Why Air Ducts Need Cleaning
Air Ducts are easy to forget
about, no one looks inside their air vents very often. But
what you don't see can hurt you. Studies have shown
that in a typical air-conditioned building, occupants inhale
1-2 tablespoons of contaminants every day. This situation
poses unnecessary health and sanitation issues.
Most people would never consider
drinking out of a cup that had not been washed yet they
continue to breathe air circulated from air ducts that have
never been cleaned. Air Duct cleaning is necessary on a
regular basis to remove dust, bacteria and other harmful
contaminates out of the indoor air we breathe.
Imperial Carpet Care is your
one stop indoor air quality expert. Be sure not to overlook
cleaning your air ducts just because they are "Out
of sight, out of mind."

What We Do...
We clean the vent using specialized tools that allow us to
penetrate and clean the entire vent system. While this is
done, the lint is blown out leaving no mess in the system.
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.
we also clean the interior of the dryer to remove the highly
flammable lint that can build up around the motor, electrical
wiring and switches.
The Local Fire
Marshal recommends that:
The inside of
your dryer cabinet should be cleaned periodically by a qualified
individual, every two or three years, or more frequently,
