The ducts in our houses must be cleaned thoroughly, they’re responsible for the air we breathe in our houses. Maintenance should be done from time to time to ensure the smooth functioning and good quality air in the premises. To know the condition of your air duct, you can easily check. Open the front panel cover of your duct vent and pluck it out, now use a torch to look inside and see whether there’s a sign of any foreign contaminant, dust or debris. Commonly if your ducts are uncleaned, you will found a huge pile of dust and debris, worst case there will be droppings of a mouse, spider webs and all the mess. On the other hand, if the duct is cleaned there will be nothing except a small layer of dust, if not maintained properly this layer of dust turns thick and make the duct dirty.

Therefore, the amount of dust on the air vent filter and register is directly proportional to the dust inside.
