Cleanliness
Bacteria, viruses, fungi, dust mites and decaying organic matter are sent airborne throughout your home every time your systems are turned on. Wouldn't you feel better knowing the air around you is clean and free of all of this dirt, dust and debris?
Health
Air duct systems are home to many substances that can aggravate allergies. Your ductwork is a perfect breeding ground for germs and bacteria.
Health experts now 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. Inadequate filtration and poor fresh air exchange found in many businesses and homes tend to continually recirculate allergens and concentrate them so that the indoor air becomes eight to 10 times more likely to cause respiratory illnesses than outside air.
Proper cleaning of ductwork will substantially reduce the amount of allergens, dirt and dust that are circulated throughout your home or office.
Safety
Did you know that buildup of dust, lint, dirt and other debris in your ducts and dryer vents can cause a serious fire hazard?

Air ducts
The buildup of dust, dirt and other debris in your ducts can get into the blower motor, which creates a dangerous fire hazard. Keeping your duct system clean will help mitigate fire risks in your household.
Dryer vents
Over time, lint builds up inside the dryer vent, which can clog the vent, preventing heat from escaping the dryer system. Clogged dryer vents present a serious fire hazard. Proper cleaning of your dryer vent can help you protect your home from vent fire hazards.
Fireplaces/chimneys
Not having your fireplace and chimney cleaned and inspected properly can also lead to serious fire hazards. Soot buildup can be ignited inside your chimney, possibly causing a house fire. Chimney inspections can identify cracked flue liners. Weathering can cause flue liners to crack, and these cracks can allow carbon monoxide into the house. Sparks from the fireplace can then ignite this carbon monoxide, also causing a house fire.
So, as you can see, furnace and air duct, dryer vent and fireplace cleaning cures "sick homes," makes the system last longer and conserves energy. Consider having your systems cleaned today.
