Air Duct Cleaning Might Be The Prescription
A few years ago I had a client call for carpet cleaning. She wanted to get the carpet cleaned because her son had allergies. They wanted to try to get rid of the dust, dirt, pet dander and dust mites in the carpet. We inspected the carpet and found that there was dirt in the carpet all around the heating vents. I said, "Yes, I should be able to get most of that out of the carpet, however it looks like that dirt is coming from your duct system." I see this thing all the time. Every time your furnace turns on, it's "blowing dust into your home". I knew right then that I had to find a way to help.

Sometimes we use manual brushes or rotating power brushes if necessary. The Hepa-Aire unit creates a powerful vacuum, pulling dislodged contaminants into it's filtration system. This filtration system is so efficient that it captures contaminants 1/300th the diameter of a human hair and returns filtered "hospital grade" air to your home. Once your duct system has been cleaned, we reseal all access holes and your ducts are returned to "like new" condition.
