Dirty ducts circulate dirty air! They can also provide a breeding ground for a variety of microbial growth such as mold and bacteria. The possibility of this scenario is increased in buildings that have recently undergone remodel or improvement projects.
Home Health and Air Duct Cleaning Facts:
- EPA claims indoor air has been found to be up to 70% more polluted than outdoor air (EPA)
- A build up of .42 inches of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21% (EPA)
- Most commercially purchased fiberglass filters are only 7% efficient at stopping dirt, dust and pollen from through it. (ASHRAE)
- 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. (American College of Allergist)
So, the EPA claims the indoor air is up to 70% more polluted than the air outside … Pretty scary claim! One reason why is because today’s buildings are built much more air-tight than in days past for the sake of energy efficiency.
How It Works
Vogel will clean your duct work with our patented RotoBrush ® duct cleaning machine. The patented RotoBrush ® machine utilizes a specially designed rotating brush to scrub all interior surfaces of your duct while a powerful vacuum removes the freshly loosed dirt, dust and debris in one pass. These contaminates are captured within the machine through a series of Hepa Air Filters into a disposable bag. You will be amazed by the amount of debris removed from your system. We've been doing this for over 50 years, and our technicians are still amazed!
While you may be able to find someone cheaper and less experienced than Vogel to clean your duct system; would you hire an auto mechanic for electrical work or a plumber for a new roof to save money? Please contact the professionals at Vogel for this and all of your heating and cooling needs!
