Many home owners, new home buyers, renters, and others are wondering how often air ducts are cleaned. There are a lot of misconceptions about this topic, so it’s important to know what to look for and how to identify dirty air ducts.
- Dust builds up over time, gets stuck in vent covers and duct openings
- Mold can grow in main AC boxes, air ducts, or in vents around your home
- Dirty air ducts may experience airflow issues
- The smell of the air can become musty or otherwise not fresh
- Humidity and frequent air conditioning use will increase the need for cleaning
Air duct cleaning is not needed in full each year, but routine duct cleaning services are definitely the best way to prevent problems with your HVAC. Home air duct cleaning by a professional company is the best way to make sure you do not have mold problems, or bad buildups of dust, allergens, and other contaminants. It is recommended that you clean air ducts at least every 1-2 years, or as needed for bad ventilation problems.

You must make sure the house is in great condition, but it’s possible the past house owners or renters did not clean the air ducts. A professional HVAC company can easily find out what the condition is like and complete all air duct cleaning.
