What’s hiding your Waukesha air ducts?!
Throughout the years of living in your home, dust, debris, allergens
and other contaminants build up in your cold air returns when your furnace
cycles on. During this process it not only pulls in air, but it also sucks in dust, debris, pet dander, hair, construction debris and other airborne allergens. Your furnace filter stops most of it from getting into your supply vents but over time it gets through.
It is important to change your filter every 3-4 months to keep the debris out of your expensive furnace. Air duct cleaning is the process of removing all the debris out of both your return and supply vents so you and your family are breathing healthy air.
It’s time to get your air ducts cleaned if:
- It’s been 5-7 years since your last cleaning
- New home purchase
- Recent construction
- Allergies are bad
- Changing filters on a monthly basis
- Vent covers are constantly covered in dust
The biggest fire hazard in your home is your dryer vent!
Totally Clean removes a lot of built up lint in dryer vents around the City of Waukesha . Due to the age of homes and how the dryer vents are constructed, we often find that these vents are either neglected or improperly constructed. This causes large lint build ups. By not getting your dryer vent cleaned on a yearly basis you are increasing the risk of dryer fires and unnecessary wear and tear on your dryer. If it is taking a long time to dry your laundry, then your dryer is working extra hard. Therefore, your bills are going to be higher each month and you will be replacing your dryer sooner than you need to!
Look for these signs if you suspect you need a dryer vent cleaning:
- Damp clothes after full cycle.
- Clothes get very hot to touch.
- Dryer keeps turning off before the cycle finishes.
- Red warning light comes on indicating a blockage.
Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning: Condos, Apartments, Retail
Are you a property manager or property owner? Don’t forget you are liable if a dryer fire happens in your Waukesha commercial building. This is something that should not be neglected if you own a commercial building. It is the responsibility of the building owner to get residents dryer vents cleaned. Ask your insurance company if they will give you a discount for getting this hazard taken care of on a yearly basis. Totally Clean can set you up with a yearly contract to make this easier for you!

Peggy Worthenger from Waukesha, called Totally Clean because they were experiencing severe allergies and dust when the furnace kicked on in the winter. With Wisconsin being known for its cold and dry winters, the Worthenger family was suffering from severe allergies due to the high levels of contamination in their ductwork.
Their home was built in the 1930’s and the ducts were only cleaned once before they moved in 10 years ago. Since then, they have raised children and pets in this home located near N. Grand Ave & E. Park Ave. Pet’s and children tend to put objects where they don’t belong and in this case, a lot of toys, dog food and pet dander were present in the HVAC system.
Upon inspection, we found a very high level of pet hair, dust and pet food in their ducts. It had also appeared that the last company that cleaned the vents in this 2300 square foot home cut some corners as well. The ducting shouldn’t have been this dirty after 10 years and the relics we also found shound’t have been there after the last cleaning.
Since the home was built in the 1930’s the air ducts were covered in asbestos and we had to find parts of the ducting that didn’t have any asbestos so we didn’t disturb it. The other challenge was fishing out large chunks of plaster from the return vents and the difficulty working in a closet in which the furnace was located in.
What We Found Inside
We found a lot of interesting objects inside this bungalow home located near Canon Memorial park. The supply vents throughout the home had insects, mouse droppings, toys, dog food, lots of dust and pet hair.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Peggy also didn’t have her dryer vent cleaned in nearly 5 years so she also hired Totally Clean to clear the lint out of this pipe. The laundry unit was located in the basement and it terminated to the exterior of the home above the basement window.
Results & Recommendations
This air duct cleaning job took us 3 1/2 hours to complete from start to finish. Normally we would have cleaned these ducts a little quicker but this home presented some challenges. We took multiple before & after pictures of this duct cleaning job and the customer was thrilled. The supply and return vents were spotless after we were done and we removed a ton of dust and pet hair. Peggy even let us keep some of the cool relics we found inside the vent since we like to collect vintage era objects.
Once the job was complete, we packed up our duct cleaning equipment and changed out the furnace filter. Peggy had stated that she already noticed a difference in the smell of her home and the dust floating around the air. The air quality was significantly improved and the Worthenger’s allergies significantly improved.
We recommended that they have their air ducts cleaned every 5-7 years based on the level of dust that accumulated in their ducting. To also help their respiratory issues, we also recommended that they purchase a few air purifiers and have a bypass humidifier installed onto the furnace. The reason for the humidifier is to put some more moisture in the air so there allergies improve.
Benefits of Service
Peggy and her family were a perfect example of why you need to get your air ducts cleaned. They were experiencing unnecessary allergies and dust related issues because their ducting was so contaminated. By getting your HVAC system cleaning you are not only improving your families health, but are improving the efficiency of your furnace, which means you save money on utility bills! Who doesn’t want to save a dollars on energy bills these days!
