Is This Your Air Duct System?
It comes as a shock to
most homeowners to know they keep a hidden "dirty
room" in their house: the humid air ducts in which
germs breed and are circulated. Such contamination can
create serious health hazards, especially to those
persons susceptible to allergies and to other respiratory
ailments. When the air ducts are not clean it's just like
having a dirty room in the house.
Most homeowners are
completely unaware of this "dirty room". Why?
First, they may feel that their heating and cooling
system doesn't allow any dust into their duct system.
Second, they may believe that their filters keep the
system clean even if their heating or cooling system does
A typical filter in
your home or office collects only about 7% to 10% of the
dust and carbon particles circulating through your
system's duct work; which means that up to 93% of the
airborne contaminants circulates through them. A good
portion of these pollutants settle in the duct work and
provide breeding grounds for bacteria, fungi, mold
spores, dust mites and other harmful allergens.
Every heating and
cooling system depends on the flow of air. As this air
circulates, it picks up some of the lint, dust particles,
animal dander and other types of particles which normally
occur in every home and deposits it in the ducts where it
collects and builds up.
The solution to this
dilemma is air washing the duct system with a unique
machine called "Power-Vac". Our process of
dust, bacteria, and odor removal is a simple, yet
extremely effective procedure that begins with drawing a
very high-powered vacuum from the plenum at the furnace
(supply and return air) , while simultaneously "Air
Washing" the duct system with our patented 250
P.S.I. "Skipper" (a high pressure
nozzle that is inserted into the system and propels
itself through the duct work) The third step of our
process is to clean the plenums, furnace, evaporator coil
(optional blower compartment and the blower fan itself).
Once your air duct
system has been vacuumed and cleaned, the best method to
help maintain your duct system and keep it clear of
pollutants in the future is to install an ELECTROSTATIC
filter. A top-quality, efficient electrostatic filter
will trap 96% of any particulate as small as .3 of a
micron. A grain of salt is 20-178 microns in diameter.
Air duct cleaning will
benefit your family's health by alleviating indoor
allergies and respiratory problems. It will prolong the
life of your entire heating and cooling system and will
reduce the cost of operating your system. Air duct
cleaning also increases your cooling and heating
efficiency, plus less time is spent dusting and cleaning
your home or office.
Unlike other so-called
cleaning firms, Simpson Power-Vac, Inc. removes the dust
and debris from the duct system. We do not attempt to
cover up the contamination problem with chemicals that
may eventually flake off making the air quality in the
home or office even worse.
Doesn't it make sense
to protect your family and home with the best duct
cleaning money can buy?
