Air Duct Cleaning
The air duct system of your home functions as the respiratory system. Contaminants such as dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander and other airborne organisms are continually pulled into the duct system. Over time they build up inside the air ducts, lowering the air quality and may even cause allergic reactions and/or other respiratory issues for members of the home. While we might worry about the rising levels of pollution outside, we often forget about the air we breathe most - indoors.

How important is it to have my air ducts cleaned?
VERY IMPORTANT! Whether you are a homeowner or a tenant, every one relies their heating and cooling systems to keep them warm during the frosty winters and cool during the hot and humid summers. As the system is working hard to keep your home comfortable, its also pulling in airborne particles such as dust, pet dander, bacteria, allergens, pollen, and dust mites. Over time these particles combine together on the duct surface and inside the furnace. This build up of contaminants leads to restriction of the air flow, adding stress on the furnace and its components. This stress reduces the life time of your furnace. Causing the need for costly repair or even a full replacement of the furnace.
When the furnace runs with dirty ducts the contaminates lining the ducts are picked up into the air flow and carried back out into your home reducing the quality of your home's air.
Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.
According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) " When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn't have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost - effectiveness."
To cover all aspects of maintaining the cleanliness of your duct system, we offer a variety of cleaning packages to fit your needs.
The Cleaning Process
During the cleaning, the HVAC unit is placed under negative pressure (with a HEPA filter vacuum) to prevent the spread of contaminates through your home. Using portable equipment, our technicians go to each supply vent in your home putting positive pressure to dislodge dust and debris into the air stream that the HEPA vacuum produces. This portable equipment allows us to get the hard to reach areas of your duct system.
We offer an organic deodorizer to rid your system of any standing odors, such as cigarette smoke, animal odor, or even the odors of every day cooking. This deodorizer is included in our cleaning packages.
We are proud of our work and provide visual proof of YOUR duct system upon request.
