PORTLAND – You’ve owned rental Portland Oregon Rental Properties for years, and are enjoying the benefits of rental property but there’s a problem, you’ve never cleaned the air ducts in your rentals and dirty air ducts are like having a potential problem that’s waiting to happen.
If you’ve never thought about cleaning the air ducts in your rentals before here’s why this is important.
Why Air Duct Cleaning Is Important
Besides the obvious health benefits for your tenants which come from air duct cleaning, this is an important task that you should get done this year because of the following reasons:
- Cleaning your air ducts will remove mold or dust from the ducts.
- A complete cleaning of your air ducts will also remove pests and other vermin which may be entering your Portland Oregon Rental property via the air ducts.
- An air duct cleaning will also help your HVAC system to function better plus boost fan circulation.
When to Clean Air Ducts
Now is the best time to clean air ducts in Portland Oregon Rentals since we can expect beautiful warm weather across Portland in the coming months.
Once you’ve cleaned the air ducts in each of your Portland Rental Properties it’s best to set a reminder in your calendar to have them cleaned at least every 3 years, or if a prior tenant has moved out of the rental property and they smoked or had pets with fur, hair or dander.
Depending on the age and condition of your air ducts or HVAC system it should cost between $300 and $500 for a complete air duct cleaning.
Most duct cleaning jobs take at least 3 hours if you want to have confidence that the air ducts in your rental property have been professionally cleaned.
