5 Signs Your Home Could Use a Duct Cleaning:
Recent Renovation: If your home had a recent renovation or remodelling – especially if there was lead paint removal or significant dust – your ductwork may need to be cleaned. Vents should be sealed during home renovations, if they weren’t, dangerous dust and debris might have become lodged inside the ductwork and circulated throughout your home via your HVAC system.
Insects & Animals: Our technicians have found mice, rats, hamsters, spiders, fly eggs, and many other unwanted critters within ductwork. If you notice a strange smell coming from your ductwork or see evidence of infestation in your ducts or HVAC system, Climate Works can remove the problem then provide cleaning and sanitization of your ductwork and HVAC unit.
Mould & Water Damage: If you experience a flood in your home and water enters your ductwork, beware of mould! If there is visible mould growth inside the ductwork, the ducts and HVAC system must be cleaned and sanitized.
Dust Accumulation & Contaminants: When was your home built? When was the last time your home had its ducts cleaned? Over time dust and dirt will accumulate in your ductwork and may cause restricted airflow, meaning your HVAC system isn’t operating at peak efficiency. If noticeable debris, pet hair, odours, or other contaminants are being released through your vents after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed, then the ducts may need to be cleaned.
Illness: If someone in your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness, and you’ve taken every other possible step to decontaminate your home, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit.
When a duct cleaning is complete by a trained NADCA professional from Climate Works, you can expect better air quality in your home and a more efficient HVAC system. A duct cleaning does not need to be on your regular home maintenance list, but under many circumstances, it may be in your best interest to get one.
