Air Duct Cleaning Process
- STEP 1 – CLEANING THE AIR HANDLER: The air handler or furnace is the heart of the air system. It’s the unit that is responsible for blowing the air throughout your home.
- STEP 2 – CLEAN VENT REGISTERS: Dirty vent registers are the grills that attach to your air duct openings. They should also be cleaned and decontaminated since this is the last thing the air touches before it enters your living space. This is a simple part of the process as it involves removing them and cleaning them.
- STEP 3 – CLEAN AND DECONTAMINATE AIR DUCTS: During this step, the inside of your air ducts will actually be cleaned and decontaminated.
- STEP 4 – APPLYING DEODORIZER AND SOOT SEALER: The last step in the air duct cleaning process is to apply 1 or more cleaning solutions into your air duct system in order to deodorize it and lock down any fine particulates that may be trapped in the nooks and crannies of your air ducts.
