What's Circulating In Your Home's Air
What You Can't See Can Hurt You!
In today's air-tight home, Indoor Air Quality is a growing concern.
Among other things, household dust contains dust mites, mold, mildew, pollen, and animal dander.
Many of these contaminants are circulated through the central air systems in most homes
and can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and allergies.
How can these contaminants be removed from the air duct system?
Our professionals use the video-assisted ROTOBRUSH air duct cleaning system.
This advanced cleaning method is the only one available that brushes and vacuums at the point of contact,
eliminating the use of harsh chemicals such as sealers.
You are left with the assurance of fresh, clean and virtually contaminant-free air in your home and office.
Here's How It Works
We clean the register covers to remove cooking oil film, nicotine film and other dust-collecting substances.
We deep clean the source of the air supply including (where readily accessable)
the blower, squirrel cage, coils, condensation pan and return air supply.
The air ducts are then brush vacuumed clean with our exclusive, patented ROTOBRUSH.
The ROTOBRUSH removes the contaminants that circulate through the air duct system.
We will sanitize your air ducts and vents with an environmentally safe sanitizer commonly used in hospitals and nursing homes, leaving behind a fresh scent.

Additional information about why having your air ducts cleaned is so important
A word from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing. If not properly installed, maintained, and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the home's living space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.
Benefits of Clean Air Ducts:
Cleaning removes accumulated dirt and debris from the ductwork!
A Clean system improves air circulation.
Cleaning will add life to your current system.
Cleaning will improve overall indoor air quality.
If you answer "Yes" to any of the following questions, your home may suffer from indoor air pollution:
· Do you experience headaches, nausea, or burning sensations in the nose, throat, or eyes more frequently at home than when outside?
· Do you have allergies to mold and mildew?
· Do you have pets?
· Do you have a central air circulating system that utilizes standard throw-away fiberglass filter?
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions you may be throwing money in the air:
Do you regularly clean excessive dust accumulations from your household furniture?
Do you notice poor air flow?
Do you live in a new or newly remodeled home?
Do you live in a house that has been recently insulated or weather-proofed?
Do you live in a home that has never been cleaned by an expert?
Research by the U.S. EPA has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty systems.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality is among the five most important environmental concerns facing Americans today. Not surprising, since the EPA also estimates that we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors. The National Energy Management Institute (NEMI) estimates that indoor air quality problems cost the economy more than $63 billion dollars a year in decreased productivity and healthcare costs. In the home, the effects of poor indoor air quality can be just as damaging. EPA studies indicate indoor air pollutants may be two to five times, and possibly more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. Prolonged exposure, or exposure to contaminants at an early age can lead to a lifetime of debilitating sensitivity. While young children and those with allergies and asthma are especially susceptible to its effects, poor indoor air quality can lead to health problems for any person. First Response Carpet Care is dedicated to helping all people live and work more comfortably in their homes and offices. By strictly adhering to industry guidelines, First Response is providing the highest level of service to both its residential and commercial clients. The importance of the issue of indoor air quality demands nothing less.
How Often Should Residential HVAC Systems Be Cleaned?
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the home owner. Some of the things that may lead a home owner to consider more frequent cleaning include:
· Smokers in the household.
· Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander.
· Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system.
· Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home's HVAC system.
· After home renovations or remodeling.
· Prior to occupancy of a new home.
