Inspection – A qualified technician will first assess the ductwork by visual examination and through airflow measurements to identify problem areas.
Containment – The ducts will be sealed off with plastic sheeting to prevent debris dispersal. Negative air pressure is used to keep particles contained.
Vacuuming – Powerful HEPA-filtered vacuums remove loose dirt and debris from the ducts, vents, registers, and other components.
Brushing – Rotating brushes scrub the duct surfaces to dislodge clinging particulates. Some companies may also use compressed air tools.
Disinfecting – EPA-approved disinfectants or sanitizers may be applied if mold, bacteria, or other contaminants are present.
Debris removal – All loosened debris is captured and contained for proper disposal, preventing it from spreading into the home.
Vent inspection – Vents, registers, grilles, and fan components are cleaned of any remaining particulates.
Air purification – High-tech air scrubbers filter out lingering airborne particles after the cleaning.
Final check – Post-cleaning inspection to ensure ducts are contaminant-free before reassembling the system.
