Air Duct & Dryer Vent
Air Duct Cleaning
Having Americas Best clean your air ducts on a regular basis (every 3-5 years) can greatly improve the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system as well as increase the air quality in your home.
The Environmental Protection Agency claims that indoor air has been found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Now consider that most people spend 60% to 90% of their time indoors.
This is a very alarming fact.
Air Duct Cleaning Process
Our company uses the most advanced trailer mounted H.E.P.A. filtered air duct cleaning system available. Various tools are used to dislodge the debris and contaminates in your air ducts.
The first step in air duct cleaning is to connect an eight inch hose to access panels on the hot and cold main trunk lines. This hose will carry all contaminates and debris out of your home into a container located in the trailer.
Before the cleaning starts, magnets are put over all heat registers and cold air returns which give the most suction power per vent during the cleaning.
The second step is turning on the machine, which puts your home under negative air. The equipment creates a huge vacuum in your entire duct system. What does this mean to you? No dust, dirt or debris is blowing around your home before, during or after the cleaning.
As a final step we will clean each opening, either a whip system or a brush system is used to dislodge debris. One magnet is taken off at a time during the cleaning, ensuring the maximum amount of suction power for cleaning each vent. The contaminants and debris that have been dislodged from the air ducts are carried through the eight inch hose, out of your home into a container in the trailer.
As an optional step in the air duct cleaning process we can sanitize and deodorize your entire ventilation system at an additional charge. This will eliminate any mold, mildew, pollen, dust mites and bacteria that may harbor in your system. Sanitizing and deodorizing is very beneficial because it treats and kills these contaminates. We provide this optional service to create the healthiest living environment in your home.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
A Dryer vent can become clogged if it is not installed properly or the lint trap is not cleaned regularly. Dryer lint is flammable and this situation can cause a home fire. The lint trap should be checked every time you use it. Check the ductwork annually for lint build up. Do not use a dryer when you are away from home.
Keeping the lint screen clean is very important. If it is not kept clean, the dryer will run longer and cost more to dry your clothes. It will also wear out much sooner. The vent duct needs to be cleaned once a year.
The cleaning process is simple. When we arrive at your home, the technician turns the dryer on causing the air to force out the vent. Then the vent is cleaned from the outside with a spinner and brush system. No messy lint on your laundry room floor, just a clean efficient dryer vent!
Any blockage can build up heat and cause the dryer to work harder. This can cause the dryer to break down sooner. An estimated 14,000 fires, caused by clothes dryers, occur every year. The main cause is lint build up in the vent line and dryer filter.
