When Is the Best Time for Air Duct Cleaning?

This is one of the most common questions we hear at Better Air Northwest. The truth is there really isn’t one best time to get your air ducts cleaned. The answer will depend on several factors and your own personal circumstances. The reality is, if your air ducts are dirty, then there really isn’t a bad time to get them cleaned.

So lets’ talk about some specific circumstances in which you should consider getting your ductwork cleaned. Over time, your air ducts can really get messy. Dust, dirt, pet dander, hair, construction debris, and even mildew and mold can build up in your ductwork.

If you think you have any of those things lurking in your ductwork, then that is a good time to clean them. Most experts recommend getting your air ducts cleaned every two to five years. However, if you have pets in the home, live in an overly dusty area, or you suffer from allergies, then getting them cleaned more often could be helpful.

If you’ve had any recent construction or remodeling done at your home or workplace, then that is also a good time to get your air ducts cleaned. And if you’ve recently moved into a different home, you might also want to consider getting your ducts cleaned. That’s because chances are you don’t know the last time the previous owner had them cleaned.
