How Often Do You Need Your Air Ducts Cleaned?

When was the last time you looked inside in your air ducts? Maybe the better question is when was the last time you even thought about your air ducts?

You have a lot of things to take care of around the house. So maybe you air ducts get ignored. But what you don’t see can hurt you.

Your air ducts are like the veins of your house. All that cold and warm air that you never think about until there’s problem doesn’t appear by magic. The air in your home passes from room to keep your warm or cool.

But it has to travel through your air ducts first. So what happens when your air ducts get dirty and clogged?

Just like a clog in your veins slows your blood, a clog in your air ducts means your air slows down. And that air isn’t clean either. All of the air moving through your ducts carries parts of that clog with it.

That means your air is dirty and it’s not flowing like it should. So how do you fix it? You get your air ducts cleanedby the top air duct cleaning company in Portland-Vancouver: Better Air Northwest.

Most people in Portland, Beaverton and Vancouver never even think about their air ducts, until something bad happens. That’s why it’s a smart idea to put your air duct cleaning on yearly schedule. That will help you avoid running into any problems in the first place.

There are numerous things to consider when deciding how often you should get your air ducts cleaned. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • How often do you use your ducts?
  • How much carpet do you have in your home?
  • Do people in your home have allergies?
  • Are there any pets in your home?
  • Do you live in a rural or urban area?
  • How often do you have a fire going?
