MedCity Duct Cleaning of Rochester, Minnesota
You might not think about your air ducts all too often, but the air that moves through your ducts is constantly circulating throughout your home. Over time, dust, pet hair, cobwebs and more can build up. New construction and remodels can leave drywall and saw dust, and other leftover debris from the build in your ducts. This can leave odors, push dust back into the air and it can also make your heating and cooling system work harder as build up occurs. Having your furnace or air conditioner working harder can shorten the life of the system, costing you money in repairs or replacement.
The same goes for your dryer vent. According to FEMA, an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to U.S. fire departments each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. Over time, lint can escape your dryer and build up in the venting. That build up can restrict airflow making your dryer less efficient by taking longer to dry your clothes, using more energy and putting additional wear on your machine.
