Sears Asthma and Allergies

Allergens are present in homes year round. Allergens are more likely to proliferate in homes where no precautions have been taken to control their dispersion, and in homes that do not invest in professional cleaning proven to reduce allergens. Carpet can act as a trap for allergens, and if not properly maintained and cleaned, your carpeting can release allergens throughout the year. Likewise, your air ducts accumulate several pounds of dust each year, continually recirculating that dust while your HVAC unit runs.

For professional home cleaning that can significantly reduce allergen levels in your home, consider Sears Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning. Our staff of trained, background-checked employees use professional cleaning equipment to rid homes of dust and debris in a way ordinary home cleaning can’t. Whether it’s carpet cleaning you’re interested in, or if you’d like air duct cleaning to rid your ducts of the many pounds of dust that have gathered over the years, the Sears team is on the job.
