The Biggest Hidden Threats
If you notice either you or other family members getting sick for no particular reason, it could be a result of a dirty duct that might be harboring various contaminants that would trigger potential asthma attacks.

Therefore, having a regular maintenance schedule for your HVAC system could significantly help with keeping all your home’s ducts nice and clean. However, with all that being said, there is no actual way to tell for sure if your ducts are cleaned unless they get professionally examined.

While duct replacement is often costlier than simply cleaning your ductwork, but, it’ll guarantee that the ducts in your humble abode are at peak cleanliness and thereby provide your home with exceptional indoor air quality.
