Indoor air is up to 70 times more polluted than outside air according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Standard, throw-away fiberglass filters remove less than 7% of the airborne contaminants that are drawn through the duct work of central air conditioning system via return registers. The remaining 93% of the harmful particles settle in the air ducts to recirculate in your house.
Now acknowledged as a major allergy/disease causing problem by leading medical authorities, doctors and allergists now prescribe air duct cleaning as a method to improve indoor air quality. Additionally, to prolong the life and improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, the Better Heating Cooling Council recommends cleaning your duct work.
These before and after photos show what your duct work looks like after a build-up of dust and dirt has been cleaned with our air duct cleaning equipment. Depending on your environmental conditions, you may want to have your ducts cleaned at regular intervals.
Additionally, air duct cleaning in a newly-built home is not uncommon. Contractors are notorious for sweeping depris into duct openings before the heating and air conditioning contractor has added the vents.
The crawl space is another area in your home where dust, dirt, mold, and other pollutants can be effecting the air quality in the home. A crawl space may be "out of sight, out of mind," but all the air in the crawl space eventually ends up in your living area.
We offer several services for crawl space problems: vapor barriers, complete encapsulation, mold clean up, and mold abatement. Give us a call to discuss your problem. We can come up with the right solution for you.
