Most homeowners have no idea what goes on inside their home’s air ducts. But they can become littered with years of accumulated dirt, debris and allergens like pollen, dust and pet dander. An average household duct system (1,500sq ft) can circulate up to 40lbs of dirt, dust, mold, hair, dead insects and worse – in one year. Even new and remodeled homes aren’t safe, mainly because builders leave on average 15lbs of debris in the ductwork from construction. This is because the ductwork is always installed before the rooms are finished and sheetrocked. All this dirt and debris left in your system create the perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. All having the ability to negatively impact your health.
