Whether there’s debris in the ducts as a result of remodeling or you just moved in to an older home, professional duct cleaning should make it on your to-do list to ensure you’re not circulating dirty air throughout your home.

So how will you know when the time is right to schedule duct cleaning? There are a few significant signs that can give you a better indication of the right time to get your ducts cleaned. If your ducts show any of these signs, be sure to check with AW Heating & Air Conditioning in Lincoln about getting your ducts cleaned.
