All of the air you breathe 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 move 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 you should call for an appointment?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 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 Bon Air Service Company contemplates several factors, including climate conditions in Grand Prairie, 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 factors, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The well-being of your family will also be factored in. Take 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 establishing 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 from or built up on your air register. At Bon Air Service Company, our professionals will chat about 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 move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
