CAN HOME AIR DUCT CLEANING BRING ME ALLERGY  RELIEF?     

If you’re a seasonal allergy sufferer, you know that few things can drain the joy out of summertime like the misery of red, itchy eyes, continuous sneezing and post-nasal drip. These types of allergies are common in the Los Angeles area.
Allergies can mean more than general misery for asthma sufferers, whose bouts can be much worse during allergy season—even life-threatening, in some cases. Allergy-driven asthma affects 10 million Americans, rates that have doubled since 1980.

Allergies are your body’s reaction to allergens (particles your body considers foreign), a sign that your immune system is working overtime. These allergens can build up inside your indoor AC duct system.  Dirt and allergens inside your air system blow out into your work or living space, and recirculate, each time you turn on your air conditioning or heating system.  Due to this factor, some allergy sufferers are more miserable indoors than outdoors.
   
Most  residences we  work at to have  never had  the  air  system  cleaned  and if it was cleaned it was cleaned with the brush shown below- its  just not  clean.  On  Residences you need to  use  a duct cleaning  auger (half inch cable brush 25' long driven by drill) along with a  negative  air machine (big vacuum that  sits  outside). Truck mounted  equipment is good but  not required and  sometimes  is  too big  for the  driveways.

      FAQ'S
 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________


  •          How often should I get my dryer vent cleaned?
    We recommend cleaning the dryer vent once per year. However, if there is heavier than normal usage of the dryer or if the duct is very long, it may need to be cleaned more often.     





  •         What is your service area?
    The  service area includes Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Santa Barbara Counties and portions of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Any job in  California thats large scope.



  •        Does it make a mess?
  • We use a negative air industrial vacuum unit with HEPA filters to capture dirt from the system while cleaning. While setting up to clean your system, like taking down air vents, our crews take care to protect furnishings, floors, etc and they carefully clean up afterward. Our commercial proposal specifications states: "Cleaning of premises:we shall keep the job site clean of all surplus materials and debris. We shall dispose of all debris and leave area broom clean at the end of each work shift". The same applies to residential projects.

    <--THIS  IS  THE  PRO  DUCT CLEANING AUGER FOR YOUR
    HOME AIR SYSTEM  AND  SOME  COMMERCIAL  APPLICATIONS.











    Do we replace filters?



  • We will install new filters if they are provided by the homeowner or business. There are many, many sizes and types of filters and we do not carry a full stock of all types. If arranged prior to contracting for the project, however, we can provide the filters as well.






  • Does everyone have to move out,leave the premises?



  • No. However, in commercial buildings, the work is normally done off hours so regular operations of the business are not interrupted. The air conditioning is shut down during the time of the cleaning. If the project takes longer than one shift, the crew ensures that the system is operational for the next day's business.



  • How do I know my ducts are dirty?
    There are different methods of detecting if the system needs cleaning. One way is to find out from the a/c company that regularly maintains your furnace. If you don't have one, then another method you can do is open a vent from any room in the house and shine a flashlight in it; if you see a thick film of dust/debris  then its time to clean the system. Or when you turn the system on and debris comes out of vents that would also be an indication to get the system cleaned.

    Dryer Vent Cleaning
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Having the Dryer Exhaust VENT Cleaned

    Increase Efficiency and Reduces the Risk of Fires!

    There are 3 VERY IMPORTANT reasons why your dryer duct needs to be cleaned at lease once a year.


    Reason Number 1

    There where 16,499 Dryer Vent Fires last year.

    and the number continues to rise. Why? Most people don't know their dryer vents need to be cleaned. But the dryer vent duct is where lint can really build up and get clogged.  And lint is highly flammable, accounting for most dryer vent fires.

    *source: The Consumer Products Safety Commission

     

    Reason Number 2

    Lint build up Takes More Energy (and money) to Dry your Clothes

    Our dryer vent cleaning professional will detect potential hazards such as the presence of a flammable vinyl duct or a duct run that is improperly routed or a bird’s nest blocking airflow. As well as cleaning the lint filter after each load of clothes, protect your family by having your dryer vent system cleaned and inspected by our dryer vent cleaning specialist. A plastic, flexible duct is more likely to trap lint than ducting without ridges. Airflow can also be reduced by kinks or crushing of the duct. Most manufacturers specify the use of rigid or flexible metal duct to provide a minimum restriction of airflow.


    Drying Clothes Takes For Ever! 

    If your dryer isn't drying your clothes like it used to, you may not need a new dryer. A dryer vent clogged with lint reduces airflow so it doesn’t dry as efficiently and takes more energy (and money) to dry your clothes. Long vent ducts are especially susceptible to lint buildup. You can suspect lint buildup if your clothing is still damp at the end of a normal cycle.

     

    Reason Number 3  

    Dryer Damage

    Even  a  1/4 inch of lint build up in the duct exhaust increases energy consumption and  dry time by  50%! The  dryer  works  harder  and  harder the more the lint builds  up. 


    Today many dryers such as LG,and other High tech looking dryers  are actually too  sensitive,,and  wont actually  work unless you keep the  dryer duct perfectly clean  and  short.   I have  seen  dryer ducts that are so convoluted and long that these  newer  "too sensitive" dryers dont  work   with.  The  older  kenmore  Maytag dyers ,etc  are  actually just fine  and tougher than alot of the  "modern models".
