Air Duct Cleaning Process
Air ducts harbor all kinds of contaminates that we never see but we breath every day. The air gets sucked in to the return of the system to the furnace and then is blown out to the rest of the home, coming out the registers into each room. The air ducts carry the air and anything else floating along. The air ducts have crevices where dust and debris can get trapped, creating another system that is not wanted. In these crevices dust mites live, bacteria can grow, allergens accumulate, and other contaminants develop that we do not want. The air is blown over this material, pushed into the home, and inhaled by the occupants.
We come in, clean the ducts, and eliminate this system from your home.
Our process is very thorough. Here are the steps:
We start out by removing all of the register and return covers that carry air in the house. We clean each one completely by removing any dust that has accumulated over time.
The dust on the outside of the register and returns is a big indicator of what is inside the air duct system. We clean with a product called a Rotobrush. The Rotobrush has a hose with a double hepa filter vacuum which is inserted in each duct. At the end of the hose is a brush that agitates the inside of each air duct with a rotating motion. The brush’s diameter is selected based on the size of each duct so that it can completely remove any debris that has accumulated in the crevices of the air duct. The brush scours the duct interior without harm to the system.
When we are finished with the Rotobrush we spray an antibacterial solution into the air ducts. The furnace sucks up the spray and distributes it out to the whole system of the home. The spray prevents growth of mold and contaminates that can develop. This is the same spray used in hospitals, nursing homes, and other sterile environments.
This is the process we use and will use in your home to clean your air ducts!
