6 Scary Facts About Your Duct System That Will Keep You Awake at Night

With Halloween right around the corner we expect to see ghosts, goblins and ghouls around town. 

But did you know the monsters you should be worried about aren’t hiding under the bed, but lurking in your ceilings and behind your walls?

That’s right. The air ducts that transport conditioned air throughout your home may be harboring dust mites, mold and even populations of insects or rodents.

These critters or their contaminants are then allowed to re-circulate into the air you and your family breathes via your cooling system.

We think that’s scary.

Fortunately, air duct cleaning services can remove these contaminants so you can rest assured you are all breathing clean air.
