Residential Duct Cleaning Process

Residential Duct Cleaning Process


Step 1

Area Inspection and Preparation
  • Two of our certified technicians will arrive on the job site as scheduled in a decalled or a non–decalled truck.
  • They fill out an activity sheet – mapping out where all the vents are in the house.

Step 2

  • Our certified technicians will use Commercial Grade Equipment – as powerful as 20,000 household vacuums
  • House Hold Vacuum = “1.3” CFM
  • Unique Duct Cleaning Machine = “20,000” CFM

Step 3

  • To protect the floor, our technicians will layer drop sheets.

Step 4

  • Any petschildren, or toys should be kept away from the work areas, (if possible out of the house).
  • This is to maximize safety and minimize interruptions to the work process.

Step 5

  • All vents are covered with foam blocks(black or grey) or blue paper or closed before starting work to achieve negative air pressure and avoid blowbacks.

Step 6

  • Our technicians will begin our work from the furnace room.

Step 7

  • This is what your building’s duct system looks like BEFORE cleaning.

Step 8

  • Our 20,000 CFM vacuum is attached to the building’s main supply and return lines.

Step 9

  • Air pressure of 300 PSI  will be blown into all return vents, first, to push dirt and debris into main lines for cleaning.

Step 10

  •  Then the same Air pressure of 300 PSI  will be blown into all supply vents to push dirt and debris into main lines for cleaning.

Step 11

  • Main lines located in the basement are then cleaned with our retractable snake jet system (with air pressure of 300 PSI).
  • This tool will clean the hard to reach places, including the corners within the line and bring all the loose dirt towards the vacuum working as an air-rake.

Step 12

  • All main duct lines are cleaned with a Semi robotic brush which cleans the inner walls of the duct system.
  • This is repeated 2-5 times as necessary to loosen and agitate dirt and debris towards vacuum.

Step 13

  • Main lines are then again cleaned third time with our retractable snake jet system (with air pressure of 300 PSI).

Step 14

  • This is what your building’s duct system looks like AFTER cleaning.

Step 15

  • All one-inch access points are closed by installing black plugs Eight-inch access holes are covered using stainless sheet metal plate, sealed with aluminum tape.

Step 16

  • The work area is cleaned. The furnace and air conditioning unit is inspected to ensure everything is in order.

Step 17

  • We will give a Clean Air Certificate.

Step 18

  • We will give a report of our progress to the main occupant.
  • We appreciate your business and we will do whatever it takes to deliver the best service possible.
