A vent is a channel through which heated or cooled air from heating/cooling systems passes into the rooms of the house. It is a key element of a building, whether residential, commercial or institutional, that must be taken care of to maintain optimal indoor air quality, and therefore to preserve the health of all occupants. Cleaning is part of the maintenance procedures to be performed regularly for this.
Every time you clean your home, some dust and other dirt gets into your vents. Over time, they then begin to settle. However, this affects the quality of the air that is diffused in the rooms. Indeed, the air carries with it small polluting particles when passing through the canal, causing health problems of varying degrees for the occupants who breathe it, especially for sensitive subjects such as asthmatics or allergy sufferers.
You may also notice that dust persists on your furniture even if you clean it regularly. In addition, a thorough cleaning of the air ducts is a good opportunity to inspect the entire system for any anomalies such as mold, rust or other damage. This way, you can take the necessary steps before the situation gets worse.
In general, it is recommended to clean your vents at least once every 5 years. However, there are other factors that may require you to perform maintenance a little more often:
Also, it is imperative that you clean your vents after any work is done in your home. Indeed, the materials used are sometimes very polluting and dangerous for health. Finally, it is important to note that the filters should be cleaned or changed at least once every 2 months.
You can clean your air ducts at any time of the year. Nevertheless, many people prefer to do it a little before winter to benefit from an optimal air quality during the coldest periods when it is generally impossible to open the doors and windows to air the house. In addition, here are some signs that should alert you:
Clean your air ducts without wasting time if you notice any of these signs.
