Air Duct Cleaning:
First we hook up an industrial vacuum to the furnace. This creates negative air pressure (or vacuum) thoughout the air duct system.
We then go to every hot and cold air register with what is called an "air wand or air gun". This air wand has a nozzle on it that is about a foot long, it's pliable, fits in between the fins of the registers, and puts out about 200 lbs of air pressure. We are able to angle the air wand to push all the dust and debris down the branch lines (typically no more than a 5 foot run) and into the main trunk lines. We then use what is called an "air whip or air snake" which has a reverse air nozzle on it.
Basically we will drill a small 1" hole by the furnace (which will be later plugged with a "duct plug"). We insert the air whip into the hole and with the reverse air nozzle the air whip basically propels itself to the end of the trunk line. Then with the air pressure on, we slowly pull the air whip back towards the furnace. Meanwhile the air whip bangs around inside the trunk line pushing all the dust and debris back towards the furnace where our vacuum catches it so there is no mess involved. Today this "push and pull method" is considered the most effective way to clean air ducts.
First we will tarp of the fireplace area and hook up a vacuum which has a HEPA filter on it. This makes sure we don't make a mess and prevents tiny soot particles from entering your home. You can clean fireplace chimneys from below but we prefer to clean from above because it is much easier that way. While up on the roof our technician will remove the chimney cap and insert a wire brush attached to long fiberglass poles into the chimney.
With the wire brush we scrub all the creosote build-up off the chimney flue liner. Once the chimney is clean the technician replaces the cap and performs a safety inspection on the chimney. Typical things to look for are missing mortar around the bricks, cracked bricks, and damaged crowns and caps. Finally the technician will vacuum all the soot and debris and inspect the fireplace, damper and smoke shelf making sure everything is in working order.
Dryer Vent Cleaning:
There are many different ways clothes dryers are vented, which makes the method of cleaning different depending on the circumstances. Sometimes the dryer venting is only a few feet long and is a relatively simple job. On the other hand some dryer venting systems and be very long an have serveral twists and turns making it much more difficult. If fact the material used for venting dryers varies as well.
Some dryers have galvanized pipes (the preferred material) others have flexible aluminum or coiled plastic venting. Depending on the circumstances we will use brushes, air wands, air snakes, and even disassemble the venting system if necessary. Either way we will make sure the vent is clean and put back together correctly.
Tips & FAQ
Do you use a "roto-brush"to clean air ducts?
No we do not. Most experts agree the "roto-brush" does not clean the air ducts as well as our "push and pull" method. In fact, a leading expert in the air duct cleaning industry was quoted as saying: "This whole roto-brush nonsense is more of a gimmick than anything else." The "roto-brush" does not clean the cold air returns or the main trunk lines very well. Have you ever tried to fit a round peg into a square hole? Doesn't work that well. Also, the "roto-brush" tends to stir up dust and debris without catching it with it's vacuum which tends to make a mess in the home. In some instances the "roto-brush" actually damages the dampers inside the air duct system. Most of all, the "roto-brush" is a very time consuming and expensive job typically taking 4-8 hours and costing $400-800 for the average size home. Even if it were more effective not many people could justify spending that much money every 2 years since that is how often it's recommended to be done.
How long does it typically take to do Furnace Maintenance & Air Duct Cleaning?
We typically ask our customers to allocate about an hour and a half depending on how big the house is and how dirty the system is.
How often should you clean your furnace and air ducts?
Most experts agree you should perform furnace maintenance and have the air ducting cleaned approximately every two years for peak efficiency, safety, extending the life of the furnace and cleaner air in the home.
How often should you sweep the chimney and fireplace?
There are several factors such as: Dryness the wood, type of wood, temperature of fire, ect. Basically, the dryer the wood, the harder the wood, and the hotter you burn your fires, the less amount of creosote build-up. Of course creosote is highly flammable and anyone who has had a chimney fire knows how dangerous it can be. Therefore, most experts agree you should sweep your chimney approximately every 50 fires and have it inspected every 2 years even if you don't use it. A chimney that is not inspected regularly may deteriorate quickly and become a very costly repair.
How often should you clean your dryer vent?
Obviously the more often you use your dryer often it should be cleaned, but how it is vented makes a big difference as well. If the dryer venting system is relatively long, or has multiple or sharp turns, it needs to be cleaned more often. Most experts would agree that having the dryer venting system cleaned approximately every 500 loads would be sufficient, however you should at the very least have your dryer vent professionally inspected at least every 2 years.
