The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Office of Research and Development (ORD) and the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, Inc. (NADCA) are actively engaged in research that is designed to focus on important issues related to source management/control and indoor air quality (IAQ) and their relationship to the air duct cleaning (ADC) industry. The paper presents the results from a pilot field study that was performed by the ORD in association with the NADCA. The field study was conducted in nine residential dwellings and was intended to improve our understanding of the effectiveness of ADC and its impact on residential IAQ and system performance.
