In October 1997, the EPA released an air duct cleaning report which tried to answer a simple question: “Should You Have the Air Ducts in Your Home Cleaned?”
The EPA’s answer then, and now, is equivocal: “knowledge about air duct cleaning is in its early stages,” the report stated, so “it is impossible to generalize about whether or not air duct cleaning in your home would be beneficial.”
The evidence was based on “studies,” which the EPA did not cite, that did not conclusively determine whether dirty air ducts can lead to poor indoor air quality or whether cleaning prevents health issues, like asthma or allergies.
Meanwhile, on a separate page about indoor air quality, the EPA notes that “a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air.”
G&G Indoor Air Services, a San Diego area air duct cleaning company, empowers all potential clients to learn the facts about indoor air quality and air duct cleaning. For most clients, the EPA poses the most important question: Is air duct cleaning beneficial?
However, when the EPA sends mixed messages, who can you trust?
The EPA’s duct cleaning report is twenty-years-old. Since then, the industry has evolved dramatically, yet “studies” about air duct leaning have not kept pace.
