Duct cleaning is something that homeowners often neglect. This makes sense in some ways: the ductwork of a house remains hidden from sight most of the time, so it doesn’t often cross people’s minds that it might become dirty and dusty. But make no mistake, regardless of how clean a home you have, contamination will start to develop inside the closed environment of the ducts. The air that circulates into the return air vents on average will move 40 pounds of dust a year through the ductwork. It only takes about two years for the interior of a home’s ventilation system to develop serious clogging from dirt, dust, and other debris.
Regular duct cleaning from professionals to clear out your ventilation system will benefit your home in multiple ways. We’ll look at the most important ones here.

The Ways That Duct Cleaning Benefits Your Home
- Increased indoor air quality: The heat and air sealing on modern houses means they have scant circulation of fresh air, and this leads to stale and polluted indoor air that can adversely affect the health of residents. Low indoor air quality can trigger asthma and allergies, and cause cold- and flu-like symptoms such as coughing, breathing trouble, skin and eye irritation, problems sleeping, headaches, and nausea. Eliminating the reservoir of contamination inside ductwork will help reduce these problems and improve health in general.
- Better heating and cooling efficiency: Even a thin layer of dust inside ductwork will place resistance against the airflow from a home’s forced-air heater or air conditioner. This will force the HVAC system to work harder and drain more power to compensate, and bills will rise. The worse the contamination grows, the more it will cost to keep the HVAC system running—and it may even end up needing serious repairs or early replacement. Duct cleaning gives your heater and air conditioner “clean” lungs so they can work their best.
- A cleaner home: All the dust that the ventilation system collects and then blows out into your air is that much dust that you can’t easily eliminate from your home. You may notice that your house turns dusty soon after you clean it, and no amount of cleaning takes hold for long. Cleaning inside your ducts will help you with cleaning outside the ducts.
