    What Happens If You Don’t Clean Your Air Ducts?

    Posted on January 29th, 2023 by Mike Corliss

    What happens if you dont clean your air ducts

    Keeping your air ducts clean can be important to your health. The ducts carry dust, pet dander, and other allergens throughout the home, and if they are not cleaned, they can be hazardous to you and your family. Not only can dirty air ducts promote bacteria and allergens in the home, they can also lead to higher utility bills. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to keep your air ducts clean, including sealing them and hiring professional duct cleaning services.

    When your air ducts are clogged with dust, mold, or other allergens, your indoor air quality is drastically reduced. This can lead to respiratory issues, skin irritation, and other illnesses. It can also lead to higher utility bills, as your heating and cooling systems work harder to push air through the ducts.

    The health benefits of cleaning your air ducts are many, and can extend to your whole family. Dust is the most common form of indoor air pollution, but mold can also grow inside the ducts. If mold isn’t treated, it can lead to dampness and bacteria growth. The mold can also produce a foul odor. Keeping your air ducts clean will also save you from costly repairs later on.

    The best way to keep your air ducts clean is to hire a professional duct cleaning company. If you do it yourself, make sure you have the right tools and protective gear to protect you from the dust and other contaminates that are likely to be blown into the air. You’ll also want to ensure that the registers are covered. This will help keep dirt and dust from building up in the ducts, which can make duct cleaning more challenging.

    Air ducts can also contain a number of small and large-sized insects. These insects can pose a health risk to your family, and can even spread disease.

    Another way to keep your air ducts clean is to have them cleaned every so often. Duct cleaning is an effective way to keep the air in your home clean, but it may be time-consuming depending on your home’s size and condition. If your air ducts are not clean, you may experience colds, sinus headaches, coughing, and sore throats. You may also have trouble sleeping, which is a sign that your ducts are dirty. It’s also a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned when you buy a new home. It will also give you peace of mind knowing that you are breathing clean air.

    Keeping your air ducts clean will not only improve the quality of the air you breathe, it will also help your family avoid illnesses. If you have a history of respiratory problems or allergies, you should consider having your ducts cleaned to keep your family healthy and happy. This will also prevent bacteria from spreading throughout your home and your lungs from getting clogged up.

    I had Dave come to clean the dryer vent and he also reattached the duct that was not installed properly when I purchased the dryer a month ago. I could feel heat and smell fabric softener every time I ran the dryer after he fixed it I haven’t had a problem since.
