10 reasons to be concerned about your home’s Indoor Air Quality.
Has there been recent construction or remodeling in the home?
The construction and remodeling process often leaves lots of debris in the air duct system. This goes for both new construction and recently remodeled homes.
Are you trying to sell your home?
Freshly cleaned ducts could make your home more appealing to potential buyers!
Have you recently purchased your home?
You clean the rest of the house when you move in right? Don’t live with the former owner’s dirt in your ducts!
Does anyone in your home have allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues?
Dust, dander, and micro-organisms in your duct system can be circulated throughout your home and cause attacks from any of these conditions.
Does anyone in the home suffer from nasal or sinus congestion each night or morning?
Snoring can be another side-effect of a dusty home.
Are there smokers in the home?
If you or a former resident used to smoke within your home, the residue can still be circulated throughout your home for years to come.
Do you have dogs, cats or other pets?
Our furry little friends not only shed but can also carry in lots of dirt from outside the home. You can see it on your floors… trust us, it’s in your ducts too.
Does it seem like you’re always dusting the furniture?
An air duct system filled with dirt and debris can sometimes contaminate your home faster than you can clean it!
Do you notice any unusual odors when the heating or cooling system is running?
Odors can be a sign of something dangerous in your air ducts. We can do camera inspections to determine if there is something of concern in your system.
Are there young children or elderly living in your home?
People of these age groups are much more susceptible to airborne contaminants.
Mountain Duct Cleaning was great to work with from inquiry to invoice. Matt Mountain responded to my inquiry the same day with a competitive quote and advised the schedule. On cleaning day, Lucas arrived on-time and politely walked me through the process. He took before and after pictures to show the results. He also saved me some money by advising against some additional services (that I requested) based on his findings. I will use Mountain Duct Cleaning again.
I have never in my life been so impressed and grateful!! The two gentlemen were amazing and answered all my questions plus gave me tips. My vents were absolutely disgusting due to contractors being lazy and sweeping everything into the vents throughout my house. My son has been dealing with respiratory issues since November and my hope was this was the cause. Since the cleaning my son is no longer weezing or showing allergy symptoms. I am so thankful for their service and how quickly they scheduled me and completed the work. Multiple doctors and medications for my son are no longer a concern. He is doing amazing!!!!!! The price was super reasonable and I wouldn’t have been upset if I had paid more! The owner, Matt was also incredible. . Thank you guys so much!!
I highly recommend Mountain Duct Cleaning. Everything was so easy from initial communication to completion. Rick and Ty were my cleaning team. Rick has 18 years in the business and he likes working with the Mountain family so much he brought his son into the business! And these two were great; polite, respectful, super knowledgeable, thorough, and clean. I’ve had other duct cleaners in the past, but from now on I will only use the Mountain company. They are amazing! My house actually feels lighter and fresher! I know it’s healthier for my family, including our companion parrot.
