WHY CLEAN DUCTS
Cleaner house and less house cleaning. Dust circulates around the house and eventually lands on your furniture, drapes, walls and floors.
More efficient furnace operation, fewer breakdowns and longer life of the furnace. 9 out of 10 systems failures are due to dust and dirt.
Cleaner air in the living environment. The air in everyone’s home contains multiple billions of small particles like pollen particles, dust mites, animal dander, bacteria, viruses, etc. 30% of all Canadians are effected by some type of allergies. Dust mites are a major cause of allergic reactions in the home.
Your duct system is the respiratory system of your home or office! When it becomes contaminated with dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander, contaminants it becomes the breeding ground for mould spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes
DUCT CLEANING IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IF:
- Anyone in your home or office suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems.
- Anyone in your personal or professional family suffers from headaches, nasal congestion, or other sinus problems at night or in the morning.
- There are smokers in the home or business.
- You have dogs, cats or other pets in your home.
- You notice “musty” or “stale” odors when the furnace or air conditioner runs; or
- Your furnace is equipped only with a standard throw-away fiberglass filter.
