Our air duct cleaning process is state-of-the-art with successful results – customer after customer. We deploy advanced air duct cleaning technology with the only self-contained method that simultaneously brushes and vacuums the debris. Dirt is brushed loose inside the air duct and immediately swept up by powerful dual vacuums.

AIR DUCT CLEANING – STEP BY STEP:

  • Removal and cleaning of registers.
  • Technician cleans supply vents all the way to the air handler.
  • Dirt and debris is brushed, collected and swept up by the dual vacuum system.
  • Optimum coverage is ensured as technician works back through the system, overlapping much of the ductwork
  • Vacuum attachment topically cleans inside the air handler.
  • Air handler fan is turned on and antimicrobial treatment is fogged into cold air return.
  • Fan circulates treatment deep into the system.

AIR DUCT CLEANING – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Why Should I Clean My Air Ducts?
    • Dirty air ducts have been identified as a major source of indoor air pollution. Your air duct system is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, mold, mildew, fungi, and other health threatening organisms. Dust mites don’t typically live and breed in the ducts themselves. However, dirty air ducts distribute the primary food source for dust mites – dust
  • Will My House Be Less Dusty After You Clean The Air Ducts?
    • Yes, the inside of your duct work is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the ductwork gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home
  • Will Air Duct Cleaning Help My Allergies?
    • Many people are allergic to dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in ductwork. Remove the debris and remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing particulate debris in your ducts, there are less dust particles and potential allergens in the air to aggravate those with respiratory illnesses
  • I Live In A New Home, Do I Still Need Your Service?
    • Absolutely! Up to 50% of air duct system cleaning is done in homes that are less than five years old. During construction, the ductwork is wide open and the air handler is running many times without a filter. During this time, construction debris such as pieces of plaster, drywall, wood, dust, insects and insulation, are accumulated in the ductwork
  • How Will I Know If My Air Ducts Need To Be Cleaned?
    • By using a video inspection system, our technicians can show you how dirty your system is. It can also show you the “before” and “after” of your duct cleaning, so you know that it’s a job well done
  • Will Your Equipment Work In My Air Ducts?
    • The equipment we use to clean the air ducts is effective in all types of air duct construction, including flex duct, round metal ducts, square metal ducts, and fiberboard. It can easily accommodate right angle turns and multiple bends found in most types of duct systems

Dryer Vent Cleaning

dryer-vent-cleaningCleaning your lint screen is simply not enough to ensure an efficient, safe dryer. Even a cleaned lint screen traps only 75% of the lint produced inside a dryer. The rest of the lint builds up over time inside the dryer vent, becoming a fire hazard, as dryer lint is highly flammable and has the potential to ignite at any time.

A dryer with restricted airflow also runs significantly longer, causing utility costs to rise, increasing the need for repairs and decreasing the life of the dryer. By cleaning your dryer vent, we can help ensure your clothes dryer is both safe and energy efficient.

DRYER VENT CLEANING – STEP BY STEP:

  • Technician removes and cleans lint trap
  • Technician takes the measurement of airflow using an airflow meter at the exterior dryer vent.
  • The back of the dryer is topically cleaned, as this is where lint can accumulate.
  • The dryer vent and flexible ducting from the wall are visually inspected using a video inspection system.
  • The HEPA vacuum system is connected to the dryer vent duct. The dryer duct auger is run through the duct to remove any blockages.
  • Airflow is measured again to gauge improvement before and after cleaning.
  • The video inspection system is used again for post cleaning inspection.

DRYER VENT CLEANING – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • Does Cleaning My Dryer Vent Lower My Energy Bills?
    • Yes, by having your dryer vent professionally cleaned, your clothes dryer will run more efficiently. Your dryer will not have to run as long, lessening the wear and tear on your dryer, reducing your need for repair and lengthening the life of your dryer
  • Can I Clean My Dryer Vent On My Own?
    • Although a homeowner can clean dryer vents, it is advised that you consult a professional. Most homeowners don’t have the special equipment required to do a thorough job. A professional has special tools such as video inspection equipment to give a visual of the hard-to-reach areas of the dryer vent system
  • How Do I Know If My Dryer Vent Needs To Be Cleaned?
    • Using the following as a checklist, you can get a good idea if your dryer vent is in need of cleaning:
      • Loads of clothing are taking longer to dry.
      • Clothing is very hot and still damp when dryer finishes (especially heavy items especially, such as towels).
      • The dryer itself feels hotter.
      • There may be no lint on the lint screen (i.e. the exhaust system is clogged).
  • How Often Should My Dryer Vent Be Cleaned?
    • According to the U.S. Fire Administration the dryer vent should be cleaned and inspected on average every two to three years. This will help ensure the exhaust system is clean, as well as help reduce the risk of a dryer vent fire.
