How can our air duct cleaning in San Diego help you?
If you or someone in your San Diego home smokes or you have just purchased a home and the previous owners smoked; you need to have our San Diego air duct cleaning team come out and clean your air ducts. Your duct work is the lungs of your home and if it is contaminated then so is the air you and your family are breathing. Our San Diego Air duct cleaning will remove all containment including tobacco smoke residue from inside your duct work system. Once the system is cleaned and all containment are fully removed, your system is then sanitized. The sanitizer will help to kill remaining bacteria and eliminate any lingering odors. A clean ductwork system is the only way to ensure full removal of ETS buildup.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends having your air ducts cleaned every three to five years; however, if you or someone in your home smokes it is highly recommended to have your air ducts cleaned more frequently to ensure a better indoor air quality for you and your family.
How to tell if ETS is building in your ducts ?
Firstly, if you see build up and residue on things in your home such as, walls, curtains and other things then it is safe to assume that it is in your ductwork. Another good sign to follow is to listen to your nose. If every time you turn on your system and you smell an increase or strong tobacco odor then you can expect to find a buildup in your ductwork.
