Steps To A Professional Air Duct Cleaning
Step 1: Start With The Right Equipment
Cleaning a complex air duct system isn’t a job for a carpet cleaning machine with a hose attached or a tiny vacuum box that exhausts inside your home.
Our “Monster-Vac” trucks create the negative air flow needed to remove even the worst contaminants and pull them outside where they belong.
Step 2: Protecting Your Home
A complete and in-depth cleaning requires us to go into every room that contains an air duct or cold-air return.
At Fresh Air, the work won’t begin until the floors, doorways and outside wall corners are protected.
Slip-on shoe covers, safety mats and plastic corner guards create a barrier between our equipment and your home.
Step 4: Maximize The Vacuum
Once the 8″ hose is connected to the system the huge vacuum fan on the truck begins pulling air from the living spaces down through the duct work.
By covering the registers a negative pressure is created within the system so dirt and dust can’t puff back into the living spaces.
Step 5: Scrubbing The System
Pulling large volumes of air toward the truck, we now feed our soft rubber, high pressure scrubbing tools down each of the supply lines.
This removes every trace of dirt, dust, pollen, chemical residue and pet dander that has collected over the years.
Step 6: Cold Air Return System
After all of the duct work on the supply side is completed, we move to the cold-air return system runs.
The main return grill is removed and cleaned followed by the covers and lines throughout the structure.
