Ductwork Contaminants in Tampa, FL

If you think your ductwork may be contaminated, it’s important to call for professional duct cleaning in Tampa, FL. Here are some of the most common contaminants that we find in ductwork:

  • Pests. Much more than just a contaminant, insects and rodents can seriously damage your ducts by building obstructive nests and penetrating the ductwork. If you have recently had a pest control company remove unwanted insects and rodent from your home, make sure you also schedule a duct cleaning with us.
  • Dust. There is some controversy about whether dust can be harmful to your health or not, but it certainly can irritate your allergies and pose problems for homeowners with asthma or other respiratory issues. Moreover, excessive dust build-up in ducts can accumulate and even the slightest amounts can significantly impact the energy-efficiency of your cooling and heating systems.
