If someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, then you know the importance of indoor air quality. It is important to understand how your air ducts can get clogged, why you should clean your air ducts, and what is involved in the air duct cleaning process.

How Do Ducts Get Backed Up?

Air ducts can accumulate dirt and debris over time. Dust accumulates in the home and gets pulled into the system, even if you change the filter as often as recommended. The same kinds of dust bunnies that accumulate under furniture can form in the ducts that supply air to bedrooms and other parts of the house.

Why Clean Your Air Ducts?

Threats from clogged air ducts include mold, vermin, dust, and debris particles. Mold can cause those with allergies to have problems breathing and, in extreme cases, even affect the respiratory health of others. Taking control of the indoor air quality in your home is an important step towards protecting the health of your family. Insulation around air ducts that is allowed to get wet may collect mold, and it should be replaced.

You should be aware that although a substance may look like mold, a positive determination of whether it is mold or not can be made only by an expert and may require laboratory analysis for final confirmation. For about $50, some microbiology laboratories can tell you whether a sample sent to them on a clear strip of sticky household tape is mold or simply a substance that resembles it.
