Pollutants in your heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) system can aggravate asthma, and allergies. Our duct cleaning process can help eliminate bacteria, fungus, viruses, and other biological contaminants to improve the air quality in your home. Cleaning your air ducts can protect everyone in your home from respiratory ailments.
A Cleaner Environment
Less dust, dirt, pet dander, cooking smoke and other impurities means a cleaner living environment. Cleaning your air duct system can help maintain a cleaner home, requiring less dusting.
Better System Efficiency
Cleaning your heating and cooling air ducts allows the system to operate at peak efficiency, resulting in less run time and lower heating and cooling bills. Cleaning your air duct system can also extend the life of your heating and air conditioning equipment.
New Homes and Renovation Work
Your new home may not be as clean as you think. During construction, your air duct system is open allowing wood shavings, drywall dust, dirt, trash and carpet fibers to settle or be swept into your system. Cleaning your air duct system is the only way to thoroughly remove these contaminants.
Air Duct Cleaning Learning
If you have fiberglass duct-board, or insulated air ducts and the insulation gets wet or moldy, it cannot be effectively cleaned and should be removed and replaced. And if the conditions causing mold growth in the first place are not corrected, mold growth will recur.

- Air ducts have more germs than a chicken coop (American Lung Association)
- EPA claims indoor air has been found to be up to 70% more polluted than outdoor air
- Children are more likely than adults to be affected by polluted indoor air (Dept Consumer Affairs)
- A buildup of pollutants up to 0.42 inches on the heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21% for your heating and air-conditioning performance resulting in monthly utilities that are one forth more expensive. (Environmental Protection Agency)

Improving indoor air quality has become a major concern. Besides having your air ducts cleaned, consider upgrading your air filter or adding whole home fresh air ventilation.

Dryer vent cleaning prevents damage to your dryer, reduces the dry time, lowers energy usage, reduces, and prevents home fires.
- The U.S. Fire Administration claims the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires are a failure to clean them, and that fires primarily occur during the fall and winter, peaking in January.
- 2900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year causing 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and more than $35 million in property loss.
A clothes dryer works by forcing hot air through a turning drum. Wet clothes placed in the drum are then dried by moving hot air. It is possible for a full load of wet clothes to contain as much as one and a half gallons of water. Lint, consisting mostly of small fibers from the clothes and debris in or on the clothes, is created from the clothes as the clothes tumble in the drum. While much of the lint is trapped by the dryer’s filter, lint is also carried through the vent system along with moist air. Lint is a highly combustible material that can accumulate both in the dryer and in the dryer vent. Accumulated lint leads to reduced airflow and can pose a potential fire hazard. In addition to the accumulation of lint, blockage in dryer exhaust vents also can occur from the nests of small birds or other animals or from damages to the venting system itself. A compromised vent will not exhaust properly to the outside. As a result, overheating may occur and a fire may ensue.
