The heating and cooling ductwork is a perfect breeding
ground for germs and bacteria. Some health experts believe
that approximately one in six people who suffer from
allergies do so as a direct result of fungi and bacteria in
the air duct system.

This allows bacteria and fungus to establish colonies. Air
Duct cleaning should be a part of your air quality program
both at work and at home. We use a very large vacuum system
designed to put your air duct system under negative
pressure. We close or seal each vent to maintain this
pressure and prevent dust entry into the home. We then clean
the interior of the ductwork with special tools that travel
through the ductwork to dislodge the debris. Once airborne
inside the ductwork, the debris is drawn into the vacuum
system by the strong airflow created by the negative
pressure. After cleaning the ductwork, we can sanitize or
deodorize the system.
