Learn the Facts - Then Take Steps to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Learn what doctors, government agencies, and experts in the field have to say about indoor air quality.
“Allergies are a major cause of illness in the United States. As many as 50 million people - about one in five - have allergies.” - American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology
Microbial contamination poses a major health threat to people who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments.
“Children, elderly people and people with breathing problems, allergies and lung diseases are particularly susceptible to disease-causing biological agents in the indoor air.” - Environmental Protection Agency
The moisture and debris commonly found in HVAC systems provides an ideal breeding ground for mold, germs, fungi and other harmful microbes.
“Indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outside air.”-Environmental Protection Agency
Now acknowledged as a major allergy and disease causing problem by leading medical authorities, poor indoor air quality has prompted doctors and allergists to prescribe air duct cleaning as a remedy. Air duct cleaning improves indoor air quality.
“Ducted heating and cooling systems are recommended to be cleaned.” - Better Heating Cooling Council
Airborne contaminants are drawn through the duct work of central air conditioning system via return registers. Standard, throw-away fiberglass filters remove less than 7% of these particles. The remaining particles settle in the air ducts, making air duct cleaning a priority.
"90% of HVAC system failures are caused by dirt and dust." - LCES
Air duct cleaning cuts maintenance costs because a clean system has fewer breakdowns. Air duct cleaning can also reduce heating and cooling costs by allowing your system to operate more efficiently.
