If your office or business has a central HVAC unit, the chances are good that you use commercial services for your repair and maintenance needs. This includes cleaning your HVAC ducts. How can you tell your ducts need cleaning? Look for the following clues:
Visible Particles Flowing out of Your Vents
This is one is the strongest indicators that ductwork cleaning is necessary. If you can see dust, hair and other particles flowing out of your heating and cooling vents, it's almost certain that the inside of your ductwork has a layer of dust and other contaminants on its surface.
Frequent Air Filter Changes Required
Your HVAC's air filter generally requires cleaning or replacing every few months. But if it becomes fully clogged after just a few weeks, that probably means extensive dirt and dust in your ductwork. Because of all that dust and dirt, your air filter simply can't keep up with cleaning the air. Much of what it's cleaning is coming from the ductwork and not the air itself.
The Inside of your HVAC Has a Layer of Dust
With proper air filtering, the inside of your HVAC's air handler will be clean and dust free. But if your ductwork needs cleaning, you might notice that the inside of your HVAC has a layer of visible dust. The thicker the layer, the more your ductwork needs cleaning.
Infestation in Your Ductwork
If you notice a dead bug or two in your ductwork or vents, that's probably normal. But if you see a full-blown infestation, you have a serious problem which will require thorough ductwork cleaning.
