Many people all over the northwest, including right here in the Vancouver and Portland area, have already discovered the benefits of getting their air ducts cleaned. You can breathe cleaner air, save money on your electric bill and have a cleaner, dust-freer home. However, many people wonder how often they should get their air ducts cleaned. Some even wonder f they should get their ducts cleaned once a year.
In most cases, it’s not necessary to have your duct cleaned every year. For those who live in extremely dusty or dirt conditions then getting your ducts cleaned more often is a good idea, but for most people having your ducts cleaned every three to five years is usually sufficient. On the other hand, if you have done some reconstruction or remolding then your ducts might need an additional cleaning, as the dust tends to build up quicker.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency you should get your air ducts cleaned no matter how long its been if you suspect mold in your ducts, or if you’ve noticed any rodents in your home, including your ducts. Likewise, if you see dust noticeably coming from your vents, then it’s time to get your air ducts cleaned.
