How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

It has been YEARS since I used a service to clean my home. In the past I've always used one of those types that send in a crew and they very quickly go through the house and are gone in 30 to 45 minutes. They always did a "good job" but not a "great job". The two ladies that came from Jessie's did a GREAT JOB and spent two full hours working constantly. I will call them again for sure!
Over time, lint and debris accumulate in dryer vents and cause clogs that can lead to a number of dryer vent problems including decreased efficiency. When airflow in a dryer vent is restricted due to clogs, there is an increased risk of fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, wasted energy and time, and excessive wear to clothing, among other negative effects. There are over 15,500 dryer fires each year, and many could have been easily prevented by professional dryer vent cleaning. Dryer Vent Wizard of St. Augustine’s skilled and experienced technicians provide thorough dryer vent cleaning to combat lint accumulation and hazardous clogs.
My A/C stopped working on Sunday afternoon, the repair tech was there within the hour. He was very friendly and explained the problem and the cost. I decided it was time to replace the system which was ten years old. The estimator was there in no time, looked over my home and the system and gave us several options. We decided on a system, and it was installed and working at 2:30 on Monday. Highly recommend Waychoff's!
Keeping your air ducts clean provides many benefits to you and your home, first and foremost being greatly improved indoor air quality. Dirty air can bog down your home, but a clean air-duct system eliminates these problems. Clean air ducts can also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in the air ducts can lead your heating and cooling system to work harder and shorten its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems use less energy and therefore cost less money out of your pocket. Higher indoor air quality keeps your HVAC system free of corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Chances exist that lint that has in fact been restricting the exhaust vent over a prolonged time period can cause overheating which in turn can cause a fire. The establish of lint that occurs over a prolonged amount of time is not merely a fire threat, it is also a clothing dryer problem that gradually steals the energy efficiency of the clothes dryer and gradually cost you significantly more money.

Ensuring your air ducts are clean is one of the most simple ways to keep a clean house and healthy body. Since dust and other contaniments pass through your air ducts five to seven times a day, they can contribute to different health problems. You may notice the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. The sooner you have your air ducts cleaned, the sooner you can breathe easy. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, including cooling coils, fans, heat exchangers, registers, grilles, diffusers, and air ducts.
You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.
If you’ve been noticing more dust around the house or worsened allergies, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned. While it’s recommended to change your air filters regularly, professional air duct cleaning only needs to be done once every five to seven years. More effective and prolonged results from air duct cleaning can be attained by having a whole-home air cleaner installed.

Since your dryer has to blow exhaust air out through the ducts, the shorter the ductwork, the better. The total recommended length is normally less than 25 feet from the back of your dryer to the outside vent cover. If the duct has bends and turns, it should be an even shorter distance. The more turns, and the further the distance, the harder your dryer must work to move exhaust air and loose lint. A clogged dryer vent means:

Air McCall’s comprehensive Duct Cleaning process includes the use of a fogging machine to sanitize your duct system with an all-natural biocide that is harmless to you and your family, and your pets as well. Most companies use a sprayer (not a fogging machine) to try to sanitize the duct system but the sprayers are not effective to treat the entire duct system.
Q. Just bought an older house. When we turn on the whole house fan, even with lots of windows open, some air is still drawn through our vents. This causes severe alergy attacks for my wife. The previous owners never had the furnace serviced, weren't the cleanest people, and had several cats. I can only imagine how nast all of the air ducts are. I cleaned out a couple of the reurn ducts and they were nasty with dust and construction debris. I want to have the system cleaned out well. I've gotten several quotes that vary pretty greatly in cost $179-$450. We have a small home with a finished basement that also has heating ducts. I want to choose a service that will do a great job, but have heard that some do a much better job than others. How do I know what to look for, or ask for in a good air duct cleaning service?
Jacksonville dryer vent cleaning service technicians are trained to do a complete dryer vent cleaning. If your dryer vent vents out to the roof, most of the buildup is in the "gooseneck" shaped cap sticking out of your roof. That is why it is neccessary for us to either go up on the roof or in the attic and clean the dryer vent cap out before cleaning the rest of the duct. Beware of dryer vent cleaning services that clean the duct only from the laundry room because the brushes or blower will push the lint up to the roof vent and compact it even more.
