.Two weeks ago I went to clean air ducts in Mansfield Ohio. When I got there the owner said he was nearly cleaning dust bunnies from the floor every day. After carefully cleaning the house ducts and dryer vent I noticed that the new furnace has some return air leaks.
Then I noticed the dryer vent wasn't hooked up correctly. The small particles from the dryer got sucked through the furnace and we ending up in this mans house. Dust bunnies where everywhere! This is because high efficiency furnaces ran the blower motor more often and at a higher volume of air back to the home.
I repaired the air return plenum with clear silicone and DUCK tape for furnaces.
I also fixed the dryer to lint trap to exit without releasing fragments of lint into the basement which ultimately get stuck someone in the home. They are very hard to see until they accumalate.

I am constantly trying to improve my services. One way I do this is by asking my customers exactly what they expect. Everyone is different. What means the most to you? odor removal or just getting rid of the dust! Let me know and I will try to solve the problem when I'm at your home.
After I clean all the air ducts in a home and provide the antimicrobial fogging and citrus scent I will get an instant reaction from everyone about how good the house smells. The real test is when I call back in 2 or 3 weeks and ask how the house feels.
That's when we both know how important cleaning the air ducts really was.

I have some good news to share. I recently found a product that eliminates odors left behind from dead animals that get into a homes crawl space, duct work, chimney, plumbing, etc.
I have a camera to find the critters 1st, so we can get them out of there.

If your house is a cottage or a smaller dwelling, you may notice that your home gets dust balls and lint collecting very quickly on the ceiling, fans and registers. Your air filter will get dirty faster.
When the air handler doesn't have to move the air as far, the air travels at a higher velocity through the house, forcing the dirt to collect much faster in the cracks and crevices.
I see houses with as little as six registers and one return ... this makes your system very efficient, but also very good for making some extra work for you in the maintenance department.

If you have an older home, which most of you do, the likelihood of getting all the dirt out of the system without some kind of camera or video equipment is highly unlikely. I had Duct Hunter out to my house a few years ago. I went back into my house system with video equipment 2 years later and looked at the ductwork. It was filthy! I am thankful that I decided to get the house cleaned again. This time with the aid of cameras to make sure the ducts were clean.
I have found that the older homes here in Fostoria usually have a floor return system and most of the supply ducts are on the 1st floor of the house. On two story homes there is usually some odors, fungus and mold growing in the duct work. Cleaning the return on the older homes can be a bit more challenging for any system, but with Roto Vision, you have a 95% better chance of getting all the dirt out of the system.

Hi, This is Dave Evans
I've been in the service industry all my life. I'm also a EPA certified HVAC technician. What does that mean? It means I could take a test and get at least a 70%. It's the same with every profession-doctors included! It's the experience that really counts and the knowledge to apply what we learn to correctly take care of business. This helps us all get our jobs done efficiently.
There are unions and trade organizations that every professional joins, but the bottom line is "personal conviction to do the best job possible and NOT CUT CORNERS. I believe "a good name is better than anything! My customers tell me all the time, "I can see you know what your doing". I don't belong the NDCA because it's really expensive and "You" the home owner will end up paying for a companies membership in the organization.
What you need to ask over the phone when you call for a technician to clean your air ducts depends on your situation...
You need to ask yourself "Why am I getting this done" ...is it because there's dust everywhere in your house or do you think you got mold issues?
Or is it another reason...for instance just the thought of possibility of sharing another families germs with your family.. or
"Does your entire house smell bad?"...Well, here's a few questions?
Ask them: " Do you have a FREE inspection 1st or do you include it in the duct cleaning service?"
The H-VAC GUY does free inspections & I will tell you the remedy for your situation-even how to get rid of strong odors. We do Fogging-it sanitizes your duct work and get's rid of odors...by the way..you don't have to leave your house-regular fogging won't hurt you, but in some cases like smoke damage or a cat smell-that's a different story.
"Do you have to clean every vent duct in the house?" If you have an odor problem, the answer is yes".... if it's just to clean the dirt out of the duct work the answer might be "no" it depends on the situation...you might have had an addition added to your home last year.
How dirty does it have to be to want to pay for the cleaning?
Ask how much they charge. Typically you can get a technician out to your house for $100 or less to clean the main trunk line, but there are many factors to consider before you ask them to come.
Here's a few thoughts.
"Can your vents be cleaned from the floor level of your home?"
"Is your air handler in a difficult place to service?"
"Even though you may have furnace techs inspect your furnace every year, would you be willing to pay to have the furnace evaporator coil, and squirrel cage examined with a video camera?"
"What do you think they might find?"
"When was the last time you replaced your air filter and what kind do you typically buy?"
"Do you have pets, leaving behind hair and dander?"
"If you hire a company to clean your equipment and air ducts, what kind of guarantee are you looking for?"
The H-Vac Guy is a duct and HVAC equipment cleaning service that guarantees that you will feel and see the results of our service the same day! We video the whole process so you can share it with your family, so they will know it was done right.
