Most homeowners in Canton, OH, know how concerning poor indoor air quality is to their comfort, health and HVAC efficiency.

Over time, these particle pollutants collect in the ductwork and form layers of buildup that harbor other contaminants that can impact your indoor air quality. People with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders and environmental allergies are especially susceptible to experiencing symptoms and negative health effects.
