Rice HVAC's Air Duct Cleaning Process

In the realm of air duct cleaning services, there are various methods to clean ducts, with the two most popular being the brush/vacuum method and the negative air method. Both techniques can be just as effective as the other to remove dust from air duct systems.


Each process involves the removal of dust and debris from HVAC duct systems, reducing the spread of airborne allergens and contaminants that can harm respiratory health. Based on research, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air pollutants are two to five times higher than outdoor pollutants, contributing to significant health problems like allergies, asthma, and respiratory complications.

Rice HVAC has used both proven methods to perform our air duct cleaning service and we have found through our experience that the brush/vacuum method works best for us & our clients. We found that our equipment is more portable & more efficient compared to negative air machines while getting the same if not better results during the cleaning process.

Our advanced air duct cleaning equipment is carefully designed to provide you with the cleanest air ducts possible. We start by inserting 35ft hoses (ranging in diameter) with a rotating brush, that swiftly revolves at 450 rpm, inside the air duct. The brush's rotation, works to meticulously loosen any stuck debris and removing the debris with a  dual HEPA filtered vacuum system rated to remove 99.97% of the containments in your homes air. Best of all, our rotating cable remains protected inside your duct system, ensuring that it is safe for all types of duct applications, including flexible duct. With our cutting-edge air duct cleaning equipment, you can breathe easy knowing that you are enjoying high-quality air flow.

Air Duct Sanitation

Air duct sanitizing is an additional service offered by Rice HVAC's air duct technicians while cleaning your home. This process ensures the removal of debris such as dirt and drywall dust, while also disinfecting and deodorizing the ductwork. The sanitizing process also kills any potential mold or mildew lurking in your ductwork. 


If you're moving into a new home, sanitization can be a precautionary measure against any unknowns left behind by the previous homeowner. During the winter months, sanitizing can minimize the germs your HVAC system is circulating, especially if someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma. Removing any triggers in your ducts can promote a healthier environment for all occupants and those with weakened immune systems. 


Though there are no strict guidelines for air duct sanitization frequency, homeowners who suffer from allergies or asthma can benefit from having it done every few years. A flood in your home can also warrant the need for sanitizing your air ducts. Prioritizing air duct sanitization is a great way to ensure a healthy home. Don't let the unseen threaten your household's well-being, secure an appointment today for Rice HVAC air duct sanitizing service!

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Maintaining your dryer's optimal performance requires more than just cleaning its lint trap. To ensure that your dryer's vent is working correctly, it's recommended to get it cleaned once a year. This is especially necessary considering that approximately 15,000 fires and millions of dollars of property damage occur every year due to clogged dryer vents.


Rice HVAC's Dryer Vent Cleaning  services deliver an extensive cleaning process that guarantees lint build-up and clogged vents are effectively removed. With hundreds of dryer vents cleaned in the past, we know exactly how to handle even the most severe cases. Our cleaning machines work using powerful suction, filters, and spinning brushes, providing deep lint removal that ensures your dryer's performance is optimized.


Our professional technician will carry out a comprehensive inspection of your dryer's vent and exhaust system. This will involve turning on the dryer to assess the system, measuring airflow, and identifying any leaks or possible fire hazards. Our technician will then clean both the inner and outer elements of your dryer system, from the coils in the lid to the heating element, while also ensuring that everything has been installed correctly.


The cleaning process involves using dryer vent auger & compressed air to clean out the lint and debris. Our technician will get into the dryer vent using spinning brushes to ensure that all lint and build-up are effectively extracted. We have brushes of various sizes to fit into your vents, along with an electric air compressor to loosen everything up and brush it all into the vacuum.


At this point, our technician will also inspect your dryer for any damage or signs of possible fire hazards, and notify you of any such incidents. Finally, our technician will re-install everything appropriately, ensuring that the dryer system is functioning correctly and there are no leaks.


So, whether you've never cleaned your dryer vent before, or if it's been a while since you last did, be sure to contact our Dryer Vent Cleaning service in the Chicago suburbs of Illinois, today to guarantee that your dryer continues to function optimally while reducing the risk of potential fire hazards.
