Professional Duct Cleaning For Residents Across Nassau & Suffolk Counties
When was the last time you thought about your air ducts? Most ductwork is hidden behind our walls, floors, and ceilings – out of sight, out of mind. Consequently, we don’t think about them until there is a problem. In fact, air ducts are one of the most overlooked parts of a homeowner’s HVAC system.
However, proper maintenance of your ductwork, including regular duct cleaning, can go a long way in keeping your system running efficiently. At Universe Home Services, we are your go-to duct cleaning experts, and we are standing by to help you get the most out of your system.
How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?
You should have your air ducts professionally cleaned every three to five years. How often you have your ducts cleaned will depend largely on the conditions of your home, where you live, and how often you run your heating and cooling system.
Some of the benefits of routine duct cleaning can include:
- Improved indoor air quality
- More efficient heating and cooling
- Reduction of pollen, dust, and other allergens
- Less dust in your home
We would also like to point out that a small amount of dust in your ductwork is normal, and this does not necessarily mean that your ducts need to be cleaned immediately. If you are unsure whether you should schedule air duct cleaning, speak with one of our duct cleaning technicians. We can inspect your system and tell you whether you need a cleaning now or if you can wait.
Signs You Need Professional Duct Cleaning
Because it’s hard to know if your ductwork needs to be cleaned without a thorough inspection, many people rely on scheduling routine cleanings every few years. Doing so ensures that their ducts are cleaned often enough, and they don’t have to worry about it. Duct cleaning just becomes part of their routine home maintenance schedule.
That being said, if you’ve only recently moved into your home or don’t know when the last time your ducts were cleaned, there are things to look out for. If you start noticing any of the following issues, reach out to Universe Home Services to schedule an inspection and possible cleaning service for your air ducts.
You may need professional duct cleaning if you notice:
- Visible dirt and dust in and around your ducts
- Foul odors coming from your ducts
- Signs of mold growth around your registers
- An increase in dust around your house
- Your air filters need more frequent changing
You may also need duct cleaning if you have recently dealt with a pest or rodent problem. Similarly, if you hear scratching or other sounds coming from inside your ducts, you may currently have a pest issue. If this is the case, you will want your ducts cleaned out as soon as the pest problem is resolved. Failure to clean pest debris from your ducts can irritate respiratory conditions or cause other health problems.
