Take Action to Improve Air Quality in Every Room!
Have you noticed a increased amount of dust in your home? Is this season causing allergies in your family? These could be air quality problems symptomatic of contamination via the gaps in your ductwork. Sealing a home’s air ducts results less dust, less allergies, and cleaner air. Watch the video below to find out if leaks in your ductwork could be the source of excessive dust and allergies.
“Typical duct systems lose 25 to 40 percent of the heating or cooling energy put out by the central furnace, heat pump or air conditioner. Duct repairs could be the most important energy improvement measure you can do.” –U.S Department of Energy
Our Aeroseal specialists Bill and Eric recently sealed the air ducts of a home in Rochester Hills greatly improving their indoor air quality and annual energy cost.
We show each of our Aeroseal customers this comprehensive report so they have a visual representation of their improved air efficiency and energy costs. Click on the images for a closer look.

Safety King is credited in the rehabilitation of this Detroit home
The upcoming This Old House episode “Fixing the Fascia” features the home where Safety King worked with This Old House to revitalize a Detroit home. This episode originally airs on PBS nationally at 8pm on May 4th, 2017. You can look up your zip code here to find out when the episode will air locally.
“At the Grandmont Rosedale project, a new exterior wall goes up from the inside. In Russell Woods, Scott Caron and local electrician Shane Masters rough-in new kitchen wiring. Richard finds Joe Burke installing a brand new HVAC system before heading to Flint, MI to learn about the ongoing crisis that has residents without clean water. Back at the house, Tommy, Frank and local contractor Josh Engle install more substantial fascia in preparation for new gutters.”
Safety King went into the home and cleaned out the air ducts while the house’s outdated HVAC system was being replaced. It is a good idea to have the air ducts cleaned around the same time as a furnace replacement to keep your new equipment clean and efficient.
Episodes can also be viewed on Create Network as well as streamed through the PBS app on Apple TV and Roku boxes. Or just click the button below to watch full episodes online!

Minute with Mike: Interviews with Safety King’s Founder
Safety King’s Founder, Michael S. Palazzolo, recently did an interview with Charles Ellison on the Air Duct Cleaning Training Podcast. During their talk, Mike emphasizes the importance of smiling while talking with someone on the phone.
A good relationship begins with positive communication and most of our first impressions with people occur on the phone.
Body language is heard, even if its not seen. Even faking a smile changes the tone of your voice and emotions are contagious. People subconsciously try to match the energy of their peers so your smile has the power to influence the moods of the people around you.

PBS’s Detroit Project
The Detroit Project is an initiative by Detroit’s community and PBS’s This Old House to help improve neighborhoods one house at a time. You can see how a renovation of this scale is done by watching season 36 of This Old House which begins airing on March 30th.
Safety King is glad to have contributed our air duct cleaning service to PBS’s Detroit Project. As a result, the air will be as fresh as the house once renovations are complete.
Another way to get a sneak peak at the Detroit house’s progress in a gallery article on The Detroit News. Here, you can read about the process and see before and after pictures of the outside of the building.
The renovations to this Detroit house airs on PBS’s This Old House soon, mark your calendars!

The best way to improve a community is one house at a time
Episode 3 of PBS’s Detroit. One House at a Time is available to watch now for free! The digital series will show you behind the scenes of the This Old House episodes set in Detroit. Those This Old House episodes will premiere on PBS on March 30th or on Detroit Public Television (channel 56) on Monday, April 3rd.
As part of the Detroit home’s rehabilitation, Safety King donated an air duct cleaning to clear decades of dust out of the house’s lungs. It is especially important to have the air ducts cleaned after a lot of in-home construction because particles like drywall and sawdust love to accumulate in the air ducts and then spread around the house once the HVAC system is activated.
As stated in the Daily Detroit, we couldn’t believe the difference of how the house looks now versus how it looked when we went out to clean the air ducts. We’re excited to see the process of the full transformation when the house is shown on This Old House in April!
