Improve the quality of your indoor air with air duct cleaning.
Most of us have seen dust collect in inaccessible places in our homes—under beds and behind refrigerators or stoves. Imagine the amount of dust and debris that has accumulated in your ventilation system over a period of five, 10, or 20 years. In addition to being unpleasant, the dirt found in heating and air conditioning ductwork is often composed of insects, dust mites, animal hair and dander, pollen, cigarette tar, fungi, and bacteria.
Let’s face it; none of this is healthy to breathe.
The duct cleaning process, explained.
- An access hole is cut into the supply plenum. A high-powered vacuum is connected to the plenum, creating high velocity suction inside the main supply duct.
- Each branch is then cleaned by feeding high-pressure cleaning devises, such as power brushes and duct whips, to dislodge caked on debris and push anything inside the duct down to the main supply trunk where it is pulled into the vacuum’s filtration collection system. The main trunk is then cleaned in the same manner.
- The whole process is repeated for the cold air return side of the duct system.
- At this point, the furnace motor and blower assembly are cleaned along with an inspection of the furnace safeties and operation.
- Upon completion of the cleaning process, the inside of the duct system is sanitized using a fog machine. This emits an EPA-registered sanitizer and disinfectant inside of the air duct to prevent bacteria and odors from reoccurring.
- The technician does a visual inspection with the scopes and mirrors to ensure the ducts have been completely cleaned. The access hole is sealed, returning your duct system to its original, clean condition.
- A clean-and-check is then done to the furnace, and, weather permitting, to the central air conditioning system.
