Maintaining of Air Return Vents

After you have installed your cold air return vents, it’s easy to forget about them and just get on with life. STOP! In order for your rooms to continue breathing freely with the ventilation that has been achieved by fitting these cold air return vents, you will need to mark a little regular maintenance into your calendar. Don’t worry, upkeep is a quick and simple procedure but important nonetheless. If there’s not enough outdoor air entering a home, pollutants can sometimes accumulate to levels that can pose health and comfort problems indoors, so you can see the importance of keeping the apertures and ventilation grilles clear so that they can breathe freely.

You’ll be peased to know that this is not a difficult job. Unscrew the air vent from the wall and wipe over with a damp rag until clean. (You might want to use a toothbrush to get in between the slats) Finally, vacuum the duct behind the air vent to finish the job and reattach the parts. That’s it, the cold air return vent is clean now.
