How do we clean?


When we come out to clean your air ducts in your home we use a round duct brush with polypropylene bristles that provide a gentle action that dislodges dirt and debris build-up in the interior surfaces of the duct work, allowing easy removal with our suction. We use direct high powered suction vaccum so no dust or debris is expelled into your home. Instead it is collected into our in-line filter which funnels the dirt and debris into our contamination tank.
