Air Duct Cleaning: Is it worth the costs?
Air Duct Cleaning Benefits
Knowledge of definitive health benefits of having air ducts cleaned seem to be up in the air. But those with allergies can see the obvious benefits of not having allergens blown into a closed environment from moldy or dusty air vents.
Since conditions in every home are different, it is impossible to generalize about whether or not air duct cleaning in your home would be beneficial.
If no one in your household suffers from allergies or unexplained symptoms or illnesses and if, after a visual inspection of the inside of the ducts, you see no indication that your air ducts are contaminated with large deposits of dust or mold (no musty odor or visible mold growth), having your air ducts cleaned is probably unnecessary. It is normal for the return registers to get dusty as dust-laden air is pulled through the grate.
This does not indicate that your air ducts are contaminated with heavy deposits of dust or debris; the registers can be easily vacuumed or removed and cleaned.
On the other hand, if family members are experiencing unusual or unexplained symptoms or illnesses that you think might be related to your home environment, you should discuss the situation with your doctor.
You may consider having your air ducts cleaned simply because it seems logical that air ducts will get dirty over time and should occasionally be cleaned. While the debate about the value of periodic duct cleaning continues, no evidence suggests that such cleaning would be detrimental, provided that it is done properly.
You should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned if:
1. There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts or on other components.
2. Ducts are infested with vermin, (rodents or insects)
3. Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles.
So consider the value of your health and do some advanced research of local air duct cleaning companies to make sure you contact only reputable firms. Do your research online and ask family and friends about companies they have used for air duct cleaning and you’ll breath easier.
