With indoor air quality and air pollution becoming a growing concern, most homeowners and business owners are still not aware of the health hazards breathing dirty air can cause. Without inspection and cleaning, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that can be harmful to you and your family’s health! Over several years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health.
Absolutely! Up to 50% of air duct system cleaning is done in homes that are less than five years old. During construction, the home's duct work is wide open and the air handler is running many times without an air filter. During this time, construction debris such as pieces of plaster, drywall, wood, dust, insects and insulation, are accumulated in the duct work.
Yes, the inside of your home's duct work is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the heater or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the duct work gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home, settling on furniture and floors.
Everyone has good intentions when it comes to changing their furnace filters, but sometimes life gets in the way and the air filter sits in the furnace collecting dust for much longer than recommended. Replacing a dirty, clogged air filter with a clean new one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 10%! In turn, keeping energy costs down while giving you the peace of mind your system will last for years to come.
Many people are allergic to dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in residential and commercial duct work. Remove the debris and you remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing particulate debris in your vents, there are less dust particles and potential allergens in the air to aggravate those with respiratory illnesses.
The equipment we use to clean the air ducts is effective in all types of air duct or air vent construction, including flex duct, round metal ducts, square metal ducts and fiberboard. It can easily accommodate right angle turns and multiple bends found in most types of duct systems.
Ensuring your filter is replaced regularly goes a long way towards keeping your indoor air clean and your heating and cooling system running efficiently. Build up from dust and debris can cause your filter to become clogged which may result in allergens polluting your home and decreasing the efficiency of your HVAC system.
