Local DUCTZ Encourages Community Members to Make Vent Cleaning Part of The Routine

[Rockville Centre, NY] - With the spring comes not only warmer weather, but also the spring cleaning season. While most people clean out their closets and refrigerators, DUCTZ of WLI, the nation's premiere air duct, carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise is urging their community to think about more than that.

"Since houses are buttoned up during the winter months, the same stale air circulates through out the household leading to a buildup in the air vents," said John Falvey, owner of DUCTZ of WLI. "By making air vent cleaning part of the spring time routine, Long Island community members can be sure they have a higher indoor air quality, thereby reducing asthma and allergy symptoms."

Not only are the experts at DUCTZ encouraging air duct cleaning, but they also recommended that residents clean their dryer vents. With an unusual amount of snow hitting the country this year, there was an increase in the number of house fires, since the snow often can block air from properly escaping and causing a build up in the vent.

"It's not only important to clean vents to insure better indoor air quality, but it's also a safety measure to check both the air and dryer vents," added Falvey. Vents free from dust and dirt can also greatly reduce consumer costs when it comes to running an air conditioning unit in the summer months.

DUCTZ of WLI works with home and business owners to improve indoor air quality from the ground up. As a member of the National Air Duct Cleaner's Association (NADCA), Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) and Air Conditioning Contractors Association (ACCA), DUCTZ leads industry standards while providing microbial maintenance controls and chemical-free processes for reducing biological contaminants.
