Clean and healthy air in your home is important. Millions of allergens can build up in your home's air ducts. Your HVAC system will work more efficiently if you clean your ducts and vents. It will also save you money on heating or cooling costs. While you can do it yourself if the situation is not very dire, it is better to hire a duct and air vent cleaning service.

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association(NADCA), homeowners should have their air ducts cleaned every 3 to 5. The buildup of mold and other pollutants can trigger allergic reactions that could lead to serious health problems for your family. You should clean your air vents more often and change the filters as suggested by manufacturers.

How to clean your home's air ducts and vents

  1. Turn off the heating/air-conditioning system power.
  2. By unscrewing the grilles, air duct covers, and vent covers from walls, you can take them off. You can then clean the grates with your brush. If the grates are extremely dirty or dusty, you may need to clean them with soapy water.
  3. Then you can vacuum the ducts as best as possible. This is where your heavy-duty vacuum comes in. The regular household vacuum may not be powerful enough so you might need to rent a more powerful vacuum. The hoses of most vacuums can reach into the ducts, and extract any mold or mildew that has accumulated.
  4. You can clean your ceiling vents with your broom, particularly if the vacuum is unable to reach them. To protect your eyes, wear a dust mask if you haven't cleaned your ducts in a while.
