We use Rotobrush aiR+ professional air duct cleaning equipment (rotary brush and vacuum) and believe very strongly that this is the best equipment to clean the air ducts in your home.  Our equipment features a camera system so that if you would like, you can see what we are doing as we are doing it.  The Rotobrush aiR+ is designed specifically to handle the soft, flexible ducts in homes in the South. We are able to clean air ducts by inserting the rotating brush into the duct. With the brush rotating at 450 rpm, it loosens any debris that may be stuck inside. While the brush is scrubbing the walls, the vacuum sucks up the debris, leaving your air ducts clean.

A comprehensive duct cleaning takes between 3-5 hours, depending upon the size of your house (and much longer for commercial applications). Most companies, especially the ones that have a price that seems to be “to good to be true”, are in and out of your house in less than an hour and may try to upsell you based on “mold” they allegedly find in your air handler.

There is some disagreement within the industry about the best method for cleaning air ducts.  The two schools of thought are the “negative air” approach and the rotary brush and vacuum approach.  We believe that both air duct cleaning methods can achieve great results in most situations when performed properly by competent technicians.  However, our focus has always been on high quality residential service.  The type of residential duct work commonly used in homes in the South poses unique challenges to duct cleaners because it is soft, flexible, and does not go in straight lines.  Firms using the negative air approach are especially challenged by this type of duct work, as that process was originally designed to work well on the rigid metal duct work commonly found in the North and in large commercial buildings.  The tools used to agitate the duct work in negative air cleaning are very difficult to get all the way into your duct work and can damage the lining of the ducts we find in most residences in the greater Jacksonville area.
Did you know that a clogged dryer vent not only means your clothes will take too long to dry, but it’s costing you money? At a rate of $0.15 per kWh, every 40 minute drying cycle of a 5000 watt dryer costs $0.50! The lint that accumulates in the ventilation system not only reduces your dryer’s efficiency, but is also highly combustible.  A clogged dryer vent costs you money in energy efficiency and is a serious fire hazard.  Our dryer vent cleaning service is a cost effective way to eliminate the unnecessary expense of extended drying times and keep your family safe from the risk of fire.
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?

Wondering why a chimney sweep company also specializes in dryer vent cleaning? Well, a dryer vent is not very different from a chimney; it just carries away moisture and flammable lint instead of smoke and wood debris. Hudson Chimney is trained to clean and install dryer vents. Beyond routinely cleaning out your dryer’s lint trap, it’s recommended that you have your dryer vent professionally cleaned once a year. One good indication that your dryer’s venting system needs cleaning is if it is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry. Call us today to schedule your Florida dryer vent cleaning.
Knowing that your home is clean is a great feeling. Knowing that your home air is clean is an even better feeling. Having your air ducts cleaned regularly is key to making your home safer and more comfortable for you and your family. Since we breathe in around 10,000 liters of air a day, the quality of the air in our homes greatly affects our quality of life. So we mean business when we say that air-duct cleaning is a must. Air duct cleaning involves the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, such as the supply and return air ducts of your system. It’s just a matter of time before HVAC components get contaminated with pollen, dust particles, mold (if moisture is present), and other debris. These can bring on allergy symptoms and affect your health in other negative ways, so make air-duct cleaning a priority for the healthiest home possible.

We are a division of THE ENVIRONMENTAL AIR FORCE LLC in Jacksonville and are certified Duct Cleaners, Home Inspectors, and Mold Inspectors/Remediators and therefore our dryer vent cleaning service includes cleaning the dryer vent, the hook-up to the dryer, and the dryer filter port. It also includes an indoor air health check, AC duct check, and AC system microbial check.
Some homes have "under-the-slab" dryer vents which are difficult to clean. Sometimes vermin make nests in the dryer duct and sometimes get trapped, other times roots grow inside the dryer ducts and block it. Condensate from moist clothes builds up in the underground dryer vent and cloggs it. - We have the tools and experience to do a complete dryer vent cleaning. .
These are companies who are more interested in getting your money, through misleading advertisements or “bait and switch” mailers than actually doing the work properly and improving your indoor air. The very worse thing you can do is to hire a company that may actually create more of an indoor air problem for you and your family due to improper cleaning or use of inferior air duct cleaning vacuums with no more vacuum power than a large Wet/Dry vacuum with a rotating brush attached at the end of the hose, or use a “carpet cleaner” who is not properly licensed or certified to clean air systems. Be especially suspicious of companies advertising low one price duct cleaning service, it’s like providing a one price to paint the exterior of your home whether it be 1 story or several stories high.
“Julian, from Dryer Duct Cleaning services came out and cleared out our dryer vent, It was so clogged it actually leaked water from behind the dryer. I was so happy when he got done.The dryer worked perfectly and it cut the drying time by half. He was on time, cleaned up after himself and very knowledgable. They also came in $50.00 cheaper than anyone else. Appreciate the great Service Julian. Service done on 01/11/19. If there were more than five stars it would have been at the top. Thanks so Much.”

