Let’s talk about why air duct cleaning is important. We mentioned earlier the air pollution that results from lack of air duct cleaning, but it’s important to know the details. The thing is that our air ducts can pick up so many things.
Anything in your home can filter through the air ducts or build up inside them. This includes pet dander, pollen, dust, and dust mites. Dust mites are perhaps some of the worst. They invade your air ducts and make themselves at home. They leave behind waste. That waste then floats through your air ducts and into your home and the air that you breathe.
The dust mites and the other debris in your air ducts can cause illness and breathing problems. You might not even realize that it’s your air ducts that are affecting your health.
Your air ducts literally affect the air that you breathe. Is it really worth the risk?
How Air Duct Cleaning Works
The process for cleaning air ducts is really pretty simple. At Trujillo’s Cleaning Company, we have the latest technology and equipment to effectively and efficiently clean your air ducts from end to end.
You will find that every company does things differently. However, no matter what the process is, the end result should be clean air ducts and fresh air in your home. The general recommendation is that your air ducts should be cleaned every 3-5 years for the best care. If you are particularly prone to allergies or asthma, you may want to consider a more frequent cleaning.
Here’s a basic overview of how it works.
The first step is to inspect your system. Before we can clean the air ducts, we need to know how your system works and understand where the best access will be. This includes finding the access ports, the doors, and the overall makeup of the system. This is also when we determine if any special processes will be needed.
Once we inspect the system, we can create a plan for cleaning the system. Planning doesn’t take a lot of time, but we want to make sure we can effectively clean the entire system.
Now the cleaning begins. We methodically work through the entire air duct system to clean it and help you get fresh air back into your home. This process typically entails a special vacuuming process with the ability to brush the air ducts gently as needed.
Every air duct cleaning ends with an inspection. We try to be proactive to ensure we get the system cleaned effectively and that the air ducts are connected and sealed as they should be.
Cleaning the dryer vent is all about safety, efficiency, and making sure your dryer has a long and effective life. Every dryer has a lint trap that we clean out with each load of laundry. But did you know that the lint trap doesn’t actually get all of the lint?
The dryer vent also filters out a lot of lint. Most of the time it will work seamlessly, but that isn’t always the case. According to FEMA, there are nearly 3,000 dryer fires every year. That is dryers specifically. About 35% of those fires are directly related to not cleaning the dryer lint trap. But when you look at the total number of fires caused from dryer vents, it’s much higher.
That number reaches nearly 16,000 structure fires each year. The most common reason that dryers cause fires is from a dryer vent that is clogged or not working properly.
Those statistics are why it is recommended you have your dryer vents cleaned about once a year.
How Dryer Vent Cleaning Works
Much like air duct cleaning, we use specialized equipment to clean out your dryer vents. Those vents can pick up anything from lint to dirt and debris, to even birds nests. We clean the entire duct that connects the dryer to the vent and the vent itself. We make sure that your dryer connection is clear of obstruction and thoroughly cleaned as well.
This cleaning process is another process that is often overlooked or forgotten. Add this to your annual deep cleaning tasks to keep your dryer running the best that it can and to protect your home from harm.
