What is Duct Cleaning?

Duct cleaning is a service that cleans your ductwork to remove dust and debris that accumulate over time. This service includes the cleaning of your ductwork’s supply and return air ducts as well as all grilles, registers and diffusers that cover your air vents.

Duct cleaning requires a high-powered vacuum and other specialized equipment, so it is not a DIY job. If you decide to get a duct cleaning, it is important to choose a reputable company that will have the right tools and licensing to complete the job correctly.

Duct Cleaning Benefits

Forced air systems that provide central air conditioning and heating use ductwork to distribute warmed and cooled air throughout your home. Ducts can be exposed or hidden within your ceilings and walls, and they are an integral part of keeping your HVAC system working efficiently.

Cleaning your air ducts can improve HVAC performance if there is a large amount of debris in your ducts that limit airflow and make your heating and cooling systems work harder to distribute air.

Duct cleaning can also help improve indoor air quality that is being impacted by:

  • Large accumulations of dust that get released through vents when the heater or AC is on.
  • Pest infestations, such as rodents and insects, that have entered your ducts.
  • Visible mold and mildew growth in your air ducts or vents.

If you’re experiencing air quality issues because of your ductwork (such as unexplained allergies, cold symptoms, or worsened asthma), a duct cleaning can help. However, it isn’t a magical solution – there may be other factors contributing to the situation. This is why duct cleanings should start with a thorough inspection to find any additional underlying issues and prevent them from causing the same problem again in the future.

If your ducts haven’t been cleaned in the last 10+ years, you are more likely to see a benefit from duct cleaning. You do not need duct cleaning every year (nor should you believe companies that say you do). Some homes can benefit from duct cleaning every 2-3 years, especially if they have existing dust issues or pets, but other homes can go longer between cleanings.
