Did you know that on average, 90% of Americans’ lives are spent indoors? Would you believe there is between 2-5% more pollutants indoors than outdoors? According to research by the National Air Duct Cleaning Association, these statements are true!
Air duct cleaning is one of the most important components to improving overall indoor air quality. Dust, debris, allergens, pet dander, mold and fungi all become trapped within your home or businesses’ HVAC system. These particles can significantly affect overall health and wellness when inhaled on a regular basis.
How Does Air Duct Cleaning Work?
Professional air duct cleaning technicians use a proven, powerful procedure to effectively clean the air ducts and ventilation systems by placing the system under negative pressure, through the use of a specialized, powerful vacuum. While the vacuum draws air through the system, devices are inserted into the ducts to dislodge any debris that might be stuck to interior surfaces. The debris can then travel down the ducts to the vacuum, which removes it from the system and the home/business.
Why Should I Get My Air Ducts professionally Cleaned?
- Prevent Health Issues-The overall health and well-being of your family or employees can be directly affected by the indoor air they breathe in. Harmful contaminants floating through the HVAC system can be attributed to asthma, allergies, and other respiratory conditions
- Eliminate Foul Odors-Air fresheners only mask the smell of mold and bacteria that naturally build up within the HVAC system. Proper, regular cleaning eliminates the source of these odors
- Cleanliness-on average, 15 pounds or more of debris are removed from a typical home HVAC system during professional air duct cleaning. Every time the system is run, this massive amount of contaminants are circulated throughout your home or business. In an effort to improve cleanliness, cleaning the HVAC system should be a routine maintenance procedure
