Dust got you down this summer?

Your ductwork may be the culprit!

Dirty ductwork can do many things above and beyond kicking out dirt to your nice furniture. It can affect your health, allergies, and more! Most often, the problem of dirty ductwork builds and builds because it usually goes unchecked for years at a time. We have probably all been a little guilty of having the “Out of sight, out of mind” mentality too!
If you happen to look in our ductwork (or have us do it), and you see some unsightly buildup of debris, don’t be alarmed. It’s probably been there for years and slowly accumulating over time. The good news is that you may not be experiencing any noticeable health problems from that debris. The bad news is that the debris is just a cesspool of decomposing particles that can be home to many things that can cause health problems in the future.

What can I do about it?

Regular Duct Cleanings can eliminate most of the debris in your ductwork. It’s recommended to do duct cleaning as needed instead of on a schedule or annual basis.
Filtration can also stop the addition of debris in your ductwork. There are many kinds of filters out there that can do a decent job in catching the debris particles before they enter your ductwork.
However, we usually find that the best solution is a holistic one. We like to get the ducts as clean as possible first, then come up with a filtration solution that will keep them clean and you and your family healthier.
