Each and every time you run your furnace or air conditioner, airborne materials such as dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander, skin flakes, hair and other tiny particles are pulled into your duct system. If these contaminants are left to build up, your air ducts become the perfect breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew, and other microbes. Then, when the furnace or air conditioner is turned on, these contaminants are spewed out and circulated throughout your home to adversely affect the health and comfort of your family.
It has been well-documented that poor indoor air quality results in allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments. Children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollutants. Having Chimcare provide a thorough air duct cleaning might be one of the most important things you could do for your family, since the removal of contaminants from the entire HVAC (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning) system is recognized by industry experts as the most effective way to eliminate air duct pollutants. This is referred to as the “source removal” method of duct cleaning.
In addition to the obvious health benefits, air duct cleaning can help you maintain a cleaner home. It also helps to restore HVAC system capacity and lessen running time to result in lower heating and cooling bills.

Chimcare uses an Abatement HEPA-Aire air duct cleaning process — the most efficient air duct cleaning system available today. It utilizes powerful positive and negative airflow along with agitating brushes to reach and clean every crevice of your duct system with a high-powered vacuum at one end and a high-volume air compressor at the other, and agitation devices to dislodge debris from duct work. Our equipment contains true HEPA filters, the same filters used in hospitals and laboratories, to ensure that pure air is released back into your home when having your air duct cleaning done.
