HVAC Duct Cleaning Awareness – NADCA’s Breathing Clean Initiative
Baxter Group, Inc. is excited about getting involved in the National Air Duct Cleaners Association’s Breathing Clean Initiative. This initiative is aimed to educate building and home owners about the role of HVAC and air duct cleaning as a way to promote indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
With the average person breathing 3,400 gallons of air each day it is crucial to take measures to ensure we are breathing clean air. Breathing Clean will educate about the benefits of complete air duct cleaning and will focus on combating fraudulent air-duct cleaning companies and scammers.
Inspecting HVAC air ducts should be a part of your regular preventative maintenance program, including changing filters and vacuuming registers. Air duct cleaning should be scheduled immediately when the inspection reveals any of the following:
- Substantial visible mold growth,
- Infestation of rodents or insects,
- Excessive amounts of dust and debris, and/or
- Particle-release from the supply registers.
