Help improve the air in your home with air duct cleaning
With indoor air quality becoming a growing concern, most homeowners are still not aware of the level of pollution inside of their home.
The Environmental Protection Agency has ranked poor indoor air pollution among the top 5 risks for public health multiple years in a row. Without even knowing, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful for you and your family to breathe. Each time your heating and cooling system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen and bacteria throughout the air inside your home.
How can you improve your indoor air?
More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. According to Total Health and Better Health magazine, 1 out of 4 people who suffer from allergies, do so, due to the fungi and bacteria in the air duct system.
How important is it that I get my air duct system cleaned?
Everyone relies heavily on their heating and cooling system to keep them warm and cool. Even with regular use a heating and cooling system can trap a lot of unhealthy pollutants inside it. A lot of these are dangerous to your health! Here are some ways you can help improve your indoor air.
- Improve ventilation- make sure your duct system is properly sealed! Leaky duct work pulls air from all over, potentially bringing in more contaminants.
- Make sure your air filter is clean- A dirty air filter not only makes your system work harder it also can’t block out the contaminants from getting into your system
- Cut back on the air contaminants- Avoid harsh chemical air fresheners and cleaning products!

Will air duct cleaning help my allergies?
Many people are allergic to dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in duct work. Remove the debris and you remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing particulate debris in your ducts, there are less dust particles and potential allergens in the air to aggravate those with respiratory illnesses.
I live in a new home, will your services still benefit me?
Absolutely! Up to 50% of air duct system cleaning is done in homes that are less than five years old. During construction, the duct work is wide open and the air handler is running many times without a filter. During this time, construction debris such as pieces of plaster, drywall, wood, dust, insects and insulation, are accumulated in the duct work.
Will my house be less dusty after you clean my ducts?
Yes, the inside of your duct work is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the duct work gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home.
