I Decided to Clean My Air Ducts Myself

The air in my house has been a little stinky, as well as I’ve attributed it to my air ducts, i have a ton of air fresheners scattered throughout the house as well as I’ve cleaned every surface, however the stink still lingers.

I suppose the stink is at its worst when the HVAC system is pushing air through my air vents, which is why I’ve decided to scrub my air ducts.

I considered hiring a professional, however after looking into the prices, I feel like it’s something I can handle myself. I’m not opposed to cleaning a good mess. I did a little research on cleaning air ducts, as well as it seems easy enough, and thankfully, the internet gave me with step-by-step directions. The first thing I had to do was detach the air duct covers, which was self-explanatory enough. Then, I had to block the supply vents with a towel as well as switch my temperature control to the fan setting… Next, I began cleaning the air duct by scrubbing the dust as well as debri from within. I had to put on a mask for this step, because the dust was overwhelming as well as it made me sick to suppose that I was breathing in the air traveling through. The final step was to scrub the supply as well as return registers. Overall, I thought the process of cleaning my air ducts was easy, however I wasn’t expecting the mess to be quite so large. I had to contain the dust as well as debri from the air duct into the trash before it spread throughout the house. I suppose I’ll spend money someone next time.
