According To The National Air Duct Cleaners Association:
If Your air ducts look dirty, they probably are!
Take a look at the air vents in your home. Do they have a black sooty residue? Do know know what it looks like on the inside? Can you imagine what’s growing inside your air ducts?
If you have not had your air duct cleaned you can be sure there is an accumulation of dust mites, microbial growth and much, much more. All of that is being expelled though your air ducts and re-circulated into your indoor air. Indoor air is 90% more polluted than outdoor air and the average 1200 sqyare foot home an accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust in the AC system duct work.
Can Your Air Ducts Make You Sick?
If you or anyone in your family has been experiencing unexplained symptoms or illnesses related to your home, the EPA recommends discussing the situation with your doctor. The EPA has published a guide on identifying possible indoor air quality problems and ways to prevent them (The Inside Story: A Guide to Indoor Air Quality). Many people have their air ducts cleaned annually as part of a regular household cleaning routine. The accumulation of dust in the air ducts and heat strip causes an unpleasant burning odor. Since the rest of our home accumulates dirt and dust it makes sense that air ducts will get just as dirty and should be cleaned regularly, just like everything else. In most situations and annual air duct cleaning is all that is needed.

50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. (American College of Allergists) Levels of air pollution inside the home can be 2 to 5 times higher, and occasionally 100 times higher, than outdoor levels.

Reasons to Have your Air Ducts Cleaned:
Other then health concerns, air ducts need cleaning for many other reasons. Air ducts are often cleaned in response to a specific event such as a leak or excessive dust from home remodeling, rodent or insect infestations. Many homeowners have their air ducts cleaned regularly because of environmental factors related to where they live, the age of your air conditioning system, age and health of your home’s occupants, whether someone in your home smokes and if you have pets. By scheduling an annual air duct cleaning, you are taking a pro-active approach to your family’s health. Many bird owners are well aware of the need for regular air duct cleaning due to the excessive amount of dust in the environment caused by many popular bird species such as Cockatoos, Cockatiels and African Greys. Since our birds are living in a confined indoor environment and have very sensitive respiratory systems it is important for both human and avian health to schedule regular air duct cleaning.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommendations:
* There is visible mold growth inside your air ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system * Your ducts are infested with rodents or insects – cleaning will remove them and whatever attracted them to your ducts * Your ducts are clogged or air flow is severely restricted * Recent home remodeling – if you recently completed a home remodeling project that created a lot of dust (saw dust, demolition, dry wall work, etc.) – cleaning will prevent the dust from being distributed throughout the rest of your home. * If you find mold during a home renovation (in walls or ceilings – mold likes drywall) or when removing old carpet (mold is often found under carpet, in the carpet pad or on wood under the carpet) turn off your heating or cooling system immediately and try to seal off the room where you found the mold to prevent it from spreading to other parts of your home. If the mold problem is severe and you are concerned that it has contaminated your air conditioning and heating system or duct work you may want to schedule a appointment for one of our duct cleaning services and consult our duct cleaning technician (indoor air quality specialist) to determine what type of air duct cleaning service best suits your needs. If the problem is severe he may suggest air duct sanitizing. * Residents have asthma or allergies – health concerns related to dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, etc. * Water has entered the duct work from a pipe break, storm, fire, etc. * During routine cleaning of HVAC components mold was found or significant amounts of dust and debris was released into the duct system that the homeowner does not want distributed throughout their home by their duct system
