Each year, a typical home collects around 40 pounds of dust, allergens, and dirt in its ducts. As these containments build up, they are then spread around your home whenever you use your HVAC system.

It’s essential to have these ducts professionally cleaned, especially if anyone in your family suffers from respiratory disorders like asthma or allergies.

Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth It?

At WOW Total Cleaning, we want to offer the truth about air vent cleaning and the genuine reasons why residents might benefit from this process.

  1. Cleaner living space & Improved health

If your vents aren’t cleaned out regularly, contaminants such as allergens, bacteria, dust, pet dander, pet hair, mold spores, mildew, and Austin’s signature pollen can be emitted in your house and may cause various health issues, especially for people who have asthma.

  1. Save Money

Removal of debris and dust from the coils of your HVAC system considerably reduces energy consumption rate. This will help save a significant amount of money on your electricity bills, especially in the hot summers.

  1. Increase System Lifespan

When cleaned regularly, your HVAC system will require less maintenance. As a result, the system will last longer and need fewer repairs than it would have if excessively clogged by dust.

Can Mold Grow in Air Ducts?

While uncommon in clean air ducts, mold can grow in older or dirty air vents. The temperatures and dust present in duct systems present the right environment for mold to thrive.

When a good moisture supply is available, either via a condensation, a leak, or improper maintenance, mold growth is inevitable.

The only way to prevent mold growth is by having your HVAC systems and ducts cleaned regularly by a professional. Contact us and we will inspect your HVAC units, AC coils, vents, and other areas that might encourage mold growth.

Rest assured that, when we find any traces of mold in your system, we will perform remediation immediately to ensure you enjoy clean indoor air.

Signs You Need an Air Vent Cleaning Service

Although the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests that you should have your vents cleaned every 3-5 years, below are telltale signs that show it might be time to freshen them ahead of time:

  • Excessive debris and dust around the vent filter
  • Noticeable bursts of litter exiting supply registers
  • Thick dirt in ducts
  • Visible vermin and mold infestation
  • The duct system makes creaking or groaning noises when it runs
  • Presence of mold smell in the airflow from your vents

You may also need cleaning services more frequently if you:

  • Reside in an older home
  • Have allergies or reside with someone with allergies
  • Have someone with a respiratory condition in your office
  • Have pets
  • Have a smoker in the house
  • Have a problem with dust
