Contrary to popular belief, air pollution is not just an outdoor problem. In fact, a recent scientific study at Yale University has indicated that the air inside 19 of 20 homes is more polluted than the air outside. One of the main contributors to indoor air pollution is the dust and contaminants that get caught in a house’s ductwork.
That’s where UNIQUE Air Duct Cleaning comes in. Our duct cleaning services in Maryland Virginia and Washington DC can rid your home of the dust, dirt and debris that may be caught in your ducts and eliminate the opportunity for mold, fungi and microbes to begin to grow inside your ductwork and further pollute the air in your home. Additionally, the buildup of debris and lint in your home’s dryer vents is subject to bacterial growth and also presents a potential fire hazard in your home.

AIR DUCT CLEANING &
Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out.
Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.
While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
