Will my house be less dusty, after you clean the air ducts?
Yes, the inside of your duct work is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the duct work gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home.
Will air duct cleaning help my allergies?
Many people are allergic to dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in duct work. Remove the debris and you remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing particulate debris in your ducts, there are less dust particles and potential allergens in the air to aggravate those with respiratory illnesses.
I live in a new home. Do I still need your service?
Absolutely! Up to 50% of air duct system cleaning is done in homes that are less than five years old. During construction, the duct work is wide open and the air handler is running many times without a filter. During this time, construction debris such as pieces of plaster, drywall, wood, dust, insects and insulation, are accumulated in the duct work.
