AIR DUCT CLEANING
Why Air Duct Cleaning Is Important.
Your air duct system conveys forced heat and cooling into your home. It also conveys any pollutants and debris that may be present inside your ducts. The pollutants and debris accumulation in the ducts when combined with moisture, can stick to the duct walls and become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and other micro-organisms. Breathing dust and micro-organisms on a regular basis can compromise your health. Cleaning your ducts ensures that the air circulating into your home is healthy, safe, and free of pollutants.
What Is Your Cold Air Return and Why It Should Be Cleaned.
The cold air return is an integral part of the home ventilation system. It’s easily identified by its large vent size, and close proximity to the furnace. Often there is more than one cold air return in a home. The cold air return draws air from the home into the furnace. Unfortunately, it also draws in all the common debris present in homes such as carpet fiber, dust and pet hair. Since the cold air return vent is the gateway to most debris and contaminants, cleaning it is an important part of the air duct cleaning.
There Are Different Methods For Cleaning Air Ducts:
Negative Pressure Method
Negative pressure is a method in which lose debris is vacuumed out of air ducts.
The Deep Cleaning Method (Duct Brushing)
In cases where the ducts had not been cleaned regularly, or for a long period of time, especially in the dusty deserts of Phoenix, Arizona, loose debris in the ducts mixed with moisture builds up on the walls of the ducts. This buildup provides an inviting environment for mildew, mold and bacteria. In such cases scrubbing the walls of the ducts with a motorized rotating brush is required.
(Mold, mildew and odor removal)
Application of air duct sanitizer is often recommended after deep cleaning. It de-oxidizes the buildup remnants, retards future growth of mold, mildew and bacteria, and removes odors. When sanitization is needed, we use EPA registered solution specifically manufactured for air duct sanitation in homes. It’s safe and leaves no toxic residue or odor. MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is available upon request.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Have you ever heard a news report about a dryer sparking a dangerous house fire? Most homes have dryers, but most homeowners are unaware of the potential fire hazards. In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently reported that thousands of fires are sparked by clogged dryer vents– averaging close to 15,000 cases each year!
Heavy dryer use can cause lint build-up in the dryer tube. Excessive lint in the dryer tube is a hazard—rising heat can cause excessive lint to catch fire. In these cases, cleaning the lint filter is not enough. To prevent a fire hazard, maintenance and cleaning of your dryer vent is essential.
Over time, too, excessive lint can reduce air flow, increasing drying time and energy usage.
On your own, you can take a few steps. First, make sure a flexible metal is used to connect your dryer and the duct. You should check this connection periodically to make sure it is not damaged or torn. Secondly, make sure your dryer’s air flow is strong and hot. Finally, we recommend a dryer vent cleaning performed yearly by a professional with the right equipment.
The cleaning will run from the dryer to the exit point of the dryer tube. After cleaning, our technicians will guarantee strong air and appropriate heat distribution. Finally, we will leave you with day-to-day maintenance tips.
Like most busy Phoenix, Arizona residents, cleaning a dryer vent is the last thing on your busy schedule. The vent is behind the dryer, out of sight and out of mind.
But there are dryer vent warning signs that you may have noticed which indicate lint accumulation in the vent and restricted air flow!
Indications that your dryer vent needs to be inspected and cleaned by a professional to prevent a lint fire and increase the efficiency of your dryer:
Your dryer is still producing heat, but it takes longer and longer to get your clothes dry.
Clothes are still damp or hotter than usual at the end of the drying cycle.
Your clothes dryer is hot to the touch.
Fogging Cleaning & Disinfectant Services:
Fogging Cleaning and disinfecting are important steps in protecting yourself and others from the spread of illness-causing germs. And it is very important to hire a professional cleaning company to do the job for you.
