You are currently viewing When Should You Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned?

Many different companies will tell you different things about whether or not you should get your air ducts cleaned.

Some say it’s completely unnecessary, while others say you should get it done every year. Here at Kelly, we are guided by science in our recommendations to customers. According to the EPA, you should get your air ducts cleaned if:

  1. There is visible mold growing in your air ducts
  2. Your ducts are infested with vermin, or
  3. Your ducts have excessive amounts of dust and debris.

These are the conditions under which Kelly also recommends you get your air ducts cleaned.

While these three situations may be uncommon in some parts of the country, there are some extra considerations to take into account based on your location. Here in Ventura County, there is a high risk of mold in your air ducts due to the high humidity in conjunction with darkness and stale air. There is also a high risk of accumulating large amounts of dust and debris because of the fires that often plague California. The ash that comes off these fires can easily get stuck in your air ducts and clog them.

Also, we sometimes have the Santa Ana winds blowing in our direction, which kick up an incredible amount of dust that can get into your air ducts.

Because of this, we recommend that you check your air ducts regularly, especially after particularly humid seasons and after big fires. If you are unsure about the quality of your ducts, Kelly Cleaning offers a video inspection service to check your ducts and determine whether they need to be cleaned. If you do decide to have the cleaning done, the cost of the inspection will be waived!

At Kelly Cleaning, you can be sure that your ducts will be cleaned properly, with the best technology, and only when necessary.

Kelly uses the RotoBrush system, which is equipped with a RotoVision inspection system that allows us to show you exactly what the problems are in your ducts. Our technicians are specifically trained in air duct cleaning, so you can be confident that the person who cleans your ducts has both the understanding and expertise required to do the job thoroughly.
