In a typical six-room home, up to 40-lbs of dust is created annually through
everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your
home by taking air in and breathing air out. We generate plenty of contaminants
and air pollutants such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants
are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated five to seven times
per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up
of contaminants in the ductwork.
Dirty ducts may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants
that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions,
autoimmune disorders, or some environmental allergies.
At Pyramid Heating & Cooling, we use specialized blowers, vacuums,
and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout
your home. In addition to your comfort, our company also cares about your
health. Our Portland duct cleaning experts goal is to make sure your home

5 Signs You Need Duct Cleaning
Visible dust in your ducts or on your air vents - If you have dusty air vents then you can feel free to open them up and
check your ducts with a flashlight.
Suffering indoor air quality - If you're noticing an uptick in dusty air or that your
indoor air quality has suffered in any way, call in our Portland duct cleaning experts to
at least inspect your ducts and offer you a free estimate.
A dusty AC - Similarly to dust on your air vents, if you have bits and debris around
your AC, particularly in the blower fan it could be because there has
been substantial dust accumulation in your ducts.
Smells that are off - When it comes to smells, it's always best to trust your instincts. There
can be dust, mold and mildew in your ducts and it's better safe than sorry
when it's the air you breath.
Rising utility bills - If you're seeing utility bills that are steadily climbing, it could be
because of the additional friction that's happening in your ducts so call
in our duct cleaning specialists. It could also be that you're suffering
from a leak and could
use sealing as well.

Do Your Dryer Vent Cleaning
98% of your dryer vent cannot be seen as it is in a confined area inside
your walls, floor joist, crawl space, and attic. Your lint trap confines
about 60% of the lint, the other 40% goes up and through your dryer vent
and dryer vent system. The accumulation of lint in the dryer vent or dryer
vent system is a real fire hazard. In fact, the NFPA (National Fire Protection
Agency) reports that 18,000 structure fires a year in the U.S. are caused
by clogged or blocked dryer vents.
Aside from fire prevention, a clean dryer vent also offers the following benefits:
Gets rid of allergens
Prevents carbon monoxide poisoning
Extends the life of your dryer
Improves the operation of the dryer
