Why Residential Air Duct Cleaning is Essential

  • By Boris Plotinsky

Air duct cleaning is a very effective way of ridding your HVAC system of contaminants and improving your air quality. In any given home there are microscopic pollutants in the air, and throughout time, they start to build up in the air ducts. Once they have built up, they start to circulate and cause a variety of problems in your home environment. That is why clean ducts are essential to having a comfortable and efficient living space.

At premier cleaning, we have seen all types of contaminants built up in HVAC systems. We want to share the most common pollutants you should look out for in your home.

Dust
Dust is probably the most common contaminant, without surprise. You can typically find dust in hard to reach places that aren’t cleaned as frequently.

Pet Dander
Another fairly common contaminant is pet dander. This is usually found in households that have cats, dogs, and birds.

Pollen
Pollen typically gets into your ducts from the outside, where the heating system or air conditioner would pull in air.

Insect and rodent excrement
dust mites, cockroaches and rodents leave behind their droppings in your ducts. This is one of the largest contributing factors in most allergies.

All these contaminants can easily find their way into your ducts and negatively affect your air quality. Contact Premeir Cleaning , and we can guarantee a decrease in these contaminants and allergens, making your home more comfortable for you.

It’s not uncommon for birds to find dryer vents an appealing and safe place to build nests, as they can be protected from predators and outdoor elements. However, it’s possible for them to get stuck inside vent exhaust pipes and be unable to fly out. It is also a fire hazard and impedes a dryer’s ability to operate correctly. This is why the dryer vent cleaning professionals at Premier Cleaning in Brooklyn, NY, strongly recommend bird-proofing vents using the following steps.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Experts Explain How to Keep Birds Out

Install a Dryer Vent Guard or Closure System

The most effective way to block birds from entering your dryer vents is to close off their access point. This is done by installing either a vent guard or closure system. Vent guards come in a variety of sizes and are easy to install. Vent closure systems are a bit pricier but more energy-efficient. They open to let air out and close when the vent is not in use. Before applying a cover, it’s a good idea to get dryer vent cleaning first to ensure the removal of any nests that are present.

Change the Type of Vent You Have

You can further enhance your bird-proofing efforts by changing the type of dryer vent you have. If you currently have the kind with flaps, switching it for a grate option will make it more difficult for birds to pass through the opening. There are also specially designed bird deterrents on the market, but these don’t tend to work as efficiently as covering the vent.

Preventing birds from infiltrating your dryer vents and removing nests that have already been built are crucial to the safety of your home and functionality of your dryer.

New York City is one of the most popular cities in the world. With nearly nine million residents and the number growing each day, more and more people are packing into this small but vibrant metropolis. Unfortunately, one of the biggest complaints many residents have is about the pollution. Although there are anti-pollution measures in place, the air quality in the city is not always the best. If you are currently living in the city and would like to improve the air quality in your home, you should invest in air duct cleaning .

Below, Premier Cleaning , an HVAC service company in Brooklyn, NY explains some of the benefits of routine duct cleaning for New York City residents.

Why You Need Air Duct Cleaning Services in New York City

Cut Back on External Pollutants

The pollution from exhaust, dust, and other outside pollutants can make it into your home. These pollutants can clog your air ducts and filters, causing allergies and making it difficult for you and your family to breathe easily. Scheduling an air duct cleaning with an HVAC technician every three years will help to clear these pollutants from your home and improve your family’s health.

Improve Air Quality Within Your Home

In addition to removing the external pollutants from your HVAC system, routine duct cleanings will also clear mold, pet hair, and dust mites from your ducts. These contaminants also contribute to poor indoor air quality and can cause allergies. By keeping your air ducts clean, you are ensuring that the air quality in your home remains safe and comfortable.

Eliminate Pests in Your HVAC System

In a city as busy as New York, pests such as cockroaches, ants, and spiders can make their way into your HVAC system. Introducing insecticides into your air ducts to remove the pests is not always an option as it can spread these chemicals throughout your home. Duct cleaning services can help to remove these pests and prevent them from spreading to other areas of your household.

Sanitizing and deodorizing air ducts and HVAC systems is very beneficial. While a typical air duct cleaning service mainly focuses on dirt, pollen, dust and pet dander, sanitizing and deodorizing mainly focuses on keeping the air fresh and smelling clean. This can include getting rid of the cigarette smoke smell or mold that is very hard to eradicate in certain areas of your home or business. Sanitizing and deodorizing also helps to minimize or even get rid of any allergens left in the ducts and air handler.

The best methods of applying sanitizer to the air ducts and HVAC system is using a Fogger and pressurized sanitization jet which is connected to the compressor. Though there are many chemicals available that are fairly inexpensive, homeowners should be wary of companies that use ineffective, unregulated chemicals to sanitize their air vents. Using these products could lead to very serious consequences that negatively impact air quality and health. Premier Cleaning uses trusted products from Sporicidin and Envirocon, which are the best quality and most environmentally friendly chemicals available.

Your ducts circulate air throughout your home or office, and most of the time, you don’t give much thought to them. However, to have the healthiest possible air quality, it’s important to schedule regular   air duct cleaning.

For the most part, your ducts help to keep the air in a room fresh and safe to breathe. However, over time, various contaminants and allergens can build up in them. If you don’t schedule air duct cleaning to remedy this, those allergens will eventually get circulated back into the home or office, and occupants of the building will breathe them in. In minor cases, this can lead to irritating allergic reactions — in major cases, it can make employees too sick or miserable to perform to their full potential. On top of that, more serious issues, like mold buildup or pest infestations, can develop if your ducts are ignored.

As far as avoidable problems go, a dirty air duct is high on the list. With help from an experienced duct cleaning company, you can keep your family or employees comfortable. The professionals will eliminate all contaminants from your system, ensuring any air circulated into your property is clean and safe.

To learn more about the benefits of air duct cleaning, get in touch with the experts at Premier Cleaning   in Brooklyn, NY. Their combination of experience, skill, and dedication to customer satisfaction always leads to safe, easy-to-breathe air.   Contact   them online for more information about scheduling service, or give them a call at   (917) 275-3280.

Many people today still aren’t aware of the importance of getting your dryer vents cleaned yearly. This not only drastically lowers the performance of your dryer but also puts you at risk of a fire. There are around 15 thousand house fires yearly due to congested dryer vents. Premier Cleaning’s crew of knowledgeable technicians and management have been modernizing and carefully studying every aspect of dryer vents and their engineering. We came up with three major signs that will help you determine whether or not you need your dryer vents cleaned.

Do you have to dry your clothes twice? Do your clothes come out moist and damp? This is a sign of lowered efficiency and performance which could be caused from lint build up in the dryer vent. Premier Cleaning has many contracts with homeowners and management companies all over the tristate area.       

The picture above was taken in a gorgeous apartment on the Upper East Side. As you could see there is a nice layer of lint where the flex hose should be connected. Any lint build up in the space that the dryer and washer are located in means there is a leak somewhere in the vent. The cause of this can be number of factors. One of them being that there is just too much lint at a certain point in the venting. This causes the vent to pop which could be a serious hazard if unattained.

A third indicator of whether or not you should get your dryer vents cleaned has to do with the sense of smell. If you notice a weird or stale smell coming from your dryer and washer area, that might mean there’s poor airflow. Another good tip is to check the outside area where the vent ends. This is a common area for birds and rodents to have nests. Premier Cleaning should be first on the list if you’re in need of dryer vent cleaning or replacing. We value honesty and hard work and are committed to setting a new standard in New York City and the tristate area. Call us at (917) 275-3280 or visit our website www.hvacnycpro.com
