Clean Your Ducts Every 3 to 5 Years

As a rule of thumb, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests cleaning your ducts every 3 to five 5. There is not a formula for figuring out an exact time period. Rather, professionals have collectively based it on past experience with a wide range of systems. If your HVAC system needs cleaning more than once a year, then there is a problem with the system that is allowing dirt to infiltrate the components. You should call a Dust Doctors expert to get the air system fixed, and forget about the cleaning!


As people are getting more health conscious, attention to a clean HVAC system is becoming more popular. There is no solid timeframe suggested in which to clean your air ducts. However, there are obvious signs you need to clean them. If you are unsure or have questions about whether you need HVAC duct cleaning, contact your local HVAC experts for guidance. Dust Doctors can point out any areas that may need work and help you to decide. If you live in the Minneapolis, Minnesota metro area, give us a call.
