This is a great question–it’s one of those maintenance things that can easily get overlooked, like cleaning out dryer vents. Because you don’t see the inside of your ductwork on a regular basis, thinking to clean it is random. Or you may not think it’s necessary to clean your ductwork because things seem to be running fine, so…?
The thing with ductwork is that it impacts the air quality in your home or office. It’s the stuff you can’t see that you’re breathing. If you have pets, kids, dampness, general house traffic…these can create build up over time of tiny particles, sticky things, mold, pet dander, hair, mud, etc. It’s small, so you don’t see it until you open up the ductwork to see what’s collected over time.
Believe me, you may NOT want to see what’s collected over time! You wouldn’t want to see what we see. 🙂
So it’s great to clean your ductwork ever so often to improve the quality of the air in your home, and also to reduce allergies, colds, sniffling noses. If you or your family seems to be cycling with repeated allergy flare-ups or congestion, this could be the source. Cleaning your ductwork could drastically improve that.
