Summer Air Duct and Dry Vent Cleaning

Summer Air Duct and Dry Vent Cleaning

Summer is upon us and it’s time to consider cleaning the air ducts and dryer vents in your home – all those things we put off during the winter. Air quality in your home is important and can be affected by several things: dirty filters, neglected cleaning of air ducts, dust and allergens. Many homeowners have gone years without giving a thought to having a professional air duct cleaning done.

Here are a few suggestions to improve air quality in your home. Ensure you change your filters at least every three months. Make sure your furnace is getting proper air flow. Inspect what you might have propped up against or near it. The furnace should have good air flow, meaning, leave a perimeter of three feet around it. Move that bicycle and box of clothes you’ve been meaning to donate to another section of your garage. If inside your home, make sure a door isn’t open against it thereby restricting the air flow. And if you have never had your air ducts cleaned, even if this is a new home, it is recommended to have it done every five years or after that remodel you just completed.

Dryer vents that have not been cleaned in years pose a potential fire danger. Dryer vents and vent cover fins outside the house should be cleaned every two years. You can refer to our website for more information and contact us to schedule a cleaning today at (503) 475-9981!
