Where exactly do the Furnace Cleaning Maple missing socks go? If you are like many people you have attempted to crawl into your dryer in an effort to find the socks stuck to the top of the dryer chamber or peered helplessly around hoping to find a corner of your laundry room where these missing socks have accumulated.

If you have tried with no avail to solve the mystery of the missing sock, an air duct cleaning professional can help you. This professional will tell you that the culprit behind the missing sock is actually the dryer itself. Inside the dryer is a vent through which the hot air flows and is removed when the drying cycle is completed.

While this is the purpose of the dryer vent, it becomes a concern when this lint builds up around the vent.

You know how important it is to remove the lint Dryer Vent Cleaning Maple from the lint trap every time you do a load of laundry. Your mother probably taught you that removing this lint will help the machine work properly, and prevent a fire hazard. This is absolutely true, and the reason behind the importance of an air duct cleaning company servicing your dryer vent. Just like the lint trap inside the dryer, your dryer vent can become blocked by a buildup of lint and fibers. Not only does this buildup make it more difficult for your dryer to operate, forcing it to use more energy and even requiring that you run your laundry through the dryer several times, it can also pose a serious fire hazard. A spark from the dryer can ignite this lint, creating a fire that moves quickly through the walls of your home and causing significant damage before you even notice that it has happened.

If you noticed that your dryer has not been functioning properly, has been making strange sounds or has been requiring more cycles to clean your clothing, or have seen a considerable amount of lint outside of the vents behind your home, it may be time to contact an air duct cleaning company. The technician can thoroughly vacuum out the vent as well as the area behind your dryer to help the machine operate properly, and keep your home safe.

Imagine walking down a dirt road; a cool breeze is blowing, and the weather is perfect. Now imagine what happens when a car speeds by, leaving a plume of fine dust in its wake. Frantically, you search for something to cover your face to keep the dust out of your lungs. It’s not a pleasant thought.

Now imagine what it might be like for your A/C unit. Though it is less dramatic, a similar situation can occur every time you walk by your vent. It would seem as though the filter would stop all of the dust that is naturally stirred up, but it doesn’t. Even in the cleanest home, dust particles and pet dander make their way into what can be considered the respiratory system of your home. The solution might be a thorough air duct cleaning.

A tremendous amount of air is sucked into an A/C unit’s intake, sometimes bringing dust with it. Over time, this dust builds up in various places within the unit. Everything that gets past your filter goes into the coil, then the blower, eventually making its way into your ductwork. Year after year, this dust can cause a resistance to proper airflow. Any resistance puts extra strain on your unit, causing higher energy usage and premature wear on the entire system.

A less obvious side effect of dust buildup is allergens, or even mold, being circulated throughout the entire house. Although the science behind the effects of allergens and mold is still developing, an air duct cleaning might be the right solution for your home. Much of the duct system is impossible to visually inspect without proper equipment. It takes specially trained personnel with the right tools to inspect and clean your duct system.
