Air Duct and Dryer Vent Cleaning
Duct cleaning refers to cleaning all forms of cooling and heating system components, including the supply and return air ducts and registers. If your air ducts were improperly installed or near a source of moisture there is an increased risk of contamination with dust, pollen, or mold. Mold growth in your air ducts or vents may cause spores to be released into your home’s living space and result in a greater problem. We will use specialized equipment to dislodge and vacuum up the dirt and debris from your air ducts. Give us a call for an assessment and cost estimate if you have concerns about the shape of your air ducts and vents.
The first step in the duct and vent cleaning process is inspecting the ducts. Our technicians will check for any leaks or kinks that may need to first be repaired. A truck-mounted vacuum device will be attached to your ducts, and all of the registers in your home will be covered, in order to ensure the dust and debris does not fill your home. A technician will then clean each duct one by one using specialized equipment to ensure the dust is dislodged and sucked into the vacuum. The last step includes cleaning the other components of your HVAC system.
Why It’s Important
If you live in an older home or if you have recently experienced significant water damage, having your vents and air ducts cleaned can ensure the safety of your home from the threat of mold. Having your ductwork cleaned can also help any asthma or allergy sufferers in your home. Dryer fires cause a number of house fires in the United States every year.
