There are nearly 3,000 clothes dryer fires per year resulting in 5 deaths, 100 injuries and $35,000,000 in property damage. Annual dryer vent cleaning will help you keep your family safe.
Many HVAC system maintenance plans neglect to include regular air duct cleaning. So if you can’t remember the last time yours cleaned , it's probably time to give us a call.
A typical six-room home can generate up to 40 pounds of dust per year! The dust and grime you can see lets you know you need air duct cleaning services. Just imagine what’s in your ductwork what that would do to your indoor air quality!
It is recommended that you have your dryer vent cleaned every year and your home/business duct system be cleaned every 3-5 years depending on a number of factors. How would your kitchen table/floors look after 3-5 years of no cleaning at all? So you can get a rough idea of what the inside of your ductwork looks like.
Dirt and dust aren’t the only contaminants that accumulate over time in your vents. Pollen, pet hair, pet dander, dead insects, and rodent feces are other contaminants found in home air ducts that can cause problems, such as increasing the risk of asthma and allergy attacks in your house.
Construction projects cause lots of dust and debris that end up in your ductwork so duct cleaning services are particularly beneficial after a remodel.
The National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) has estimated that the air in your home cycles through your HVAC systems approximately five to seven times every day. Each time that air travel through your ductwork, it can pick up mold, grains of dust and dirt, particles of contaminants, pollen spores, and pet dander that have built up on the inside.
If your ducts are poorly maintained they are likely contributing to unhealthy air and higher energy bills. This reason is why ventilation system cleaning is so important. Every time an unclean system activates, you breathe dirt, dust, allergens and bacteria.

The elderly, asthmatics, and people with breathing problems are also likely to be sensitive to pollutants in the air. (Department of Consumer Affairs)
