I think a lot of dust got sucked into my ceiling ducts. I can clean one day and write my name in the dust the next day. What do you recommend?


My article is intended to make things "better" for homeowners who may not be able to afford a pro cleaning or just to perform upkeep and improve their air quality. Ceiling ducts are often connected to flexible ducting so the theory is the same, but you have to be careful not to tear the interior liner. So, carefully do the best you can but if you want every nook and cranny and can afford it, hire a pro. (Don't forget that keeping your fan running helps clean your air and if you use a pleated filter, you can do even better. Maybe have to change it more often, but it's definitely worth it. Did I say run the fan? I always tell people this and they don't listen. I guess it goes against our instincts or something.)
