Not everyone believes air duct cleaning to be a necessary home maintenance task. In fact, some homeowners might not have ever given it a second thought, or they even believe it to be a completely needless effort. At Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning, we recommend that homes have their air ducts cleaned every 4-6 years or more frequently, depending on the individual circumstances. We’ve heard a lot of misconceptions about cleaning air ducts over the years and will share four with you in this article.
1. Air Duct Cleaning Is Not Necessary for Newer Homes
Some believe that as long as they live in a newer home with a newer HVAC system, there is no need to get air ducts cleaned. While the age of your system is certainly not the only compelling reason to get your air ducts cleaned, it will help your system run more efficiently regardless of age.
2. Air Duct Cleaning Only Needs to Be Completed Once
This task should be completed every few years and perhaps even more frequently if you or any household members have allergies or other respiratory symptoms, live with furry pets, or have recently undergone a home renovation. We also know that the average American family spends 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of pollutants are higher than outdoor concentrations.
3. Air Duct Cleaning Will Release Contaminants into the Air
Not only will air duct cleaning not release dust, debris, or other contaminants into your air, but it will actually physically remove them from your home. One of the benefits of air duct cleaning is eliminating the dust from your home, which we accomplish through our source removal cleaning method.
4. Homeowners Can Complete Air Duct Cleaning
You might be enticed to try cleaning your air ducts yourself, but remember that professional air duct cleaners should follow the National Air Duct Cleaners Association standards. At Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning, we meticulously follow their cleaning protocol using professional tools, products, and equipment.
