Most homeowners do not know the last time their ducts have been cleaned, or they have not had them done in a long time. Dirty air ducts are a breeding ground for harmful microorganisms such as mildew and bacteria. These particles can irritate the skin, trigger asthma and allergies, and cause respiratory issues. Air Duct Cleaning in Ankeny is so crucial. Call Supreme Air Duct Cleaning today for any questions.
Air Duct Cleaning
Air ducts collect all types of debris including bacteria, pet dander and mold spores. These materials are circulated throughout the house, irritating people with allergies, asthma, and causing sinus and respiratory conditions. The duct cleaning process removes these contaminants and makes it easier to breath, improving the overall health of your home. Are you interested in air duct cleaning yet?
A burning smell when you turn your heat on is not normal. This is a sign of a problem with your heating system, or furnace. It should be fixed as soon as you can to avoid an emergency. Smoke could indicate a gas furnace malfunction or a fire inside your vents or chimney.
At Supreme Air Duct Cleaning in Ankeny, our duct cleaners provide a complete service, which includes the cleaning of the ducts as well as coils, motors and bower compartment of the furnace. Every air duct cleaning service booked receives a free dryer vent cleaning too. Air duct cleaning service providers may tell you that they need to apply a chemical biocide to the inside of your ducts as a means to kill bacteria (germs) and fungi (mold) and prevent future biological growth. We do not do this unless deemed necessary if there is a reoccurring mold issue. These chemicals may be effective, but they are not regulated.
To prepare for an appointment, remove any furniture or toys that are located directly beneath a vent. The technician will need to be able to easily access all vents, equipment, and other items. When the technician arrives, you should be there to welcome them. However, they can often work independently. You should make sure they are aware of the location of all vents and any obstructions (such as children’s or pet beds) that may prevent them from accessing the vents.
You may need to clean your ducts every 10-15 years depending on how big your home is and when you last had them cleaned. Supreme Air Duct Cleaning can help to prevent the growth and spread of harmful organisms like fungus if you’ve recently experienced pest infestations or have had water damage.
You can use this simple test to determine how often you should clean your ducts. Remove the vent cover from the wall or floor and look at the ductwork. It’s time to contact an HVAC specialist if the ductwork is covered in dust, mildew and mold. It’s best to leave the house if the smell is very strong.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
The dryer vent is crucial in ensuring that hot air from the dryer is safely transported away from your laundry room. Lint and other particles from your clothing can get into the vent, and cause it to clog. This can become a problem if you do not regularly empty the lint filter on your dryer. It is important to regularly inspect and clean your dryer vent. You should call Supreme Air Duct Cleaning Ankeny to clean your dryer vent if you smell burning when turning on the heater. We provide a free dryer vent cleaning with every air duct cleaning service.
When you smell burning when you turn on your dryer, it is best to stop the system immediately. Even if there is no immediate problem, it’s still a good thing to turn off your dryer. This will help protect your home and prevent fires in the laundry room, or any other part of your house.
It’s essential to clean your dryer vent line but your HVAC system too. The dryer vents are often the cause of fires in dryers.

You should call an HVAC specialist to fix major problems with the heating system. At Supreme Air Duct Cleaning we do not do repairs on the system itself, we clean all ductwork and the blower compartment of the furnace. However, certain odors can indicate that a quick solution is possible. Most often, dust accumulation is to blame for the burning smell coming from your heater. Dust can accumulate on the inside of a system when a furnace is idle for the entire summer. The dust in the furnace will be burned and then flow into your vents.
To avoid this, you should change your air filters on a regular basis. You can choose from a range of sizes and types, including disposables up to two inches in thickness or reusable filters with a three- or 4-inch thickness. The general rule is that you should replace your filter at least once every sixty days. At Supreme Air Duct Cleaning we will replace your air filter for you during the cleaning service if it looks like it needs it.
To remove hair, dust and other particles, vacuum regularly around your vents. To keep the vents and ductwork in top condition, you can purchase a cleaning kit.
Gas furnaces may emit a smell similar to rotten eggs when they are turned on. This could indicate that there is a problem in the gas supply line. The situation is dangerous and needs immediate attention.
It is the ammonia that emits a rotten egg odor. Over time, it may build-up in your furnace causing corrosion or even an explosion. You should shut down your furnace or gas lines immediately in the event of a suspected leak.
Another sign of a problem with your furnace would be the smell of burnt plastic. This can be caused by worn components such as capacitors or plastic-coated wiring. To avoid further damage, you should contact a technician immediately if this smell is noticed. You can turn your thermostat off and open some windows to allow fresh air inside if you are unable to locate the cause. Then you can determine if the odor has a toxic component. Open the windows and door to your house until you no longer smell the bad odor.
Dust and debris settled on your heater’s heat exchangers and burners as it hibernated during the summer. This dust will ignite and emit the burning smell when you turn on your heater again. If the smell doesn’t disappear within a couple of minutes or lingers, it could mean that there is something else wrong.
It’s possible that a misplaced toy, or another object, fell into the vents or air ducts of your heating system when it was not in use. The same smell can be caused when your heating system is turned on. Contact Supreme Air Duct Cleaning Ankeny to be put on our schedule.
