Air Duct Cleaning & Maintenance

Even attic ductwork needs to be cleaned every few years

It may be tough to DIY clean these monster ducts. You might want to call BWR.

We Also Clean Air Ducts & Dryer Vents!

Did you know that indoor air can be far more polluted than outdoor air? And it’s mostly about the ducts, the conduits directing air from your heater or air conditioner to your living room.

Most ductwork has a life of 20 to 25 years. And even after 15 years, you may have to replace deteriorating air ducts. We can do that for you.

Until then, your ductwork will last longer if it’s cleaned regularly and maintained. You’ll also breathe easier!

Call us to vacuum your air ducts with our commercial grade equipment. We’ll clear out the dust and debris that have accumulated in the venting. We’ll inspect the integrity of the ducting in your home, and we’ll seal, repair, or replace any damaged portions of it.

Air ducts should be professionally cleaned every 3-5 years.

We Do the Cleaning Ourselves — No Subcontractors

Most appliance repair companies don’t install the ductwork or even clean the air ducts themselves. For that, they call subcontractors.

But at BWR Heating and Cooling, we don’t hire subcontractors. All work is performed by BWR’s professionally trained, licensed, and insured technicians, guaranteeing you the highest quality on every job, from installing complex HVAC systems to vacuuming out the ducts.

All estimates for new work are free.

What Happens When You Don’t Clean the Ducts

Indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. You might invest in a state-of-the-art filter for your HVAC system, but what’s the point if you never clean the ducts that direct that filtered air to all rooms of the building?

You wouldn’t drink water from dirty pipes, would you?

Dust, mold, pollen, and worse collect in the air ducts. When you switch on the heat or central air conditioning, rushing air stirs up contaminants like:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Bacteria
  • Pet hair
  • Dust mite feces
  • Dander
  • Insect feces
  • Rodent feces
  • Smoke odors
  • Skin flakes
  • Decaying organic matter
  • Viruses
  • Textile fibers
  • Chemical residue

If it all sounds like a toxic waste dump, that’s because it is, in a manner of speaking.

  • The average six-room house will collect 40 pounds of dust in a year.
  • Contaminated air ducts can contribute to air quality that’s worse inside the home than outside — even on a smoggy day.
  • Seniors, young children, and people with dust allergies and asthma are especially vulnerable to hazardous indoor air quality.

DIY Cleaning: Good But Not Great for Air Ducts

While vacuuming and dusting may be part of your weekly cleaning routine, no amount of regular cleaning can eliminate every dust mite or bug dropping in your home. Basic cleaning methods always leave behind contaminants that end up in your air ducts.

Worse, these particles are continually recirculated and concentrated as new contaminants join the mix.

Our Process for Duct Cleaning

Our technicians use powerful state-of-the-art “negative” air equipment to clear your air ducts of dust, debris, pet dander, allergens, and grime. Commercial-grade vacuums remove years of accumulated grime, leaving air ducts almost like new.

Once the vacuuming is complete, our technicians run a thorough check of your ducts and entire HVAC system to ensure they’re in prime condition.

With BWR’s All-Star Healthy Home Services Air Duct Cleaning, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your ventilation system, leading to better health and ultimately a better quality of life.

How Much Does Air Duct Cleaning Cost?

That depends entirely on the size of your home or business and the number of ducts that need cleaning. As with carpet cleaning, there’s no one size fits all charge or approach!

But if you call us, we should be able to quote a ballpark figure over the phone, and our technicians always provide a guaranteed quote before they embark on any job, air duct cleaning included.

Suffice it to say that BWR offers some of the best rates for duct cleaning in the LA metro area, and it goes without saying that we give you the very best service.

How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?

Every 3 to 5 years! That’s the standard recommendation. But you may need to have air ducts cleaned more often if you:

  • Live in a dusty area.
  • Have a house full of pets or clutter.
  • Have a mold problem in your home.
  • Run your HVAC system often.
  • Suffer from breathing problems.

Pay attention to the warning signs. If you find yourself sniffling from morning until night, or experiencing frequent headaches, it may be time to clean the ducts. If rodents or insects have taken up residence in your home, call us to clean the ducts.

Amazing service start to finish! I have some severe lung issues and with the amazing service of their whole team, we were even able to improve the air quality in my home.

A whole new A/C and heat system, careful attention to detail, and a very professional team. I highly recommend BWR!

Dryer Vent Cleaning

The same powerful commercial vacuums that clean your ducts of dust and debris can be used on any air vent in your home or business. This includes dryer vents, which, as anyone who runs the dryer often knows, become clogged with lint over time.

Clogged dryer vents are more than a nuisance. They can present a significant fire hazard in some cases. Even if your dryer is smart enough to shut down before it reaches the danger point, that clogged exhaust vent forces your dryer to work much harder than it needs to, shortening appliance life and raising the energy bill.

Newer smart dryers may stop working altogether.

Just like ductwork, dryer vents should be professionally cleaned every few years. The more you run your dryer, the more often the vent will need cleaning.

Call us to vacuum your dryer vent, if your smart dryer is beginning to flash warning messages, or if you notice your energy bill climbing ever higher. If you like, we’ll inspect your ductwork while we’re on the service trip.
