Duct cleaning is a good option for some people with certain conditions or circumstances. Before you decide to have your ductwork cleaned there are several things to consider.
“Knowledge about air duct cleaning is in its early stages, so a blanket recommendation cannot be offered as to whether you should have your air ducts in your home cleaned. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urges you to read this document in its entirety as it provides important information on the subject.
Duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. Neither do studies conclusively demonstrate that particle (e.g., dust) levels in homes increase because of dirty air ducts. This is because much of the dirt in air ducts adheres to duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space. It is important to keep in mind that dirty air ducts are only one of many possible sources of particles that are present in homes.
Pollutants that enter the home both from outdoors and indoor activities such as cooking, cleaning, smoking, or just moving around can cause greater exposure to contaminants than dirty air ducts. Moreover, there is no evidence that a light amount of household dust or other particulate matter in air ducts poses any risk to your health.” - EPA.gov
- The term should actually be “Kind of Duct Cleaning” because unless you wash the duct with a detergent it won’t be clean like new.
- Cleaning ductwork won’t eliminate dust in the house
- Unlicensed heating and cooling companies cannot clean your coil & blower wheel.
