What is Duct Cleaning and How Does it Work?

Duct cleaning is the process of cleaning various heating and cooling system components of the air system of your home, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

Here’s the process that professional duct cleaning companies take:

The Process Professional Duct Cleaners Undergo

Professional duct cleaning service providers like Entire Duct Cleaning follow these steps to perform an effective cleaning of your ductwork:

1. Inspection of the Ducts

Our contractors conduct a simple, visual inspection of the ducts leading to the return and supply registers. This is necessary because this helps assess the level of buildup in the ducts and confirms the difference after the cleaning has been done. The inspection is also an opportunity for the technician to check kinks, leaks, and other issues.

2. Creation of Negative Pressure

Large, truck-mounted vacuum collection devices are used during the process to suck debris out of the ductwork.

3. Agitating the Dust

Once the system has been subjected to negative pressure, the technician uncovers the registers and cleans the ducts one by one using compressed air tools, rotating brushes, and vacuum cleaners and other equipment.

4. Cleaning the Rest of the System

Other components of the HVAC system are also cleaned and sometimes the filter is replaced. This greatly improves the air quality in the home and extends the life and efficiency of the system.
