When it comes to air duct cleaning, you could say, “If it’s in your ducts, it’s in your lungs.” Even in homes where the air filter is changed regularly, dust and particles can gather in the system and ducts over time, resulting in decreased air quality and system performance.

In even worse cases, moisture can form in the system, creating a perfect environment for mold growth and a potentially hazardous living environment. Many times after a building has suffered smoke damage, it is necessary that the air system be cleaned to remove soot and odor deposited by the smoke.

Duct cleaning can improve the energy efficiency of heating and cooling systems, lower your utility bill, reduce the likelihood that your system will need repair and increase the life span of your HVAC system. Furthermore, duct cleaning improves your indoor air quality by removing dust, mold, allergens and bacteria from your HVAC system.

    In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes through regular use, there are several other factors that can increase the need for duct cleaning, including:
    • Pets
    • Occupants with allergies
    • Cigarette or cigar smoke
    • Water contamination or damage to the home/HVAC system

    I live in a new home. Do I still need air vent duct cleaning?
    Absolutely! Up to 50% of indoor air duct system cleaning is done in homes that are less than five years old. During construction, the ductwork is wide open and the air handler is often run without a filter. During this time, construction debris such as pieces of plaster, drywall, wood, dust, insects and insulation, are accumulated in the ductwork. If this is your situation it might make sense to have professional air duct cleaning companies take a look.
    Can cleaning my dryer vent save me money on my energy bill?
    Yes! By having dryer vent cleaners professionally clean your dryer vent, your clothes dryer will run more efficiently. Your dryer will not have to run as long, lessening the wear and tear on your dryer, reducing your need for repair, and increasing the lifespan of your dryer. Duct work cleaning can save you money on your energy bill, too.
    Will my house be less dusty after an AC vent cleaning?
    Yes, the inside of your ductwork can be the equivalent of having a whole extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the ductwork gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home. This is another reason why furnace and duct cleaning is so important.
    How is my health affected from dirty ducts?
    Dirty ducts within a home means dirty air in all of your living spaces. In some cases, the amount of indoor air pollution could exceed that of the outdoors. Since many people spend the majority of their day inside at home, this means that you could be experiencing a wide variety of health problems, all because of dirty air ducts.

It can easily accommodate right angle turns and multiple bends found in most types of duct systems. Our equipment is the most advanced ac vent cleaning equipment available today.
    How long does it take to perform an air conditioning duct cleaning?
    A 2,000 square foot house takes approximately three to four hours for a two-man crew to perform an indoor air duct cleaning. For some larger homes, we send three or four-man crews to ensure that the central air duct cleaning job is completed quickly without cutting any corners.
    My wood floors were just refinished. Should I bring in air vent cleaners?
    Dust and debris is often the result of many flooring and remodel projects. These contaminants can be pulled into your system and distributed throughout your house. It’s a good idea to perform an indoor air duct cleaning after this and many other construction projects, such as: room remodels, granite counter tops, water damage restoration, fire damage restoration, faux finishing and others.
