Complete Residential HVAC System and Air Duct Cleaning Procedure: 


Step 1. Pre-Inspection and Evaluation of the Entire Home's HVAC Air Duct System by Healthy Air Solution Certified Technician (That includes visual inspection and analysis of supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans, fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing). You will be provided with a complete checklist of services and cleaning project.


Step 2. Installation of access panel(s) (or utilization of the existing) in the main ductwork is followed by attachment of a powerful dust collector which will create a negative air pressure in the system (machine uses HEPA filter, which prevents even the minutest particles from reentering your home).

 

Step 3. Removal of the vent covers in the home (if necessary), cleaning and disinfecting each one thoroughly.

 

Step 4. Removal of the panels on the air handler, brushing and vacuuming the encasement, the fan, the blower and all other accessible components, also cleaning the coils.

 

Step 5. Introducing an Agitator into the vent opening (furthest one away from the main system) to dislodge all debris from the walls of the ductwork and force them towards the dust collector. Method of agitation varies depending on the size and type of ductwork.

 

Step 6. After agitating an air sweep or an air snake is fed into the ductwork. This is a hose with a special attachment on the end of it, which supplies approximately 200 pounds per square inch of compressed air, and is used to push all the debris to the vacuum while the vacuum is pulling contaminants out of the ductwork through the filtration system, returning clean air back into your home. This frequently called the "positive-negative" method and is the way NADCA mandates that duct cleaning be performed.

 

Step 7. Introducing an Agitator into the vent opening (furthest one away from the main system) to dislodge all debris from the walls of the ductwork and force them towards the dust collector. Method of agitation varies depending on the size and type of ductwork.

 

Step 8. Supply and return ductwork are cleaned in mostly the same way. However, often times the return ductwork is wide enough to allow us to use hand brushes and vacuums in addition to agitation.

 

Step 9. (Optional) Sanitizer (antibacterial treatment which minimizes microbial growth. Air Duct Sanitizing is often used when people have allergies or are moving into a previously occupied home. It is also quite effective in eliminating odors from within the duct work.) applied to inside surface of the air duct system.

 

Step 10. Replace vent covers, and seal access panel(s). Access panels are closed with pre-fabricated sheet metal doors, which are attached with self-tapping screws then sealed with foil tape. This leaves a convenient access door for future ductwork maintenance, and will not affect air-flow.

 

During the cleaning process the entire air duct system will be inspected for leaks and proper air distribution.
