Air Ducts/Dryer Vent

Why should air ducts be cleaned?
"Dirty Airducts Are more Hazerdous to your Health than Outdoor Air"
In a typical six room home, up to 40 pounds of dust accumulates annually through everyday living. These contaminants such as air pollutants, dander, dust, chemicals, dead skin cells, etc. Your heating and cooling system acts as the lungs of your home inhaling and exhaling, and recirculates all these pollutants at least 5-7 times per day. Over time the re-circulation builds up in the duct work and can cause not only system problems but also very serious health issues, especially for people with respiratory health issues and environmental allergies.
Over the past two decades scientists have been examining the indoor air environment of our homes, and have found your home environment to be more hazardous to our health than the outdoor air. Statistics show that 1 out of 5 Americans suffer from allergies caused by substances found in the home. Deaths related to asthma have risen 40% in the last two decades as well.
Most standard disposable filters remove only about 10% of the everyday pollutants allowing 90% to enter the air system, even in a new home there are pollutants from construction. If these pollutants are not taken care of properly they will circulate back into the air or even possibly become a food source for bacteria and mold.
"Clean Air Ducts Increase Your Air Flow Efficiancy For Heating And Cooling While Lowering Your Utility Bill"
The dirty air that is re-circulating through your system will also cause a substantially higher energy bill. A system that is heavily contaminated will have to run much longer to cool or heat the occupied space, which will result in a high bill.
How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?  
A well operating system after initial cleaning should remain clean for3-4 years with proper home maintenance and a high arrestance filter installed. As stated above, a standard disposable filter only stops roughly 10% of pollution allowing 90% to continue to re-circulate. And also for protection against biological growth, an EPA registered biocide should be applied every 6-12 months by a qualified air duct cleaning company.

Airborne Contaminates Air Duct Cleaning

AIR DUCT PROCEDURES:

1. All vent covers and registers with supply and return ducts will be cleaned and sanitized (sporiciden EPA-approved).

2. Decontamination machines with negative airflow for pollen, dirt, mold and bacteria will be used. Machines have one pre-filter, one electrostatic filter and one HEPA filter, all to prevent contaminated items from being in the ambient indoor air.

3. All decontamination machines are updated every three years by Air-Care, a top air duct equipment company in the U.S.

Safe Air Duct Cleaning and Hypoallergenic Removal of Debris

4. A rotating brush on a 35-foot cable and a 50-foot cable will run through each duct to help remove dirt, mold, pollen and bacteria. This step is taken while the negative air machine is running.

5. All plenums will be sanitized and vacuumed.

6. Vacuums used for cleaning are fitted with HEPA filtration to help prevent cross contamination of the ambient air.

7. Drop cloths will be used near vents and work areas.

8. All techs have no less than five years of training in air quality control and air duct cleaning.

9. National Air Duct Cleaner Association standards will be used. We are a member of the Indoor Air Quality Association 

10. Chemicals and detergents with sanitizers used are EPA-approved and are standard for the cleaning industry.

Dirty Air Vent


​How often should I have my dryer vent cleaned out? Why?
Your dryer vent should be cleaned out once a year and also regularly services by an appliance repair company. You will start to notice when your dryer vent is getting clogged or air restricted if:
  • Clothing does not dry completely after a normal drying cycle.
  • Drying time for clothing takes longer than 35 to 40 minutes
  • A musty odor is noticed in the clothing following the drying cycle.
  • Clothing seems unusually hot to the touch after a complete drying cycle or outside of the dryer is also hot to the touch.
  • The dryer vent hood flap does not properly open as it is designed to do during the operation of the dryer.
  • Debris is noticed within the outside dryer vent opening.
  • Excessive heat is noticed within the room in which the dryer is being operated.
  • Large amounts of lint accumulate in the lint trap for the dryer during operation.
  • A visible sign of lint and debris is noticed around the lint filter for the dryer.
  • Excessive odor is noticed from dryer sheets that are used during the drying cycle.
Dryer vent fires are one of the top 5 leading causes of household fires. As the vent accumulates lint and debris from the dryer it causes the dryer to run at hotter and hotter temperatures that will eventually spark and cause the lint to catch fire.
Dryer vent cleaning procedures:
1. Our technicians go through and pull the dryer out and clean inside the vent that leads out of the structure with a cable, brush, and extractor that adapts to the diameter of your dryer vent duct.
2. We then reverse the extractor with a blower to be sure it is all cleared out.
3. Then we run a camera through the vent so we can see that the vent is clean from start to finish.
4. You as the customer will be shown the proof of cleaning and dryer will be tested with your consent
