“Very pleasant experience. Shane was very nice. After I showed him what I needed, he gave me an estimated cost and after I approved the estimate, got to work. About two hours later, he was done. I was very pleased. If I hadn't known someone had been there, I would never guessed. Very neat and tidy. Highly recommended.”

“I was very happy with our service technician, Tommy. He sent us an e-mail & text (w/ his photo) before he arrived. He took off his shoes and wore disposable booties on his feet and was polite & respectful. He explained what we needed, in plain English, and patiently answered our many questions. He e-mailed me an estimate within 10 minutes of leaving our condo. He even paid some attention to our Cat ! My sister & I were very impressed.”

“Jessie was the greatest! Very professional and a very caring person and he was early. Tackled a difficult job with patience and efficiency. Worked with me for the most efficient and inexpensive way to complete the job of removing a rusty hose from a laundry faucet. Washer/dryer combo was delivered over an hour late and Best Buy would not install because of the rusty hose. I was very upset. Called one plumbing company, but could only make an appoint for 2 days later. Called Cardinal Plumbing and they were able to accommodate me with and appointment the same day! Very courteous and professional and very happy with customer service and especially with one of their most valued employee: Jessie. I've read the other reviews and it appears all of their technicians are very professional, caring and efficient. Jessie turned an upsetting day into a happy day. I was able to start my laundry as soon as Jessie left. Thank you again for making my day!”

“I admit I had a little sticker shock when I was quoted $466 to snake a clogged kitchen drain. I did receive a $30 discount as a first time customer. That said, I was very happy with the service. They came the next day at the promised time and took the time and effort to do the job right and explain what they were doing and how to avoid future issues. They left me some solution to to pour down my drain. The plumber was professional and very courteous. I gave four stars instead of five only because I thought they were a little pricey. Nonetheless I'd use them again.”

“Excellent service! I felt very well informed about all my options. The company calls, texts and emails when a service provider is on the way. I’ll absolutely recommend them and use them in the future.”

“Jessie Kidd showed up on time and was extremely professional. He fixed the issue we called about and found another problem that would have caused a huge flood in the near future. I was impressed that he took the time to inspect our plumbing system. Customer for life!!”

“Barry did an excellent job. He came out, assessed the problem and gave me an honest quote. Barry was very patient, knowledgeable, and great to work with. I will definitely contact Cardinal in the future for any HVAC or Plumbing needs I may have.”

“I thought Zack was great. He took care to protect our flooring by wearing shoe protectors. A quarter was stuck in our Garbage Disposal and he really worked at getting it out which wasn’t easy. I really appreciate his efforts so I didn’t have to buy a new Disposal.”

Common Problems with Air Ducts

Air ducts are susceptible to a wide range of issues that can in turn have a direct impact on your HVAC system, home, and health. If left unchecked, these problems may lead to damage to important and expensive components.

When in doubt – leave it out! Even with the best of intentions, drains can become clogged. When that happens, call Cardinal Plumbing, Heating & Air for quick, expert service. Our work comes with a no-questions-asked complete money-back guarantee. With that kind of guarantee, you cannot be surprised by our over 5,000 5-star ratings online. Do not just take our word for it – our customers say it all. When you need drain cleaning or unclogging service, make Cardinal Plumbing, Heating & air your first call!
  • Contamination: Dust, pollen, mold, and other fine particles that collect in ductwork can contaminate the air in your home, causing anything from sneezing and coughing to airborne diseases. Unwanted particles can collect indoors in concentrations much higher than outside, which can be very dangerous.
  • Blockage: Excessive accumulation of material can eventually block ducts, impeding airflow through the system. Insect colonies, rodent infestations, and bird nests can completely block a duct, disrupting your HVAC system and potentially exposing your family to harmful pathogens.
  • Leakage: A loss of air from ducts forces your air conditioning system to work harder. This can cause components to overheat, wear out faster, and fail, causing the A/C to break down unexpectedly. At the very least, an air leak will prevent the system from maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home.
  • Poor Sealing: The grills and registers are important for airflow, but if they’re not well-sealed, dust, debris, and insects can get inside with little to stop them. A significant amount of conditioned air can escape through poorly sealed areas as well, so it’s important for a professional to address any sealing issues before they become costly.
  • Design Flaws: Some duct designs are more prone to getting obstructed. If your system has an unusual number of kinks and twists, air flow can be blocked or restricted to the point it negatively impacts the efficiency of your air conditioning system. A bad design can make it impossible to get comfortable no matter what you set your A/C to.

Duct & Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vent cleaning is an important part of maintaining proper ventilation. By having a professional clean your dryer vents, you can reduce humidity and dust in the air. Dust and lint build-up can be a fire hazard, but clean vents can prevent a dangerous fire. They can also increase efficiency, so the dryer uses less energy, potentially saving on utility bills.

Kitchen exhaust systems help restaurants and commercial kitchens maintain and adhere to strict cleaning standards. Following the proper cleaning procedures reduces the risk of fire and allows smoke and odors to ventilate. It can improve efficiency as well, resulting in energy savings. Exhaust cleaning professionals can also ensure you’re compliant with local/national fire and health codes.

Benefits of Cleaning Air Ducts

Clean air ducts have many benefits in homes, restaurants, offices, and any indoor air-conditioned space, including:

  • Fewer impacts from dirt, pollen, mold, debris, and fine particles in the air.
  • Elimination of viruses and bacteria that can potentially contaminate buildings.
  • Improvement in allergy/asthma symptoms and reduced sick days at work.
  • Increased efficiency of HVAC equipment and a longer operating life.
  • Avoidance of inconvenient, costly breakdowns of A/C systems.

Professional cleaning services employ advanced equipment and techniques that effectively remove contaminants, sanitize your ducts, and deodorize indoor air. Technicians can safely inspect for clogs, damage, and design issues and use professional-grade vacuum systems to clear out any debris.
