Air Duct FAQs

Yes, you should! Dust, pet dander, and other debris get lodged in your air ducts and some gets spewed back into your home air every time the furnace or air conditioner runs. If you’ve had construction or remodeling done on your home, you should definitely have your HVAC system cleaned.

Clean air ducts will not only help keep your home from getting so dusty, but it will also improve your indoor air quality, get rid of allergens, lengthen the lifespan of your HVAC system, make your home more energy efficient, and lower your energy bills.

We recommend every five years for homeowners. If you have a commercial facility, our recommendation will vary depending on how much laundry you do. Feel free to give us a call to discuss your needs with us.

To get your HVAC system truly clean, we remove all the contaminants that have built up there. First, we dislodge the dust and other contaminants from the surfaces in your HVAC system. We put it under negative pressure with a high-powered vacuum and remove everything so that your home stays clean while we are there.

Our regular cleaning process does not use chemicals. However, if you have us sanitize your air ducts, we will use a chemical product to eliminate odor-causing microbes.

It takes about three hours for a home. If you have a larger office building or commercial facility, plan for about three hours per system.

No. Our team uses a truck-mounted vacuum to remove all the dust without leaving it behind in your house.

We provide you with before and after pictures of your own system.

A UV light in your HVAC system helps your loved ones stay healthy by sanitizing the air as it moves through your heating and air conditioning system. This reduces mold and viruses that would otherwise be circulated through your home.

Dryer Vent FAQs

With every use, a little bit of lint escapes the lint trap and travels into the vent system. Dryer lint is sticky, and it tends to build up into clogs that restrict the airflow in the vent. If it’s been over a year since you had the dryer vent cleaned or if your clothes are taking longer and longer to dry, call us.

Here are the top indicators that you need to get your dryer vent cleaned.

  • Your laundry takes significantly more time to dry than it used to.
  • It’s been more than a year since the vent was cleaned.
  • You just moved into a home or building and don’t know the last time it was cleaned.
  • You hear birds or animals inside your vent.

Dryer manufacturers recommend that dryer vents should be cleaned every year. Their concern is mainly fire safety because flammable lint can significantly build up over the course of a year. People who dry a lot of items that create more lint, such as towels, need to be especially careful to get vents cleaned annually.

That being said, the more frequently you use your dryer, the more frequently you should have your vents cleaned. A large family or a business with a lot of laundry may need to have their vents cleaned every six months to maintain peak energy efficiency.

When you want a job done right, call in professionals who adhere to the high standards of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. We’ve got the tools and experience to get it done thoroughly and make your home safe and efficient.

Mini Split FAQs

For most homeowners and business owners, we recommend getting it professionally cleaned annually.

Yes, but if you are not very familiar with mini split systems already, we recommend getting it cleaned professionally.

Yes. Mini split systems require certain expertise and knowledge to clean adequately without harming the system. Unfortunately, most people lack this knowledge, so we highly recommend that you call in qualified professionals.

Between $300-$500 per air handler.
