Who needs air duct Cleaning? YOU DO!

"WHY SHOULD I CLEAN MY DUCTS?"
Dirty air ducts have been identified as a major source of indoor air pollution, Your air duct system is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, mold, mildew, fungi, and other health threatening organisms.


"WILL MY HOUSE BE LESS DUSTY?"
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 A/C fan turns on, dust from the duct work gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home.


WILL THIS HELP MY ALLERGIES?
Perhaps. Most 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 in the air to aggravate people with respiratory illnesses.


I LIVE IN A NEW HOME DO I STILL NEED YOUR SERVICE?
Absolutely! Almost half of our work is done in homes that are less than 5 years old. During construction, the duct work is wide open and the air conditioner 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.


About Us

INDOOR AIR QUALITY HAS BECOME CRITICAL

For years, Americans have thought of air pollution solely as an outdoor problem. However, a recent study at Yale University has revealed that the air inside of 19 out of 20 homes was considerably more polluted than the outside air! The major cause of indoor air pollution is the dust, dirt, and moisture that accumulates within a home's air conditioning system and duct work. The moisture and debris commonly found in the HVAC systems provides an ideal breeding ground for mold, germs, fungi and other harmful microbes. Microbial contamination poses a major health risk to people who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments, as well as to those who do not. The American Lung Association and the E.P.A. say that dust particles and other allergens can aggravate allergies and cause breathing problems, lung damage, and pain, especially in the young and elderly. Typical symptoms range from fatigue, runny nose, nasal congestion, headaches, chills, fever, coughing, wheezing and can lead to more serious disease.


*PROPER CLEANING IS VERY IMPORTANT*

The cleaning process should be done by a professional using specialized equipment designed exclusively for air duct cleaning, such as the* HEPA filtration Rotobrush system.* We not only clean the ducts, we also sanitize with E.P.A. approved products. This kills bacteria, virus, mold spores, fungus, and dust mites. Air duct cleaning also saves the homeowner money by improved efficiency of the A/C unit. After cleaning, a high efficiency* electrostatic filter will collect up to 95% of the airborne contaminates before they can enter your air handling system. A residential air duct cleaning job takes just a few hours and does not make a mess in your house, and it is very affordable.

  1. "Fifty percent of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air." American College of Allergists.
  2. "Children, elderly people, and people with breathing problems, allergies, and lung diseases are particularly susceptible to disease-causing biological agents in the indoor air." EPA, Dept. of Consumer Affairs
  3. "If you have a ducted heating and cooling system, make sure you clean the ducts once a year." The Better Heating-Cooling Council
  4. "Indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air." EPA
  5. "Nine out of ten system failures are caused by dirt and dust." LCES
  6. Air duct cleaning may even be covered by your medical insurance.

A residential air duct cleaning job takes just a few hours and is a surprisingly clean and routine process. While making your home's air safer, duct cleaning can also reduce heating and cooling costs by allowing your system to operate more efficiently. Moreover, duct cleaning can cut maintenance costs because a clean system has fewer breakdowns.
