When you think cleaning your home, your first thought might not be the duct work. In fact, Americans spend 90% of their time indoors and the concern for the air quality isn’t always at the top of their list. You may notice above average dust levels, a musty smell or strange odor when you turn on your HVAC system. Worse yet, you may notice an increased level of respiratory issues or increased allergies. It may be your air ducts.
Research show that 87% of Americans are unaware that the air inside of their homes is more polluted than the air outside. How can this be? Well, according to the EPA, the average American home can accumulate as much as 40 pounds of dust per year. That is a lot of dust and pollutants to be breathing on a consistent basis. It is also estimated that nearly 90% of heating and cooling systems fail because they are not properly and routinely cleaned.
