Air duct cleaning


According to the National Science Foundation, “Most people worry about the quality of the air they breathe outdoors, while giving little thought to the contaminants that may be circulating in their own homes.”

How much does air duct cleaning cost?

For instance, the cost of air duct cleaning will depend on the size of your system. Indeed, large and more complex systems take more time to clean and will therefore, cost more. In addition, furnace components will also need to be cleaned, and having multiple furnaces will cost more. According to www.fixr.com, the National average air duct cleaning cost is between $450-$1,600.

In all honesty, getting your HVAC system cleaned correctly should be viewed as an investment for the health of your home and family. As a result of breathing in polluted air that is trapped in your home, it may trigger health issues and possibly intensify already existing health issues such as asthma or allergies. Overall, how can you not make this investment?

To conclude with the cost of cleaning air ducts, please be aware of anyone claiming that they will do it for less than the typical cost. More importantly, take in consideration of the old saying, “If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is.” On the other hand, be just as careful hiring a company who’s price is too high, because it matters who’s cleaning, how their cleaning, and with what their cleaning with!


Poor indoor air quality can threaten YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH!

Air Duct Cleaning

In fact, it’s proven we spend 80-90% of our time inside of our home. According to the E.P.A, “Pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.” This increases allergies, asthma, and breathing problems, especially in children and the elderly. 

In summary, what’s roaming around in your air ducts…dust, pollen, animal dander, mouse droppings, dust mites, drywall dust, insulation, fungus, or bacteria? Each time the HVAC system is turned on, it forces you to breathe that air in. As a result of breathing, poor indoor air, you may experience:

  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.

  • Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.

  • Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.

Cleaning the RIGHT WAY!

Above all, Amber’s Air Duct Cleaning takes pride in cleaning your air ducts the right way. We clean the right way, as we use running gas-compressed air through each air duct with professional tools. Furthermore, we utilize a high-powered portable air duct cleaning system, pulling 5,000 cfm of negative air suction. More importantly, this powerful vacuum extracts everything inside your air ducts, allowing for healthier air flow and a healthier family.


Our Professional Air Duct Cleaning

Equipment & Process:

air duct cleaning

Step 1

  • First, all cold air returns and heat registers are sealed and closed off to keep any dust within the system. Sealing all the air ducts maximizes the strength of the air duct cleaning machine.

  • Second, the air duct cleaning machine is carefully taken to where the furnace is located.

  • Third, a 7 inch hole is cut into an accessible area on both the plenum and air distribution trunk line, but the second hole is cut after the air distribution side is cleaned and sealed professionally.

  • Fourth, the air duct cleaning machine is attached to the trunk line by using an 8″ hose. Once attached, the opposite side of the HVAC system is blocked off to maximize the negative air pressure.

  • Finally, the air duct cleaning machine is turned on and the strong vacuum fan will then begin to pull air and remove any lingering dirt, dust, and contaminants from the living space, down through the duct work.

Step 2

  • Once all ducts are sealed, a non-scratch scrubbing pad is used on each heat register, so that any hard dust or debris in and around the vent can be sucked into our air duct cleaning machine.

  • After agitating all of the heat registers, our gas powered air compressor (Ingersoll Rand 30 Gallon, 14 HP, 25.5 CFM, 175 psi) is turned on and we begin to run air lines to the farthest point of the home.

  • At last, we analyze how long the air duct runs are and how much rod is needed to to reach whichever side of the HVAC system we’re working on.

Step 3

  • For an example, we clean each individual vent, from top-to-bottom, using positive gas compressed air with our whip and forward skipper ball. We work on one side of the HVAC system at a time. 

  • First, we clean the air distribution part of the HVAC system. 

  • Afterwards, we switch over to the intake/cold air return side, repeating the same process as described above. 

  • Lastly, the furnace is attended to by cleaning its grilles, diffusers, heat exchangers, and the fan motor. They are air washed with gas-compressed air, while the air duct cleaning machine next to it, collects all the contaminants. The A/C coil is air washed with gas-compressed air, vacuumed thoroughly and/or brushed if needed.

  • In the end, the client has the option to sanitize the entire HVAC system. This process is called fogging, and the gray machine above is used. Benefect Decon 30 is used to sanitize the HVAC system. The main ingredient is an essential oil. In addition, this essential oil kills 99.99% bacteria in 30 seconds and has a light lemon fragrance.

  • According to the E.P.A, “Benefect’s botanical Active Ingredient is identified by the EPA as having no known adverse effects to human health or the environment. Benefect is classified under the EPA’s lowest toxicity rating allowed by law for all routes of exposure, which include: inhalation, ingestion, skin irritation, skin sensitization and eye irritation.”

  • One inch duct caps/plugs are used to seal the one inch holes cut to reach into the duct work.

  • 10/10 duct plates, made by Schneider Sheet Metal, are used to cover the 7 inch access holes. Created and professional aluminum foil duct tape seals the duct plate.
