Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
The average person breathes 3,400 gallons of air each day. Unfortunately, air isn’t all you’re inhaling. Mold spores, pollen, bacteria, dust and other particles exist in virtually all indoor air. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside a home can be 2-5 times more polluted than air outside.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
How It Works
Initially a Kosco trained Indoor Air Quality consultant will visit your home to inspect your duct work cleaning requirements. This will give you the opportunity ask specific questions and understand the benefits of having your duct work routinely cleaned. An estimate will be provided for approval after inspection.
The cleaning process is performed by professionally trained Kosco technicians using state-of-the-art environmentally friendly equipment.
The duct system is put under negative pressure with a powerful outdoor vacuum. Small holes are placed into existing duct work where various brushes are inserted into the ducts to dislodge debris, which flows to the vacuum. Once complete all holes are capped for future cleanings. Since vacuum equipment exhausts particles outside of the house, and inside-exhaust systems are fitted with HEPA filters this process is clean and safe. As a final step Kosco offers FREE sanitizing of your duct work, a non-residual sanitizing agent is applied to destroy any bacterial contaminants that may exist.
Kosco suggests that homeowners clean or replace air filters once a month for improved air quality and efficiency. If you’re like most Americans, you spend up to 90 percent of each day indoors – and more than half of that time at home.
