Dealing with worse-than-normal seasonal spring allergy symptoms? If so, your household ductwork may be to blame — but professional duct cleaning can help you change that.

It can be hard to believe, but spring weather will be here faster than you think. It's not too early to start thinking about the allergies that come with the season. If you or someone in your family is prone to spring allergies, you probably know that you shouldn't open your windows to let the spring breezes come in and let the clean air out your home. Doing so could invite pollen and other allergens to enter your home and settle into places you can't see, such as your bedding, carpet, and furniture.

The length of the vent will determine how often and to what extent we need to clean it.

So many people find that they develop a stuffy nose within the first hour or two after being home. Some people attribute this to the fact that they are laying down and their nasal passages may clog up, but this is not likely the problem.
