Vent Guys is proud to announce that we offer chimney cleaning and repair for the Twin Cities area! When was the last time you had your chimney inspected or cleaned? It is recommended homeowners have their chimneys cleaned once a year by a certified chimney cleaning company. Keeping chimneys clean is important for safety reasons, especially in times of heavy use like the winter. While you’re enjoying the warmth of your fireplace, the chimney is expelling smoke, toxic fumes, and other organic matter to keep your family safe. When your chimney lacks regular maintenance, many potentially dangerous substances continue to accumulate in the flue that can interfere with its ventilation. That’s why it’s so important to have any issues with your chimney addressed as soon as possible. Here’s how Vent Guys can help:
We’re certified. Our technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and can get your chimneys back in clean, safe and efficient working condition. They have been trained and tested on the best practices for preventing and correcting chimney and venting system hazards. They are committed to eliminating residential chimney fires, carbon monoxide intrusion and other chimney-related hazards. We offer all levels of chimney inspections.
Inspection. Along with chimney cleaning, we include a Level 1 inspection, which will check the soundness of the structure and flue, basic connections and damper functionality. In addition, the technician will ensure the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits. Level 2 camera and Level 3 inspections are more detailed and will be done when needed or as requested.
Chimney repair. We offer a variety of chimney repair services, including:
Chimney lining or relining
Masonry and brick work
Replacing chimney caps, flues and dampers
If there are safety issues with your chimney, our CSIA certified and experienced technicians can also provide chimney repair.
Have you noticed smoke backing up into the home, chimney leaks or more? A chimney leak often is the first sign of damage somewhere within the system that could lead to serious deterioration of the chimney masonry or some of its components.
Annual cleaning and inspection is the best way to keep your chimney safe and efficient. Has it been more than a year since your last chimney inspection? Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps can diagnose any issues and recommend ways to solve the problem.

Right now we are all spending more time than ever in our homes. So now is an important time to consider the cleanliness of our living environment, making it as clean as possible for the health and well-being of our family. Don’t overlook one of the most essential areas of the home: the air. Just like the floors, carpeting and surfaces, air ducts must be cleaned as well. Home air ducts should be cleaned every couple of years to ensure that you are breathing in only the highest quality air. And, the best way to ensure proper, thorough cleaning is to hire duct cleaning professionals. Here at Vent Guys, we are the trusted name in duct cleaning for Minneapolis and are here to tell you more about how this essential service can help make your home cleaner throughout.
Buildings, including most homes, have air ducts that function as pathways for cool and warm air to flow. These ducts pull in air from rooms through a regulator and filter, cool or heat it and then transfer it right back to your living or working space at the desired temperature. These pathways pull in dust and other allergens along with air, and this dust settles within them. When air is then blown out, this build up of dust can then be pushed back out into the living environment. By having duct cleaning performed you can remove these allergens and provide a cleaner pathway for the circulation of air.
In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes with air ducts, there are several other factors that can increase the need for duct cleaning, including:
Occupants with allergies or asthma
Home renovation or remodeling projects
Damage to the home or HVAC system
Whatever the case, duct cleaning can offer a clean slate for your home’s air ducts and provide cleaner air throughout. Indoor air quality is the main concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate duct cleaning. Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly, tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.
Don’t overlook one of the most important parts of maintaining a clean living environment: duct cleaning! Are you interested in setting up air duct cleaning for your Minneapolis area home? Call Vent Guys at 612-492-1342 or contact us.
Your vents and air ducts move air from outside the house and circulate it throughout the house. If your air ducts are dirty this means the air circulating within your home will be dirty also. And in winter, we spend more and more time indoors breathing in this air. Vent cleaning, however, helps minimize dirt and is especially important in the winter months, when the house is shut up tightly against the cold winter air. As the experts in vent cleaning for Edina, we would like to tell you more about this essential service and why now is a great time to have it scheduled.
By having our professional vent cleaning company perform vent cleaning you can drastically improve the indoor air quality of your home. Regular air vent cleaning can remove airborne contaminates such as pet dander. This can be especially important for people with health conditions such as asthma or allergies. Cleaner vent can mean there are less allergens floating around in the air. It also means that your house will be cleaner in general and less dust will accumulate on your furniture.
And, when it comes to your dryer vents, most people do not realize that the threat of a dryer fire increases as the temperature outside decreases. During the winter months, bulkier clothing and bedding can produce more lint, clogging up the vent and trap. We have come across dryer vents that are so blocked by lint and debris that we worry about the household’s safety. If left long enough without cleaning, a dryer vent can become a fire hazard. To defend your home against the threat of a dryer fire, it is essential to have your dryer vent cleaned on a regular basis. Schedule your dryer vent cleaning right away to help prepare it and your home for winter.
And, if you decide to hire professionals, make sure they are certified, licensed and insured like those at Vent Guys. A dryer vent cleaning company like Vent Guys has the expert tools and experience necessary to get your system cleaned right the first time. Having been trained in a variety of dryer vent models, we know the best and most efficient way to go about cleaning the interior components of the system.

The summer is coming to a close and for many of us that means more time spent indoors. And, if you’ve welcomed a new pet into the family this summer, you may be wondering how you’re going to keep your home’s air clean this fall and winter. After all, the shedding and constant vacuuming can become a daily nuisance, especially for those with pet-related allergies. Did you know the pet dander circulating throughout your home may be causing bigger problems and even affecting your family’s health? As the trusted professional in duct cleaning for Plymouth and surrounding areas, we are here to tell you more about how you can combat pet dander before the cold weather hits.
Pet dander is made up of tiny, microscopic flecks of skin shed by cats, dogs, rodents, birds and other animals with fur or feathers. Because of their small size and jagged shape, these allergens easily stick to furniture, bedding, fabrics and more. For those with allergies or asthma triggered by pet allergens, breathing in pet dander can make respiratory symptoms worse.
The air within a home typically circulates through the HVAC system and air ducts 5 to 7 times a day, dragging with it those pet allergens. During this circulation process, it is common for allergens and other airborne contaminants to settle in the air ducts. While eliminating pet dander from your home entirely can be a nearly impossible task, having duct cleaning performed can significantly limit the occurrence of dander accumulation and redistribution back into the air you breathe.
Don’t put off this essential cleaning task any longer; the end of summer is a great time to schedule duct cleaning. When you turn on your heating for the winter, these types of allergens can be pushed out and into the home. So, before you turn on your heating system for the first time, we can clean your ducts and retrieve any dander and dust left there from last season.
When you call Vent Guys we can customize an air duct cleaning schedule to meet your specific wants and needs and get to work cleaning as quickly and as thoroughly as possible to ensure dander is eliminated.
Don’t forget one of the most important parts of ensuring a happy and healthy home; duct cleaning! Are you interested in setting up duct cleaning for your Plymouth area home? Call Vent Guys at 612-492-1342 or contact us.
