There are high amounts of dust particles and other debris that circulate through the breathing air of a home and eventually accumulate within the air duct system. In fact, the EPA estimates that the average home can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust per year. The dust that gathers within the air duct system can decrease the efficiency of the system and get redistributed each time it kicks on, sending the dust particles back into the breathing air of the home where they can pose health risks. ServiceMaster DAK Enterprises provides professional air duct cleaning services to homes and businesses in Arlington Heights.
