Regardless of the season, allergies wreak havoc on the lives of allergy sufferers. Pollen is heaviest during the spring and early autumn months, which means you ductwork is doing double duty to keep the air fresh and clean.

People who have never suffered allergies before may begin to experience allergy-like symptoms merely due to the buildup in your air ducts.
Mold spores, dust and mold accumulate in your ductwork over time, and with every air conditioning cycle is blown throughout your home. Without regular cleaning, allergy suffers and even individuals who don’t have allergies, may begin to experience respiratory symptoms such as stuffy nose, sore throat and itchy, watery eyes.
