Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I clean my air ducts?

When left unclean, pollutants such as dust, dirt, pollen and pet dander accumulate in your air ducts. These pollutants contaminate your air, triggering allergic reactions. Cleaning your air ducts regularly prevent coughing fits and keeps the air in your home clean.


How will you clean my ducts?

Our highly skilled technicians use powerful vacuums that suck up the pollutants lodged in your air ducts. After vacuuming, we then use rotary brushes to extract any pollutants missed.


How often should I have my ducts cleaned?

The average house or office requires a clean every five to eight years. Homes with a high amount of pets or residents with respiratory problems may want their ducts cleaned more often.


How long will it take to clean my air ducts?

With professional help, a home typically only requires two to four hours of cleaning. However, older homes and homes with a high number of pets take longer, as dust and pollen build up larger and faster.


Why should I have my dryer vent cleaned?

Over time, lint builds up in the dryer vent, clogging the system and creating a fire hazard. The U.S. Fire Administration reports that clothes dryers with severe lint buildup cause more than 2,900 annual home fires. Cleaning the dryer vent clears the vent of lint.


How often should I have my dryer vent cleaned?

To keep your bills low and house safe of fire hazards, clean your dryer vents at least once a year. If you or your family do laundry every day, you may want to have it cleaned several times a year.


What is soda blasting?

Soda blasting is an innovative cleaning technology that uses a specially formulated blast media to remove paint, dirt, coatings and other contaminants without causing harmful abrasion to the surface being cleaned. Soda blasting helps remove mold, clean up fire damage and paint stripping vehicles.
