Ducts also attract mold and if mold infests your duct system you have a problem. Air vent cleaning will remove any mold infestation. Vermin also love to live in ducts and air duct cleaning can get rid of such an infestation. It also seems to make sense that if your vents are clogged and your ducts are dirty that your overall AC system will be less efficient. The EPA recommends that vent and ducts be cleaned when needed and not necessarily on a routine basis.

However, if you or members of your family suddenly suffer from unexplained symptoms, it will be a good idea to have a closer look at your air vents and ducts.
