Air Duct & Dryer Vent Cleaning

Air Duct Cleaning

Air Duct cleaning can be done for a couple primary reasons:

air duct cleaning

  • Health concerns due to allergen sensitivity. Ductwork can harbor nasty allergens and pollutants including: mold, dander, dust and bacteria.
  • More efficient operation of your air handler. Clogged or extremely dirty vents and filters can cause undue strain on the air conditioning equipment. This additional strain can increase your electric bill costing you extra money each month.
  • Increased lifespan of air conditioning unit. Extremely dirty units for a prolonged period can lead to equipment strain and in worse case scenarios equipment malfunction.

Our process includes the following:

  • Removal and cleaning of vent and return covers
  • Deep cleaning of air return space/ducting
  • Deep cleaning of each duct vent and ductwork-both hard ductwork and flex ducting
  • Sanitizing of the entire unit and ductwork with our Essential Oil (Thyme) based formula that has 0 VOC’s and will reduce bacteria and allergens


Dryer Vent Cleaning

You may need dryer vent cleaning if you begin to notice the following:

  • Clothes are taking longer to dry.
  • The dryer seems to be overheating
  • No air or low air flow felt from the vent on the exterior of the home
  • Error messages on your dryer

duct cleaningA leading cause of home fires is due to clogged or nearly plugged dryer vents! We ROUTINELY clean dryer vents that are ¾ of the way clogged, these are fires waiting to happen.

Attempting to clean a dryer vent without the correct tools can damage your venting and dryer as well as cause additional clogging due to incomplete removal and “packing” down of lint.

Several different things can contribute to a dryer vent fire. Lint filters only collect a certain amount of lint during the drying process, the rest is meant to pass out the dryer vent to the exterior of the home. If the line is clogged the lint can become trapped near the heating element and catch on fire. Another cause could be the dryer overworking and therefore overheating while attempting to push air out a clogged vent. Lint is extremely combustible and once lit can move very rapidly into a major house fire. Condensation within a dryer vent can create packed lint that also catches on fire as the aluminum exhaust tubing heats up! Dryer vents that are to long or have to many turns can also restrict the airflow. This restriction can also lead to dryer overheating and fire.
