Your air ducts are a common breeding ground for bacteria, mold, fungi, and many other allergens. By having your air ducts cleaned by a professional, you can protect your family from harmful dust and other allergens.

Air duct system are most commonly located in the basement of the home.

We love our pets, but their shedding can sometimes lead us to want to pull out our own hair. Animal fur gets trapped in the vents and builds up living germs, fungus, and allergy-causing bacteria. Pet dander may even still exist from past homeowners and will cause reactions for people with allergies. This can also hinder the efficiency of the HVAC system. Clumps of hair and dander will slow down airflow for the entire system.
Do you ever feel like you’re constantly dusting only to have the dust back the very next day? The reason the dust continues to flow and settle on the surfaces of your house, is most likely that your air ducts haven’t been cleaned properly in a while. Homes built today will have drywall dust and construction debris in the duct-work before the owner even moves in.
Over the years, dust, hair, pet dander, and other pollutants in the duct-work will hinder an HVAC system’s airflow. A proper cleaning by a professional technician will help to remove any buildup and get the proper airflow needed to run the system efficiently.
When dirt and debris are removed from the duct-work, the fans and motors that power a furnace no longer need to work as hard to distribute air. Advising people to routinely get their air ducts inspected and serviced is important. Not only does this properly maintain a home, but it keeps the quality of indoor air as pure as possible.
