Factors of Dependence
There isn’t a regular time frame. Instead, cleaning your air conditioning vents is dependent upon the circumstance. For instance, if you have a register in a kitchen floor, and you have a lot of food that is being dropped into the vent by small children it might be good to have your vents cleaned out once in a while. The same can be said if you have teenagers that don’t understand the correct methods of sweeping the kitchen floor and they decide to use your vents instead of a dust pan. Another instance where you will need regular cleaning is if your air conditioning vents are not sealed. When an air vent isn’t correctly sealed, it pulls outside air into the vent. If your vents are running through a crawl space, or musty basement, you will be pulling that air into the rest of your home and into your lungs. If your air conditioning vents are leaky, Team Electric Plumbing & Air can help fix your system. Regular cleaning won’t fix the problem, you need us to come in and identify the leaks and repair your air conditioning vents.
Another time you will definitely need to have your vents cleaned is if you ever get an infestation of mice or rats. Rodents love using your air conditioning vents to hide. The bacteria in their urine and fecal matter can become airborne when your air conditioning system moves air (Yuck, we are sorry). Once the infestation has been eliminated, you will need to have all of your air vents cleaned. The last thing you want to get is an illness from breathing in particles from rodent droppings.
If you ever have a mold issue, you will need to have your air conditioning vents cleaned out in order to prevent more spores from being transported. Mold grows under wet and humid conditions. If water begins leaking into your air conditioning vents, it will lead to the formation of mold. If you have mold growing in your home or air conditioning vents, make certain you fix the water problem and get all of your vents cleaned.
