Yes. The inside of your ductwork is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the duct work gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home.
Many people are allergic to dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in duct work. Remove the debris and you remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing the particulate debris in your ducts, there are less dust particles and potential allergens in the air to aggravate those with respiratory illnesses.
All commercial inspections are FREE so call now to get yours!
Absolutely! Up to 50% of 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 running many times without a filter. During this time, construction debris such as pieces of plaster, drywall, wood, dust, insects, and insulation are accumulated in the ductwork.
By using the Roto-Vision Video Inspection unit, our technicians can show you how dirty your system is. It can also show you the "before" and "after" of your duct cleaning so you know that it's a job well done.
The equipment we use to clean the air ducts is effective in all types of air duct construction, including flex duct, round metal ducts, square metal ducts, and fiberboard. It can easily accommodate right angle turns and multiple bends found in most types of dust systems.
Yes. By having your dryer vent professionally cleaned, 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 lengthening the life of your dryer.
Although a homeowner can clean dryer vents, it is advised that you consult a professional. Most homeowners don't have the special equipment required to do a thorough job. A professional has special tools such as video inspection equipment to give a visual of the hard-to-reach areas of the dryer vent system.
Using the following as a checklist, you can get a good idea if your dryer vent is in need of cleaning:
• Loads of clothing are taking longer to dry
• 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)
