If you’re reading this then you’re probably wondering whether or not you really need to get your air ducts cleaned. Maybe you’ve just moved into an older home, or even a brand new one, and you want to know how clean, or dirty, your air ducts might really be. The good thing is there are several obvious signs that your air ducts need to be cleaned.
If you have just moved into a new home, you might think your ducts are very clean, but in reality they are likely dirty. That’s because construction crews leave a lot of dust, dirt and other debris behind when building your home. Much of that ends up in your ductwork. Therefore, that is a good sign you need your ducts cleaned.
Another typical sign is having a lot of dust buildup in your home, even when you clean it regularly. If you smell something foul coming from your ductwork, that’s a good sign you have buildup, including mold and/or mildew, or even a dead animal. If someone in your home suffers from allergies and their symptoms are getting increasingly worse, you might need to get your ducts cleaned.
All of these are tale-tell signs that your ductwork is in need of some cleaning. Fortunately, for cleaner air ducts in the Portland, Vancouver and Beaverton areas you have Better Air Northwest.
