So glad we provide full service cleaning. We climbed up on a clients roof and found that the dryer vent was completely clogged. Not only was this stressing out the dryer by making it work harder, it also because of that created a perfect environment for a fire.
Clean Air Duct
Not one of our most dramatic and shocking before and after pictures to the uninitiated. However, if you suffer from allergies or Asthma if your air ducts look like the before picture… that can be a big deal between a good day and a not so good day if you have to have the air or heat on.
Clean Dryer Vents
We found quite a bit of lint on the inside and outside of this dryer vent. Lint is so dangerous as the fibers are so small and susceptible to any spark.
Dirty Double Dryer Vents
These two dryer vent pipes are amazing that they did not completely fail our clients dryer causing it to overheat as they were so clogged with lint and debris.
More Double Dryer Vents
These two dryer vent pipes in the attic of our client are amazing that they did not completely fail our clients dryer causing it to overheat as they were so clogged with lint and debris.
Clogged Air Return
This air return is definitely blocked by the dust and debris.
This isn’t normal dust and debris. This is heavier and is more likely construction / renovation debris.
Curved Air Ducts
Curved air ducts have their own issues. The curvature of the air duct channels the air. The curvature also creates areas for dust and debris to collect.
Dirty Air Duct
Yet another dirty air duct for us to clean. It is a wooden one which makes it potentially more difficult to clean due to the very nature of wood if there are any rough spots. Because it is wooden it is really important to clean it for safety reasons.
Blocked Air Flow
Our finding a newspaper blocking half of the air vent was an interesting find. It also was just enough to block the air flow which makes the ventilation system work harder.
So much dust
This particular clients home’s duct work had an amazing amount of dust and other debris in their duct work.
We can clean wooden vents in older homes. If anything, wooden vents are more vulnerable to collecting dust. The natural imperfections in wood collect passing dust and dirt particles.
We had not cleaned our air ducts in some time, so there was extra work to be done to get them clean. They worked with energy and efficiency to get a superior job done. The two men worked as a great team – each humming along on his share of the work, and also in constant communication with each other. Their invoice matched their quote.
First time ever having the air ducts cleaned in my 53 year old Schaumburg. I have a dog and a cat so it was a little overdue! Very happy with the job Indoor Air did. They explained the process thoroughly, pricing was aggressive, and the worker did a great job. Nice to be able to run the air now and not have dust flying around! Highly recommended
The technician arrived promptly at 7:30 and was very courteous and careful. He explained all that he would be doing, made sure to answer all my questions, and kept me notified of his progress. Our dryer vent is very difficult, but he worked for almost 2 hours to get it done right. He was super conscientious and really did a thorough job throughout the house.
When I called the owner she got back to me right away and was able to schedule a fairly quick time slot. They arrived right on time and the gentleman was very professional and very clean and thorough. They are just the best long-term due to quality of work and long time standing in community.
Everything went great. The two technicians who came out explained everything, showed me some tips, and were very professional and efficient. My wife and I were moving into an old house with our new baby, and we wanted to clean out the system (not sure that had ever been done before). The Indoor Air guys did a great job, and left the house feeling and smelling much better.
