One way to do this is by regularly inspecting your vents and removing any visible blockages. You can also use a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment to gently suction out any dust or debris that may be stuck inside.

If you have vents that are difficult to access, consider hiring a professional cleaning service to help with maintenance. Properly functioning vents will help to improve air quality and prevent excess moisture, which can lead to water damage and mold growth. By taking a few simple steps to keep your home vents clear, you can help ensure the overall health and safety of your home
