In case you’ve wondered whether you should get your HVAC ducts and dryer vents cleaned, below are a couple of reasons why it might be a good idea.
Given all the dirt and construction debris generated by remodeling work, we have the ducts cleaned for all of our home transformations before listing them for sale. Because we transformed her neighbor’s home, Jill thought she’d have the ducts cleaned on her house while they were nearby.
She had been concerned about snoring that her sleep app detected and was worried she might have sleep apnea which runs in her family. The night after the ducts were cleaned she barely snored at all and that trend has continued! The guy from the company said their recommendation is to get the ducts cleaned every four years — or every two years if you have pets! Definitely more often than … never.
If that doesn’t convince you, last month several emergency vehicles lined the block as they worked hard to put out a fire on Harrison Blvd. Evidently, the fire was started while the occupant’s clothes dryer was running. Lint is very flammable and builds up in the vent over time and combined with the heat of a dryer can result in a damaging fire.
For your health and safety, we highly recommend getting your HVAC ducts and dryer vents cleaned!
