Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I have my ducts cleaned?
The more prone to allergy symptoms the more often you will need the ducts cleaned. For most folks every two to three years is about right.
If I need my carpets cleaned should I have the ducts cleaned first or after?
You should always clean the ducts first followed by the carpets. The main reason for this is that I have to be able to access all of your registers to clean the ducts properly. If the carpets are wet at the time it increases the potential for a mishap. Donâ€™t forget to ask about our great discounts if you have the carpets and ducts cleaned on the same visit.
I have something large that is lodged in my duct; can you get it out during the cleaning?
Unfortunately some objects if they are heavy enough or large enough will not be easy removed with a standard air duct cleaning. The cleaning system is designed to use high speed/ high impact airflow to remove dust and light debris that is breathable and commonly recycled in your home. Large heavy items, for example a brick, will be passed over by the air flow. If you have a problem involving such a blockage, still give me a call I can always recommend the best course of action.
Do you offer HVAC repair, servicing, or cleaning?
I can perform a cleaning of the cold intake side of your furnace. However when it comes to cleaning your plenum and performing repair or servicing of your furnace, we recommend only using a licensed HVAC repair person. We have some great people we can recommend that we have worked with for years. So please ask if you are looking for a good referral.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Professional dryer duct cleaning can help your dryer work at peak efficiency, which can save money on energy bills. A clean dryer duct also makes your home safer by helping prevent dryer fires—and, for gas dryers, by helping prevent carbon monoxide from escaping from the duct into the home.
What Causes a Clogged Dryer Vent?
Dryer vents clog when enough lint accumulates in your ventilation system to cause a blockage. Dryer vents can clog in a variety of ways. For one, a lengthy distance on a dryer ventilation system increases the likelihood of bends and curves in the system, where lint is most likely to collect. Second, dryer ventilation tubes are made from pliable plastic or foil, which can be easily crushed or dented given enough pressure. Finally, a poorly connected ventilation or dryer vent screen can cause lint to trap. Some ventilation screens serve to prevent animals from accessing the ventilation, but these screens can also create a barrier for lint.
Why dryer ducts need to be cleaned
- A clogged dryer duct doesn’t allow moisture to vent to the outdoors as freely as it should. As a result, the dryer has to run longer to dry each load. That extra cycle time uses more energy and increases wear on your dryer.
- Lint that accumulates in dryers contributes to a third of the approximate 3000 dryer fires reported each year, according to the US Fire Administration. Hot air builds up in the vent when lint blocks airflow, and in some cases the air is hot enough to ignite the lint.
Why hire us to clean your dryer duct
As a homeowner, you can take steps to keep your dryer vent clean. Emptying your dryer’s lint trap after each load is essential. You can also detach the vent from the back of the dryer and use a vacuum or a long-handled appliance brush to clean the duct.
However, it’s difficult for brushing or vacuuming to get all the lint, especially if the vent tube is long, bends in several places, or has a ridged surface. We clean the full length of the duct, from the dryer to the outside of your home. We use special tools and high-pressure air to loosen lint from the duct and then collect the lint with the same powerful vacuums used to clean the air ducts in home heating and cooling systems.
