How to Tell if Your Home Needs a Duct Cleaning

At Four Seasons, our duct cleaning specialists have found that while many homeowners understand the value of professional duct cleaning, the majority are unable to tell whether or not their home needs one.

Indoor air quality normally degrades little by little, and we naturally acclimate to the changes. Because of this, it can be difficult to tell if anything has changed. If we were able to shrink down and walk through our ductwork, the decision to schedule a duct cleaning would be an easy one. But we can’t do that, of course, so we have to take a step back and look around our home to spot the signs of dirty ducts instead.

Here Are Four Signs That Your Ducts Need to Be Cleaned by a Specialist:

Sinus Irritation

Dirty ducts can be a major contributing factor to many common face, eye, and lung irritations. If you’re experiencing headaches, sore throats, and itchy eyes while at home, your ducts might need to be cleaned.

Recurring Dust

There’s no home in the world that doesn’t become dusty every once in a while. However, when your ducts are dirty, the dust will return far more often than normal.

If you feel like your home constantly needs dusting, it could be due to the abundance of dust and debris in your ducts.

Recent Construction

If your home was recently remodeled, sawdust and other debris could have found its way into your ductwork. Even if your ducts were recently cleaned, they likely need to be cleaned again as a result of the excess dust and debris from the construction.


Our pets product dander on a daily basis. Your cat, dog, weasel, groundhog, or any other furry friend could be shedding tiny skin flakes every day that will make their way into your ducts.

4 reasons to clean your ducts
