Construction and remodeling produces a great deal of sawdust and other particulate matter that settles in your air ducts and HVAC system. For that reason, it is always recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned after construction or remodeling.

Still Not Sure?

If you are still not sure it is time for air duct cleaning, try performing a visual inspection yourself. Remove two or three registers at different location in you home shine a light inside and take a peek or take a picture.
