AIR DUCT CLEANING – Out of Sight is Not Out of Mind

Although air ducts are out of sight, that doesn’t mean they should be out of mind. As time passes, contaminants build up in the ducts and can lead to decreased indoor air quality, higher energy bills, and even negative health effects.

ENVIRONMENTAL CARPET AND AIR CARE is family owned and operated, and has been improving the health of homes in the Malibu, West Side and Conejo Valley areas since 1993. They specialize in carpet and rug cleaning, air duct cleaning, hard surface and floor cleaning, and more. Their goal is to make lifelong customers by establishing friendships with their clients and by delivering high-quality work at a fair price. They shared their before and after photos on their Facebook Page.

They were called in to perform an air duct cleaning in a house recently… and WOW. We’re not sure how long these ducts had gone without a cleaning, but we suspect it was many, many years. ENVIRONMENTAL said that this job was in their top five worst air duct cleanings. No surprise there! Just take a look:

The air ducts were so clogged with pollutants – dust, allergens, etc. – that the airflow through the vents was likely extremely constricted, making the HVAC system work harder. In addition, the home’s inhabitants were breathing in particulates that had the potential to adversely impact their health! Pretty serious stuff.

ENVIRONMENTAL noted that some of the build-up hardened over time and they were unable to remove it, but it’s such a small amount you can hardly tell. After cleaning the duct with brushes, air-flow and whips, they sanitized and deodorized the whole system. Practically good as new – and WAY better than it was when they arrived!
