DUCT CLEANING SERVICES

WHY CLEAN YOUR AIR DUCTS?

  • If they haven’t been cleaned in the last 5 years, chances are they are dirty due to everyday living conditions. In a typical size home, up to 40 pounds of dust can accumulate in one year.

  • Pollutants such as dander, dust and chemicals accumulate in the air duct and circulate at least 5-7 times a day.

  • Families with individuals living with asthmatic or other respiratory or health issues will benefit greatly from cleaner air. Unclean air ducts may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

  • The air you breathe indoors is 75% more polluted than the air outdoors.

  • According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. . As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.

  • Many times rodents like rats, mice, roaches and insects live undetected in attic spaces and within ductwork. The infestation caused by these vermin and their associated waste, contain harmful contaminants that need to be removed. Homes that have had issues with insects, roaches or rodents should seek cleaning solutions.

  • Mold, fungus and other germs infected in the ductwork can be neutralized with the antimicrobial solution we have that will also control and prevent future build up.

  • Ducts can be clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from the supply registers. Whatever debris is not released and eventually vacuumed or caught in the air filter of the air handler, will be left in the duct clogging the passage way of the air and will ultimately decrease the overall air flow.

  • If your home has been remodeled – especially if there was mold, lead paint removal, or significant dust – your ductwork may need to be cleaned. Ducts should be sealed off during home renovations; but if they weren’t, dangerous dust and debris may become lodged inside the ductwork.

  • Above everything else, for this service is critical to ensure the cleaning service is done correctly without damaging of existing ducts or causing a mess in the home.
