A Guide to Attic Fan Installation and Vent Cleaning

Proper ventilation in your home helps control temperature, air quality, odors, and moisture. There are a few essential elements of a properly ventilated home. You need to ensure that your attic is being ventilated with a fully functional fan, and you should regularly have your home’s vents cleaned. Dust, dirt, and other contaminants will accumulate in your home’s vents. When they are not cleaned, that debris will become airborne, and your family will breathe it. Luckily, Mr. Handyman of The Woodlands has professional vent and duct cleaners in The Woodlands, Texas, and the surrounding areas. Learn more about our vent and duct cleaning services.

Do I Need a Fan in My Attic?

If your attic is hot and muggy, like a sauna, it can cause various problems. Excessive heat and moisture in your attic can create the ideal environment for mold and rot to develop. On top of that, it makes your attic an incredibly uncomfortable place to spend time. Mr. Handyman of The Woodlands can help you install an attic fan that blows warm air out of your attic. When hot air is circulated out of your attic, it can lower the temperature up to 50 degrees in your attic on a hot summer day. 

Why Do My Vents Need to Be Cleaned? 

The various vents in your home transport air from one place to another. Over time, dust and debris will build up in your vents just like any other place. Vents are very difficult to clean for the average person. So, the buildup tends to go unattended. The problem comes when the accumulated debris becomes airborne. Airborne contaminants can reduce air quality and aggravate allergy symptoms. Some smaller vents, like dryer vents, can become clogged with lint, making them a potential fire hazard. Keeping your home’s vents clean will create a safer and more comfortable environment for everyone.   

Cleaning the Most Important Vents in Your Home  

Your home might have more vents than you realize. From attic vents to vents for basement clothes dryers, they all need to be cleaned on a routine basis. Mr. Handyman of The Woodlands has handymen that can clean all the vents in your home quickly and effectively. Below, you will find some of the most common vents we clean. 

Roof Vents 

A roof vent allows your attic to breathe and helps prevent heat and moisture from getting trapped in your attic. Attics tend to be dusty and dirty spaces. So, attic vent cleaning is very important. When your attic vents are clogged, it will obstruct the flow of air out of your attic, minimizing the effectiveness of your roof vents. Similarly, the vents on your attic fans should be cleaned regularly to encourage proper airflow. Mr. Handyman of The Woodlands performs attic vent and fan cleaning services.  

Dryer Vents 

Dryer vents give a pathway for heat, moisture, and lint to be released from your clothes dryer. Your lint trap will not collect all the lint particles. Some amount of lint will find its way into your dryer vent. Eventually, these lint particles will accumulate, causing a clog. The high levels of heat that are expelled from your dryer make lint clogs a fire hazard. Mr. Handyman of The Woodlands can clean clothes dryer vents, whether they are sidewall vents or below-ground vents.
