What’s in your air ducts? In an ideal world, the sheet metal conduits would carry air and nothing else. But the unfortunate reality is that dust, debris, pet dander, mold and so much more can make its way into your ductwork.

What's In Your Air Ducts?Dust, debris & dander 

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), “In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living.” Much of this dust makes it into your heating and cooling system, aka the lungs of your home. It can recirculate throughout your duct work five to seven times every day.

Mold


If heating, ventilation, and air conditioning mechanical systems are insufficiently maintained, their metallic surfaces can provide the organic matter mold needs to grow. EnviroGreen Boston can identify and treat mold within your ductwork with an all-natural, botanical-based, anti-microbial treatment approved by the EPA.

Vermin


Rodent infestation is no joke. They leave behind feces and urine, which are then dispersed throughout your house. Some critters can even create holes in your air ducts, making your heating and cooling system operate less efficiently.
