Now we get into the more complex issues that can cause excess dust in your home, leaking air ducts. This is a hidden problem that requires expert experience to solve. Insulation and dust in attic can infiltrate the duct work through leaks and gaps and find its way into your home. Your homes duct work is made from many ducts connected together that have gaps and leaks many of these cannot be seen as they are hidden inside walls, crawlspaces, attics and chases. Over time these leaks will build up dust and debris in these areas and when you clean your air ducts the debris in these areas is left behind allowing it to be sucked back into the air ducts and your home through a venturi vacuum effect in fact the problem can be far worse now since a newly cleaned system air flows much stronger than before it increases the venturi effect and allows more of the debris that leaked into wall cavitys, attics crawlspaces and chases to flow back into your home.
