The Air Duct Cleaning Process Explained
Now that you understand why clean ducts are important, let’s walk through exactly how we’ll clean yours. Our process is thorough yet simple, taking just a few hours from start to finish.
The first step is an inspection of your entire duct system. Our technicians will carefully examine each register, grill and component to locate any trouble spots. This assessment helps determine the scope of cleaning needed.
Next comes containment, which is key to trapping all the dirt we pull out. We use heavy-duty plastic sheets and tape to seal off the supply and return vents, ensuring no debris escapes back into your home. This containment is critical for safety and cleaning effectiveness.
Once sealed, it’s time for the main cleaning event! We hook up specialized vacuums and tools to our trucks, then thread flexible hoses into your ducts. Rotating brushes gently loosen and break up particles clinging inside the metal ductwork. These vacuums are rated for over 200 suction to capture everything.
For especially dirty ducts, we may use a mild detergent solution as well. This cuts through grease, dust and residue left behind. The vacuums then rinse away any remaining solution to leave your ducts completely dry.
Our final step is a thorough inspection after cleaning. Any remaining debris is removed by hand. The containment is also taken down to show you a before and after. This allows you to see firsthand the incredible results!
From start to finish, expect the air duct cleaning process to take around 3-4 hours for an average home. We’re in and out as quickly and cleanly as possible to minimize disruption. Let me know if you have any other questions!
