Breath easier with air duct cleaning.

Breath easier with air duct cleaning.

Clean, healthy, circulating air is crucial to everyone, especially those sensitive to indoor air contaminants. If you're an allergy sufferer, you'll benefit from immediate relief after the cleaning of your home's HVAC ductwork (Through Vent Air Compression System).

Here are just a few reasons air ducts should be regularly inspected and serviced:

  • Allergens. A properly cleaned air duct system protects you and your family from harmful dust and other common contaminants. Air ducts make perfect breeding grounds for bacteria, mold, fungus, and other allergens. Children younger than four are particularly vulnerable and often develop allergies or asthma.
  • Mold. Many air duct systems are in areas that hold moisture allowing mold and mildew to grow in and around the ductwork. Air duct cleaning should include an anti-microbial to prevent future growth.
  • Pets. Fur often gets trapped in the vents of your air duct system. Animal hair contains living germs, fungus, and allergy-causing bacteria that can wreak havoc on your ducts and in your lungs. In a newly rented or purchased home, pet dander could still exist from a previous owner. Pet fur and dander hinder the efficiency of your HVAC system. Clumps of hair slow down the airflow for the entire system and cause your air conditioner to work harder.
  • Dust. It's common to perform daily dusting only to find the dust has returned the following day. The reason is that before professional cleaning, dust continues to flow through the ductwork and out through the vents. Newly built homes contain drywall dust and construction debris in the ductwork that should go before the owner even moves in.
  • Lower Electric Bills. Years of dust, fur, insect carcasses, and other contaminants in ductwork hinder the airflow of your HVAC system. Professional cleaning removes the buildup and promotes the proper airflow needed to run your system at peak efficiency. After cleaning, your central heating and air require less energy to run properly, thereby lowering your overall energy costs.

Having your air ducts routinely inspected and serviced is essential. It accurately maintains your home's HVAC system and keeps the quality of indoor air as pure as possible.

Danielle and Kelly were so great! They had my dryer vent with over 12 years of garbage cleaned out in under an hour. What a fire hazard that could’ve been. My dryer was no longer drying my laundry because the vent was completely blocked. Don’t be like me, Clean out your vents every year people!!

Taking on mold and mildew in your home.

Taking on mold and mildew in your home.

In damp, dark places, mold and mildew grow fast, and once it gains a foothold in your house, it takes a lot of work to eliminate it. So, how do you know if it's growing just beneath the surface of your carpet and on your tiles?

8 tips to keep your dryer vents unclogged.

8 tips to keep your dryer vents unclogged.

Here are eight practical tips to help your dryer vent stay clear longer:

1. Clean the lint screen. Pick lint off after every use. Handwash the screen occasionally to remove fabric softener residue (dry thoroughly before putting it back). Once monthly, use a skinny, long-handled brush to clear the lint trap, the cavity where the screen sits. (The first time I ever did this, to a 2-year-old dryer, I pulled out a softball-sized clump of dust.)

2. Clear around the dryer. Make sure the area under and behind your dryer is free of dust bunnies, animal hair, etc. Never stack your freshly washed clothes on top of the dryer.

3. Keep unhemmed or torn fabrics out of the dryer. Raw edges, such as those of quilt pieces or cleaning cloths, fray more easily, producing larger quantities of lint. Hem them first or line dry.

4. Avoid machine drying rubber or plastic. Bathmats, pet beds, running shoes, and other items containing rubber or plastic may deteriorate when machine dried. Particles can flake off, clogging your dryer vent.

5. Always air-dry dirty clothing or towels. If you dry, say, a sandy bathing suit, all that sand will end up in your dryer and its vent system. NOT a good idea. Air-dry soiled items instead.

6. Never cover the vent outlet with a screen. The vent flap should be sufficient to keep out small animals. A screen will trap some of the lint, which ought to be going outdoors.

7. Install a metal duct extender. If you haven't already, do yourself and your family a favor by installing a smooth metal duct extender (the piece that connects the dryer to the wall vent). Plastic and foil are easily crushed, restricting airflow ... not to mention that they're both flammable at high temperatures.

8. Buy a full-size dryer. Is it time to replace your dryer? Unless you're squeezed for space, purchase a full-size model, rather than a smaller, stackable one, and have it professionally installed. It will do a much better job of blowing air, as well as drying your laundry.
