DON’T FORGET YOUR DUCTS!
It’s important to clean your air ducts after a disaster strikes.
After a fire, smoke, soot, and odors can linger, further damaging your home and threatening your health. Furthermore, damaging smoke and soot spread to other rooms in your home through the HVAC/duct system and settles within the ductwork. Therefore every time you run your HVAC system, these particles are circulated throughout your home. Similarly. mold is another problem that can spread via your Duct system. Mold can also develop and spread in your Duct System causing even more potential health risks. At ServiceMaster Fuson, we leverage our expertise in cleaning air ducts and vents to ensure the air in your home is clean and safe.

The amount of time it takes to clean a residential HVAC system can vary depending on the complexity of the system. Once a skilled and trained technician arrives, they should be able to give you an estimate of how long it will take. For standard purposes, we ask for at least 3-5 hours to get the job done right and to your satisfaction.
Your professionals at ServiceMaster by Fuson can schedule a time that is most convenient for your family and when most of the household is not present. Depending on the magnitude of the job, we should have your house back in normal operation in a matter of a few hours.
We recommend air duct cleaning every three to five years. Customers who fall in the following conditions should consider more frequent cleaning of their duct systems:
- Pets that shed a lot
- Recent water damage
- Home remodeling or improvements taking place
- Residents with asthma or allergens
- Humid or moist environmental conditions
For safety, the technician should be shown where the fire extinguisher and first aid kit is located. It is best to provide them with any emergency contact information.
Duct cleaning can be noisy. Therefore It is best to do it when most family members are not present.
Clear work areas. Ask your technician how much space is needed around each air vent register and how much space they will need around the furnace and air conditioner. It is best to have these areas cleared beforehand.
Prior to cleaning, perform a walkthrough of your home to go over where protective coverings such as drop and corner guards will be placed. Also it is necessary to go over the ducts, how they will be cleaned, and the accessibility of it.
Air duct cleaning helps:
- Reduce energy costs in your home
- Reduce the potential for mold growth
- Improve indoor air quality
- Increase air circulation and flow
- Increase your home system performance
- Extend HVAC equipment life
To help maintain clean air ducts, change air filters based on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Regular vacuuming will also help reduce pet dander and airborne dirt and debris.
Dryer Vent Cleaning Bay City, MI
Most people forget about their dry vents. They clean the filter in the dryer, but not the vent itself. Therefore, dryer vents need to be cleaned periodically to reduce the risk of fire. Aside from the fire hazard, having your dryer vents cleaned properly can improve the performance of your dry and reduce the amount of time and efficiency in drying your clothing or bedding. One of the key factors in reduced airflow is lint build up inside the vent tubes in your dryer, the vent tube that leads from your dryer to the exterior vent, and/or the exterior vent itself. When this happens, safety switches used by many dryers manufacturers cycle on and off continuously and can fail over time. Notably, this results in higher costs of operation and could cause a costly and dangerous dryer fire.
Potential Causes of Dryer Fires:
- Clogged or blocked airflow in dryer vents
- Failure of mechanical and/or electrical parts within the dryer
- Improper materials placed in the dryer
- Insufficient airflow as a result of improper installation
Advanced Warning Signs:
- Clothes (especially towels or jeans) that take a longer than expected time to dry
- Clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the cycle. Machine feels hot.
- Dryer vent flapper doesn’t open when the dryer is on
If you notice any of these signs, schedule a professional dryer cleaning or inspection immediately with ServiceMaster by Fuson.
