Before we clean your air ducts, our trained and certified professionals will perform a video inspection of your entire air duct system. This allows us to see exactly how dirty the ducts are. We also use this video to show you how much of a difference our cleaning made with a before and after video comparison. In order to avoid contamination of your system, we do more than just vacuum your HVAC system. To loosen dirt and debris, we use specialized industry tools like brushes and skipper balls, then we hook up a powerful HEPA-filtered vacuum to the duct to remove all of the dust, dirt, and debris. We then sanitize your air ducts with a microbial spray to kill germs, bacteria, and dust mites. If you are unhappy with our work, we will re-clean your air duct system a second time at no cost.
