Getting a professional duct cleaning is something that every homeowner should strongly consider doing. If you don’t clean your ducts on a regular basis, you’re taking a risk in that your home’s air quality might begin declining due to the amount of dust, debris and more that can build up in your ducts. Poor air quality will not only affect the quality of life and comfort of your home, but can also have negative effects on those people living in your home that suffer from respiratory illnesses, asthma or allergies. So how exactly do you know if you need a professional duct cleaning? The following are three signs to look out for:

  1. There are vermin in your ducts – If you see rodents or insects in or around your duct area, you’ll definitely want them cleaned out. Vermin are incredibly unsanitary and you don’t want them living anywhere in your home.  They could leave behind dust and debris in your ducts that you definitely want to get cleaned out.
  2. There’s excessive dust or debris – If you can see dust and debris being released into the air from your registers, then your ducts are probably full of dust and debris that needs to be cleaned out.
  3. Your family is experiencing unexplained allergies- Whether old pollen or dust is the cause, you might have allergens in your ducts that are getting released into the air.  Cleaning them out can help reduce the allergens in your home.

These are three signs that you need to have your ducts cleaned by a professional.  Contact us at Daffy Ducts to get your Atlanta ducts cleaned out in time for the cold weather this fall.  You don’t want to be stuck indoors all winter with dusty ducts!
