Cleaning Your Dryer Vent Can Save Your Home

Clogged dryer vents are the number one cause of dryer fires. Every year there are more than 18,000 structure fires caused by clogged or blocked dryer vents according to the National Fire Protection Agency.

It’s important that you clean the dryer vent often since lint buildup happens quickly.

It’s not enough to clean the lint screen after every load. You can’t see more than 98% of the dryer vent. Most of the dryer vent is confined inside the walls, floor joist, crawl space or attic.

Cleaning the dryer vent also helps the energy efficiency of the dryer saving you money.

If you haven’t had your dryer vents thoroughly cleaned in awhile, it’s time. Don’t take the chance of losing your home in a dryer fire.

We Offer Duct Cleaning

Particle dust will increase in your home if the ducts are dirty.

Ducts are mostly filled with dust, but also can harbor mold, insects, lint and debris all of which affect the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.

One of the most important part of a duct cleaning is the inspection to determine if there are ways that water and dirt can enter the system so that those issues can be addressed. Properly sealing air leaks can save on heating and cooling bills.

Duct cleaning involves the cleaning of the various heating and cooling system components including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain (drip) pans, fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

If you haven’t had your ducts cleaned in a few years, it may be time. Give us a call. (303) 596-3106.

Vacuuming Tips to Keep Your Carpets Fresh and Looking New

While it takes the machinery a professional carpet cleaner has to truly clean your carpets, here are a few tips for keeping your carpet fresh in between cleanings.

Slow down. If you move in slow, repetitive, overlapping strokes, you will be able to remove nearly 80 percent of the dirt and dust while making high-traffic patterns less noticeable.

Dust before you vacuum. Dusting the furniture, blinds, windowsills and ceiling fans will leave fallen dust particles for the vacuum to pick up.

Minimize the dirt from foot traffic. While it’s inevitable that some dirt will follow you in from outside, good mats at each entrance will help keep the dirt tracked into your carpet to a minimum. Newer entryway mats can be cleaned in the washing machine.

Stick to a schedule. Once a week vacuuming is sufficient for most homes. If you have pets who shed heavily, however, you may have to vacuum more than once a week to keep the pet hair picked up.

Choose the right attachment. Most vacuums come with a small upholstery brush that is good for furniture and mattresses. The round brush is good for dusting steps and windowsills.

Choose the right height. Your vacuum will pick up dust and dirt more efficiently if it is set to match the pile in your carpet.

Make multiple passes. In very lightly trafficked areas, a single pass might do, but any area that is used regularly, and particularly if you have pets that shed, multiple passes are necessary to get the carpet clean.

Spot-treat spills. Speed is a must for treating spills. Blot spills with a clean cloth or paper towel. Then treat with the All-Pro, environmentally-safe carpet cleaner.
