Symptoms of Dirty Heating Ducts

The first thing to consider is when to clean your heating ducts. You will start by noticing that your furniture is starting to collect more dust than usual. Your family members are starting to catch colds more frequently and display other symptoms of respiratory illness. You might see visible mold growth in the duct. Over time, rodent and insects can gather inside. The duct can become clogged with large amounts of dust and debris that can spread into your household.

Getting your air ducts cleaned can be great, but there is also a process that you should follow to make sure everything goes correctly. You need to make sure the carpets and all household furniture during the cleaning process are covered to prevent dust accumulation. Soft- bristled brushes should be used to avoid damaging the vents.

Ways to Prevent Cleaning Your Air Ducts Frequently

Cleaning your heating ducts can be costly at times. Luckily, there are procedures you can follow to avoid having to get your heating ducts cleaned all of the time. You can use a high efficiency air filter provided by your heating and cooling manufacturer. Also, remembering to change your filters regularly will keep them cleaner. If your filters become clogged easily, change them more frequently. It is also important to be sure that you do not have any missing filters, so that the air cannot pass through the gaps around the filter. By keeping up to date with all of these procedures, you won’t constantly rely on costly professionals to come and clean your ducts.

Examining the Aftermath of the Cleaning
