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."

Protect Your Family

Did you know...

  • Children are more affected by polluted indoor air because they breathe faster and are closer to the ground where concentrations are higher? -Dept. of Consumer Affairs
  • Asthmatics, the elderly and people with lung diseases are more sensitive to pollutants?
  • Indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air, and most people spend 60-90% of their time indoors?

  • If you or someone you love suffer from headaches, fatigue, or congestion
  • If a smoker lives on the premises
  • If you have pets that live with you
  • If your home has a musty smell or other odors you can't identify
  • If you live or work in a high occupancy area
  • If you live with children or elderly people

Dryer Vent Cleaning

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.

Where possible, 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, depending on usage

Vents and ducts should be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis

Warning Signs...

Advance warning signs that you have a problem are:

  • Clothes (especially towels and jeans) take a very long time to dry, or
  • Clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the cycle, or
  • Dryer keeps shutting off before the end of the timer, or
  • Visible lint accumulates behind the dryer
