Cleaning ducts Give Some Peace of Mind | Lawrence, MA

On the other hand, John DeSilvia, a contractor and host of DIY Network's "Rescue My Renovation," premiering Feb. 27, doesn't generally recommend duct cleaning to homeowners.
It's normal for dirt to accumulate and stick to the sides of air ducts, he says. The exception, he says, is if there's visible mold growth. If you do have ductwork cleaned, he advises getting a few estimates and ensuring that the service you hire uses high-powered equipment to capture what they dislodge. Otherwise, the effort could backfire. "Any dust and dirt not collected will be distributed throughout your home, causing a bigger problem," DeSilvia says. DeSilvia says homeowners can do a lot on their own to improve their HVAC efficiency by cleaning dirty coils, fans and registers, ensuring drain pans are emptying properly, and changing air filters at least three times a year. He also recommends a yearly professional tuneup. "Think about your heating and cooling system like you do your car," he says.

"The maintenance on a dishwasher depends on how you treat it," says John DeSilvia, host of DIY Network's "Rescue My Renovation."
If you're not a pre-rinser, he recommends cleaning the filter once a month. Just look at the bottom of your dishwasher, find and remove your filter, then scrub away debris with a soft brush. Rinse and reinstall. "Don't be scared, it's really easy," says DeSilvia. DeSilvia says to always run cold water before, during and after using the disposal. "Never use hot water with your garbage disposal," he says. DeSilvia reminds homeowners never to put their hand in the disposal. "Most service calls can be avoided by simply resetting your disposal," DeSilvia says.
