Most Pro-Cleaners Don’t Totally Clean a Heat Exchanger!

Possibly you’ve heard that even a professional heat exchanger cleaner won’t get your DHW heat exchanger fully cleaned. This is unfortunately true about the heat exchanger cleaning industry. However, this isn’t the case with Flushing Services!

That’s right, with us, you won’t be settling for a partially cleaned heat exchanger and pay to get it “mostly” clean. We will get your heat exchanger 99.9% clean; and, possibly even more clean than a brand new unit would be.

Do I have to Replace my DHW Heat Exchanger Every Few Years?

Without professional cleaning that is truly professional (gets the device totally clean, doesn’t damage it, and keeps it from rusting out after reinstallation) this can be the case. The cost can quickly add up, and you may be even thinking about buying more expensive heat exchangers for longer operation life.

Again, with Flushing Services we can restore your heat exchanger and keep it operating at peak performance. The result is you only need to contact us to clean your heat exchanger, and you can keep using it for years to come.

Only Two Options: Replace our Outsource

When it comes to heat exchangers, there are a many variables. Fluid types, metal composition, and operating temperature can all play a role in how device fouling occurs. It really takes a professional heat exchanger cleaner, equipped with an array of technology and techniques, to properly clean these devices.

Heat and cooling professionals probably are not experts at cleaning heat exchangers. Instead, they may resort to tricks and hacks, such as chemical solvents, to modestly clean a heat exchanger. As already stated, this can predispose to rust and device damage. Additionally, hasty flushing with a solvent cannot get the tiny spaces inside a heat exchanger totally clean.

Therefore you really only have two options for your dirty heat exchanger: replace the unit or get a professional to clean it.

Lastly, If you have a sophisticated fluid system attached to a heat exchanger, the debris left over from improper cleaning can easily dislodge and settle elsewhere in the system. If your fluid system is costly, the last thing you want is debris interfering with the operation of delicate equipment.
