A dirty ventilation system in your home can lead to everything from allergic reactions to house fires, but regular professional air duct cleaning from Modernistic can leave your house cleaner, healthier, and safer.
Professional cleaning is the easiest way to ensure your home’s heating, ventilation, and cooling system (HVAC) is properly maintained.
Dirt and dust aren’t the only contaminants that accumulate over time in your vents. Pollen, pet hair, pet dander, dead insects, and rodent feces are other contaminants found in home air ducts that can cause problems, such as increasing the risk of asthma and allergy attacks in your house.
Debris from construction and renovations also collects in your home’s heating and cooling system.
Tips For Improving Indoor Air Quality

- Use high quality air filters and replace them as instructed.
- Keep pets out of the home as much as possible.
- Do not smoke indoors.
- Maintain healthy air with proper air duct maintenance.
EPA Definitions of Poor Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) listed poor indoor air quality as one of the five biggest environmental risks to public health. According to the EPA, 90% of common colds are caught while indoors, breathing indoor air. Indoor air quality is believed to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air.
A yearly professional cleaning can help prevent the spread of these harmful pollutants.
