Dirty air isn’t doing our health any favors. About 8% of adults in the US have hay fever, about 13% have sinusitis, and 8.8 million children have a skin allergy each year. While there isn’t much you can do to immediately improve the quality of the air outdoors, you can make steps to keep your indoor air clean. One of these steps is regular air duct cleaning.

Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
HVAC systems work by continually recycling the air in your home through a series of ducts. In the process of taking in the air, they also take in a lot of the dust, dander, pollen, dead skin, and other debris in the air. Much of this is luckily caught by your HVAC system filter (remember to change your filter regularly!). However, a lot gets stuck inside of the air ducts, and eventually gets blown back into your home.
Aside from potentially improving your respiratory and skin health, keeping your air ducts clean can reduce the amount of dust in your home, so you don’t always have that layer of dust coating your furniture.
We Scrub Your Air Ducts Clean
Don’t trust those air duct cleaning companies which promise to clean your entire HVAC system for $49.99. They basically just vacuum the part of your air ducts near the register, which won’t make much of a difference. In some cases, these companies can worsen the problem by loosening the dust from the sides of the air ducts so it comes flying into your home the next time you turn on your AC!
We make sure your air ducts are completely clean using a scrubbing method. Special HEPA vacuum tubes are put into the air ducts. The snake-like tubes have scrub brushes on their tips. The brushes rotate to get dust off the walls of your air ducts. We access your air ducts through multiple ports to make sure every inch of the ducting is clean. Any insulation or sealing which needed to be removed for access is always put back.
Safety is Our Top Priority
There are a lot of potential health hazards which could be lurking in your air ducts. We make safety our top priority. All of our technicians have been trained by the IICRC in safety protocols and wear appropriate gear, such as respirators. Our methods loosen dust from the air ducts without allowing it to flow backwards out of the ducts and into your home. For large commercial air ducts, we can use negative pressure to keep debris from escaping.
Cleaning Mold from Air Ducts
Mold in air ducts is an especially pressing concern and should only be cleaned by professionals. Never try to clean mold yourself as the spores are often toxic. Our technicians are IICRC Certified in mold mitigation. We use biocides and sporicides to kill mold and their spores. If moisture levels are kept safe, then the mold will not return.
