Air duct cleaning is an excellent way to remove dirt, dust, debris and other contaminants from your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
Cleaning extends far beyond the ducts; it covers the entire HVAC system, capturing dust and other debris from every component.

As the Environmental Protection Agency notes, there is “a growing body of evidence” that indoor air is dirtier than outdoor air.
This is not a reflection of your housekeeping. Changing air ducts whenever they get dirty is smart, but it’s not a cure-all.
Air ducts get dirty through a combination of factors: Normal living, pets, volatile organic compounds in house cleaners and other items, kitchen and bathroom activities, and animals that penetrate the HVAC system, to name a few. (In New York winters rodents especially like to burrow inside buildings, where they often dislodge ducts and leave droppings on HVAC components.)
Taken individually, various household activities create little debris if they escape the HVAC filter. But together they generate a sizeable accumulation of unwanted particles inside the air ducts, where they impede the airflow. This makes the HVAC system work harder to deliver heated or cooled air, and the added work can shorten the motor’s life.
In the typical home, the HVAC system starts and stops at least several times a day – more often in severe weather. This recirculates the contaminated air and can damage your indoor air quality and contribute headaches, itchy eyes and sore throats.
A clean HVAC system can give you healthier air and more efficient heating and cooling.
Dapper Ducts follows the guidelines established by the National Air Duct Cleaning Association. They call for a detailed cleaning of the HVAC system from one end to the other.
The checklist includes cleaning:
• Air ducts
• Drain pan
• Air plenum (a component in the aid delivery system)
• Blower motor and assembly
• Heat exchanger
• Air filter
• Air cleaner
As you can see, this list covers any place that can attract dust, dirt, spores, bacteria or other unwanted material. We remove the dirt and other debris and remove it from your property (but you’re welcome to see the amount first to get an idea of what was lurking in your indoor air supply.)
Cleaning the blower-fan blades, for example, will reduce airborne particles. Cleaning the blower fan can boost energy efficiency. Evaporator coils create moisture, which can cause particles to adhere to the coils. The collector pan and its drain spout can collect debris and water. They’re all high on our list of items to clean thoroughly!
HVAC cleaning requires modern technology and an old-school work ethic. Our technicians are determined to dig into hard-to-reach spots to get every speck of dust they can find. They bring this work ethic to every job!
Our techs are certified, experienced and trained, and they take pride in their work. They’re experts on all types of ducts – flexible ducts, metal ducts, glass wool duct boards and plastic ducts.
There are two main steps to HVAC cleaning: First we break contaminants loose and then we collect the contaminants.
Step 1 involves pushing and shoving long brushes and using “elbow grease” with other tools to jar the contaminants loose.
Step 2 involves some incredibly powerful vacuum cleaning equipment which inhales the contaminants and uses special HEPA filters to make sure none get inside your home. (HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. These filters are especially good at reducing allergens and other indoor air pollutants.)
• Our equipment lets us see what’s inside the ductwork. If needed, we cut access holes to loosen and remove the debris. (We replace the holes so expertly that you won’t notice the work until we show you.)
• In our cleaning, we also inspect the ductwork for leaks or other problems. Ductwork usually is very durable, but it can dislodge over time – thanks to animals or big city vibrations – or develop holes that let air escape rather than heat or cool your home.

• We can install ultraviolet lights inside your system to kill bacteria and ward off the threat of mold. Hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities have been using UV lights for years and report a big benefit.
• We can apply sanitizer to your HVAC system to offset unwanted odors. We use only ecologically safe sanitizing chemicals allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Don’t take the clothes dryer for granted. It can set off a fire if you let the lint build up too much!
New York City has hundreds of fires every month, and more than a few can be traced to a clothes dryer system that needed cleaning.
This is why fire experts recommend professional dry cleaning:
• “:The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them… The leading factor contributing to the ignition of home fires involving clothes dryers was failure to clean, accounting for one-third (33 percent) of dryer fires.” The National Fire Protection Association
• “Have your dryer cleaned regularly by a professional, especially if it is taking longer than normal for clothes to dry.” The Fire Administration Agency.
There are several warning signals when your dryer acts up.
• Lint and other debris accumulate around the outside vent.
• The clothing is extra hot when you take it from the dryer.
• The dryer itself is hotter than normal.
• There’s a burning smell.
• Clothes are still damp at the end of the recommended drying time.
Changing the lint trap before every use is a good first step, but even then some lint will escape into the vent and the duct.
Eventually the growing collection of lint will raise the odds of a fire as well as slow the drying process.
Dapper Ducts of New York is a fully qualified, commercial dryer vent cleaning company.
We can modernize outdated dryer systems by using correctly sized exhaust systems, providing better material for hoses and changing the venting path.
Modern equipment can increase safety. One example: Metal ducts are non-flammable, so you may want them to replace the still-common plastic transition ducts that link the dryer to the wall.
Dapper Ducts serves all of New York City. We can handle dryers in businesses and homes, we are available 24/7, and we guarantee our work.
You will get peace of mind and a safer, more efficient clothes dryer!
