Improve Your Indoor Air Quality with AC Duct Cleaning.

Did you know that dirty and clogged ducts can store mold, fungus, bacteria, and microbes? If these nuisances are in your ducts, they’re also in the air you breathe. And that can endanger the health and well-being of you and your family. Even new homes can have contaminated ducts due to particles from drywall, dust, sawdust, and other materials present during construction.

Having served thousands of home and business owners since 1965, we understand how important clean air is to you and your family’s health. We have the experience and offer the best air duct cleaning Farmington.

Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranks poor indoor air quality among the top 5 environmental risks in public health?

The pollution in your home may be worse than it is outside.

Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors,1 where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. source: EPA.gov

Depending on the season, your AC or heater pushes air through the ducts of your home or business. Over time, the dust and dirt particles that travel through your ducts get stuck and build up within those pathways.

Home duct cleaning services are an excellent way to improve your home's indoor air quality to help you and your family breathe better. Especially if you have allergies, asthma, or other respiratory illnesses, cleaning your air ducts can improve your day-to-day quality of life. Who doesn’t want to breathe healthy air?

And as a bonus, having clean ducts can also help you save on your energy bill. Clean ducts can help your AC and heating systems run more efficiently, using less energy and saving money!

But how do you know when to call for home air duct cleaning services?

Our Air Duct Cleaning Process

If you're comparing us as an air duct cleaning St Louis company, we use an air whip and reverse air sweep of all heat runs, return airlines, and main duct lines rather than a plain old rotary brush system.

  1. We begin with a reverse air sweep to break loose any dirt and dust accumulated in the ducts, helping prepare the ducts for the next step, the air whip.
  2. The technician then inserts an air nozzle into the ductwork with an air whip system.
  3. A compressor is turned on, forcing air out of the inserted nozzle, creating enough pressure to push out any dirt or dust inside your ductwork.
  4. We then clean all supply and return air ducts, and the air handling side of the furnace (consisting of the blower, supply, and return plenums) is performed.
  5. Following, we air wash the evaporator, which removes unpleasant smells, microscopic allergens, and harmful bacteria (all included in our service)
  6. Finally, the furnace and main duct sanitation are performed to ensure your family has high-quality and ultra-breathable indoor air.

Now that's extensive!

Cleaning Dryer Vents

Have you found that you have to run your dryer more than once to get your load of laundry dry? Clogged vents can increase dry times, increasing your energy bill.

Not to mention, having to run multiple cycles is just plain annoying. Getting a dryer vent cleaning could help dry your loads of laundry faster.

Clogged dryer vents are also a top source of house fires.

In fact...

Approximately 2,900 home fires caused by clothes dryers are reported every year, resulting in around 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property damage. Getting a dryer vent cleaning regularly can help keep your home and family safe." source: U.S. Fire Administration
