Maintaining the indoor air quality in your home or commercial building sometimes means doing a bit more than vacuuming carpets and changing your air filter. For some buildings, it may mean regularly investing in both dryer vent cleaning and bathroom exhaust cleaning. If you’re a resident of Honolulu, HI, or any of the beautiful surrounding communities, then you’re in luck. Hawaii Indoor Air Specialists are here to clean your vents and exhaust fans flawlessly to improve your indoor air quality and explain why this is necessary for homes and businesses throughout the area.
Your dryer vent is responsible for carrying hot air out of the appliance and releasing it outside. It’s a simple job, but one that may encounter and cause issues over time. These issues arise because, along with hot air, vents also serve as a passage for lint that your dryer’s lint trap cannot properly capture. Over time, this lint builds up and creates blockages in the dryer ductwork itself, leading to a host of potentially very dangerous issues.
It’s estimated that a home fire is reported approximately every 24 seconds within the United States. Among those hundreds of thousands of reports each year, a large number of them are caused directly by dryers. In the most recent information provided by the National Fire Protection Association, it’s estimated that an astounding 27 percent of dryer fires were directly caused by a buildup of lint, dust, or other fibers. These fibers are extremely flammable and often only need a single spark to be set alight. Keeping your dryer vents and ducts clean with the help of a professional is the best way to ensure you never encounter this emergency in your home or business.
Additionally, having a clogged dryer duct or vent is a huge burden on your indoor air quality. Because the vent cannot push hot air and other debris properly through the vents, it gets unleashed into your home instead, meaning your air quality takes a huge hit every time you dry a load of laundry. Let the experienced professionals at Hawaii Indoor Air Specialists ensure you’re breathing easy by providing you with quick, safe, and thorough dryer vent cleaning services in Honolulu, HI, today.
Are your clothes taking more than one drying cycle to dry completely? You might have an obstruction or blockage in your home’s dryer vent. Clogged dryer vents and ducts also lead to decreased efficiency from the appliance, meaning you’re spending more energy for inferior results with every load of laundry you do – something that no one wants to deal with. Removing the lint build-up from your dryer vent can reduce the amount of time it takes to fully dry your clothes and drastically reduce your risk of a dryer fire. Other benefits of having your dryer vent cleaned include a lower electricity bill and a longer-lasting dryer appliance with fewer repairs.
Aside from increasing the efficiency of your dryer itself, keeping your dryer working properly and pushing heat out through unclogged vents is a great way to keep your home cool. This can be crucial for homes throughout Honolulu, HI, and surrounding communities during the island’s sweltering, humid summer months. Keep the heat outside where it belongs and reduce the strain on your air conditioning system by letting us handle your dryer vent cleaning process for you.
Our cleaning process uses positive air pressure in tandem with compressed air agitation devices. This method of cleaning is much more effective than the typical roto-brush method. As strong air pressure is channeled through the dryer vent, we simultaneously clean the ducting with our air agitation devices. Besides lint, birds and other pests may also be causing blockages in your dryer vent. Our trained technicians at HIAS can assist with any dryer vent issue you may have, so call today!
Bathroom exhaust fans are designed purely to help you keep the air quality in your bathroom as high as possible. When turned on, the fan blades inside the exhaust system spin to pull odors, humidity, excess moisture, and other types of pollutants up through the vent and outside (or into an attic space where it can be properly dispersed). However, during this process, the fans also tend to pull up hair, dirt, dust, and other pollutants that clog the fan, causing the blades to spin less effectively or otherwise clogging the passage through which moisture would leave the room.
First, this means that you have a whole load of dirt, dust, and other pollutants hanging over your head every time you enter your bathroom, lowering the indoor air quality drastically in this space. However, the initial threat of the clog itself isn’t the only issue you’ll need to deal with if your exhaust fan becomes clogged. If fans are no longer to perform the duty of removing excess moisture from a room, you may begin to experience dangerous mold and mildew growth. Mildew may create serious breathing issues, especially for those with asthma, allergies, or other existing respiratory issues.
Hawaii is nothing if not humid, so it’s of extreme importance that all of your home’s exhaust systems are working properly to keep the moisture to a minimum. The Hawaii Indoor Air Specialists are here to help you by providing thorough, fast, and affordable cleaning services for your bathroom exhaust fan. We use a combination of industry expertise, experience, and specialized tools to get the job done. After the cleaning, we always perform an inspection to ensure the job lives up to our high standards and that you’ll be getting the clean, low-humidity air you deserve.
Having your bathroom exhaust cleaned regularly can help to prevent mold and mildew growth. Your bathroom exhaust works hard to remove hot air and moisture when you take a shower. Mold and mildew can grow anywhere and on almost any surface as long as moisture is present. All the dust, dirt, and debris in your exhaust help feed the growth of those spores. It is important to have the cover, motor, and exhaust duct cleaned to ensure strong exhausting airflow.
There are many reasons to keep the vents and exhaust systems throughout your home clean and clear of hair, dust, and other pollutants, including reducing the likelihood of fires happening or mold growing in some of your home or business’s most important spaces. However, there’s another reason that you simply can’t afford to ignore: you, your family, your friends, or your customers all deserve to breathe clean, cool air year-round. The Hawaii Indoor Air Specialists are here to make that happen conveniently and affordably for you, no matter the season. Contact us today to learn more about our bathroom exhaust cleaning and dryer vent cleaning services and about why these duties are so important to the health and safety of your building and everyone inside.
