Reasons Related to Air Duct Cleaning
Servicing all of Bay Area

The need for duct cleaning arises because dirt, dust, debris, allergens and other particles build up in the air ducts over time which may adversely effect the indoor environment and performance of your system.

WILL MY HOUSE BE LESS DUSTY AFTER YOU CLEAN THE AIR DUCTS?

Yes, the inside of your ductwork is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. By cleaning out your ducts, this eliminates existing dust to infiltrate your home.

WILL AIR DUCT CLEANING HELP MY ALLERGIES?

Many people are allergic to animal dander, smoke, pollen and dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in ductwork. Remove the debris and you remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing particulate debris in your ducts, there are less dust particles and potential allergens in the air to aggravate those with respiratory illnesses.

I LIVE IN A NEW/REMODELED HOME. DO I STILL NEED SERVICE?

YES! Air duct system cleaning is needed in homes that are newly built/remodeled. During construction, the ductwork is exposed and the air system is running. During this time, construction debris such as plaster dust, hardwood floor sanding dust, drywall, wood, dust, insects and insulation get into your ductwork.

Many home buyers have ducts inspected/cleaned prior to closing on their home. Have your home inspector contact us to provide a video!

Clean Your Dryer Vent to Avoid Fire Hazards and Dryer Health

A dirty or badly installed vent can be serious fire hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that dryers are associated with 15,600 fires each year.

DOES CLEANING MY DRYER VENT LOWER MY ENERGY BILLS?

Yes, by having your dryer vent professionally cleaned, your clothes dryer will run more efficiently.

Try this: Try breathing through a straw-vs-regular...when the airway path is restricted you have to breathe harder to get air! Your dryer will struggle to get air used to dry your clothes. When the vent is cleaned out, it will not have to run as long, lessening the wear and tear of your dryer, reducing your need for repair and lengthening the life of your dryer as well as preventing the lint from catching on fire! Over 15,000 house fires a year are caused by clothes dryer vents being clogged. DON'T RISK EVERYTHING YOU HAVE WORKED SO HARD FOR!!

CAN I CLEAN MY DRYER VENT ON MY OWN?

It's kinda like trying to work on your vehicle's engine when you are NOT a mechanic...it is advised that you consult a professional. We have invested thousands of dollars in special equipment to clean and video inspect the hard-to-reach areas of the dryer vent system.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY DRYER VENT NEEDS TO BE CLEANED?

Using the following as a checklist, you can get a good idea if your dryer vent is in need of cleaning:

  • Clothing are taking longer to dry than normal.
  • Clothing is very hot and still damp when dryer finishes (especially heavy items, such as towels).
  • The dryer itself feels hotter.
  • There may be no lint on the lint screen (i.e. the exhaust system is clogged).
  • Visually inspect around the back of your dryer. Is there lint debris?

Clean Your Filters Regularly and Avoid Expensive Heating Repairs

Filters play a very important role in the functionality of your heating system. You should see them as components that not only provide you with clean and healthy indoor air, but also protect the internal components of your heating system. In other words, keeping your filters clean helps you avoid heating repiars.

Why Clean the Filters?

The most obvious purpose of filters is to prevent dirt and debris from getting inside your home or building up on your systemís heat exchanger and fan. Furthermore, clean filters ensure proper airflow between outside and the inside component of your heating system. If the airflow is obstructed, the system overloads, therefore, consumes more energy.

Outside air contains particles such as viruses, bacteria, animal dander, dust and mold. Filters are responsible for trapping all these particles, and preventing them from getting inside your home. However, you should know that not all filters are the same. The way you can understand the efficiency of a filter is to read its MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). The higher the rating is, the more particles the filter stops.

Why Change your filters Regularly?

First of all, dirty filters can seriously damage your systemís components. Furthermore, dirty filters make the entire heating system less efficient, and this translates into higher energy bills. If you want to prolong the life of your system, and avoid expensive heating repairs, then make sure you change the filters regularly.

Another reason for cleaning or replacing your filters is indoor air quality. People that have respiratory conditions such as asthma should replace the filters of their heating system more often. A rule of thumb is to inspect your filters monthly, and if they are dirty, clean them properly. You should consider replacing a filter that has been cleaned more than three times.
