Air Duct Cleaning
Why Should You Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned?
Eventually, everything in your home will need to be cleaned at some point. Your air conditioners ductwork is no exception. The decision to clean your ducts can be one of the healthiest choices you can make. Let’s face it; indoor air quality is important, and those who suffer from respiratory ailments such as allergies and asthma, especially children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollutants.
Our duct cleaners are trained to check for the types of dirt, dust, pollen, and animal dander that gets pulled into and recirculated throughout your home’s air conditioning system. Over time, these airborne contaminants can build up inside your ductwork creating a perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew, bacteria, and fungus. Having a clean well-maintained heating and cooling system is vital to maintaining a comfortable and healthy living environment. Additionally, clean (HVAC) heating ventilation and air conditioning systems operate more efficiently than dirty ones improving not only the indoor air quality but often result in lower utility bills.
Industry standards set by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommend having your ductwork inspected for cleanliness every two or three years with regular cleanings performed on average every five to seven years. Using the push-pull method recommended by the NADCA this non-contact cleaning process utilizes compressed air, and powerful vacuums to sweep the indoor air pollutants from the ductwork and into a self-contained HEPA filtration system. Our certified duct cleaning technicians have the tools, training, and experience necessary to identify and remove these harmful contaminants from your home. Ultimately, providing you and your family with a cleaner, healthier, safer, living environment.
