The first step is to clean the lint trap after every load of laundry. By doing this simple cleaning regularly, you will avoid 90% of dryer vent problems. You should perform extensive cleaning annually, or sooner if you suspect a problem. Unplug your dryer and pull it out from the wall, then disconnect the exhaust tube from the dryer and the wall, and clean it with a vacuum.

The best way to know if your cleaning was effective is through improved performance of your HVAC system, ideally. You can have before-and-after pictures taken of the ducts (make sure they are of the intake ducts - the ducts that return air into your room), motor and coils. Another tip is smell – sniff the ducts before and after the work is done. Outside of noticeably improved performance, smell and visual evidence are your best indicators.
Air McCall is the trusted leader in the science of comprehensive duct cleaning. Did you know there is a “right” versus “wrong” way to clean ductwork? Air McCall is licensed by the State of Florida to perform comprehensive duct cleaning, including removal and re-installation of air handler components, air registers, testing for air duct leakage, and repair all styles of ductwork. Please read the important bullet points below to become more informed about the “right” way to perform state-of-the-art duct cleaning and avoid unscrupulous companies.
How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.
On the other hand there are many more air duct cleaning companies that will properly clean the air system and air ducts and use commercial negative air duct cleaning vacuums with at least 2,000 CFMs of vacuum power and utilize proper agitating tools to move the contaminates within the duct work to be captured with HEPA filters and contained by the air duct cleaning vacuum equipment.

This company is the best cleaning service we've found in Jacksonville. Simple things that most other companies would take for granted this service gets right. On time arrival, uniformed, visible business vehicles, and very friendly. As far as the quality of service is concerned, they are by far the best cleaning service we've hired since we moved to Jacksonville. We were very satisfied with the service and their professionalism. We will use them again. Thank you so much for cleaning my home to my standard.
Sergio and helper arrived promptly, explained everything they were going to do, very knowledgeable about my issues with mold/mildew and after examining AC air handler inside, explained what should be done to prevent mold/mildew from forming again. Had them also treat/fog the vents. They did a very good thorough job and vacuumed up all debris that came out of vents.
I was lucky enough to have my AC lines clog up on a Sunday night. I called Waychoff's after hours emergency service and Erin got back to me within 5 minutes of my initial call. She was very friendly and explained different service options for my situation. Eric was my technician and was at my house within the hour. He was very knowledgeable, explained everything he was doing in detail, gave me tips and advice to help prolong the life of my unit and even let my dog crawl all over him and "help". He had me back up and running less than an hour after he arrived. If you want a company who knows what they are doing and has fast, affordable and friendly service, I would highly recommend Waychoff's!
I could not be happier with the service I received from Jason Hester. He was a consummate professional and thoroughly explained the issues I had with my AC unit. I never felt I was being sold on any service. I have used other AC companies in the past, but will now call Waychoff's AC for all my future needs. If you are looking for an AC company, look no further and you will be more than pleased with the service you receive.

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.

This service call was excellent. I would highly recommend All Appliance Repair to anyone needing work. My dryer wasn't working and they fixed the belt and rod, and when it squealed after they left, they returned to add another part at no extra charge. They guarantee their work! In addition, they noticed the vents needed cleaning and did that while here. As well as being professional and efficient, they also cleaned up after their work. Five Star work!

Neither can a duct cleaner PROPERLY clean the entire home, no matter the number of systems or air vents remain in the house for one low price.

2 major problems:They had to return 3 times to fix the installation of a new A/C and then I still had to fix another problem after they left. I also had to explain to the technician the difference between a parallel and series electrical installation when he was installing the automatic cut off switches.They also insist on you buying an annual maintenance package, that can cost up to $ 300 per year, even after they sell you a 10 year parts and labor warranty and if you don't buy it, then they put you at the back of the service list when you call for a repair.Avoid this company. There are so many to choose from that this should not even be on your list.
"We were pleasantly surprised with the professionalism of the specialists. The unit was delivered and installed as quoted. The unit is performing as advertised. The install team were neat, clean and did a clean install. They went over all aspects of the sales / install and answered all our questions. We can safely recommend Waychoff's to our friends and business associates. We look forward to many years of continued comfort and service from our Trane and from Waychoff's."
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!
