    • 10-12 million Canadians suffer from Asthma. (Canadian College of Allergists)

    • Children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air. (Department of Consumer Affairs)
    • Most commercially available fiberglass furnace filters are less than 7% efficient. (ASHRAE)
    • Studies have shown that two out of three indoor air quality problems involve the HVAC/Air Duct System.
    • The major source of various persistent "musty" or "stale" odors are contaminated air ducts, furnaces or air conditioners.
    • “Constantly dirty house syndrome”, a condition when all furniture in the house gets quickly covered by dust shortly after cleaning, is directly caused by  dirty air ducts.
    • Dirty air ducts are major sources of dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants. They are also an ideal breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes.
    • Regular removal of contaminants from the entire HVAC/Air Duct system is widely recognized and recommended by industry experts as the most effective way to eliminate air duct pollutants.

"I have two large and expensive antique rugs which I inherited from my grandmother. Keeping the rugs clean is very important, as I have two young children and I was worried about them breathing all the dirt that the rugs accumulated over the years. My neighbour gave me the number for COMFORTCLEAN, for which I am very greatful. They were very pleasant to deal with and very professional. All I had to do was call them and 2 people came. They cleaned both rugs and repaired a damaged corner on one of them. They brought the rugs wrapped in plastic and when they unrolled them, I literally started screaming! When my husband came from upstairs and asked, What happened? All I could say is, Look these new rugs I have! SOOOO HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE!!!"
