Is it Time for a Duct Cleaning Appointment?

When it comes to improving your indoor air quality, scheduling a duct cleaning service is a great place to start. Your ducts can get dirty as time passes and dust builds up inside of the system. But how do you know if it’s time to schedule a duct cleaning service for your home?

You can keep reading to learn more about the signs that indicate it’s time for a duct cleaning appointment. Then you can give our team a call for all of your indoor air quality services in Batavia, OH. We’re here to help with everything from duct cleaning to air purifiers and anything else that can help improve your indoor air quality.

Dusty Surfaces

First, we want to say that it is completely normal to have to wipe down surfaces in your home because they get dusty. What isn’t normal is for dust to reappear in a layer on shelves and tables around your home very soon after you wipe them down. 

Dusting should be more of a monthly task rather than something you have to do every few days or even weekly. If you’re noticing that you have to dust more frequently, dirty ducts may be to blame for this problem. As dust builds up in the ductwork, it mixes back into clean air and blows out into your home as clean air passes through the ducts.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

It’s also concerning if you have poor indoor air quality. Dust, as mentioned above, is one sign of poor indoor air quality. But there are also other signs that you should watch for. If your home has a bad odor that you can’t quite pinpoint the source of, the problem may be dirty ductwork. Odors can cling to dust and dirt particles and then recirculate through your home again and again. You may not be able to clean enough to keep up with the excessive dust inside of the ducts and you need a fresh start.

You may also get sick more often or suffer from more severe allergy symptoms if your ductwork is dirty. We know that it can be easy to write off illnesses and allergies as something you just have to deal with. But when you invest in ductwork cleaning, you can lessen the likelihood that you’ll get sick and reduce the allergy symptoms that you experience.

Lack of Airflow

You should also pay attention to a lack of airflow in either one room or all across your home. A lack of airflow can mean that air is escaping through holes in the ductwork. If this is happening, dust from your attic or basement is also getting into the ductwork while cool air escapes. In addition to duct cleaning, you might also need a ductwork repair appointment for us to address any damage and reseal duct connections to prevent dust from getting in as easily in the future.
