Why You Should Remember to Clean Your Ductwork

It isn’t quite spring cleaning season yet–but there are times when cleaning just can’t wait! From sweeping or vacuuming up pine needles from the tree to wiping dust off the shelves, now is as good a time as ever to get a few items on your cleaning checklist checked off. Don’t forget your ductwork during all of this!

Your ducts can play a huge role in keeping your home’s air clean. This is because, if there is debris in your ductwork, it will end up blowing into your home when you use your HVAC system. This is why we suggest duct cleaning in Miami, FL as a regular part of your cleaning checklist just like dusting the shelves.

What Is In My Ductwork

All too often, people don’t realize that their ductwork can be a key area for collecting everything that they have been trying to clean out of their home throughout the year. Whatever gets into the air in your home is going to be in your ductwork after a certain period of time. This can include:

  • Dust
  • Dirt
  • Pollen
  • Fur (if you have pets)
  • Hair
  • Bugs
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Mold spores

As you can see, there are plenty of particulates that can end up collecting in your ducts. And, as you may have guessed, those particles can be blown back into your home where they cause all kinds of trouble.

What Can Dirty Ductwork Do?

Now you might be wondering how much harm dirty ductwork can really do. “Dirt don’t hurt,” right? Well, while it is impossible to avoid all dirt, it doesn’t mean that building a pile in your ductwork is going to be good in any way. Dirty ducts can cause problems ranging from reduced indoor air quality and increased allergies to hindered HVAC system operation (all that dirt can end up clogging your filters).

How to Tackle Dirty Ducts

If you’ve already grabbed a microfiber cloth and a vacuum we’d like to ask you to hang on for a second. While we admire your dedication, cleaning your ductwork isn’t a simple task. Your ducts are actually quite delicate and can be easily damaged by anyone who doesn’t have the proper tools or training. That’s why we want you to know that we are here to help.

All that means is that you need to reach out to a professional on our team to schedule an appointment and we will take it from there. Our technicians have the right tools and experience to get any built-up debris removed from your ductwork without allowing it to spread all over your home.
