Precautions to take:
Restrict and reduce indoor air pollutants from entering your space.
It sounds slightly complex, but don’t worry. There’s an easy way to get this done. You can start by installing highly efficient air filters in your HVAC system! Doing this will keep air pollutants from depositing into your air ducts and ruining the quality of your air — overall keeping your air close to perfect.
Put your vacuum cleaner to good use.
Try vacuuming at least once a week. Maybe more, depending on how much foot traffic you have in your home or office. If you keep up with vacuuming, you’ll be able to suck up any debris that would eventually make its way into your HVAC system.
Keep excess moisture away.
Moisture and air ducts should never come into play together. The coupling can lead to serious problems like mold or even debris clumping together and preventing more airflow. Our advice is to exercise caution and ensure that you frequently check for leaks or poor insulation.
On that same note, you might want to check all the seals on your ductwork to make sure they’re all intact!
