Air Duct Cleaning
Air Duct Cleaning in Washington, DC, Maryland & Virginia
Indoor air quality has become a growing concern in the Washington, DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia area. When your air ducts are polluted with dust, mold, bacteria or anything else, your allergy, asthma and sinus conditions may worsen – especially in the summertime.
Whether you’re looking for air duct cleaning for your home or for your business, our duct cleaning services ensure healthy homes and healthy workplaces. Putting off regular cleanings can lead to excess mold and bacteria, unpleasant odors and increased utility bills from reduced air flow.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Health benefits –no matter how clean you keep your home, your indoor air quality can be anywhere from 2 to 100 times worse than the outdoor air quality! This is due to a variety of factors, from dust and mold to cleaning chemical fumes and even chemically treated wood floors and furniture. Having regular air duct cleaning can help reduce or eliminate airborne contaminates such as mold, bacteria, fungus, pet dander and pollen which can irritate people with allergies or asthma.
Extended equipment life – according to the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service (a research group at the LSU Agricultural Center), nine out of every ten air conditioner and heating system failures are caused by the accumulation of dirt and dust in your ducts and in the systems themselves. This is because dirt and dust can reduce the efficiency of the blower fan, making it unable to keep the heat exchanger cool. This then leads to cracks in the heat exchanger, potentially destroying your system. Clean air ducts can help eliminate these risks and ensure your heating system lasts as long as it is supposed to.
Energy savings – the EPA estimates that less than a half inch of dust buildup on a heating coil can reduce the overall efficiency of your system by 20% or more. Regular air duct cleaning will reduce the presence of dust and dirt in your heating or air conditioning system and help it maintain its normal efficiency levels.
Less dusting – less dust in the air means less dust settling on your furniture and floating around your home. Regular air duct cleaning can help keep the dust levels in your home under control – a huge benefit to people with allergies and an even bigger benefit to whoever does the dusting!
