Are you concerned that your ductwork is causing poor air quality in your home?
Before calling anyone to have your ducts cleaned, you must read the false narrative that the Duct Cleaning Industry has been pushing for decades:
“Do you know what lurks in your home air ducts? Every time you breathe the air in your home, you’re breathing some of the millions of germ-carrying dust and mold particles from your air ducts that cause allergies, asthma–even terminal illnesses.”
INX Indoor Air Quality has been proudly serving the residential community for over 20 years and have seen so many people fall victim to these fear mongering tactics.
Here’s the truth
In most cases, if you have an indoor air quality issue in your home, the ductwork is NOT the source of the problem.
Air duct cleaning
Air duct cleaning not only doesn’t improve your indoor air quality, it can make it worse! Why? Because the typical dust, dirt, and contaminants settled in your ductwork were not created in your ductwork, they came from your house. If there’s not a problem in your house, there’s typically not a problem in your ducts. Obviously, there are extremes, and some really good reasons to thoroughly clean your ductwork. A major problem in the “so-called professional” Duct Cleaning Industry is that many Philadelphia Area Residential Duct Cleaning Contractors are not doing a thorough job. They only remove about 60% to 70% of the contaminants out of the system.
This is due to improper technique, improper equipment, an/or insufficient access to the ductwork. So, when your system is turned back on, all the dust, dirt, mold spore, and other contaminants that were stirred up during cleaning, but not properly removed from the system, are now free to blow out of the duct and into your home thus making your indoor air quality worse.

Are you concerned that your Dryer Exhaust System isn’t running properly or more importantly, there might be a safety concern?
Everything starts with Inspection and Assessment. A quick assessment by a cleaning service technician is sufficient before they perform cleaning. The technician will evaluate the type of duct, length of duct, and the design of the exhaust system.
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) estimates 15,000 house fires that occur in the United States each year due to clogged dryer exhaust vents. This results in lives lost and property ruined and all for something so easy and inexpensive to prevent.
