Common Air Duct Problems in Summer

Green Pro Cleaning Helps You Diagnosis Air Duct Problems That You Can Experience During Summer

As the summer starts to approach and the days get hotter and hotter, it can be challenging to think about the things that should be checked out on your air conditioning unit before the start of the season. Here are some of the most common things that can be wrong with your unit that you might not even know about.

Green Pro Cleaning has some calls each season where homeowners and business owners are complaining about their air conditioning not cooling correctly. One likely cause can be that you have a refrigerant leak. This leak is imperative to the function of your unit as it pulls the hot air inside and then sends it back to the outside while cooling off the air inside of your home.

Another problem that could cause your air conditioning unit to not function properly is a tear or hole in your ductwork. If you have an air conditioning unit that is forcing cold air out, but it is an insufficient amount of cooling air, you could be experiencing a leak from a tear or hole. There is also a possibility that there is a disconnected duct piece from the unit throughout the home.

Green Pro Cleaning also recommends that users look to the settings of their units. If your unit is turning on and off an excessive amount of times, there could be a problem with the settings, and if not, there could be another issue. One of the leading causes could be that an air filter is clogged. If the filter is clogged, it will restrict the amount of air that it will allow through the unit and therefore cause the unit to turn on and off.

If you find that you have a working unit but that it stops working periodically or you start to notice a burning smell, it could be your air conditioning unit. One problem that can be easily repaired and diagnosed is an electrical cause coming from your unit. If the unit is overheating or shuts down for no reason, there could be a problem with the units electrical end. 

Green Pro Cleaning is able to diagnosis this type of problem and can help you to make the proper repairs or to help you to decide if a new unit should be purchased and installed.

Places You Missed During Spring Cleaning

Summer is here, which means it is time for summer gatherings! Which means guests are coming over. It’s time to get the place cleaned up and ready for family and friends.  How was your spring cleaning this year? Is your home spotless? Well, just in case you’re falling a little behind on home upkeep, here is a small checklist to follow along with spots to clean in your home.

Sconces, chandeliers, and another lighting

An easy to misplace when cleaning up the place are the lights above. We get so focused on cleaning the ground, the counters, arranging the furniture, picking up the kid’s toys, that we forget about the lights. Grab a step stool and take a quick look at your lights. They may be covered in dust and need cleaning. This way, if guests take a look at your chandelier or your living room lamps, they don’t see a layer of dust covering the lightbulbs or the lampshade.

Kitchen cabinets

As we said above, people normally get carried away with a lot of the things in front of them. If your cabinets aren’t white, you may glance over them and not think much of them. Upon looking closer, you’ll see fingerprints, handprints, marks, and splashes on regularly opened cabinet doors. Also, behind the door itself, where it connects with its frame. Double take that portion and give it a good cleaning. No need for a guest to open a cabinet and by chance grab one that is stuck to its frame from some mystery grime.  


In the same area, we have our backsplash in the kitchen. The wall behind your stove and countertops. Most of the time, this area is also under your cabinets. The backsplash is the place where all the foods you cook on your stove top end up. All the splashes of bits and grease. We get focused on cleaning counters and forget to do a double take on this place. Believe us; it’s dirty. Take a looksie and get to cleaning. Chances are, you may have missed this whole area.

Small appliances

Sometimes when we get small appliances, there isn’t room in our kitchen cabinets to store them. So what happens? They end up on the counter as our new fancy kitchen decoration! The problem is, these items are often missed when it comes to cleaning. Just because we haven’t used our awesome KitchenAid mixer recently, doesn’t mean we should pass it up when it comes to cleaning. You may have a layer of dust or leftover food bits hanging out around your toaster oven, mixer, electric can opener, etc.

We hope this list was able to serve you as a handy checklist and a reminder about some of the most commonly missed places when it comes to cleaning up your kitchen. Let us know if anything on this list is something you forget a lot or let us know if there is anything we have missed ourselves. Remember, you could also improve the quality of your in-home air by contacting us about our air duct cleaning services here at GreenPro. Contact us today.

Dangers of Duct Condensation

Green Pro Cleaning is a company that can assist residents of Suffolk and Nassau County who are in need of real cleaning and restoration services. 

When it comes to addressing the issue of mold and water damage, it is best to seek a professional who knows what the condition of your home is currently in. If you come across duct condensation, be cautious. It may be mold. A visual survey of water damage outside the home or indoor evaluations is a big key. GreenPro can assist with an inspection. 

If you do surmise that water damage has occurred, here are some precautions to take:

  • Do not touch wet or damaged things with your bare hand.
  • Do not breathe in damp or odorous air.
  • Contract a certified water damage repair specialist if a problem is suspected.
  • Make note of where in the home there may be damaged.
By keeping these four things in mind while considering a cleaning and restoration company, it can help bring important awareness to the current situation that requires attention. 

There are many other things to consider about water damage like key ways to identify and note them for the restoration professional. Below is an important list of things to be aware of when it comes to issues of water damage in the home:

  • Health effects and symptoms associated with water damage exposures include asthmatic issues, allergic reactions, and other respiratory difficulties.
  • Problems of water damage in the home, office, or other building could result in clean up to rid areas of moisture and severely damaged areas.
  • Eliminating all odors is a futile notion unless indoor moisture is completely controlled.
  • The main source of water problems and leaks must be prevented to lessen water damage.
The best practice when going over these lists on how to lessen or control any more harmful things from occurring is to be prepared and understand your current situation.

 Reaching out to a company like Green Pro Cleaning is a wise first step in a complicated process of damage remediation and visual surveys to pinpoint any fungal growth in the home.
