Something that many Maryland homeowners might not be aware of is the pervasive presence of in-home, airborne pollutants. These pollutants—bacteria, mold spores, pollen, dander, and other irritants—build up over time in the air ducts of a home’s ventilation system and are circulated into the house whenever the heat or air is running. The impurities can trigger allergy attacks, complicate the conditions of asthma sufferers, and just make breathing in clean, fresh air more difficult for everybody. Fortunately there is a solution: hire a Best Pick™-certified Maryland/DC air duct cleaning company.
A qualified air duct cleaner will clean a home’s ductwork first by using an agitator to break up old buildup inside the ventilation system and then by applying a vacuum-like device to the system, removing the offending particles and leaving cleaner air ducts.
However, since Maryland and DC don’t require licenses to perform air duct cleaning, it’s important to know whether or not a duct cleaning contractor is well qualified. Hiring a non-reputable company could result in an amateurish job—ducts left dirty or even damaged—and that would mean money wasted. EBSCO Research talked to hundreds of homeowners in the Maryland/DC area with the goal of finding the best home improvement and repair companies, including air duct cleaners. Unbiased, third-party research means that no company may buy their way into being a Best Pick™, and that means homeowners will be sure they’re getting the best companies for their money.
