What is Air Duct Cleaning?

Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of your home's central air. The most common way of doing this is by taking a powerful, specialized vacuum cleaner and directing it down your air vents to gather as much dust in the system as possible. Check out the video below to see how it works:
It is also common for chemicals to be used to allow the dust and particles to be picked up by the vacuum easier. Here at Breathe EZ Home Solutions, we use a special product called SaniJet by RamAir International to provide the best cleaning possible, while allowing you to enjoy your home even while we work.

Should I Get My Ducts Cleaned?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average home accumulates about 40 pounds of dust per year. That's the average weight of a Border Collie! Imagine what that can do to you by breathing all that dust in. Cleaning your ducts not only cleans the air you breathe, but also helps people suffering from persistent allergies or asthma breathe better.
