- Indoor air quality is one of the EPA’s top five environmental risks to public health.
- 87% of American homeowners are not aware that pollution may be worse inside their homes than outdoors.
- The 3 most important methods of improving indoor air quality are source removal, air cleaning, and increased ventilation.
The 1973 Energy Crisis
In 1973 there was an energy crisis. To tackle this problem, public officials changed building codes, calling for tighter construction. These changes inadvertently introduced new building materials that contained harmful chemicals, creating challenges for indoor air quality. The term “sick home syndrome” emerged to describe the rising level of air pollution inside homes.
The Dangers of Indoor Air Pollution
According to the EPA, levels of air pollution inside the homes can be 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels due to chemicals found in building materials, as well as home cleaning products and household dust. Dust can contain mites, mold, mildew, pollen, and animal dander–all of which is cycled through the central air system, which completely circulates the air in your home 3 to 5 times a day.
Do my ducts need to be cleaned?
Our service experts use a video inspection system to evaluate your home’s ductwork. We look for dirt, debris, animal droppings, mold, moisture, and more to determine whether cleaning is necessary.
How your ducts are cleaned makes a difference.
The EPA recommends cleaning your air ducts only as needed–without an inspection, you don’t know when there is mold growth or other harmful contaminants inside!
THE DUCT CLEANING PROCESS
- We start by removing all of your register covers and cleaning them thoroughly to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants.
- Our duct cleaning experts will insert the hose and rotating brush head into your ductwork.
- After the ducts are scrubbed clean, we fog them with an EPA-registered antimicrobial mist that leaves a pleasant scent behind.
Don’t just stop with air duct cleaning!
Here are some tools that provide cleaner air. With cleaner air, you not only get the benefits of breathing in the clean air–you also get to protect your equipment! Cleaning your HVAC equipment can help extend its life and avoid breakdowns.

TRANE CLEAN EFFECTS
Asthma & allergy friendly® Certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
With more than 60 million Americans suffering from asthma and allergies, this certification mark guides consumers in identifying products more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark is awarded only to those products that that are scientifically proven to reduce exposure to asthma and allergy triggers.
Standard air cleaners have filters that are very dense, so they stop the dust by trapping it in a slightly porous filter. The fewer the pores, the more dust it can trap. However, this not only stops the dust and dirt, but it also stops the air from moving, as well. So, you may not be as comfortable, and less air is cleaned efficiently. This is called pressure drop. The revolutionary Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency possible.
Small particles, large effects
Particles like dust, smoke, and bacteria are often .3 microns or less. At that size, allergens can get deep into your lungs because they aren’t filtered well by your nose and throat. An effective Trane air cleaner, such as Trane CleanEffects™, can reduce the presence of potential asthma and allergy attack triggers in your home, like dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, most tobacco smoke, cooking grease, and even bacteria.
The Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner utilizes patented, breakthrough air cleaning technology to remove up to an astounding 99.98% of airborne allergens from the air that pass through the filter. It catches particles as small as .1 micron, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room filters and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1-inch filter.
Verified by Harvard experts
Trane CleanEffects™ has been performance-tested by LMS Technologies and Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), with the results verified by professors from the Harvard School of Public Health, so you know you are getting an air cleaner for your home like no other.
