It Is Time to Schedule Your Air Duct Cleaning in Lexington

Cleaning It Is Time to Schedule Your Air Duct Cleaning in Lexington Residential Air Duct System

Spring has sprung and it is time to clean out the funk of the winter here in Lexington, Mass. The temperature will rise above 75 degrees today, and when it does, we will all be thinking about turning on our air conditioners.


Is there anything worse than the blast of foul air and dust that emerges the first time you turn on your car air conditioner in the spring? How about the air that comes from your central air system?

Health Risks

Dust and other allergens are lurking in your duct work. Dust can contain:

  • Skin cells
  • Pollen
  • Molds
  • Fungus
  • Bacteria
  • Mites

For some people, especially those with asthma and other health issues, the dust in duct work can be harmful if circulated in the home. The NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaning Association) states that we should clean our duct work because of human health concerns, energy management, and indoor environmental concerns. Cleaning your ducts can lower the costs of utility bills, and allergy and asthma sufferers can be helped when ducts are cleaned.

SERVPRO® to the Rescue

SERVPRO® provides air duct cleaning services that may differ from other companies. Instead of just cleaning the registers with a vacuum, our franchise professionals put the entire system under negative pressure. We cut into the supply line and return and connect a commercial negative air machine, which creates negative pressure. We then pull the air through the system, and the negative pressure contains the dust. This push/pull process is the most efficient way to clean the air ducts and insure that the system is thoroughly cleaned.

Call SERVPRO® of Lexington-Bedford today to schedule your duct cleaning  and improve your home’s air quality before you turn on the air conditioning this year. Breathe healthy, Lexington!
