Dust is sneaky. Without even looking for it, it forms so you can see it. Dust is everywhere, and it is unavoidable. We allow dust to freely enter our homes on a day to day basis.

Your duct system recycles this contaminated air throughout your home every day all day. How does this affect you?  When these contaminants find a hiding place in/on any of...Read More

To maintain protection against biological growth, an EPA-registered biocide should be applied every six to 12 months by a qualified duct-cleaning professional.  Read More
