WARNING ABOUT SCAM AIR DUCT CLEANING COMPANIES

All of our technicians are certified by Air-Care to properly utilize our air duct cleaning equipment and we also abide by the Air-Care code of conduct that strives to provide the highest quality service in the industry. We want the public to be warned about scam air duct cleaning companies. Many of these companies publish coupons for low prices from $59.99 - $79.99, then rather than delivering quality air duct cleaning services for the promised price, they do low-quality work for an up-sold, often times outrageous price.
In 2011, Chris Hanson and NBC conducted an expose on these scam businesses. They found them to be present in at least 22 states in the U.S., including Illinois. Often times these businesses target senior citizens. The NBC Hanson Files video can be watched at right.

THE SOLUTION TO CONTAMINATED INDOOR AIR
Homes and offices have contaminated air that is circulated through the central heating and air systems. Even frequent filter changes cannot stop this contamination. Disposable filters have an arrestance of less than 15%, thus letting 85% of the pollutants pass through the filter and into the air ducts. Contamination builds up over time in your air system. This build-up will reduce the efficiency of your air system, shorten its operating life, and continue to circulate the contaminants throughout your home or office.
The solution is a thorough air system decontamination performed by a qualified technician. There are several steps to air duct decontamination, the first being debris removal. Your system will require additional steps for a full decontamination. This includes cleaning the air handler and applying sanitizers and sealers to the duct system. The technician can explain the different steps as shown on our Residential Services page, and advise what your home needs. To protect your freshly cleaned air system, ask your technician about a high-efficiency, permanent, electrostatic air filter.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY AND YOUR HEALTH
Billions of dollars are spent each year to treat the symptoms of contaminated air. Instead of merely addressing the symptoms, you can deal with the cause by decontaminating the actual air in your home or workplace.
Today, our homes and workplaces are airtight and energy-efficient. This means that they trap pollutants and contaminants inside, which lowers the quality of the air we breathe. The American Lung Association estimates that we spend 90% of our time indoors. Indoor air can be 2 to 3 times more polluted than outdoor air, so it is easy to see how your home or workplace could be harmful to your health.
CONTAMINATED AIR.....IT'S EFFECT
Dust aggravates breathing problems, causes burning eyes and itching skin, and makes allergy problems worse. Health agencies, doctors, and scientific researchers claim that airborne dust may be one of the worst causes of health-related problems.
Did you know that common house dust is more dangerous than outdoor dust? It has bacteria, pollen, skin flakes, decaying organic matter, fungi, hair, dust mites, viruses, textile fibers, residue from chemicals, and many other contaminants. In addition to health problems, contaminated air costs you money. Dirty air soils wall coverings, carpets, upholstery, and clothing.
