WHY CLEAN YOUR DUCTS?


Not many people would be sorry to say goodbye to insects, rodents, dust mites, bacteria, mold, pollen, dead skin, animal dander and other debris trapped in their heating and air conditioning duct system. Our customers are always amazed to discover the amount of dust and debris that we remove from their air duct system. They are also always glad they made the decision to have their air ducts cleaned.

Most of us have seen dust collect in inaccessable places in our homes. If you forget to vacuum under your bed for a few weeks you will find large accumulations of dust or "dust bunnies". Can you imagine what you'l find in an air duct system that has not been cleaned in 5, 10, or 20 years?

The biological contaminants listed in the first paragraph can aggravate allergies, asthma, and sinus conditions. They can also cause sore throat, coughing, headache, and rashes.

If you move into a previously owned home you could be breathing someone elses pollutants. Most people think a new home is a clean home. It is highly unlikely as construction crews frequently drop cigarette butts, sawdust, soda cans, and more debris into your ducts during construction.

Indoor Air Pollution is one risk you can do something about.
