The air blowing through your vents might not be as clean as you think. Like every other surface in your home, vents attract dust. When forced air blows through your registers, the dust comes with it, aggravating allergies or other respiratory problems. Improve your air quality by removing the vent covers and vacuuming the grates. If they’re especially dirty, try rinsing them with mild soap and water. While the covers dry, turn your attention to the ducts. Secure an attachment to the end of your vacuum hose, then lower into the vent, making sure to reach the corners where dirt collects.
