We provide professional cleaning services in Peterborough, Clarington and Oshawa for air ducts and dryer vents, air duct sealing, as well as other products and services designed to improve your indoor air quality.  We spend a lot of time indoors; according to the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), most people spend 90% of their time indoors. The more time people spend indoors, the more sensitive they become to indoor air pollutants like dust, dust mites, bacteria, and microorganisms that come into the home through air ducts.

Efficient Heating & Cooling Systems Can Bring Lower Electric Bills!

According to EnergyStar, a government website that promotes cost savings through energy-efficient appliances and home systems, about half of the energy used in most homes is for heating and cooling. There are many steps you can take to help your unit work more efficiently:

• Get your air ducts inspected and cleaned if dust and debris is blocking the airflow.
• Inspect and seal leaky air ducts.
• Get the unit maintained at least once a year, including cleaning its components.
• Change or clean air filters each month.
• Use a programmable thermostat if the house is empty for long periods of time.

Our Air Duct Cleaning Method

Your home will be prepared for air duct cleaning, ensuring that all vents and returns are accessible, placing protective flooring covers and corner guards where necessary.  Our technicians will carefully seal your vents and returns before the air duct cleaning begins and put your air duct system under negative pressure to maximize air flow.  We will connect a powerful vacuum device to your main trunk line, which will collect dirt, dust, mould and other contaminants that will be dislodged during the air duct cleaning process.  High pressured compressed air whips will be inserted into the ductwork to dislodge the dirt and debris, which will be collected in the containment unit.  After the air duct cleaning process is complete, we will seal the access hole in your main trunk line with a metal access panel.  Our technicians will review your air duct cleaning project with you to ensure your satisfaction, and answer any questions you may have.

 

What are the benefits of air duct cleaning?

Having your ducts cleaned helps:

  • Improve the air quality in your home
  • Ensure your furnace and air conditioner operates at maximum efficiency.

Soiled ventilation systems can also lead to clogged AC coils and furnace filters as well as contaminated blower wheels that could result in a breakdown.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

If you have noticed that your dryer is running longer than it used to you may need to have the dryer vent cleaned. Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can be cleaned easily be the homeowner, but others aren’t that easy and may require the use of special tools and equipment. We have tools specifically designed to clean dryer vents and with these tools we are able to do a thorough job of cleaning even the most difficult installations. While dryer vents are routinely blocked with lint, animal nesting is also another frequent cause of dryer vent blockage and our equipment allows us to remove these blockages as well. Another problem created by blocked dryer vents serving gas dryers is the possibility of carbon monoxide seepage into your home. If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, CO can back up into the home.
