return air duct work


I get alot of lint and dust on the grills on return ducts,i keep filters change regular and was wondering if i would use a strong blower on the front of them to blow the dust down to filter. would this help or hurt? thanks so much charter

Just dust it off. It won't make it to the filter, depending how far the duct runs, and how many turns it has.
