Maintaining clean heating, ventilation and air- conditioning (HVAC) systems is an important part of sustaining acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). Properly performed air duct system cleaning services should take place to reduce or eliminate contaminant introduction. All of this should be performed by a NADCA certified specialist.

The most important step is to sanitize or “Fog Out” your HVAC system.

This process requires spraying a microbiological sanitizing agent throughout the entire system to potential kill any germs.
