Cleaning home air ducts can provide peace of mind to homeowners because it is believed to make the air indoors healthier and safer to breathe.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, homeowners should plan on getting their ducts cleaned after their home has experienced fires, floods, infestations, or been exposed to hazardous waste. While it is otherwise not necessary to regularly have your air ducts cleaned, dirty air ducts may cause homeowners to become sick because bacteria and other microorganisms develop inside the air duct and can become airborne.
One tip for checking the quality of your air is to simply smell it. If something smells off, rank, fetid, or otherwise dirty, it’s usually best to have a professional at least check your air ducts.
Certain home cleaning companies say it is recommended to have your home air duct cleaned every five years if you have pets or 10 years if you do not have pets at home.
