With your air system and air ducts in a constant cleaned state, you and those in your family can be in much healthier or at the very least minimize the symptoms experienced when the indoor air system was dirty and contaminated. In addition to improving health related symptoms, good indoor air quality in the home can lead to better breathing for deeper and undisturbed sleep. According to some doctors, improved undisturbed sleep can lead to a healthier life overall. While in some cases poor indoor air quality can be linked to asthma.
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.
Over time, your dryer vent fills with lint that sneaks by your dryer vent filter. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the clothes dryer or the duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat buildup, and result in a fire in some dryers. ISOLATED INCIDENT? Not at all. In 1997 The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated that over 15,000 fires occur each year causing an estimated 194 Million Dollars of property loss and 130 deaths.

Clean air ducts are an important component to having a clean home, and therefore it can be a great idea to clean your vent system. For maintenance purposes, we recommend that your air duct and vent system be cleaned every 3-5 years, depending on a variety of factors including your personal preference, number of pets in the household, cleanliness of the household, and other activities that affect indoor air quality, such as smoking inside. Air duct cleaning is also a good idea at the completion of a remodeling project, when moving into a new home, or if you experience increased allergies.
