HVAC system service and cleaning
Servicing your HVAC system and cleaning your home’s ductwork can go a long way toward helping you breathe more freely in your own home. Every day, things such as mold, dust, viruses, bacteria, and dust mites can circulate through your air after passing through your HVAC system. By adding a whole home air purifier to it, you can remove a high percentage of these toxins from your air.
Your ducts should be cleaned every two to three years to ensure clean indoor air. Over time, dirt and debris build up in your ducts and become a holding ground for dust mites, pollens, and allergens. These microscopic pollutants can quickly multiply, creating millions of virus and bacteria particles inside your ductwork that are constantly flowing through the air simply because your ducts aren’t clean.
