How Do My Ducts Get So Dirty?


You may consider yourself a clean person and that you keep your home likewise. Even if you dust and clean regularly, it is inevitable that your ducts will get dirty. There are many reasons why your ducts get dirty and debris builds up in them. Dust builds up in your home, even if you keep up with it. Think about how much would build up over months or years if you did not dust. Dust is not the only culprit that can cause build up; mold, pollen and dander can make your ducts dirty. The debris will get into your home and sucked into your ductwork. It will settle in your ducts and will build up over time making your ducts blocked up.
