Home maintenance is a day-in and day-out process. What many individuals don’t realize is that paying attention to small details prevents disastrous effects. One of those details is your air ventilation system. 

Our team at Superior Air Duct Cleaning understands this and works to regulate cleaning routines of air ventilation systems for our clients to keep their homes safe. In today’s blog, we’ll discuss our top tips to remember when cleaning air ducts using an air duct vacuum. 


Vacuum Yearly

The EPA article, Should You Have the Air Ducts in Your Home Cleaned? states that, though it hasn’t been proven that particles in the air of your home aid in sickness, it definitely helps prevent potential sickness to have your air ducts cleaned yearly. 


For some, this is simply reaching inside and removing particulates. For others, this process includes utilizing an air duct vacuum to ensure all particulate matter is removed. 


Careful Not To Damage Your Duct

Using an air duct vacuum can cause damage to your air ducts by puncturing them if you stick it too far into the duct. 

It’s highly recommended the vacuum not be placed farther than 8 inches into your air duct to prevent tearing it. 


Watch For Mold 

The only particulates proven to damage your lungs in the air are the fungal spores from mold growing in your air ducts. Most people don’t realize mold can grow within air ducts, but it actually can! It can also grow as a result of water leakage into your air ducts.

Watching for mold, and cleaning to prevent the spread of infected dust spores will prevent sickness and contracting airborne allergens.
