Signs your should consider duct cleaning

Duct cleaning offers many benefits to both you and your home. However, beyond the usual telltale signs that it is time to clean your ductwork, such as an increase in the dust around the home, many other signs can indicate it’s time for a duct cleaning.

Here we share some of those signs. This way, you’ll know when to book your duct cleaning in Calgary with Fagnan’s Furnace Service!


Several different smells can come from your ductwork. If you smell something musty or mouldy coming from your HVAC system, it’s time to call your HVAC contractor. We can assess your ducts and determine if you have any mould.

What causes it? Moisture can get trapped inside your ductwork, which causes mould and that musty, damp smell. But don’t wait on this one! Even a little bit of mould growth will get worse over time. Mould can harm your health, especially those who have asthma or other respiratory illnesses.

At Fagnan’s Furnace Service, we are here to clean your ductwork, get rid of mould and ensure the best air quality within your home!

Insects and mouse droppings

Gross! When you come across insect bodies or rodent droppings in ductwork, it’s time to give your HVAC contractor a call. Schedule a duct cleaning ASAP to rid your home of this issue. When you have this type of debris in your ducts, you’re also susceptible to breathing in any by-products. Unfortunately, droppings and insect bodies could also indicate you have insects or mice nesting in your air ducts.

Call Fagnan’s Furnace Service to schedule a duct cleaning. This way, you can breathe easy (no pun intended), knowing your ducts are clean and not exposing you to any airborne pathogens from this type of debris.

Increased allergies and illnesses

If you notice a sudden uptake in the allergy symptoms you or others in your house are experiencing, cleaning your ductwork’s a great idea. Allergies and allergy-related illnesses are often the result of dirty ducts.

If you’ve researched and still can’t explain the increase in symptoms like runny noses and sore throats, call us! We can inspect and clean your furnace and ducts to help reduce allergy-related symptoms.
