We take your indoor air quality seriously at Air Duct Cleaning. Our experts use only the best equipment and best practices to clean your air ducts. In today’s blog from Air Duct Cleaning, we explain how our specialized machines work to remove all of the dust, dirt, and contaminants from your air ducts.
Our company is certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), which means we follow strict guidelines and standards set forth by the organization. One of those standards involves using vacuums specially designed for air duct cleaning. We use 195-horsepower motors, the highest rating in a 300-mile radius, that suck dust and debris out of your air ducts.
We attach a vacuum hose to either the supply side or return side, complete one side of the ductwork system, then switch to the other side of the ductwork to complete the job. The vacuum itself stays on our specialized truck that sits in your driveway.
Sealing Your Vents
Before our vacuums go to work, Air Duct Cleaning seals off all of your vents or registers. This allows the vacuum to work more effectively by creating negative pressure. This negative pressure is the key to removing all of the contaminants from your ductwork. We also look for any small holes or breaches in your air duct system, and we seal those.
Agitating the Dust and Debris
Once we activate the vacuum, our technicians will go to each individual vent and unseal one of them. We use specialized equipment called agitators to knock all dust and debris from individual vents using rotating brushes, compressed air tools, and vacuums with long attachments. We ensure the dust is dislodged in every vent, and that every bit gets sucked into our air duct cleaning vacuum.
We don’t just stop at cleaning your air ducts. Our teams clean the blower motor, evaporator coil, and drain pan to complete our work. We then make recommendations to you for keeping your air ducts as clean as possible moving forward.
