What’s that funny smell coming from my air ducts? Maybe that sounds like a silly question, but the fact is, your air ducts aren’t always the cleanest place and they can give off some pretty bad smells. So what’s causing those bad smells?
If you smell something that reminds you of stinky feet, rotting garbage or cigarette smoke then you likely have some built up dust, debris, moisture and mildew in your air ducts. These smells occur because over time all that nasty stuff adds up and combines to give off some foul odors. If you’ve noticed any of these smells you need your ducts cleaned
Furthermore, there are other smells that you might notice from your air ducts that can be even more dangerous. For example, if you smell sewage, a burning smell, gunpowder, rotten eggs or exhaust fumes these are signs of more serious problems. If you smell any of these things then it’s important to get your HVAC system checked and your air ducts cleaned.
