Remove Dust, Pollen, & Allergens

As a homeowner, one of your main priorities would be to make sure that your home is the safest, cleanest and most comfortable place for your entire family. The Scrub Team does more than carpets and upholstery, we also clean air ducts and dryer vents. Our air duct cleaning service and dryer cleaning is top notch. Did you know the average Before and After Air Ductsix-room home collects up to 40 pounds of dirt, dust, and allergens? Did you also know that dryer vents are at a high risk of causing a fire? These issues can be very problematic. Cleaning your air ducts and dryer vents regularly is very important to keep the air in your home clean and free of all allergens and prevent fires in the home. In just a few short years your ducts accumulate dirt, debris, mold, viruses, dust mites, and rodent droppings. You would want to ensure that your family is breathing clean air at all times.


Save Money on Utilities

Cleaning your air ducts will save you money. The build-up of dirt and debris prevents air from flowing freely throughout the ventilation system. That means that your HVAC unit is working harder to operate, costing you more on your energy bill. Save money on your electric bill today by cleaning out your air ducts. You can trust the experts at The Scrub Team to clean your vents like a professional. You will notice a difference in the quality of air in your home.


Benefits of cleaning your air ducts

  • Poor indoor air quality and some health issues may be directly related to mold and other irritants found inside your home's heating and cooling system.
  • Pollen, pet dander, dead insects, and rodent feces are common elements found in air ducts that can cause problems, especially for those suffering from asthma or allergies. Irritants accumulated in air ducts will be carried all over your living space whenever the air conditioning or the heater is turned on.
  • One out of six people that suffer from allergies do so because of fungi and bacteria in air duct systems. (TOTAL HEALTH AND BETTER HEALTH MAGAZINES) 10-12 million Americans suffer from Asthma. Children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air. (DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS)
  • Having your entire HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning) system cleaned by our trained professionals will help eliminate the presence of these harmful contaminants in your home.
  • According to the Fire Analysis and Research Division of the NFPA, clothes dryers are responsible for an estimated 14,100 home fires in the US, the leading cause being lack of maintenance. Our Dryer Vent Cleaning service will help reduce lint build up, which will not only result in increased safety in your home, but also in less wear on the clothing and less use of your electricity and/or gas.
  • The Scrub Team's air duct cleaning specialists are trained in the latest technology.


Dryer Vent Cleaning

Did you know that the dryer vent is the number 1 source of fire in the home? The reason is that built up lint in the dryer vent over time has a high chance of catching fire. According to a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report that was conducted in 1999 called "Report on Electric and Gas Clothes Dryers." This report determined that electric dryers are 2.5 times more likely to cause a fire than gas dryers. Prevent possible fires in your home today by cleaning out your dryer vent.
