What is Air Duct Cleaning?
Duct cleaning is the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.
If not properly installed, maintained, and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth are released into the home’s living space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people when they are exposed to them. Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits.
Dirt, mold, bugs, mites, and other “stuff” are all living in your duct system. We can get rid of it all with a whole-house duct cleaning. Duct cleaning can improve your health and safety by eliminating molds, bacteria and germs from source and recirculated air, keeping your entire home cleaner and healthier. You and your family can breathe easier with duct
