Many homeowners are skeptical about air duct cleaning. However, what they don’t know is that cleaning your air ducts can reduce your exposure to allergens and contaminants, eliminate mold and fungi growth, improve HVAC system performance, lower utility bills, and much more.

Since the EPA has designated poor indoor air quality as a top-five environmental health concern, FloCore’s professionals stress the importance of clearing your ventilation system, checking and changing your HVAC system’s filters, scheduling regular inspections, and sealing your ducts.

Both the EPA and the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) agree that duct cleaning can benefit a wide variety of customers, especially people living with children, elderly occupants, multiple pets, chronic respiratory illness, or smokers. In fact, it is recommended to have your air ducts cleaned once every three years, especially if you have allergies or asthma.

When do I need to get my air ducts cleaned?

NADCA experts say that the need for duct cleaning depends on a number of factors, including pets, recent construction work, local weather conditions and your home’s cleanliness. A professional technicians will offer an inspection beforehand to determine if your ducts have significant build-up.

You see—air duct cleaning doesn’t just sweep the ducts, but also touches every component that air passes over, including coils and the central system. The task involves at least two professional technicians, a few hours of work and the use of specialized equipment. Ultimately, a thorough cleaning can yield long-term energy savings, improved HVAC performance, and a reduced carbon footprint.

How do I know if I’m hiring a quality professional?

Since many states and towns don’t license air duct cleaners, you should check a business’s professional credentials instead, such as NADCA membership. EPA recommends that all duct cleaners follow NADCA standards. Certified companies must keep at least one technician on staff who has passed a NADCA test—a rigorous examination that is administered in order to earn the certificate.
