We are often asked how the cleaning is performed. Below is a step by step guideline for our process.
*Our cleaning technician(s) will call ahead to let you know they are on the way.
*They will explain the process to you and perform a furnace operational test. If they see or hear any problems, you will be informed.
*Power to the furnace will be turned off during the cleaning process.
*Our technicians will remove and seal off air intakes so dust does not escape into your home (This is where the majority of the dust is located). If these intakes build up enough, a snowball effect will occur and affect the airflow. If the airflow is affected enough it can lead to poor efficiency and costly breakdowns.
*Upper and main level supply vents are covered to keep debris from coming out during the cleaning process.
*A 10-15 foot hose is attached to your ductwork and the system will be under vacuum suction.
*Attachments are created by cutting an 8" hole in the main ductwork (these access holes may exist already if a cleaning has previously been done).
*We will then need access to all the vents throughout the house (from top to bottom) so we can apply high pressure air to each vent to loosen and force all the debris down to the main ductwork.
*Once all the vent lines are cleaned we move on to the main ducts. These are cleaned with a reverse skip line. This pulls out the remaining dust and debris.
*We then clean the furnace, blower motor, fan blades, recoup coil (if applicable) and the filter compartment.
*All access holes will be professionally sealed with a metal plate, tin tape, and screws
*Turn your system back on to test and confirm proper operation.
*A light deordorizing mist is sprayed into the ducts which leaves a pleasent smell.
*All vents and wall returns will be carefully put back on.
*Clean or replace furnace filter.
*Perform customer walkthrough and conclude billing.
*We suggest having your furnace and ducts cleaned every 1-2 years.
