You Can “Breathe Easy”…By Keeping Your Air “In The Pink!”

10/7/2020 (Permalink)

Duct cleaning is one of the most overlooked maintenance items; image of orange rubber gloves. We think about “dusting & cleaning” other parts of our space…but what about the ducts that carry the air you BREATHE?!?

Let’s face it, given the current climate, we have all become acutely aware of “cleanliness”…whether it’s in our homes, offices, schools and retail spaces. So we douse everything in hand sanitizer, meticulously spray and wipe every surface we may come into contact with, and steam clean masks and outerwear. BUT – have you thought about the quality of the air you breathe every day?!?

Try thinking about that for a minute. Kinda makes it hard to “breathe easy,” right? RELAX! A professional air duct cleaning is just the prescription you need. It’s ironic how much care we take with cleaning other things in our life, yet we don’t give a second thought to the dust, allergens, spores and pet dander in the air we literally blast into every corner of our lives.

You’ve seen what your filters look like after you do your regular changes. Now, imagine all those microscopic particles that STILL lurk in your ductwork. Air blowing tends to run in a fairly focused path through those ducts…leaving the corners, crevices and sharp twists virtually untouched, where all sorts of “interesting” things can dig in. YIKES!!!

It reminds us of all those pink “healthy” versus grey “dirty” lung pictures we’ve seen over the years. And, if you think about it, your air ducts are the pulmonary system of every interior (and, here in Texas, some exterior) space in our lives. And considering EVERYTHING in our air, that’s a lot to ask one little filter to handle!

So in the spirit of “thinking pink” this October, WE want to help keep you “breathing easy” and your air “in the pink!” For the entire month, SERVPRO of Northwest San Antonio is offering 15% OFF air duct cleanings…PLUS a donation to the local Susan G. Komen Foundation of $20 per residential and $50 per commercial job for the entire month October.

If you need even more of a “win-win” scenario, consider this. With our negative pressure professional vacuum process, coupled with specially-designed “scrub brushes” to completely scour the interior of ductwork and dislodge all those lurking contaminants, you EXTEND the life of your HVAC system AND save money on monthly bills due to increased unit efficiency!

Not only do you benefit, but doing something to enhance the quality of your health ALSO benefits the health and well-being of those facing the diagnosis and aftermath of breast cancer. We want to genuinely put the “pink” into #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth…with healthy air, healthy lives, healthier and happier communities.

Honestly, we can’t think of a better way “think pink” in October…while making sure a LOT of people can “breathe easy” – not just this month, but all year long!
