AIR DUCT CLEANING SERVICES
Clean Air Ducts Results In Cleaner Indoor Air
We spend a lot of time indoors; according to the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), most people spend 90% of their time indoors. The more time people spend indoors, the more sensitive they become to indoor air pollutants like dust, dust mites, bacteria, and microorganisms that come into the home through air ducts. Cleaning dirty air ducts brings relief to people who suffer from indoor allergens. Our customers have reported this to us for years, and we’ve certainly noticed this ourselves after cleaning the ducts in our own homes.
During the summer, people stay inside for longer periods of time as it becomes more uncomfortable outside. But indoor air can be as dirty, or dirtier, than outside air.

Dirty air can aggravate other problems like allergies, chronic bronchitis, and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder), a lung disease that may affect as many as 24 million Americans according to the American Lung Association. Add in other contaminants like dander from pets, and pollen, dust, and pollution that flow in and out whenever you open a door or window, and the problems can compound.

We clean all supply air ducts and return ducts, using stiff bristle brushes that spin against the debris stuck inside. Our technicians bring a supply of brushes in different sizes so that each return and supply register is properly cleaned with an appropriate size brush.
Once inside the smaller supply ducts, these brushes spin and
