Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles—usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals—can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of 100 to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.
Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
In spite of their name, the technicians at Fresh Air concern themselves with more than just purifying homes' breathing spaces. While they take special care to clear air ducts of sneeze-inducing dust, pollen, and cat burglars armed with a feather, the team is equally keen on keeping homes safe from fire hazards. Using professional equipment, they ensure dryers vent their hot air smoothly by removing built-up lint, and they send sweepers through chimneys to scrub away flammable creosote.
To keep air safe and free of allergens, Jersey Duct Busters clears dust, hair, mildew, and soot from ducts, vents, and chimneys using its truck-mounted equipment, high-pressure cleaning kits, and industrial chemicals. To prevent fire hazards, its techs sweep chimneys free of creosote and give dryer vents and furnaces careful attention, increasing their energy efficiency in the process.
The HVAC medics at Service Professionals keep domestic heating and air-conditioning appliances humming smoothly with installations, repairs, and thorough, multipoint tune-ups carried out the day of the call. They also provide a one-year guarantee on all plumbing, heating, and air-conditioning services to ensure customer satisfaction. When staff members aren't tweaking mechanical systems, they help customers to improve their indoor air and water quality by installing filters and making sure there are no skunk nests in the heating ducts.
It's hard to clean air directly. So instead, Advanced Air Duct Solution's team of highly trained technicians cleans ventilating systems and ductwork. At both homes and offices, they use a 10-step process that relies on negative air pressure to clear ducts of dust, secondhand smoke, and residual vapors from cleaning products. They apply a similar process to chimneys too, stripping away buildup and any scraps of red velour left by Santa Claus.
Like the inner reaches of your navel, air ducts need to be cleaned, even if you can't see them. That's where the team from Duct Scrub comes in. Air vents accumulate dust, dirt, mold, and bacteria, and each time your HVAC system kicks on, these particles dance through the air, potentially aggravating allergies and respiratory problems. Duct Scrub's technicians eliminate debris and toxins from ducts and dryer vents—even chimneys—to ensure the best possible air quality while increasing homes' energy efficiency.
