Consumer Product Safety Commission says that in 2000, there were 12,700 clothes dryer fires results in $99m in damages, 330 injuries, and 20 lives lost. The better a dryer vent blows, the less lint builds up in it. Short vents blow better than longer ones. Full size dryers blow better than smaller stack dryers or older dryers. Vents with a lot of turns and elbows blow worse and build up more lint. Very short vents attached to full size dryers may never need cleaning. Most vents, however, need cleaning every one to three years, depending on the factors above.
"I have a coupon for $49.99 to clean the air ducts in my home, can you price match?"
Please be aware of these companies claiming to clean your home for this low of a price. Some companies advertise a full system clean, when in fact they do not clean the trunk lines where the dust buildup sits. We spend a minimum of three hours in a home to accomplish a proper air duct cleaning.
It is recommended to have your air ducts cleaned every 3 years.
Do you suffer from Allergies? Dirty air ducts are ongoing sources of dust mites, mold spores, and mildew which can become a haven for pet dander, pet hair, construction debris and allergens.

Indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air, and most people spend 60-90% of their time indoors.
Mold, viruses, bacteria, fungus, pollen, spores and dust mites cannot be effectively eliminated by the most well known brand of single room portable air cleaners or high efficiency filters.
Duct cleaning can improve the fuel efficiency of furnaces and cooling units which means a longer life for expensive heating and cooling devices.
