Do you find yourself dusting on a seemingly constant basis? And no matter what you try, the dust seems to reappear within a couple of days? If so, dirty ductwork may be the culprit behind your dustier-than-normal home. When your ducts haven’t been cleaned in years (or ever) your HVAC system continually recirculates dirty, dust-laden air into your living areas. The result? That oh-so-annoying coating of grey stuff almost everywhere you look.

Fortunately, there’s a simple way to tackle a persistent dust problem, and at Dust Doctors, we’ve got the perfect prescription: duct cleaning. In this blog, we discuss how dust accumulates in your ductwork, why it makes your living areas dusty, and what you should do about it. Let’s get started.

How Does Dust Build Up Inside Your Ducts?

Household dust is a collection of dozens of different particles, including skin flakes, soil, pollen, animal dander, chemicals, clothing fibers, dust mites, and other microscopic goodies. Gross, right? Whenever you enter your house, you bring with you thousands of tiny particles that ultimately end up collecting inside your living areas, contributing to dust accumulation. This buildup is normal, unavoidable even — but that doesn’t mean it’s something you don’t need to worry about.

When dust collects inside your living areas, your HVAC system eventually picks it up as it recirculates your indoor air. A sizeable amount of that dust collects inside your ductwork and eventually, your HVAC system pushes it back into your living areas. It’s an ongoing cycle that many homeowners struggle with, but fortunately, there’s a simple solution for this super common problem: routine duct cleaning.

How Does Duct Cleaning Help?

Professional duct cleaning is designed to remove all traces of dust and other debris from within your ductwork. Using specialized cleaning tools, negative pressure vacuums, and advanced dust collection systems, a professional duct cleaning specialist first scrubs the interior of your ducts.

After dislodging the buildup, the dust and debris are then funneled out of your house through specialized vacuums and collected in an outdoor tank for disposal. When your ducts are free of buildup, they can no longer recirculate dust into your living areas. The result? Far less frequent dusting! Who doesn’t love that?
