Air duct cleaning is one of the most important maintenance tasks for a forced-air heating and cooling system. Ducts distribute air throughout a home. Over time, ducts accumulate dust, dirt and other contaminants that are then circulated through your home each time your unit comes on. Regular duct cleaning helps maintain the efficiency of your system and can prolong the life of the unit.
Why You Need Air Duct Cleaning
After seasons of use, HVAC units may not work up to capacity or may even fail. Often, air is not distributed equally in a building because of leaking or clogged air ducts. Air duct cleaning ensures that air circulates freely and reaches all the rooms. Moisture and particles like lint, dust and animal hair build up in ducts, providing a breeding ground for mold, bacteria and dust mites.
Dirty air ducts make a unit work harder. Regular duct cleaning removes built-up deposits and prevents airborne pollutants from circulating throughout the system. Air duct cleaning reduces energy usage and improves indoor air quality.

Fixing leaks prevents dust from entering the system, while duct cleaning removes grime and moisture. Regular air duct cleaning ensures that forced air is able to flow freely through the HVAC system.
