What Can Happen To Your Home If You Neglect Air Duct Cleaning? (We Can Tell You)

What happens if you don’t regularly carry out air duct cleaning? Residential and commercial duct systems work hard to channel warm and cool air from your HVAC unit. But without proper maintenance, costly issues can creep up. In this blog, we’re going to look at what can potentially happen to your ducts, vents, and your home, if you neglect air duct cleaning for too long.

Mold Could Build Up And Spread

One of the major issues with letting your vents and air ducts go untreated is mold. This is especially common in vents with insulation. If any water gets into your vents, or condensation is allowed to build up, then the moisture will stay. Over time, without proper air duct cleaning and maintenance, the moisture will grow mold and mildew over time.

The real problem here is due to what your ducts do: disperse air throughout a structure. Once your HVAC turns on, mold spores are blown throughout your home or office. Not only will this create a musty, unpleasant smell, but lead to poor respiratory health and allergic reactions.

Impaired HVAC Performance

A buildup of dust and debris in air ducts will also clog them. Over time, dust will clump together, building up in the duct and around outlets, vents, and filters.

Clogged ducts reduce airflow, forcing your HVAC system to work harder than it needs to. If left for long enough, it could stop ducts from working altogether.