"Energy is consumed by HVAC systems through a number of processes. Air is typically distributed through the ductwork via an electrically‐powered fan. Cooling coils remove heat from the air. Heating coils add heat to the air. Through normal HVAC usage, particulates in the air slowlycollects on the surfaces of various HVAC components, resulting in a gradual loss of energy efficiency. Some loss of efficiency via a single dirty component may be minor. When the loss through each component is added up, however, the impact could be considerable. Generally, the greater the buildup, the greater the energy loss. Removal of the buildup of particulate on HVAC components restores energy performance to the system." 

This service call was excellent. I would highly recommend All Appliance Repair to anyone needing work. My dryer wasn't working and they fixed the belt and rod, and when it squealed after they left, they returned to add another part at no extra charge. They guarantee their work! In addition, they noticed the vents needed cleaning and did that while here. As well as being professional and efficient, they also cleaned up after their work. Five Star work!


A. First of all, be sure to be there when they do the job! We had our ducts cleaned and got robbed by one of the workers who thought we wouldn't miss a few "minor" personal items. But, even though they didn't believe us at first, we reported it to the police and the company and he got caught! Secondly, ask if they not only remove the vent covers but clean those too. Ask how they clean them and if they use their own cleaning supplies and take the vent covers outside to clean--not in your bathroom or kitchen sinks, using your personal towels. Ask if they clean up the lint that falls into the room with a vacuum cleaner. They should have a crew of at least two people to put the hose in and clean out the vents and one to clean the vent covers and the area around the vents where the lint falls. They should clean the air intake vents and cover also. Some try to sell you on cleaning out your actual AC/HVAC unit coils. I don't see the need for that, but if they insists it is needed, get them to show you the dirt in there that they will be cleaning out. If they can't show you, chances are they will not be able to get in there to clean it. They should change the air filter, but be sure they don't try to sell you some heavy-duty, life-time guarantee filter that supposedly never needs to be replaced. Those don't let enough air flow through. The medium grade ones changed every few months or so work the best. You can buy those at a home improvement store and change them out yourself during the year. Make sure that they don't damage your walls with their big machine, trying to get it down the hall and around corners. They damaged our walls, too and we had to have them plaster and paint it again. Just because the company has a nationally recognizeable name doesn't mean they will do the best job. Often these are owners who hire flunkies to do the work who are thieves and don't care. It would be better to get a local guy that has been doing it a long time and can furnish you with references of satisfied customers.

My heat pump unit was not working, though the handler and thermostat were fine. I did a little testing myself and determined that the low pressure switch was triggered, then called Waychoff's without having told them anything about what I did (sort of a test to see if they'd try to sell me something I didn't need). Eric showed up 30 minutes early to the appointment (a pleasant surprise), and immediately got to work. Within 10 minutes he told me I had no coolant which triggered the low pressure sensor which meant there was a leak. He inspected the handler inside and then told me he needed to do a nitrogen pressure test to find the leak. 10 minutes after that he showed me the hissing leak in the heat pump, proving that there was in fact a leak. He brazed/welded it shut, re-tested to confirm, then filled the unit with coolant. 60 minutes later I'm back in business and my heat pump is working great. I liked that Eric was 100% honest about the issue and how to fix, and didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need. He also worked with me on the coolant charges, since they tend to mark it up quite a bit. Overall a good experience - I'd use them again for sure. They're a little bit pricey, but for the quality, honesty, and knowledge it's worth paying.
If you’re spending extra time to dry clothes completely due to a clogged dryer vent, you can bet you’re also spending extra on utilities. Extended or extra drying cycles also mean your clothes will be subjected to more wear and weathering. By hiring a Dryer Vent Wizard and shortening your drying time, you’ll use less power and save your clothing from excessive damage.
The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:
