Has it been a while since the air ventilation system in your home got a thorough check-up?
Considered the home’s lungs, the air ducts pump either hot or cold air into each room of the house. That’s why having a clean ventilation system ensures each family member is breathing the best indoor air possible.
Read on to learn the 3 sure-fire signs that it’s time to schedule a complete air duct system cleaning.
1. You Notice More Dust Around the House
Take a peek at the air vent grates around your home. When the AC kicks in, do you see whispers of dust flying out of the vents? Do the grill slats have a collection of dust bunnies?
Perhaps dust is accumulating on top of the countertops and tables beneath the vents faster than normal. Also, are you replacing the air filter more often than usual because the filter is trapping loads of dust and other airborne gunk?
These are all signs you need your AC ducts cleaned. All air conditioning systems require a maintenance schedule to keep the system running at its best.
Due to its small particles, dust buildup is one of the hardest air duct problems to notice. But when you do see it, it is a red flag to schedule an air duct cleaning with a professional.
2. You See Mold and Mildew
It’s common for a home’s heating and air conditioning system to have condensation. When there is a sharp temperature difference between the inside and outside air, moisture gets trapped in the AC ducts.
And where there is moisture, there’s a greater chance of mold and mildew.
If you smell a musty odor coming from the air vents, mold is probably growing somewhere inside the vast ductwork throughout the house.
Take a peek inside your air duct vents. If you see splotches of black, brown, or green growth, it may be mold. And every time the air kicks in, it spreads those mold spores into each room of the house.
Be sure to make duct cleaning a priority at the first sign of mold.
3. Allergy Symptoms Are Worse
One of the sure-fire signs you need your air ducts cleaned is if the allergy sufferers in your house can’t breathe.
Many people are allergic to dust mites, and a high concentration of unclean air can trigger a sinus flare-up.
If family members are complaining about sinus pressure or are having a hard time breathing easily, they are likely inhaling more dust than normal.
