Many people do have allergic reactions to pollen, bacteria and dust mites. Allergies including hay fever and asthma affect 41 million Americans or about one out of six people. A Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaner will rid your air of up to 95% of these allergy irritating particles.

Improving Indoor Air Quality has become a major concern. Besides having your air ducts cleaned, consider upgrading your air filter.

Residential / Home Air Duct Cleaning

                            The Problem Before and After;

Do you know what lurks in your home air ducts; any idea what it looks like?  Did you realize that during the building process of new homes all kinds of debris can be put into the ductwork?  Not only is there drywall and saw dust, but many different contaminants will accumulate over time.  Through the normal everyday living process in your home, your ductwork becomes a holding cell for pet dander, dust, allergens of all sorts, dirt and even mold spores.   Everyday your family breathes air that is continually re-circulated through this contaminated ductwork.

The Solution;

Duct cleaning involves cleaning the air vents that move air from your central air conditioner throughout your home. If your air ducts are dirty, that dirt is circulated throughout your home and into the indoor air you breathe. The dirt is also pulled through your central air conditioner, which can strain the unit and decrease the efficiency. In addition, some duct systems contain mold, mildew and microorganisms that are also circulated through the home.

Professional duct cleaning can remove these hazards from your indoor air. However, it is important to note that not all duct-cleaning procedures are equal. We like to say, "beware of the bargain duct cleaner". Many duct cleaning companies use inferior equipment that simply brush the dirt around or pick up the dirt closest to the vents with a low power vacuum. Make sure the duct cleaner you choose uses top quality HEPA equipment and guarantees source removal in their process. In addition, a full home duct cleaning should take several hours and cost between $400-$750 dollars on average. If you see a bargain duct-cleaning offer, they are more likely to clean out your wallet than your ducts.
