Indoor air pollution is a growing concern; it's one of the EPA's top five environmental risks to public health. Your home's air ducts serve an important purpose as they circulate the air from your heating and cooling system into and out of each room, providing dependable interior comfort throughout the varying seasons. The air flowing through your ducts is the same air that fills your home and that you and your family are breathing in; meaning you want it to be as sanitary as can be.


Air duct cleaning is the elimination of dust and pollutants within the ductwork. The cleaning process consists of the supply and return air ducts, registers and diffusers in each room. Powerful equipment is used to vacuum all dust and other detrimental particles to deter it from funneling through the home.

What factors affect indoor air quality?

Indoor air quality pertains to the quality of air inside your home. Many factors can affect the air quality, such as humidity, pollen, sickness, mold and mildew, etc. There are several solutions, based on your needs, to improve the quality of the air inside your home.


A thermostat is a device used to read the current temperature of a space and provide the ability to modify that temperature as desired. Thermostats have come a long way since first being invented in 1883. Thermostats today can range from digital on the basic end, to thermostats with dehumidification built in for humidity control, to ones so advanced that you can control them remotely from your smartphone.


A humidifier is a device used to add moisture to the air in your home. These can be extremely beneficial for several reasons, some of which you may not have known. Humidity in the air makes for more comfortable breathing in fall and winter months and helps reduce energy costs because you feel warm and comfortable at lower temperatures. Adding moisture to the air also can help protect wooden objects, such as furniture and decorative pieces, which may be sensitive to overly dry air.


According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks. This is a prime reason to consider adding an electronic air cleaner (EAC) or ultraviolet light to your HVAC system. Some pollutants that can affect the air quality in your home are dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, smoke and viruses, which can cause a variety of health problems, such as allergies, respiratory diseases and asthma. EACs use an electrostatic attraction to trap charged particles, allowing them to settle faster so they are no longer floating through the air in your home. Likewise, ultraviolet lights damage and kill microbes commonly found in HVAC systems. They have been proven to reduce mold, fungus and viruses.
