Have you seen dust collect in inaccessible places in your home? If you forget to vacuum under your bed for a few weeks you will find large accumulations of dust. Can you imagine what you will find in a ventilation system that system that hasn't been cleaned in years?
The dirt found in heating and air conditioning ductwork is often composed of insects, rodents, dust mites, animal hair and dander, pollen, dead skin, cigarette tar, asbestos, fungi and bacteria. These contaminants can aggravate allergies, asthma, sinus conditions and headaches in persons who are sensitive. In its 1997 booklet, "The Inside Story, A Guide to Indoor Air Quality", the EPA reports that "People with breathing problems, allergies and lung diseases are particularly susceptible to disease causing biological agents in the indoor air. Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and other sources of biological contamination and can distribute these contaminants through the building"

In older homes O2PURE Air Duct Cleaning finds clumps of dirt and dust, while in the newer homes wood particles, sawdust, garbage and other debris is found. We often find food, soda and beer cans, left by construction workers in the ducts.

Why do air duct cleaning prices vary from company to company?
Not all air duct-cleaning companies are the same. When calling or researching to have your ducts cleaned make sure the company is cleaning your entire system. It is vital to clean the main trunk line as well as each vent line, "source removal" being the best method. The objective is the complete removal of all dirt, debris and other contaminants. Our belief is that spraying chemicals in your ducts may cause more damage to your health than if you don't! Think about this! Would you want to breathe unknown chemicals?

With the increasing global focus on environmental safety, building air quality has become very important. The growing number of lawsuits is an indication of this problem. Poor air quality is proven to affect the health of workers everywhere. According to environmental experts nationwide, many building air problems begin in the ducts. Carbon-containing dirt and moisture found in building ductwork and air-conditioning drip pans breed bacteria and mold. These contaminants float throughout the air handling system in the building. The first and least expensive step to eliminating these problems is to clean the building air handling system.
Building air quality problems can be solved in most cases by thorough cleaning of the ductwork.
