How often should you clean ventilation ducts
To clean your home and reduce your exposure to common pollutants in your kitchen, on your pets or from your renovations, Nettoyeur de la Citéstrongly suggests to clean your air ducts every 5 years. However, there are some exceptions that require an immediate cleaning:
• Buying a new home (new or not)
• Indoor painting
• Replacing your heating unit
Consequences of a dirty ventilation system
Ventilation ducts are the lungs of your home. If dirt, debris and pollutants accumulate there, your home will not breathe as it should and problems begin to arise:
• Condensation or excessive frost on windows
• Moisture stains, mold on the walls, ceilings and in closets
• Peeling paint
• Persistent or unusual odors
• Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat
In extreme cases, certain lung infections such as pneumonia (Legionnaires’ disease) may occur. So be careful!
Wind tunnel cleaning
To clean your lint clogged conduits, our technicians use a wind tunnel blower that pushes the dirt outside of your house. This highly effective method unclogs the worst bottlenecks and it protects you against fire and reduces energy losses.
