Method of duct cleaning and tools been used:
Our cleaning method called “Push-Pull” with this method we use 200 pounds (psi) of air pressure to push or pull the dust and debris towards the vacuum hose located near the furnace at the main duct line. At the end of the air hose, there is a ball with 45-degree air blasting holes who will push or pull anything who is in the way. As well we use air whip system to agitate the dust in the duct from the inside. In some cases like fire damage or high build-up we use rotary brushes.
Cleaning process for truck mount power vac equipment:
Upon arrival the technician will check to the best possible way to access your air duct system.
If the duct work has never been cleaned, an 8” hole will be cut in the main duct line in order to access the supply airside of your system.
Next, the hose, connected to the truck, will be fitted into the hole. If the furnace is inside your home, we will first lay down protective tarps.
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 clean the main trunk/duct lines (supply and return).
Next, we will clean the furnace. This includes the blower motor, heat exchangers, plenum, access doors and air handling unit.
Upon completion, all hoses will be removed from the HVAC system. All covers will be placed back onto vents, and furniture will be moved back to its proper place.
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.
