What to Expect from Indoor Air Quality

Mold, mildew, bacteria, pollen and dust are present in almost every home. When left unchecked, these allergens can negatively impact the health and comfort of your family. The indoor air quality (IAQ) service experts at Master Services have solutions to combat household allergens and prevent their growth. By utilizing whole-house air cleaners, source removal duct cleaning and whole-house humidity control systems, we have the tools and knowledge to provide our customers with a healthy environment for their home. Call Master Services today to schedule an appointment with an IAQ professional.


 The Uncomfortable Truth

Alarming reports from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), have revealed that the average U.S. home contains more pollutants than the air outside. The uncomfortable truth is that since 1970, homes have been constructed tighter in order to conserve energy, but in many cases this has compromised the ventilation – and the IAQ. Pollutants and allergens (which appear in two forms: biological and chemical) can get trapped inside the home, directly affecting the health and comfort of the household. Toxic mold, asbestos and carbon monoxide are just a few of the toxins that are prevalent in modern homes today.

Professional Solutions

The good news is that the three basic strategies outlined by the EPA have proven to reduce and even eliminate many of the most common pollutants. Source Control, Improved Ventilation and Air Cleaners are all recommended solutions for combating toxins from residential and commercial indoor air. Master Services has products and strategies that encompass all three of the outlined EPA IAQ solutions. We can help you aggressively combat both forms of pollutants: biological and chemical, including:

  • Toxic Mold
  • Asbestos (and other Hazardous Materials)
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Lead
  • Bacteria
  • Cockroaches
  • Pollen
  • Fungi
  • Radon
  • House Dust Mites
  • Cat Saliva
  • Dander

Importance of HVAC Maintenance

We highly recommend that our customers receive regular checkups on their central air systems to ensure healthy IAQ and that any problems are addressed before they become serious. Simple routine maintenance can help you avoid contaminated air cycles, dirty ductwork and expensive repairs that may catch you off guard in the future. If you haven’t had your central air system serviced in the last 12 months, you should schedule an appointment soon. Annual HVAC maintenance twice a year (for both heating and cooling units) will help ensure healthy indoor air and system longevity.

Air Duct Contamination

In today’s air-tight homes, Indoor Air Quality is a growing concern. Most household dust contains dust mites, mold, mildew, pollen and animal dander. Many of these contaminants are circulated through the central air systems in most homes and can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and allergies.

How can these contaminants be removed from the air duct system? Our professionals have combined their proven techniques with the video-assisted ROTOBRUSH® air duct cleaning system. This advanced cleaning method is the only one available that brushes and vacuums at the point of contact, eliminating the use of harsh chemicals such as sealers. You are left with the assurance of fresh, clean and virtually contaminant-free air in your home and office.

Here's how it works

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3!

1. We clean the register covers to remove cooking oil film, nicotine film and other dust-collecting substances.

2. We deep clean the source of the air supply including (where applicable) the blower, squirrel cage, coils, condensation pan and return air supply.

3. The air ducts are then brush vacuumed clean with our exclusive, patented ROTOBRUSH-1. The ROTOBRUSH removes the contaminants that circulate through the air duct system. We will sanitize your air ducts and vents with an environmentally-safe sanitizer commonly used in hospitals and nursing homes, leaving behind a fresh scent.

The powerful yet flexible ROTOBRUSH easily cleans all types of air duct construction (e.g., flex duct, round metal ducts, square metal ducts, fiberboard) including right angle turns, reducers and multiple bends found in most types of duct systems.

The all-seeing Roto-Vision shows you where the trouble spots are and verifies the job was done right!
