In Minnesota we love our wood burning fireplaces. Along with the enjoyment of a nice warm fire comes the responsibility of making sure it is safe to use. The primary cause for concern is a build-up of highly flammable creosote in your chimney caused by the burning of wood. This is the primary cause of chimney fires. Left uncared for, this could result in costly damage caused by a chimney fire. Midwest Home Services knows how important it is to clean and inspect your fireplace and chimney on a regular basis. We use traditional chimney sweeping methods to brush the chimney flue and remove the creosote build-up.
Air Duct Inspection and Cleaning
Just finished a remodel or perhaps you just haven't had them cleaned in a while? Our Air Duct inspection and Cleaning service can help alleviate the dust and build up in your duct system. At Midwest Home Services, we use a combination of high pressured air and a portable Air Viper Tool to thoroughly clean each vent in your home. Let Midwest Home Services help your family breathe easier and reduce the dust in your home.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Cleaning your dryer vents is a great way to help your clothes dry faster and reduce energy usage. A plugged dryer vent can result in longer clothes drying times and can be a hidden fire hazard. At Midwest Home Services, we help you conserve energy and keep your home safe. We clean your dryer vent using specially designed rods and brushes that allow us to thoroughly clean the entire length of your exhaust vent. By regularly cleaning your dryer vent, you can rest easy that your family is safe.
Air Conditioner Inspection and Cleaning
Having a dirty air conditioner can lead to restricted airflow thereby reducing cooling efficiency. This can also cause damage to your air conditioning unit and needlessly increase your cooling bill. Midwest Home Services can help you keep your air conditioner in optimal operating condition and improve your cooling efficiency, perfect for those hot Minnesota days and nights.
A dirty furnace is nobody's friend. At Midwest Home Services we help to ensure your furnace is clean and operating most efficiently during the cold Minnesota winters. We will clean your blower motor, pilot assembly, burner, heat exchanger and forced draft fan. We will even check your furnace filter to help maximize furnace airflow. Proper furnace cleaning can help to ensure proper operation and extend the life of your furnace.
Gutter Inspection and Cleaning
Let us help you to maintain your gutter system. By removing all leaves and debris, Midwest Home Services can help you prevent potential damage to your home as a result of water buildup.
Hot Water Heater Cleaning
When is the last time you had your hot water heater inspected and cleaned? Let Midwest Home Services help you maintain your hot water heater. We clean the heating element of rust and scale, helping to extend the life of your hot water heater and maximize its heating operation.
Do you have birds, bats in the belfry, nests, raccoons, squirrels or other animals living or deceased in your chimney or air ducts? Midwest Home Services can remove them for you and keep them outside where they belong.
In today's market abandoned homes are becoming increasingly common. More and more tenants are vacating their residences leaving behind garbage, debris junk and even discarded belongings leaving the house vacant and uninhabitable. Midwest Home Services can perform a thorough clean up of the property to include debris removal, repair, and even winterization of the property ensuring that it is ready for rental or sale on the real estate market.
Air Duct Video Inspection
Not sure if you need a duct cleaning? Let Midwest Home Services peek inside your HVAC system and help you determine your systems cleaning needs. We can provide you with an interior view of your air ducts so you can see for yourself how beneficial our duct cleaning services are.
Chimney Safety Inspection
Want to make sure that your chimney is working properly and is safe to use? Midwest Home Services can provide you with a visual safety inspection to include checking for creosote build up, the fire box, ash dump, smoke chamber, brick work and chimney crown. Afterwards we will provide you with a written evaluation of our findings.
Chimney Video Inspection
While a visual inspection can help identify obvious chimney issues, sometimes a more intensive look is needed to search those hard to get to places. Midwest Home Services has the capability of performing a live video inspection of the inside flue of your chimney with our chimscan chimney camera. This thorough inspection helps to detect any hidden issues with your chimney flue that may need to be addressed to assure safe use. Our compressive video inspection is the best way to evaluate the safety of your chimney. We even provide you with the recorded video tape for your records.
