Many people begin their spring-cleaning projects around their homes as we say goodbye to winter. People start looking at their closets to purge anything they no longer need, the carpet gets a deep cleaning, and windows are opened to let in the fresh air. 

At Golden Line Green Care, we have noticed that many homeowners do not include duct cleaning in their spring cleaning list. 

As duct cleaning professionals in Toronto and the GTA, we have compiled 4 reasons why duct cleaning should be on your spring cleaning checklist. 

1. Improve Your Indoor Air Quality 

During winter, it’s likely that during these colder months, you didn’t open your windows often. This significantly impacts your indoor air quality due to a lack of continuous fresh air through your home, leading to more dust and contaminants in your home. As a result, your home may feel stuffy. 

Are you feeling congested or have headaches? Do you have a runny nose? Are your allergies acting up? 

These symptoms could be a result of the air quality in your home. Additionally, as plants begin to bloom, there is often an increment in pollen and other allergens in the air. The combination of allergens and the buildup of dust in the spring can be detrimental to the air quality of your home. 

Scheduling a duct cleaning in the spring can clear out all the dust, pet dander, and other contaminants and stop your HVAC system from spreading them around your home. 

2. Prevent Mold and Mildew 

Mould or mildew developed in your air ducts is not uncommon. This can happen in humidity-prone rooms, like the kitchen and bathrooms. As air circulates through your air ducts, mould spores spread throughout your home, which can cause respiratory and other health problems. Mould is a significant issue, mainly when it’s black mold, posing a higher health risk. Cleaning your air ducts regularly will not only remove any existing problems but also help prevent mold from developing in the future. 

3. Boost the Efficiency of HVAC

The buildup of dust, pollen and dirt can also cause your HVAC system to work harder to circulate air, resulting in a loss of efficiency. Dust can also be pulled into the system itself, creating more buildup and potential repair problems. 

Cleaning your air ducts in the spring can help give your whole system a boost and get it ready for the hot summer months. As a result, a more efficient system requires less energy to run, saving you money on your energy bills. 

4. Extend the Life of Your Ductwork and HVAC System

Air ducts are designed to last up to 15 years with the correct maintenance and cleaning. An air conditioner can last for up to 10 to 15 years as well. Having your ductwork cleaning annually can extend the lifespan of your entire HVAC system. When not regularly cleaned, the buildup can damage your ductwork. 

Regardless of the reason, spring is a great time to open your house to get rid of winter and clean up its residue.
