Best Cincinnati Duct Cleaning Company

Duct cleaning can improve your home’s air quality. Think about the stuff you see floating in the air when sunshine lights a room in your home. Well, 80% of it is dead skin along with hundreds of pollutants and contaminants that can aggrevate allergies and cause illness, and they are all being circulated through your heating and air conditioning system. Your furnace filter can catch some of it, but the rest is deposited in the air ducts or continues to float through your home until it is pulled back into the airflow, which makes your air ducts even dirtier. Since most of us are inside about 90% of the time, we’re breathing in these unfiltered impurities.

A Thomas & Galbraith duct cleaning technician uses specialized tools to dislodge and remove dirt and debris in your airflow systems. Then, your air ducts are sanitized. Duct cleaning includes cleaning the supply and return air ducts and registers, grills and diffusers, heat exchangers, and cooling coils.

 

Think about what’s really in “a breath of fresh air” that comes from your air ducts…

  • Dead skin cells… a dust mite’s favorite meal.
  • Dust… About 40 pounds of dust is generated per 1,500 square feet every year.
  • Dust mites… Each speck of dust carries about 40,000 dust mites and other illness-causing bacteria and viruses. Dust mites comprise over 50% of the weight of the average pillow. YUCK!
  • Germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, and fungi… Air ducts are a fertile breeding ground for these.
  • Cigarette, cigar, and pipe smoke… leaves air with over 3,600 cancer-causing toxins that cling to our clothing and release themselves when we enter other homes and buildings.
  • Chemical gases (formaldehyde, benzene, etc.) from new carpets, furniture, dry cleaning, and construction… The “new” smell from your new carpet, freshly painted walls, new home, remodeled room, etc. is really the out-gassing of the chemicals used to treat these products.
  • Insects and other bugs… Insect and bug feces is a powerful allergen. In an extensive study by the New England Journal of Medicine, more than half the homes tested had high levels of cockroaches. Children living in these homes were more than three times as likely to be hospitalized for asthma.
  • Household cleaners/aerosols, insecticides, pesticides… We even poison the air we breathe with chemical fumes and toxins when we use these products.
  • Pets… Pet dander (a pet’s dried spit that breaks off the end of its hair into the air) is a common trigger for allergies and asthma. Plus, the feces from your pet emits added contaminates into the air.
