Do you know when is the worse allergy season in Florida? Trees actually can start pollinating in mid-January and then February through April is the highest for allergy season. This gives you two options for deciding when to schedule your next AC duct cleaning.
The first is that you can get a baseline AC Duct Cleaning. This will give you a good idea on the type of debris that gets into your ducts next time you clean. If getting one now starts you and the year off with clean ducts, then the next one will give you an accurate picture of how often you need to get an AC duct cleaning. We typically recommend getting a cleaning every two years. If you go with this recommendation, then you’ll know if the two years is a good time frame or if you should change to every year. If someone in your house starts to have respiratory issues, you’ll also know when the start period was to when the issues start showing up.
On the other hand, if someone in your house has severe allergies or respiratory issues, then you may want to get an AC duct cleaning as soon as allergy season lessens in May. Remember that Florida may have some allergy issues year-round. However, you will get the majority of allergy-induced pollen out of your ducts in you to get your AC duct cleaning in May. And while you may think you clean your house enough to avoid pollen from getting into your air ducts, pollen usually enters the house through clothes, hair, pets, and shoes. Also, the mere act of cleaning – dusting, vacuuming and sweeping can kick up dust that will end up in your air duct system.
For those with allergies or other respiratory issues, planning AC duct cleaning around allergy seasons can be essential. Contact TIES 360 to schedule your next AC duct cleaning.
