Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Book a Vent Cleaning!

Vents…we’ve all got them, you walk by them many times a day but do you ever stop, bend over, take the cover off and check out what’s lurking inside? Go do that…right now…what did you see? It’s likely that they were either totally fine OR waaay worse than you expected! If you’re like most people it was the second option! It could be time to book a vent cleaning and home cleaning in Ottawa!



Particles from normal, everyday living accumulate over time in your vents. These particles get there from us, from our pets and if you’re a parent of young kids, they likely have slid a few additions in there without you knowing (think small toys, coins, buttons, whatever they think will make a cool sound when it hits the bottom!).


So why should you clean out those vents? When is the best time to clean them? Should everyone clean their vents regularly? Read on my friends and you will find the answers!


Top 3 Reasons to Book a Vent Cleaning:


  1. Remove Blockages: Sometimes, over time, your vents can get clogged with dust and debris. Cleaning vents removes those blockages so the air can get through just a little easier! Think about blowing air through a straw, it’s easier to do if there’s nothing in the straw! Vent cleaning gives you an empty straw.


  1. Removes Unpleasant Smells: Pet dander, fur, skin cells, scents from cooking, these are just a few of the things that get trapped in your vents. With heating or cooling systems kicking on an average of 5-7 times per day, all of that gets distributed throughout the air. Cleaning your vents takes all of that away!


  1. Improves Air Flow & Quality: Think about our straw example again; if you were trying to blow air through an empty straw or a straw filled with chocolate milkshake, which would be easier? Removing what’s inside the vents allows air to flow through more easily. Also, if the air doesn’t have to pass through all of that junk, it won’t pick up any of the particles within it!


When to Clean Your Vents:

  • Post-construction/renovation.
  • Before selling/after buying.
  • If it’s clogged with dust/debris.
  • If you see particles blowing out of the vents.
  • When changing from A/C to heating.
  • If you suspect an infestation of any kind.

Should you clean vents regularly? No, that’s not necessary! Check the list above and if any of those situations apply to you then consider getting those vents cleaned! If not, then your vents are good my friend!

Here’s a good rule to go by: if your vents look dirty…they probably are!
