaces? This is a sign that you should have the ducts inspected. 
  • If you ever notice vermin like insects or rodents in your ductwork, contact professionals for cleaning and disinfection as soon as possible. 

Remember that the time of year you have your air ducts cleaned does not matter. If you take the time to monitor your ducts year-round, you will know to contact professionals to facilitate a thorough cleaning if you notice any issues that may arise. With a proper cleaning by trained technicians, you can benefit from the following:

  • Fresher, cleaner indoor air quality (IAQ)
  • Getting more out of the lifespan of your HVAC system
  • Cost-savings by avoiding damage
  • More efficiency when your system is in use

For many homeowners, it makes sense to have ducts cleaned during the spring. This season is about everything being fresh and new, with people often decluttering and having a detailed cleaning routine.
