Duct Cleaning

Why Duct Cleaning is Necessary

Duct cleaning is the first step in indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality lends itself to increased risk of allergy-related sickness, asthma, lung disease, and even lung cancer. Maintaining a sound indoor air quality is essential to your health and the health of your family and co-workers. A powerful and effective way to maximize the amount of clean, allergen-free air in your indoor environment is to get the ducts of your system cleaned.

Duct cleaning involves cleaning all the cooling, heating, and ventilation components of a forced air system. These components bring air into your residence or work environment, filter air through the space, humidify or heat the air, and release air to the outer environment.

Ducts in older buildings may accumulate mold in places that are not immediately visible and attract vermin, such as cockroaches and mice. Air infused with the droppings of vermin and excessive molds or moisture is air that poses a health risk. Cockroach droppings, in particular, are associated with asthmatic difficulties. When the moisture of the duct system is not properly maintained or regulated, excessive dirt and dust from the outside can accumulate and be circulated throughout your residence or workplace.

Duct cleaning removes mold, dust, debris from vermin, and other pollutants from your indoor air supply and prevents the accumulation of such toxins. If you live or work among allergy sufferers, duct cleaning can be a powerful tool for alleviating the symptoms of allergies for an extended period of time. Duct cleaning is an investment in your health and wellness.
