Caddy Vac Duct Cleaning
You want your home to be a safe haven for your family. Yet dirty ductwork can be a trap for mold, mildew, pet dander, smoke, pollen and dust. With each breath you could be inhaling these pollutants, effecting your family’s health, comfort and safety.
How Can I Tell If I Need a Duct Cleaning?
Look inside one or two of your register covers. Do you see dirt, debris, and/or dust? Have dust and debris built up on your cold air return grilles? Is your air filter clogged with dust and dirt? If you have answered yes to these questions, you may need a duct cleaning. This service is recommended every 3-5 years.

The Air in your Home or Office Could be Making You Sick
Indoor air pollution is now listed by the Environmental Protection Agency as the fourth greatest environmental threat to Americans. Airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time the heater or air conditioner pumps air through it. These harmful contaminants will eventually build up inside your air duct system over a period of time.
Indoor contaminants may include: dust mites, tobacco smoke, household mold, chemicals, airborne allergens, bacteria, animal dander and carbon monoxide. These contaminants are then circulated throughout your home or office and affect the health and comfort of you, your employees or your family. Therefore, the periodic removal of all contaminants from the entire air distribution system is necessary so that fungal re-growth can’t occur.
Better Health for your Family
According to the EPA, indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Air duct cleaning by USA Indoor Air Quality removes airborne contaminates such as bacteria, fungus, mold spores, pet dander & pollen which may help to alleviate allergy & asthma symptoms.
Extended Equipment Life
9 out of 10 system failures are caused by dirt and dust. One of the functions of the fan, located inside of your air handler, is to keep the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated dirt and debris can reduce the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) as much as 50%. This is the most common cause of cracks in heat exchangers. By having your system cleaned, you may prevent pre-mature breakdown & aging of your heating and cooling system.
According to the EPA, a build up of only .042 inches of dirt on a heating coil can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%. A clean air conveyance system may help to increase efficiency and therefore may help to reduce heating and cooling costs.
Source removal duct cleaning can help to reduce household dust by removing the dust where it travels most – through your air duct system.
