Nowadays most houses have a central air conditioning system linking air ducting to move conditioned indoor air throughout the house. Gradually, the air system and the linking air ducting will collect dust and other contaminants, which can trigger the blood circulation of unclean and contaminated indoor air through your house. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind health products that we do not believe much about are filthy air system and a duct which could be the unhealthiest product in our house.
Air duct cleaning service cleans the supply, intake, and return ducts of standard household HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). You probably know it as your central air system. Other parts that should be cleaned during a standard duct cleaning include fans, motors, heat exchangers, grills, registers, housing units, and the coils of the HVAC system.
"I was very pleased with the professional service I received. Despite the engineering challenges and heat, your team did a great job with installation and maintained a professional attitude through the 12-hour ordeal. I will not hesitate to recommend Waychoff's to our friends and neighbors. So far, we are very satisfied with the system and the results."
Assuring that your air ducts and air systems will be properly cleaned with the correct equipment, personnel has the proper training and is a Florida licensed Mechanical Contractor and that has the expertise in cleaning your home or building, is a small price to pay for the possible health benefits for you, your family, or the occupants of the building.
Over time, lint and debris accumulate in dryer vents and cause clogs that can lead to a number of dryer vent problems including decreased efficiency. When airflow in a dryer vent is restricted due to clogs, there is an increased risk of fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, wasted energy and time, and excessive wear to clothing, among other negative effects. There are over 15,500 dryer fires each year, and many could have been easily prevented by professional dryer vent cleaning. Dryer Vent Wizard of St. Augustine’s skilled and experienced technicians provide thorough dryer vent cleaning to combat lint accumulation and hazardous clogs.
These are companies who are more interested in getting your money, through misleading advertisements or “bait and switch” mailers than actually doing the work properly and improving your indoor air. The very worse thing you can do is to hire a company that may actually create more of an indoor air problem for you and your family due to improper cleaning or use of inferior air duct cleaning vacuums with no more vacuum power than a large Wet/Dry vacuum with a rotating brush attached at the end of the hose, or use a “carpet cleaner” who is not properly licensed or certified to clean air systems. Be especially suspicious of companies advertising low one price duct cleaning service, it’s like providing a one price to paint the exterior of your home whether it be 1 story or several stories high.
They called to confirm the day before they were scheduled to arrive. They arrived when they said they would. Mark was very professional and answered all of our questions when we were in the buying phase. Beau and Justin were professional installers. They were kind, conscientious of our property and the job they had to do. They worked efficiently and completed the job in a timely fashion. The two gentlemen that cleaned our duct work were professional as well, unfortunately I can remember their names. I would recommend Snyder any day for your heating and AC needs. A little pricey for the unit, but worth it in no hassle and excellent customer service!

“Julian, from Dryer Duct Cleaning services came out and cleared out our dryer vent, It was so clogged it actually leaked water from behind the dryer. I was so happy when he got done.The dryer worked perfectly and it cut the drying time by half. He was on time, cleaned up after himself and very knowledgable. They also came in $50.00 cheaper than anyone else. Appreciate the great Service Julian. Service done on 01/11/19. If there were more than five stars it would have been at the top. Thanks so Much.”
Did you know that a clogged dryer vent not only means your clothes will take too long to dry, but it’s costing you money? At a rate of $0.15 per kWh, every 40 minute drying cycle of a 5000 watt dryer costs $0.50! The lint that accumulates in the ventilation system not only reduces your dryer’s efficiency, but is also highly combustible. A clogged dryer vent costs you money in energy efficiency and is a serious fire hazard. Our dryer vent cleaning service is a cost effective way to eliminate the unnecessary expense of extended drying times and keep your family safe from the risk of fire.
We bid out this job to several companies. Curtis was fantastic on the Sales and support side - he was incredibly knowledgable and was able to answer any and all pre-sales questions we had concerning work to be performed, options, estimates, etc. Completely custom-tailored to our budget, with sensible options. Honest, responsive and professional. They arranged for a two-man installation crew to perform the work, and they did a superb job! Their install was tight, clean and buttoned-up in all regards with the Carrier equipment they installed. They walked us through details of the smart thermostat controls we opted for and Curtis provided an option for our Apple Homekit�� compatible thermostat request. Air McCall followed up with an optional vent cleaning service after the install with a separate crew who also did an amazing job! Our 15- year old unit is now running with a brand new 15-SEER system with Dehumidifier that is working GREAT! We were so impressed we had them come back out and do the same for our second unit, which we had planned for the following year. All done now with TWO completely new systems working together flawlessly! Could not be happier with the work performed and the professionalism of the company - AirMcCall should be on your list for A/C - great sales, fair pricing and professional service and installation!
On the other hand there are a lot more duct cleaning business that will appropriately clean the air system and duct and make use of industrial damaging duct cleaning vacuums with a minimum of 2,000 CFMs of vacuum power and use correct agitating tools to move the contaminants within the duct to be recorded with HEPA filters and consisted of by the duct cleaning vacuum devices.
Make sure that the company has the proper equipment and enough HEPA filtered vacuum power (2,000 CFMs or more), to properly clean your air ducts. Be weary of companies that use small vacuum units that have a small rotating brush on the end of a small vacuum hose with a typical airflow of 150 to 300 cfm or less. Proper air duct cleaning vacuums are negative air machines with 2,000 CFMs have 8 inch to 14 inch or larger, vacuum hoses to capture large quantities of dust and debris.
While a thorough air duct cleaning process must be done by professionally qualified service companies, there are a few steps you can take to help maintain the cleanliness of your heating and air conditioning system. One is to change your air filters regularly and make sure you have the right filters for your home and HVAC system. You should also have your system professionally inspected every one to two years to have a technician determine if your air ducts need to be cleaned. In between scheduled maintenance or inspections, you can do a visual check yourself by removing a wall or floor register and shining a flashlight inside the duct. If you can see debris, dirt or dust, it’s time to have your ducts cleaned by a licensed, insured HVAC professional.
Negative pressure air duct cleaning is a process in which the ducts are cleaned by hand in concert with compressed air tools to dislodge dirt and debris, which is then vacuumed up and removed. It is considered a superior cleaning method in its efficiency and in preventing dislodged debris from escaping the ducts and contaminating the air in the residence.
"Energy is consumed by HVAC systems through a number of processes. Air is typically distributed through the ductwork via an electrically‐powered fan. Cooling coils remove heat from the air. Heating coils add heat to the air. Through normal HVAC usage, particulates in the air slowlycollects on the surfaces of various HVAC components, resulting in a gradual loss of energy efficiency. Some loss of efficiency via a single dirty component may be minor. When the loss through each component is added up, however, the impact could be considerable. Generally, the greater the buildup, the greater the energy loss. Removal of the buildup of particulate on HVAC components restores energy performance to the system."
Mold in the air ducts can be an easy DIY fix. First, turn OFF your HVAC system. Find an approved cleaning solution. Pour or spray the solution on the infected area. Put on protective gear and a mask - you do not want to make contact with the mold (or chemicals! or breathe it in. Scrub the area using disposable towels or brushes, and be sure to check the drip pan and evaporator coils. Vacuum the affected areas after cleaning. Bag all your rags and utensils and dispose of properly. Apply an inhibitor to the affected areas to prevent future growth. It is recommended to call a professional if you have more than 10 square feet of mold as this may be too big of a job, or there might be other/larger issues. Even if you don’t have more than 10 square feet of mold, you can still call a professional to clean it up.
