Air Duct Cleaning


Concealed behind your walls and mostly ignored, your air ducts serve as vital pathways that deliver warm and cool air throughout your home during the year. While they may be unseen, your air ducts are working nearly year round, whenever you have your air conditioner or furnace running. Attached to your HVAC system, air ducts transfer the air from these systems throughout your home. What many homeowners don't realize, though, is that your air ducts, in nearly constant use, continually accumulate dust, grime, debris, pet dander and allergens throughout the year. 

Things to Know About Air Duct Cleaning 


Simply living in your home creates dust and dirt.  Have you ever seen dust floating in the air in your home when the sun shines in?  That dust, dirt, pet dander and those allergens get pulled into the air handling system in your home. It builds up in the ductwork, some of it get recirculated back into your home and some of it is captured by the air filter if the one you use is of a good quality. Eventually enough builds up to the point where more of it blows back into your home.  Your furnace or air conditioner must run longer to cool or heat your home which costs you more in utility bills.  With a service call from Sears Air Duct Cleaning you can feel comfortable in knowing that that accumulation of Dust, Dirt, dander and allergens has been cleaned from your HVAC duct system. 


The Air Duct Cleaning Process

Once on the scene, trained Sears professionals utilize powerful, truck-mounted equipment to clear your air ducts of dust, debris, pet dander, allergens and grime. This powerful suction equipment essentially vacuums out years of accumulated dust from the air ducts, leaving them clean and clear. Once finished, our technicians remove all equipment and make sure that your ducts and HVAC unit are restored to their former condition.


Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC System Efficiency

Your HVAC unit and air ducts deliver heated or cooled air throughout your home year-in and year-out. The air your HVAC unit produces travels through your air ducts and heats or cools your home through the air vents in each room. The EPA defines the dust and other particles in your home’s air as particulate matter, "a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets." The EPA also notes that, "Particle pollution is made up of a number of components, including acids (such as nitrates and sulfates), organic chemicals, metals, and soil or dust particle."  If you remove your furnace filter and hold it up to the light, you can probably see several hundred of these minuscule particles floating in the air.

While your HVAC filter is designed to trap this particulate matter and prevent it from entering your air ducts, often particles still get through. The amount of particles your HVAC filter traps coincides with the quality of air in your home: the lower the quality of air, the more particles your filter will trap, and the more particles are likely to get through the filter. If these particles are allowed to build up, your HVAC system can become less efficient, having to operate longer to heat or cool your home. An inefficient HVAC system can result in inconsistent heating or cooling, higher utility costs, and expensive HVAC unit repairs (for instance, an A-coil or blower motor) if the problem is left unchecked. Air duct cleaning from Sears, which focuses on the dirt in your air ducts, can also boost the efficiency of a dirty HVAC system, cleaning out the particulate matter that can hinder HVAC effectiveness.

What Causes a Clogged Dryer Vent?


The Importance Of Regular Professional Cleaning.

Dryer vents clog when enough lint accumulates in your ventilation system to cause a blockage.  Dryer vents can clog in a variety of ways.  For one, a lengthy distance on a dryer ventilation system increases the likelihood of bends and curves in the system, where lint is most likely to collect.  Second, dryer ventilation tubes are made from pliable plastic or foil, which can be easily crushed or dented given enough pressure.  Finally, a poorly connected ventilation or dryer vent screen can cause lint to trap.  Some ventilation screens serve to prevent animals from accessing the ventilation, but these screens can also create a barrier for lint.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Quick Facts

  • The US Fire Administration Reports there are more than 12,700 clothes dryer fires annually, resulting in 15 deaths, 300 injuries and $88 million in property loss each year.  "Failure to clean" is the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.
  • A clear dryer vent can improve energy efficiency, allow clothes to dry more quickly, and lower utility costs.
  • Sears technicians clean both the inside and outside portions of the vent.

Called neighbor over to show how air duct was cleaned. She has already scheduled Sears to come out to clean her air ducts and Air handler. They did a great job and explained everything in detail. This is how great Sears was back in the day.

I am not 'sold' on the duct cleaning process used by Sears. Inserting a small 120 psi probe a maximum of 3-5 feet into a duct while pulling a vacuum on the system from the air handler has not convinced me that they remove a 95% of the dust from the ducts as promised. I hope I am incorrect, but I fear that dust anywhere beyond 15 feet from the air probe will NOT be removed. We shall see. Secondly, the technicians left dirt on the floors by almost every duct serviced. Not pleased with that.
