Air Duct Cleaning
Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from poor air quality in their household and/or workplace? This means that 20% of every home, office, and building you walk into has substandard air quality.
Why is this important to you?
Because HVAC systems carry harmful substances mixed with dust, dirt, and other outside foreign particles. Which can be harmful to your health, and even promote asthma, fevers, and allergies. Remember that the same air is circulated through your house dozens of times per day.
When your heating and cooling system circulates air properly, you can enjoy consistent temperature in your interior during all times of the year.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
This shocking statistic comes directly from the U.S Fire Department. According to their records, between the years 2010-2014, on average there 15,970 fires caused by a washing machine or dryer. 1/3 of these fires is caused by an accumulation of lint in the dryer vent. To the tune of 444 injuries and $238 million of property damage, a clogged dryer vent can be dangerous to your family and your wallet.
Now lets put those sobering statistics to the side and talk about what we can do for you about this issue. We recommend that your dryer vent is cleaned by a professional at least once per year. Our team will make sure every corner of your dryer vent, lint trap, and the hose is unclogged so you can safely wash and dry clothes.
Just check out the photo on the right and you’ll see how much lint can be inside of your dryer vent after years and years of buildup. This lint with heat generated by a dryer is flammable.
Our Air Duct Cleaning Process
With decades of air duct cleaning experience, we have a simple four-step process from the moment you pick up the phone to cleaning the last vent.
Most frequent questions and answers
Breathing is a basic human function we perform every second of every day. As we continue to spend more and more time indoors, the air we’re supplied from indoor ventilation systems becomes of increased importance.
According to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is actually more polluted than outdoor air. How can this be? One reason is that the indoors is a smaller space compared to the outdoors, so there’s less air available to become diluted.
Also, like our breathing, air ducts work 24/7 leaving more chance for them to become polluted over time.
So what is our air becoming diluted with?
The list is almost endless, but we’ll try to list out as much of the unwanted particles as we can:
- Rodent droppings
- Pet hair
You never really know what you’re going to find inside of an air duct until you take a look inside. We’ve found things as crazy as dead chipmunks and even money.
Imagine paying for air duct cleaning and actually making money from it?
Over time, these nasty particles build-up inside your air ducts making the air you breathe a breeding ground for sickness causing organisms which are circulated through your home 24/7.
The bottom line is air duct cleaning is important and should be performed at least every 2-3 years for a healthier home and family.
If you have pets or children with allergies, it’s recommended that cleaning is performed by a professional more often.
There are multiple benefits to getting your air ducts cleaned, here are just a few of them:
- Fresh Indoor Air: The air you breathe inside your home is most likely to become contaminated because of how tightly confined homes, rooms, and air ducts are. When your air ducts are cleaned properly, the build-up of allergens, dirt, and bacteria inside your air ducts is removed and you can enjoy fresh, healthier air.
- Less Irritation: Dust, mold, pet dander, animal droppings, and fungi can irritate your eyes and airways. This effect is increased if you or someone you live with has asthma or allergies. Air duct cleaning can provide almost immediate relief.
- Cleaner Home: If you noticed you always find dust buildup around the little nooks and crannies of your home, your first instinct may be to just vacuum, dust, and sweep more often. Unfortunately, this is just a bandaid fix as dust which circulates through your air vents will eventually settle in your home unless it’s cleaned out.
- Lower Energy Bill: Your air ducts job is to force warm or cool air through the air ducts to control the temperature of your home. If dirty buildup is blocking the path of the air, your HVAC system will simply have to work harder to get the job done. Naturally, cleaning your air ducts means your HVAC system can save you a lot of money on your energy bill since a clean system runs more efficiently than a dirty one.
Our process includes using a combination of high-powered vacuums and brushes to suck up particles and deny them the chance of recirculating in your home.
But before all that happens, the first thing our technicians will do when they arrive at your home is cut access holes into your HVAC system. These holes are to accommodate our vacuum hoses which will run into our collection unit.
Our technicians will use pressurized air to push debris, dust, and dirt into the main air vent where it can easily be removed by our powerful vacuum systems.
Throughout this process, no contaminates will be released into your home, instead, they will all be collected.
The last stem is a final inspection and resealing of the vent system since we cut holes into it. Our job is considered done when there are no leftover unwanted particles in your HVAC system.
There are a few signs you’ll want to look out for if your air ducts need to be cleaned. First, you’ll need to simply open up your air vent covers and take a look inside.
How does it look? Look for dirt, debris, and must.
Next, pull off the air filter. If it’s clogged with dust, this is a tell-tale sign you need to get your air ducts cleaned.
The last two places you want to look is the furnace compartment and air conditioning coil.
As you may have noticed after reading about our process, cleaning an HVAC system is a delicate process which can either go really bad or really well. This 100% depends on the training of the person cleaning the system.
Unfortunately, you can’t just remove the air vent cover and let your vacuum hose do the work. This can cause damage to your HVAC system and in the process will reach the hard to reach corners only an experienced technician knows how to reach without causing damage.
At the risk of having to replace a costly system which heats and cools your home, you’re always better off paying a professional to do the job for you while you sit back and spend your time doing something more productive.
