What type of equipment do you use?
We use up to date truck-mounted power vac equipment only, creating 16,000 cubic feet per minute (cfm) working vacuum.
How do you clean the air duct work?
We use a 10-step process for effectively cleaning and removing dust and dirt from your duct work.
- Upon arrival we check to see that we have the best possible access to your duct system.
- If the duct work has never been cleaned, we will install a 10×10 access plate in the warm air side of your duct system. This is for our hose to fit into your duct work. If there is already an access plate we will use it.
- Next we lay out our hose that connects to our truck. If the furnace is in your house we will lay protective tarps down first.
- We will cover each vent in the house (warm and cold) to help create a sealed vacuum in the duct system.
- Then we bring our air hose into each vent starting with the furthest vent from the furnace.
- Next we start up our truck mounted vacuum which creates 15,000 cubic feet per minute (cfm) of vacuum in the duct system. Using our compressed air at 200psi we clean out each vent pushing the dirt into the vacuum. Internal duct cleaning devices are used as needed during this process.
- After we are finished cleaning the duct system we inspect the main trunk lines, (warm and cold) for any additional cleaning that may be needed.
- Once we are done we will put our air hose and suction hose away. Then we will pick up all of our covers over the vents, and replace any furniture we might have moved
- We now install the 10×10 access plate using metal tape to create an air tight seal, and then four screws to secure it to the duct system. We then recommend installing a new air filter (a Dust Magnet 90).
- Finally we put our sticker on your furnace, date the sticker for future reference and we are done.
What do you clean on a furnace?
- In a gas furnace we clean the burners, radiation tubes (heat exchanger), blowers, blower compartments, and flue pipe.
- In an oil furnace we clean the heat exchangers, firebox, blower, blower compartment, and flue pipe.
- In an electric furnace we clean the heating elements, blower, and blower compartment.
