Residential Air Duct Cleaning
As per the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates indoor air could be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) has also estimated that on an average every year air ducts in a six-room house collects 40 pounds of allergens, dust and dirt. With regular operation of heating and cooling system, polluted air is re-circulated inside a home and gets more and more contaminated. Contaminated residential air duct system also blocks the air to flow freely putting pressure on the entire HVAC system thereby decreasing its efficiency. This puts pressure on your pocket and expenses. So take the professional services of Induct Clean for residential air duct cleaning.
