Anyone who has ever seen the amount of lint that can come out of a dryer venting system during a professional cleaning would not hesitate for even a second to schedule an annual dryer vent cleaning. Dryer lint build-up is one of the most common causes of house fires, but because the dryer vent is hidden from view, it is too easy to put out of mind. However, there can be an immense amount of lint jammed inside your dryer’s venting pipe. A highly-combustible material, lint can become a very real fire hazard. The chimney professionals at Hudson Chimney have also seen blockages in dryer exhaust vents from nests of small animals and insects and damages to the venting system or an improper connection. A compromised vent will not exhaust properly to the outside. Accumulated lint can lead to reduced airflow and this can cause overheating which could easily start a fire. Most people assume that their dryer’s lint trap does a good enough job when it comes to catching lint, and while it generally does, “good enough” has not been enough for some. U.S. fire departments report an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings each year, causing an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss.
There is some disagreement within the industry about the best method for cleaning air ducts. The two schools of thought are the “negative air” approach and the rotary brush and vacuum approach. We believe that both air duct cleaning methods can achieve great results in most situations when performed properly by competent technicians. However, our focus has always been on high quality residential service. The type of residential duct work commonly used in homes in the South poses unique challenges to duct cleaners because it is soft, flexible, and does not go in straight lines. Firms using the negative air approach are especially challenged by this type of duct work, as that process was originally designed to work well on the rigid metal duct work commonly found in the North and in large commercial buildings. The tools used to agitate the duct work in negative air cleaning are very difficult to get all the way into your duct work and can damage the lining of the ducts we find in most residences in the greater Jacksonville area.
Nowadays most houses have a central air conditioning system linking air ducting to move conditioned indoor air throughout the house. Gradually, the air system and the linking air ducting will collect dust and other contaminants, which can trigger the blood circulation of unclean and contaminated indoor air through your house. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind health products that we do not believe much about are filthy air system and a duct which could be the unhealthiest product in our house.

If during this period you are not satisfied with the work that was done for any reason, please contact us so we can make it right.
The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:
Of the cleaning services in which we are proud to be specialists, air duct cleaning is by far the one that requires the most trust between the consumer and the air duct cleaning service provider. There are many unscrupulous air duct cleaning companies purporting to be something they are not, many advertisements using unrealistic scare tactics, and of course bait and switch tactics are prevalent in the industry. You need to feel confident in the professionalism of the firm you hire to clean your air ducts because you are asking someone to clean the inside of your duct work, where it can be difficult to see the results of the job.
