The money you’ve invested to have a well-insulated, airtight and secure home might make you sick. Let me explain.
A DIRTY LITTLE SECRET
You’ve probably weather-stripped, tightened and insulated your home to the hilt – to do the right thing- save energy because of extremely high natural gas prices, we have seen homes with over 284% increase in cost of gas over one year, – what you have done is correct to save energy and resources. And I applaud you for that.
WHY DIRTY AIR DUCTS CAN MAKE YOU SICK
But in doing so your home has become like a vault, Tight Home Sickness. Outside air doesn’t “ventilate” your home like it used to. Especially when you keep the doors and windows closed in the summer when you’re air conditioning is on and in the winter when you’re heating.
Anyway here’s what I discovered.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOUR AIR DUCTS ARE DIRTY?
Dust, smoke, pollen, chemical sprays, mold, fungus and germs build up in your ductwork. This creates a “chemical and biological soup” that can cause sinus problems, intensify allergies and aggravate breathing difficulties.
Each time your furnace comes on it “force feeds” this unhealthy mixture of contaminated air into every room in your home. In fact, the EPA has found this air in your home to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air.
First, your ductwork was dirty before you ever moved in. It’s true – even if you bought your home new. Here’s why. A lot of the construction dirt, drink cans, and fast food wrappers left by the workers were swept right into the holes where the ductwork is connected.
Second, imagine what your carpet would look like in a few years if it was never vacuumed or cleaned. That gives you an idea of your ductwork if it’s never been cleaned. And all the air you breathe passes through those air ducts.
The best way to clean air ducts is with a machine, powerful enough to create a strong vacuum throughout the entire ductwork system, while supplying very high pressure combined with agitation. That’s why we have invested in the most powerful source removal duct cleaning machines in the state of Iowa.

What the EPA Says About Your Dirty Ducts
The EPA states that a duct cleaning service, “providing that it is done properly”, will take 3 to 8 hours and will “range in cost from $450.00 to $1,000.00 per heating and cooling system, depending on the services offered, the size of the system to be cleaned, system accessibility, the climate region, and level of contamination.”
The EPA also says that a properly done “duct cleaning” job should include the cleaning of “all components of the system”. . . and “failure to clean the components of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits.”
