Your air ducts are linked to your HVAC system, but they’re also a favorite hiding place for dust, dirt and other allergens. If it’s been awhile since you’ve had your ducts cleaned, it could be circulating contaminants. Therefore, it’s important to invest in professional air duct cleaning. At Connett Services, we use the most advanced technology to clean air ducts and vents in the Des Moines, IA area. Our technicians have the expertise and proper equipment to significantly improve your indoor air quality.
Over time, dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen and other contaminants build up inside the air ducts, making them a breeding ground for:
- And other microbes
When these pollutants are recirculated through your home, they negatively impact your family’s health and comfort.
Your home’s indoor air quality is important and maintaining a comfortable and healthy environment requires you to have a clean, properly functioning HVAC system. Regular duct cleaning keeps allergens, pollutants, and mold out of your home’s indoor air.
Signs Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning
- Mold in your AC or furnace. Mold found on your air handler, AC or furnace isn’t usually a guarantee that the ductwork has been affected, but it certainly increases the chances.
- Your home has just been built or has undergone a major renovation. Construction is often very messy. Even when contractors are meticulous about closing off and cleaning work areas, dust and debris will always find its way in. And unless your HVAC system is kept completely covered and not turned on during the entire process, the dirt and debris will find its way into the ductwork.
- Increased heating and cooling costs. If you notice a sudden spike in your utility bills, your home’s ductwork might be partially to blame.
- Your home is very dusty regardless of how often you clean. If you notice that the surfaces in your house become dusty almost immediately after you’ve cleaned then, you probably need to hire an air duct cleaning company.

The (NADCA) National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends homeowners have their air ducts cleaned every three to five years. Still, the timing depends on the region in which you live, how often you use your HVAC system and whether you have family members that have respiratory problems. In addition, mold and other pollutants causing a reaction may need more immediate air duct cleaning for the health of your home and family.
