The Air Duct Cleaning Process
Here are the main steps in the air duct cleaning process.
1. Loosening Contaminant in Air Ducts
This is first step in the air duct cleaning process. They type of duct work in you home or business will direct us to the proper tools for completing this step. We use brushes, air whips and compressed air.
2. Collecting & Removing Contaminants from Air Ducts
We use a negative air pressure system to collect and remove contaminants from your heating and cooling system. Think of it as a large, industrial power vacuum! The main benefits of this system is it keeps contaminants from entering the living or working areas of the building. Depending on your HVAC system we may or may not need to create service openings. If needed, we will advise you before hand and will always seal any service openings before completing our work.
3. Cleaning Other Components of Your HVAC System
Air duct cleaning is, in fact, more than just cleaning your ducts. It’s a whole HVAC system restoration process. After your ducts are spiffy clean we also clean and inspect your:
- blower motor
- cooling foils
- external surfaces of the heat exchanger
How Long Does Air Duct Cleaning Take?
