Cleaning Services

What you can't see can hurt you.

Dirty air duct systems are a major source of poor indoor air quality. Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander, and human dander, along with other airborne contaminants, move through your duct system every time it’s used. Over time, these contaminants can build up inside the ductwork, transforming it into an ideal breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew, and other microbes. When the unit is turned on, contaminants can recirculate throughout your home, affecting the health and comfort of your family. Infants, children, elderly people, and those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory ailments are especially vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollutants.

Is duct cleaning a waste of money?

No—in fact, it should be a top priority for homeowner’s or commercial business owners.

As certified members of the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association), our technicians are trained to thoroughly clean all ductwork to address pollutants through source removal—recognized by industry experts as the best way to improve air quality as well as overall cleanliness within your home.

Common Air Duct Contaminants

Without consistent cleaning, dust, pollen, and other contaminants can build up over time and cause issues for you and your family. Below are some of the most common culprits our technicians have found in our many years servicing air ducts in our community.

Dust & Dust Mites

Dust contains more than 5,000 ingredients, including fibers, dander, soil, bacteria, molds, smoke residues, pesticides, dust mite allergens, skin flakes, and insect body parts. Dust mites are microscopic insects that are invisible to the naked eye—and even the cleanest home probably has dust mites. Feeding primarily on dead skin flakes, they can be found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bed covers, clothes, stuffed toys, and fabric-covered items. Even the particles left behind by dust mites may trigger asthma in individuals with dust mite allergies, and exposure to dust mites can cause asthma in children who have not previously exhibited any symptoms.

Pet Dander

Animal dander can be a significant cause of poor air quality, especially because it can persist in the environment long after a pet is removed from a home. It can also be transferred by people who spend time with animals outside of the home, bringing dander in on their clothes, shoes, and other items. The difficulty of removing pet dander means that allergic reactions may occur without an interaction with a pet. Symptoms may include asthma, allergic rhinitis, and allergic conjunctivitis.

Skin Flakes & Bacteria

Bacteria and skin flakes are biological contaminants, particles, and remnants of living organisms that can travel through the air. Typically invisible, bacteria promote poor indoor air quality and can become a major cause of sick days and doctor visits. Some can even damage surfaces in your home. Skin flakes, also known as dead skin cells, dander, and dust mites’ favorite food, are some of the most common contaminants in homes today. Humans naturally shed close to 8 lbs. of dead skin per year, which is why it’s no surprise that most of the material seen floating in a sunbeam is actually skin flakes.

Pollen

Many people consider themselves safe from allergic episodes triggered by pollen when inside their own home, but that may not be the case. While it is more common outdoors, this biological contaminant makes its way inside by way of vents, open doors and windows, and human transfer—not to mention the surge in popularity of indoor plant parenting and the allergens that come along with many species.
