"First, let me say that if you need any plumbing work or repair done,
should be the first phone call you should make. After having family" in town for a month or so and continued use of our upstairs guest bathroom, my wife and I noticed water stains on our downstairs ceiling. Over time the stain became more evident, along with cracking. After trying to troubleshoot the problem myself, with no luck, I figured it was time to call a professional. So based on reviews I decided to call Expert Touch and spoke with
. After working around my schedule to find a time that worked,
and
came to our home and tried several methods to identify the problem, communicating with me the whole time. Once, they found the problem (which turned out to be a hole behind the tub spout that wasn't caulked properly) they quickly fixed the issue and even replaced the previous spout and rings with better models. During the whole process, both
and
were great in explaining what they were doing and why they doing it. They also took time to help me understand how they were to fixing the problem. Both
and
were polite, professional, informative, and honestly a pleasure to have in our home. I will definitely call
for any future plumbing problems and would highly recommend them to anyone needing help with a plumbing issue. Also,
and
were right on time for our appointment, and contacted me well ahead of time to let me know they were on the way.

Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

If the ducts are venting through a window I'm assuming the duct work is all easily accessible.  Lowe's and Home Depot sell a cleaning kit that uses an electric drill to spin the brush as it goes through the ductwork.  I've found it to work quite well and you can do it yourself.  It may take a few passes the first time to get everything out if it has been a while since it was last cleaned.  Just make sure you get all of the loose lint out after running the brush through from both ends and you're good to go.  Please note that if the line is not hard but rather a flex duct line you can easily puncture a whole in it with this kit and will do better to clean it by hand.

There are varying opinions on the type of cleaning to have done on your air ducts.  My opinion is that it varies based on the type of duct work you have.  If you have solid material (typically metal) ducting you can have use a company that uses a brush to scrape the system clean.  If you have flexible plastic or foil ducts the solvent cleaners are generally a safer bet since the brushes often tear holes in the soft material and/or pull joints loose.  It really depends on what type on ducting you have.  You're ducts will collect all kinds of dirt, skin cells and allergens over time so if you see dicoloration around your vents it is probably time to get them checked and cleaned.

Also, don't stop at the duct work.  Don't forget your annual system check up by a licensed HVAC technician.  They'll make sure your system is running at peak performance, keeping it running efficiently and with as little impact as possible on your electric bill.  You can often save the cost of the annual tune up in the electricity cost saved.  If you have a natural gas system a bi-annual check and cleaning of the HVAC unit may be advisable to save electricity and gas.

if you have exhausted all of your choices I would call and put a complain in with the BBB then go to the DA and put a complain with them.  Then get a good lawyer and sue them for all you can get.

the answers in this on this page are all correct but you are using a bandaide to to cure the infection have a trust hvac tech open your system to see where the dust is coming from you more than likely have an impacted coil that need to acid wash to bring it back to oringinal anything left from the fire is still inbeded in that coil. just remember after that job to keep your filters clean change once a month in the summer and every two months in the winter.

They came promptly and cleaned our
Oakdale Dryer Duct Services Provider Name Locked
, which was clogged from
the second floor laundry room to the roof. There was a screen on the
roof vent that is up to code, but also collects lint, which gets wet,
causing the lint to collect from there all the way back to the dryer.
They charged extra to climb the ladder to the roof and removed the
screen. However, we will only need the vent cleaned out now about every 3
years instead of yearly. I would work with this company again.

I bought a $99 Angie's List deal for interior painting for one room. I was contacted by
Oakdale Dryer Duct Services Provider Name Locked
promptly and the job was scheduled for 1/21/15. On that day,
Oakdale Dryer Duct Services Provider Name Locked
called to let me know that he was on his way. Upon meeting him at my house, I showed him the room to be repainted, he took a careful look and got to work. Upon completing the job, he sent a couple of photos to me so I could evaluate the job. It was wonderful! When I returned home, I was able to take a closer look. He did a fantastic job. This room has a lot of ornate woodwork and not a drop of paint was spilled on any of it! He cleaned the area thoroughly as well. I asked him to provide a couple of estimates for some other areas of my house as well. They seemed quite reasonable.



I found

They cleaned our ducts three times. The last two times, they were supposed to replace a dryer vent cover on the outside of the house. They promised they'd come back and do that. But when I called them, they said it would cost $100 for the service call, but they'd only charge me $70 for the service call since I was a repeat customer. I said I'd meet them halfway do $50. I never got a call back. The follow-through was not good. The guy who showed up at the house was a good guy and did good work, and very responsive and professional, but I won't use them again.
