Regularly cleaning the ducts throughout your home helps remove particles and contaminants circulating the air, such as dust, debris and even mould.
The certified technicians at Mersey Heating & Air offer thorough duct cleaning services to help:
It’s generally recommended that homeowners have their ducts cleaned every two years.
What are the benefits of duct cleaning?
Over time, as your HVAC system is used season after season, contaminants like dust, mold and mildew can build up in your air duct system. These buildups can also cause unpleasant smells to permeate your home.
That’s not ideal for your health or home comfort.
The benefits of having your ducts cleaned means you can:
Does duct cleaning remove mold?
Mold is one of the nastier things that can build up in your air ducts, and a thorough cleaning can help remove it.
Mold can be particularly dangerous for people to breathe in and an infestation of this unfriendly fungus can grow worse if not treated; a duct cleaning solution from the pros at Mersey will ensure that any mold in your air ducts is safely extracted.
Will duct cleaning help allergies?
Yes, duct cleaning can help with certain allergy symptoms you’re experiencing in your home.
Much of the dust and contaminants that build up in your air ducts can irritate allergy symptoms and make them worse.
Duct cleaning can reduce the level of these contaminants to help reduce allergy symptoms and allow you to breathe easier.
Will cleaning the ducts in my house make me sick?
The actual act of duct cleaning is unlikely to make you sick.
On the other hand, allowing contaminants to build up in your ducts over time, however, can cause health risks, as they have an adverse effect on the air you’re breathing indoors.
We do recommend you do not attempt to clean your home’s ducts yourself; this is a job best left to professionals with the right equipment.
Will duct cleaning help improve airflow/HVAC performance?
Yes: cleaning your ducts can help improve their airflow and the overall performance of your HVAC system.
While the primary concern with duct cleaning is to ensure the air that’s moving through them and into your home is free of dangerous contaminants and healthy to breathe, it can also help increase the quality of your heating & air conditioning system for maximized home comfort all year long.
How long will duct cleaning take?
Duct cleaning usually takes between 4 and 6 hours.
How long it takes exactly will vary depending on the size of your home, as larger homes have more ducts.
The length of time it takes will also depend on when your home’s ducts were last cleaned and how much debris needs to be removed.
How often should I have my ducts cleaned?
Mwesey recommends you have your ducts cleaned every two years.
A thorough duct cleaning will eliminate the buildup of debris and can remove potentially harmful contaminants like allergens and mold.
If you’re experiencing increased allergy symptoms or an unpleasant smell coming from your ducts, a duct cleaning could help.
Should I try to clean my own ducts?
No. We do not recommend you attempt to clean your home’s ducts yourself; this is a job best left to professionals with the right equipment.

“Just had a new Lennox Elite two stage furnace and air conditioner installed today. This was a deal through Costco. Good discounts and a competitive price, not the lowest, but the service and the overall install and product were excellent. I would highly recommend Mersey Heating if you’re looking for a top notch install with a great line of products and service.”
“Mersey has excellent products and wonderful service. We had them install our furnace and air conditioning last year and have marveled at their service as well. Nick was our technician today and as with our other service people, gave us prompt, clear (explained everything he was doing), considerate service. 5 stars all the way!”
“Mersey called to have my air conditioner inspected after one year of installation. This was to ensure that the unit was performing as it was to be. I requested Nick to come out as I had used him previously. He was truly polite and courteous and addressed all of my concerns with great patience. He performed a thorough and complete check of the unit paying attention to all detail as I requested. He also followed proper covid-19 protocols respecting my home. Nick really is top drawer and I will be requesting him once again in the future.”
