Ducts need cleaning

Q.  I own a home with electric air conditioning and forced-air heat. I have owned the home for five years. I have three dogs: two collies and a Boston Terrier.

I have not yet had the air ducts cleaned. I wonder if this is something that you recommend be performed on a regular basis. If so, how often? Also, can you recommend a qualified company to perform this work or advise as to how one would best go about finding one in their area?

A.  Yes, you should have the ducts cleaned. They collect a lot of dust — and dog hair — that can breed unpleasant bacteria and odors. You can find companies that do this type of work with an Internet search or your Yellow Pages under “Duct Cleaning.”
