The Pros and Cons of Air Duct Cleaning


Air duct cleaning is a relatively new procedure. Because it’s so new, knowledge and information about air duct cleaning is still in the beginning stages. In fact, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “…there is no evidence that a light amount of household dust or other particulate matter in air ducts poses any risk to your health.”

Still, the EPA does admit that there are times you should consider having your home’s air ducts cleaned. When that time does come, you’ll want to know what the pros and cons of air duct cleaning are. Let’s take a look.


  • Improved air quality
  • Decrease in allergens and dust
  • Professional removal of rodents and insects
  • Professional removal of mold and mildew
  • Less residue from fireplaces


  • Cost
  • Time-consuming
  • Some companies may use chemicals (EnviroGreen Boston only uses non-toxic cleaners)

When it comes down to it, if your air ducts are visibly dirty and affecting your health or the health of family members, the pros of air duct cleaning far outweigh the cons. EnviroGreen Boston invests in the most modern technology and air duct cleaning equipment to rid your home of the dirt, bacteria, dust and debris that has built up in your air ducts.
