Signs Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning

Atlantic Bay Contracting is dedicated to helping our customers improve the air quality in their homes through air duct cleaning and scrubbing. With over 25 years of experience, we’ve found air ducts to be a common cause of health concerns for many and believe in the importance of regular cleaning. If you’ve been wondering when might be the best time to do it, here are a few of the common causes we believe you should be aware of.

Excessive dirt and dust found around your home

As your ducts become filled with debris, it can impact your systems’ ability to create proper airflow. This often means it will release pollutants into the air as it attempts to circulate air. If you notice your furniture, floors, and other areas of your home are suffering from dust and dirt build up, it’s likely time to clean your ducts.

Build up on the return air registers

Similar to finding more dust and dirt around your home, you can easily see the need for duct cleaning and scrubbing when your return air registers have a buildup of debris. That layer created on the vent can make airflow more challenging and continues to spread the debris as it’s blown out by forced air.

Visible mold growth

Central air utilizes both heating and cooling to regulate the temperature in your home, which creates condensation. Visible mold growth in your duct work is often an indication that there is a moisture problem that might be remedied with professional air duct cleaning and scrubbing.

Your allergies have worsened

Did you know that your common causes of allergies can exist in your air ducts? Atlantic Bay Contracting has helped many customers identify dust, mice dander, mold, and other pathogens that have made their allergies worse through our extensive duct cleaning and scrubbing.

Unfortunately, you might not see or notice many of these signs every day, so it’s important to invest in routine cleaning and scrubbing. Atlantic Bay Contracting works with Rotobrush®, which offers a patented brush and vacuum method. By using a rotation brush, our experts aren’t only sucking out the pathogens and bacteria in your ducts, but are instead forcing them out and scrubbing your ducts clean.
