When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

All of the air you breathe in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and push air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants move through your ducts and into the air in your home. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so needed. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when you should call for an appointment?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Garoken Energy Co. Inc. considers several factors, including type of weather in Beaverton, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also weigh other variables, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you suspect you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At Garoken Energy Co. Inc., our professionals will talk through these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will flow more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
