Air Duct Cleaning

 

What's lurking in your HVAC system?

Duct cleaning may be an excellent idea if you have:

 

Lightbulb

  1. Moved into a new home
  2. Owned your home for 5-7 years
  3. Replaced/will replace your furnace
  4. Added/remodeled your home
  5. Added/remodeled ductwork in your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system
  6. Noticed poor performance with your ducted heating/cooling system
  7. Observed visible dust on registers, return air covers or in ductwork

Before and After Duct Work

 

Our Duct Cleaning Process

 

The process we use is one of the most effective cleaning processes in the industry. We use negative air pressure (vacuums) to suck dust, dirt and other debris out of the heating/cooling system. We also agitate the ductwork with various air-operated tools and brushes to banish dust from hard to reach places and remove caked-on debris.

 

3-4 hours is typically the average time frame for a residential cleaning, depending on the size and the layout of the home.

 

We attach our vacuum hoses to the duct work next to the furnace (usually in the basement of residential homes) and then we use different hoses, brushes and air attachments to thoroughly clean the duct work, vents and other components. We clean both the supply and cold air return sides of your HVAC system.

 

We can use a video camera monitoring system to inspect your ductwork before the cleaning, during the cleaning and/or after the cleaning. Check out our Robotic Cleaning & Inspection page for more information,

 

We can also fog a solution into the ductwork to kill bacteria, mold spores, pollen spores and other contaminants. This process is called Sanitizing. Sanitizing is highly recommended if anyone in your home or business suffers from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems. There is an additional charge for this process.

CVI - Certified Ventilation Inspector

 

Why air duct cleaning by a certified ventilation inspector?

 

Air ducts function as the respiratory systems of homes and businesses. Up to 70 percent of indoor air can be re-circulated. Consequently, dirt, dust, mold, pollen and animal dander are exchanged within our air ducts, every time we use our heat or air conditioner.

 

Homes and workplaces can be airtight and energy-efficient. This also means they trap pollutants and contaminants; lowering air quality.

 

Contamination builds up over time in every air system. This build-up will reduce the efficiency of air duct systems, shorten system operating life, and continue to circulate the contaminants throughout the home or business.

 

Industry experts estimate many air duct systems are running at 75% efficiency or less.

 

Two cost effective methods to improving the efficiency and performance of any air duct system includes:

 

1. Cleaning the HVAC system.

 

(and/or)

 

2. Testing the HVAC system for optimal performance and efficiency.
