Let’s face it – many businesses don’t think about HVAC maintenance when planning their yearly budgets. It’s easy to forget about it until employees start noticing excessive illness or allergy symptoms. The good news: regular air duct cleaning can help keep your indoor air quality in tip top shape.

Not cleaning out air ducts every 5 years at least can cause – at minimum – blockage, potential leaks, or mold growth. If you don’t notice it at first, you might start to see it manifest in unexplained headaches, allergies getting worse, and harder-to-breathe air. A lot of these health issues occur due to build-up in an unreachable area, which is why trying to solve it with household items often doesn’t work.

As experts, we typically recommend cleaning your air ducts every 3 -5 years. It depends on how many people are usually in your business and if you have a lot of additional particles entering the air (like in a workshop). Your business’ air quality affects the health or your customers and employees, so it’s best to start thinking now about how you plan to take care of your HVAC in the new year.
