Cleaning your air ducts regularly will improve the air quality in your home. Ducts contaminated with dust and pollen can be bothersome to those that suffer from allergies and asthma. If these come into contact with moisture, it’s likely there will be mold growth. Poor indoor air quality can also lead to migraine headaches and flu like symptoms.
Here are some ways to ensure high indoor air quality in your home:
- Change air filters regularly and make sure none are missing
- Vacuum your home and remove dust on a regular basis
- Make sure your air filters are secure so that no air is seeping through
- If you’re doing any home renovations, seal off any vents in the area or turn off the air until the project is complete
It’s important to prevent your ducts from becoming wet, so be sure to repair any leaks right away. Also, make sure any ducts in non-air-conditioned spaces, such as the attic or crawl space, are completely sealed.
Maintaining the quality of your home’s indoor air begins with maintaining the cleanliness of your air ducts. Routine cleaning will help your system to run more effectively and more efficiently. You will also find that by removing debris, your clean system is less likely to experience any issues.
Things like household pets, smokers in the household, recent home renovations, or previous damages to your system take a large toll on your air quality. Even if these pollutants aren’t visible, it’s important to keep your ducts in a row.
