Spring Cleaning Means Clean Air Ducts

Your home is meant to protect you from the Minnesota winters and while it’s easy to see how it can protect you from the weather, there’s a component of your home that’s equally important for protecting you from the smaller things outdoors. Your air duct system, the ducts and vents that draw in and filter outside air, is responsible for keeping away harmful and unwanted allergens as well as contaminants. Without this system, you and anyone within your home would be exposed to a variety of things that can drive your senses crazy or even make you sick.


This spring is the perfect time to get your air ducts cleaned for this exact reason, especially since spring is the season of outdoor allergies as pollen fills the air and the temperature fluctuates. You don’t want to trade your seasonal allergies for poor indoor air quality. Your air ducts are home to dust, dirt, mold, bacteria, flakes of skin, and other potential allergens. These contaminants are hazardous when released into the atmosphere of your home, causing indoor air pollution and environmental sensitivity.  The air ducts require a recommended cleaning every 3-5 years to reduce these airborne contaminants and to ensure the best air quality possible in your home.

Here are just a few of the many benefits from adding air ducts to your spring cleaning list:


  • Creates a cleaner and healthier living environment
  • Reduces allergens and irritants
  • Helps your family breathe easier
  • Removal of unpleasant smells and odors
  • Improves air flow & HVAC efficiency


Air duct cleaning is typically not the largest priority for many home owners, but as you can see, there are many valuable benefits to having air duct maintenance and cleaning services performed in your home this spring. If you’re not sure whether the air ducts in your home need to be cleaned, give Finken a call at 1-877-FINKENS.
