Duct Cleaning

Here is some literature on why people should have their air ducts cleaned on a regular basis. 
Q: How often should air duct be cleaned?
A: The American Lung Association recommends regular cleaning and disinfecting of every part of a ventilating, heating or cooling system.  This includes humidifiers, dehumidifiers, air filters, air circulation blowers and air ducts.  Regular cleaning will not only eliminate certain health risks, it can increase the efficiency of air conditioning units by 30%.
Q: How often do air ducts get dirty?
A: Your central heating and air conditioning system provides an ideal environment for the growth of mold, dust and mildew.  As these air contaminates collect on the motor and fan, they are redistributed throughout your home, directly affecting the air you breathe.
Q: What health problems can dirty air ducts cause?
A: Air contaminants can aggravate allergies and hay fever, and perpetuate asma attacks.  On average we spend about 90% of our time indoors.  Children, pregnant women and the elderly who spend most of their time at home are especially susceptible to such risks.
