Air Duct Cleaning
Your air ducts can become a major source of indoor air pollution. Every time you run your heating and cooling system, airborne contaminants, including dust, pet dander, pollens and molds, are pulled into the ducts. Over time, these contaminants build up inside the ductwork, creating a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, fungi and other microbes. These contaminants can also significantly decrease the efficiency of your heating or cooling system.
Air duct cleaning is a proactive solution to these problems. It can enhance the indoor air quality of your home or business, eliminate built-up dirt and contaminants, and extend the life of your heating and cooling systems.

The Importance Of Regular Professional Cleaning
Many homeowners make the mistake of assuming their carpet and upholstery are clean just because they look clean. What they may not know is that, over time, even the most spotless looking carpets and upholstery collect germs, dust and soil below the surface. Did you know that even with regular vacuuming dirt, dander and allergens can get embedded deep into your carpet fibers. Additionally, regular traffic through your home can cause “distortion” or crushing to carpet fibers. Regular professional cleaning and application of our protector helps slow down that process and keep your carpet looking beautiful as long as possible.

What Causes a Clogged Dryer Vent?
A clogged dryer vent is caused by the build-up of lint in the dryer ventilation system. There are many reasons a clothes dryer vent may become clogged. First, the complex construction of new homes built today tends to have dryers located away from an outside wall. This means dryers tend to be vented longer distances creating more bends in the vent through the home. The additional length creates more places for lint to collect or for animals and birds to hide. Secondly, dryer vents are often made from flexible plastic or foil duct, which may be easily kinked or crushed where they exit the dryer and enter the wall or floor. Ducts made of this material are more likely to sag and let lint build up at low points than ridge metal or UL approved flexible metal ducts. Poorly connected internal ducts can also trap lint. Screens or cages at the duct termination are helpful to prevent animals from getting into the exhaust from the outside, but if they are not properly cleaned and maintained they can also become clogged and restrict air flow.
Lint and debris can build up in the clothes dryer vent blocking air flow and creating potentially hazardous conditions including the possibility for an exhaust fire or carbon monoxide intrusion (gas clothes dryers). “The U.S. Fire Administration, National Fire Data Center reports that there are over 12,700 home fires per year associated with clothes dryer fires resulting in 15 deaths and 300 injuries, and 88 million dollars in property loss.”*
Along with the water vapor evaporated from the wet clothes, the exhaust stream carries lint – highly flammable particles of clothing made of cotton and polyester – through the ventilation duct. Lint can accumulate in the exhaust duct, reducing the dryer’s ability to expel the heated water vapor, which then accumulates as heat energy within the machine. As the dryer overheats, mechanical failures (thermostat, limit switch, damaged screen, or crushed hose) can trigger sparks which cause the lint trapped in the dryer vent to burst into flames.
Dryer Efficiency & Energy Savings
A restricted dryer vent reduces air flow and causes your dryer to run hotter and longer, substantially impacting energy efficiency. Excess heat created by poor air flow can ruin your clothes, add dollars to your home’s energy bill and increase the wear and tear on your appliance. If your dryer takes twice as long to dry clothes as it should, the number of loads that it will dry in its lifetime is substantially reduced. Having your dryer vent cleaned helps reduce energy consumption, operating costs and the possibility of a fire.

Screens may be present at the duct termination and can accumulate lint and restrict air flow.
Indoor Air Quality
A clogged dryer vent does not allow for the clothes dryer to exhaust properly. Gas clothes dryers that become clogged have the potential to cause Carbon Monoxide to back fill into your home. Carbon Monoxide poisoning is very dangerous and can be fatal with prolonged exposure.
The complex construction of new homes built today tends to have dryers located away from an outside wall. This means dryers tend to be vented longer distances creating more bends in the vent run to accommodate the extended path they must take through the home. The additional length create more places for lint to collect or for animals and birds to hide.

Roughly 5,500 house fires each year are caused by fires in a home fireplace chimney. The culprit in most chimney fires is usually creosote – a chemical substance formed by burning wood. Creosote builds up inside the chimney and is a highly flammable substance that can easily ignite and cause a fire. Fire experts recommend chimney cleaning after every 50 fires or so.
Creosote and soot builds up over time on the interior walls of your chimney, obstructing the draft needed by the furnace or fireplace. The result is increased risk of a chimney fire. When a chimney fire happens, dangerous amounts of smoke and carbon monoxide can back up into the house, creating a potentially deadly hazard for residents. During a chimney fire temperatures inside the chimney often exceed 2000 degrees, which can destroy your chimney and may set the house on fire. CleanItGreen has the expertise and equipment to do a safe and thorough cleaning of your fireplace chimney.
Chimney cleaning removes creosote to ensure the safe operation of your fireplace. The chimney is cleaned from the bottom with steel brushes. We scrub and sweep the interior walls to loosen the debris build-up. We clean the firebox, smoke chamber, damper, smoke shelf and flue liner. All debris is vacuumed away and removed, using our powerful vacuum. You get the peace of mind of knowing your fireplace is clean and safe.
