3 Signs That Mean It’s Time To Clean Your Ducts
Posted on Blogs April 11, 2014 by Terry Jones
The details and inner workings of a home ventilation system are a mystery to most people until a problem occurs. Home energy inspections help reveal issues with ducts, such as dust, mold or insects, which can contaminate the air in a home and drive up energy costs. Read below to learn some key information about your home’s ductwork maintenance and when a home inspection or cleaning is necessary.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified three signs that indicate immediate cleaning is necessary for home ductwork. They are:
1. Dust In The Air Stream
It is common for dust to collect in air ducts, which is why it is important to schedule regular inspections and keep up with necessary maintenance. This dust buildup can enter the airstream of your home and cause allergies and respiratory problems for you and your loved ones.
2. Mold Growth
Mold in your home is dangerous for many reasons. It can cause significant health problems and also damage the integrity of the structure by causing rot.
3. Insects Inside Ducts
Ducts can be a very suitable environment for vermin and insects to make a home.
