Air Duct Cleaning
- More reliable heating and air conditioning equipment needing less frequent repairs.
- Healthier indoor air quality with no viruses or mold spores for a reduced allergy potential.
- Cleaner indoor environment with much less dusting required.
- More efficient airflow for even more comfort and a lower operating cost.
Airborne contaminants are drawn through the duct work of the central air conditioning system via return air registers. Standard, throw-away fiberglass filters remove less than 7% of these particles, which means much of the rest settles in your air ducts.
Now acknowledged as a major allergy and disease causing problem by leading medical authorities, poor indoor air quality has prompted doctors and allergists to commonly prescribe a clean home furnace and air duct cleaning as a remedy.
If you question the need for air duct cleaning, take a look behind the return air grills in the HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system of your home. Many people have found that one glimpse into their air ducts provides all the evidence they need to initiate a thorough cleansing of the of the home furnace and ac system.
A residential air duct cleaning job takes just a few hours and is a surprisingly clean and routine process. While making your home’s indoor air quality safer, duct cleaning can also reduce heating and cooling costs by allowing your clean home furnace to operate more efficiently. Moreover, duct cleaning can cut maintenance costs because a clean system has fewer breakdowns.
If It’s in Your Air Ducts – It Can be in Your Lungs
Fungi and Bacteria in ventilation systems can contaminate indoor environments and cause a variety of health effects. Many organisms cause allergic-type reactions, such as headaches, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Some fungi and bacteria can cause respiratory infections, especially in immune-comprised individuals.
Consider these facts:
- Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Sick Building Syndrome, and Building-Related Illness are emerging as critical health, environmental, and legal issues throughout the world.
- Environmental Protection Agency studies show that indoor air may be as much as 100 times more polluted than the outside air.
- Improperly cleaned and maintained ventilation systems allow microbes to breed. This leads to a host of serious medical problems including: asthma, allergies, skin rash, fatigue, tuberculosis, and legionnaire’s diseases.
- The World Health Organization estimates that 1 in 3 buildings in America have sick building syndrome.
- 50% of ALL ILLNESSES are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. American College of Allergists.
