When Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?

When is it time to have your Austin air duct cleaning performed? In most cases, the best jobs are performed annually by a professional. What should you look for in an air duct cleaning company? Here are some tips for deciding on when it needs to be done and how to choose the right company. Or to do it yourself.

Air duct cleaning is essential if you have mold, rodents or your air ducts are clogged with dust and debris. The air filter traps dirt and keep sit from entering your home.  If you suspect you have mold, rodents, or an excessive amount of dust, then you’ll need to decide whether to clean the ducts yourself or hire someone to do it.

Do it yourself if…

  • You have gotten rid of rodents completely
  • Mold is minor and hasn’t overrun the entire system
  • Your air ducts are easy to access

Have a professional do it if…

  • You still have rodents
  • Mold is extensive or in hard to reach places
  • You air ducts are hard to access
  • You would like the entire line of ducts cleaned
