One question that many homeowners may have, is just how they are supposed to realize that their air ducts require cleaning in the first place. After all, it is not as though one can simply visually inspect the interior surfaces of his or her air ducts. Fortunately for you, there are plenty of warning signs which may indicate the need for professional duct cleaning.
How to Tell if You Need Duct Cleaning Services
Reduced Indoor Air Quality: Have you noticed that the air quality in your home is on the decline? Are you starting to feel the effects of your allergy and asthma symptoms flaring up? If so, then you may benefit greatly from having your ductwork professionally cleaned. We can investigate the matter further, and if your ductwork seems to be the driving force behind your subpar indoor air quality, we can take care of the problem.
Decreased Efficiency: Does it seem as though you are paying more than usual in order to operate your forced air HVAC system? If so, dirty ductwork could certainly be playing a part in this. While it is very unlikely that you have a blockage severe enough to prevent air from being distributed throughout your ductwork, it is very possible that your air filters are clogging up quickly due to the pollutants in your air ducts. If you find that you need to change your filters much more frequently than suggested, dirty ductwork may be to blame.
Pest Infestations: Have you had unwelcome critters in your home recently? If so, then your primary concern was probably having that infiltration eliminated. However, you should also give some thought to what those creatures may have left behind. Following the removal of any infestation, it is wise to have your air ducts cleaned out to ensure that the departed did not leave unpleasant surprises behind.
