Since 1975, Willard Power Vac has used a 10-step process to make sure we do the best possible job in cleaning air ducts in your home.
Air Duct Cleaning 10-Step Process
- Upon arrival we check to see that we have the best possible access to your air 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 inside your home, we will first lay down protective tarps.
- We will then cover each vent in the house (warm and cold) to help create a sealed vacuum in the air duct system.
- Then we connect our air hose into each vent starting with the furthest vent from the furnace.
- We then start up our truck-mounted vacuum which creates 15,000 cubic feet per minute (cfm) of vacuum in the duct system. Using 200psi compressed air, we clean out each vent pushing the dirt into the vacuum. Internal duct cleaning devices are used as needed during this process.
- Once we finish cleaning the air duct system, we inspect the main trunk lines (warm and cold) for any additional cleaning that may be needed.
- When 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 may have moved.
- We then 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. At this time, we also recommend installing a new electrostatic air filter (the Dust Magnet 90).
- Finally we put our sticker on your furnace, date the sticker for future reference and we are done.
