AIR DUCT CLEANING COLORADO
A Healthy Environment Begins With The Air You Breathe!
Air Duct Cleaning Procedure may vary slightly per job depending on the configuration of the ductwork. Our air duct cleaning company consistently invests in the most modern technology and air duct cleaning equipment such as HEPA filter powerful vacuums or Rotorbrush duct cleaning equipment.
Cooling coils trap dust, soil, grime and other troublesome deposits that reduce the heat transfer efficiency of HVAC units. This buildup interferes with proper system operations.
Blower Motor Assembly - Part of the air-handling unit responsible for air flow in the system. Good spot to find heavy dust accumulation, which decreases the efficiency of the unit.
Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning Services should be performed every six months to three years depending on many factors such as dryer efficiency, length of duct, number of turns in duct, length of any vertical duct. Most homeowners do not think about dryer vent cleaning services until their dryer stops working or overheats and causes a fire. Some homeowners have even purchased a new dryer thinking the old one was wore out, only to find that the new dryer didn't work any better because the dryer vent was clogged with lint. Dryer vents become clogged with lint because lint particles bypass the lint filter entering the duct with warm moist air which clings to the walls of the duct. The longer the duct, vertical duct, and turns increase this buildup. This buildup restricts airflow through the duct which increases back pressure on the dryer fan causing the dryer to overheat
How do we clean dryer vents?
We perform two types of cleaning: "Routine Cleaning" and "Problem Cleaning"
1.Routine Cleaning: All dryer vents are cleaned from the outside using a high pressure, compressed air tool - a jet-snake. The jet-snake shoots down the vent like a rocket, blasting loose lint, debris, and nests, sending it to the outside, where we catch it in a special bag. It will normally turn 2 or 3 corners, cleaning to the flexible hose behind the dryer. No lint enters the dryer or residence. "Routine cleaning" is usually performed on large quantities of vents at apartments and condominiums.
2.Problem Cleaning is performed when an individual dryer is not drying clothes fast enough. We disconnect and pull the dryer out, install a large blower on the vent, and blow, brush, vacuum and/or dismantle - whatever it takes to get the vent clean! Commercial dryers in central laundry rooms are also cleaned this way.
Many people are poorly informed about the importance of maintaining their chimney. As a result, improper chimney maintenance causes a substantial number of preventable deaths and injuries each year. The most serious problem resulting from poorly maintained chimneys is carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide, produced as gas and oil burn in a vented heating system, is emitted by chimneys and can be life threatening if ingested in large doses. Carbon monoxide poisoning claims about 4,000 lives a year in the U.S. In addition, about 10,000 people are made ill by lower levels of exposure to carbon monoxide. Most cases of carbon monoxide poisoning are due to inadequate ventilation or poor maintenance of appliances, blocked or leaky flues and chimneys. Chimneys can become blocked for various reasons including birds nesting on the chimney, or possible degradation of the flue. A blocked flue can lead to carbon monoxide leaking into your home. For this reason, it is very important to clean one's chimney. The Chimney Safety Institute recommends that homeowners who light fires in their fireplaces three or more times a week during the heating season should have their chimneys inspected and cleaned once a year.
The Finest Duct Cleaning technician will cover the around the fireplace with plastic to ensure that any debris does not fall on the surrounding area. Any ash or left over burned wood from the fireplace will be brushed and swept into a trash bag and then sealed. A hard metal brush with extendable rods will be placed up the chimney to agitate any debris. The debris will be vacuumed and swept into another trash bag, sealed and removed from the home.
