Do I need air duct cleaning?

Indoor air quality is often a concern that many homeowners have when deciding on air duct cleaning services. In a typical home, large amounts of dust will be created from just everyday living. We generate a large amount of air pollutants and contaminants such as chemicals, dust and dander. All of these contaminants get pulled into your HVAC system and get re-circulated repeatedly throughout the day as your unit runs. This re-circulation will cause those contaminants to build-up in your duct work over time.

Air Duct Cleaning Residential duct cleaning Services

Most people are now aware that indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern and increased visibility. Regular cleaning of heating/cooling air ducts is a service that may greatly impact your home's indoor air quality and the comfort of family members - especially those with certain respiratory and health conditions. While having dirty ducts doesn't necessarily mean you have unhealthy air circulating through your home or business, dirty ducts can harbor contaminants that could lead to serious health problems for those who suffer from allergies, autoimmune disorders as well as other health related conditions.
Duct cleaning includes the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing. A thorough air duct cleaning job includes all components of the heating and cooling system, cleaned by a technician that is trained and qualified to perform this service.
Visible vermin, such as rodents or insects - or evidence of their droppings - indicate the need for duct cleaning services Visible mold indicates a moisture problem. Mold can cause allergic reactions and discomfort in many people. If you have insulated air ducts and the insulation gets wet or moldy it cannot be effectively cleaned and should be removed and replaced. If the conditions causing the mold growth in the first place are not corrected, mold growth will recur.
Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits of the cleaning service. For example, an inadequate vacuum collection system can release more dust, dirt, and other contaminants than if you had left the ducts alone. A careless or inadequately trained service provider can damage your ducts or heating and cooling system, possibly increasing your heating and air conditioning costs or forcing you to undertake difficult and costly repairs or replacements, according the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
If anyone in your household suffers from allergies or unexplained symptoms or illnesses, a visual inspection of the inside of the ducts may indicate your air ducts are contaminated with large deposits of dust or mold and duct cleaning is recommended. While it is normal for the return registers to get dusty as dust-laden air is pulled through the grate, visible dust deposits inside the ducting means it's time to give us a call. (Also, note that many sections of your heating and cooling system may not be accessible for a visible inspection, so ask our inspection services are available for a more more thorough analysis of your duct system.)
If not properly installed, maintained, and operated, HVAC components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth such as mold is increased. Spores from such growth may be released into the home's living space, causing allergic reactions or other symptoms in some people who are exposed to them. Duct cleaning methods involve use of specialized tools to dislodge dirt and other debris in ducts, which are then vacuumed out with a high-powered vacuum cleaner.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Dryer vents need to be cleaned!

Dryer lint is extremely flammable. In fact, clothes dryers cause many more home fires each year than chimney fires do. Cleaning the lint trap on your dryer is only part of the maintenance needed, but please remember to clean it with every load of clothes.
If you notice that your dryer is slow to dry your clothes, a clogged dryer vent exhaust is likely to blame. This may simply be a buildup of lint, but birds and small animals love to build nests in dryer vents, which then obstructs the dryer vent's ability to vent the lint outside. The dryer begins to work harder to do its job of evacuating lint and moisture and can become overheated, then sparking a fire beneath the dryer that quickly spreads to the dryer vent, and a quick and devastating home fire can then ensue.
The venting method on your dryer can make a big difference in safety and performance as well. Flexible aluminum pipe and plastic pipe ARE NOT CODE COMPLIANT and should be replaced, as these materials deteriorate quickly and are more easily crushed during installation, which reduces the venting capacity. Never allow a dryer vent exhaust to terminate under the house or inside the attic space.
Dryer vent cleaning requires the use of specialized brushes and other equipment to do a thorough job that doesn't damage your system. After cleaning your dryer exhaust system, air flow gauges show improved air flow for optimum performance.
Some dryers are installed with very short runs of pipe that can be cleaned relatively easily by the homeowner, but complicated installations usually need special, professional style equipment. Call us today to inspect and clean your dryer exhaust system for optimum safety and performance.
