One of the more important services we offer is air duct cleaning and air quality inspection. Clean air ducts will make your heating and cooling systems run more efficiently, saving you even more money on your energy bills.
More importantly, clean air ducts are essential for the health of your family. Years of dust and dirt build up can create an environment for bacteria and mold. Mold and bacteria can cause minor to serious health problems, ranging from itching eyes, sneezing and coughing to serious allergic reactions, asthma attacks and even permanent lung damage. Many people do not know that mold may be growing in their air ducts and filters right now. This is why it is important to have your ducts regularly cleaned and your filters exchanged.
Mold spores are particularly dangerous. All they need are moisture, oxygen and a food source to survive. Central heating and cooling systems air ideal places for mold spores to live and grow. HVAC units constantly circulate mold spores found naturally in the air through parts of the system that often have dust on their surfaces.
Once a mold spore has embedded itself in dust — which provides the nutrients it needs — all a spore needs to survive is moisture. And that moisture can come from condensation produced by an air conditioning coil or from a faulty humidifier attached to the system.
