Air Duct Cleaning

Do You have an "Indoor Air Pollution" Problem?

DON'T OVERLOOK your indoor environment!

If you answer "YES" to 2 or more of the following you may suffer from "Indoor Air Pollution":

  • Do you have an air circulating system that utilizes a standard fiberglass filter?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Are there smokers in the house?
  • Does anyone in the home suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems?
  • Do you experience headaches or burning sensations in the nose, throat or eyes when inside the home?
  • Do you have "dust trails" or discoloring coming out of your air duct registers?

 Dirt, dust, mold, pollen and animal dander are re-circulated through our air ducts every time we turn our heat or air conditioner on. Combine this with moisture and you have the ideal breeding ground for fungi, germs, and household mold. Studies have confirmed that some diseases, including salmonella, strep and legionnaires disease spread by contaminated air ducts. Considering that we spend so much time indoors (between 15 and 21 hours each day), it makes perfect sense to clean the sources of our indoor air quality problems…Our Air Ducts.

The Cleaning Process

Before dirty air duct and after clean air duct

A company with the right equipment and training will remove the molds, bacteria, fungus, original construction debris, and dust from your air ducts and furnace, to be sure the air you breathe is the cleanest possible.

BONUS: by removing the dust and debris, your heating system will operate at peak efficiency! 

Step 1

 A trained technician will inspect the HVAC system to determine performance and degree of contamination. (Before we get started we will protect your floors and furnishings from any escaped debris) 

Step 2

The technician connects a powerful vacuum to the main trunk line, then seals off the outlets in each room to create a vacuum within the air duct system. Then uncovering one register at a time, he cleans just that air duct. 

Step 3

Next in the air duct cleaning process, he inserts specially designed air tools into the air duct to loosen dirt and lift debris into the vacuum stream for removal of the contaminants that are clinging to the walls of the air duct. The air duct is cleaned from the register, through the entire duct--all the way back to the furnace. Contaminants are removed. 

Step 4

An access door is installed in the plenum (the separate space provided for air circulation for your HVAC, between the structural ceiling and a drop-down ceiling, or under a raised floor)  to access the return side of the air duct system. Now the technician can clean the cold air and return and plenum. This is where we find the majority of contamination. (NOTE: This step requires very powerful vacuum system that most air duct company’s DO NOT HAVE) 

Step 5

Attention to the furnace--Vacuum out the inside of the furnace chambers, remove dust and debris from blower and blades and inspect.  


Please allow 3 to 4 hours for us to clean your air duct system. Time will vary depending on the number of registers & degree of contamination.
