Surprisingly, yes. Construction debris is one of the most common types of contamination that we find in air duct systems. Fine particles such as drywall dust, sawdust, as well as other materials can make their way into your system when the construction crews are cleaning up. The only way to thoroughly remove all of these pollutants from your system is through professional cleaning.

Dust, fungi, and bacteria have been shown to collect in ventilation systems. These contaminants are potentially harmful to your health, irritating or triggering certain allergies. The removal of these contaminants from your HVAC system should be viewed as a step in improving the air quality of your home.

Dirt and debris may collect in your ventilation system, blocking ductwork and key components of the furnace, including the evaporator coil and blower. The build-up of these contaminants in the furnace can restrict airflow, causing your system to work harder and longer, thus requiring more energy. Cleaning the entire HVAC system will increase efficiency and extend the unit’s life.

There is no industry standard for how often your air ducts need to be cleaned. Except in extreme circumstances, there is no reason your ducts would need to be cleaned more than once a year. In fact, many people can easily go two years between cleanings. You should take precautions, such as preventing debris from getting into your ducts. The best thing to do is sit down with a reputable duct cleaning professional and establish a cleaning schedule suitable for your home.
