You wouldn’t believe the dirt, dust, mold, pollen, and animal dander are recirculated through our air ducts every time we turn on our heat or air conditioner. Combine this with moisture and you have the ideal breeding ground for fungi, germs and household mold. Studies have confirmed that some diseases, including salmonella, strep and legionaries’ disease are spread by contaminated air ducts.

Air duct cleaning can be something you may or may not have had done before, it’s a service that can be hard to wrap your head around and can be frustrating trying to find the right company to clean your system. With over 25 years of experience in the air quality industry, we take pride in making it as easy of a process as possible and making sure we get it done right the first time! We use a unique air whipping method to clean your entire system thoroughly and show you the dirt and debris we get out of your system ensuring complete to our standards.

Our vacuum equipment is Powerful and Removable from our truck to provide proper negative suction.

By sealing closing or covering all vents and applying a powerful vacuum we create negative pressure on the system, we then remove registers/supply vents and intake/return vents one at a time and clean and wash as needed.

The high powered air whip and vacuum provides the proper agitation to clean the duct system thoroughly. This method is designed specifically for cleaning all shapes and sizes of duct work including internally lined flexible ducting in commercial and residential homes.

The National Air Duct Cleaning Association or (NADCA) highly recommends cleaning with this method.

EnviroCON: is a mild bacteriostatic and fungistatic that we use when the primary objective of the treatment is to remove odors associated with mold, mildew or bacteria. EnviroCON is unscented and is NOT a perfume, cover-up or masking agent.

Anti-microbial Treatments

 

Anti-microbial treatments for your HVAC system

Breathe Fresh, LLC offers three anti-microbial treatments for your HVAC system, EnviroCON, OXINE and Sporicidin. EnviroCON and OXINE are manufactured by Bio-Cide International Inc. and Sporocidin is manufactured by Contec, Inc. All are EPA registered products. Many states have licensing requirements that must be met by air duct cleaning companies in order to legally apply anti-microbial treatments. We are in compliance with these requirements, but there are many other providers who are not. Before you engage a company to apply an anti-microbial treatment to your HVAC system, it might be a good idea to make sure they are properly licensed.

Ducting System Facts

Air ducts serve as the respiratory system of your home.  Over time dust, dirt, insects, pet hair, dander, pollen, construction debris, and more can build up in your duct system. These contaminants can:

  • Affect your indoor air quality.
  • Increase the amount of dust in your home.
  • Cause your heating and cooling systems to lose efficiency.

In new homes it is common to find drywall dust, sawdust, wood pieces, and fast-food wrappers left behind in the construction process. In older homes we often find these same items along with remnants of everything and everyone who has lived in that home since it was built, think about not dusting one room in your house ever, the dust accumulation in your air ducts can be unbelievable!


Buyer Beware

Don’t get scammed or mislead by companies that claim to clean your whole system for a low price or per vent, air duct cleaning should take at least a half a day to a full day in most homes if done correctly. Most companies say they will offer whole house cleaning package for a very low coupon price or have a higher base price but charge you per vent after a certain amount then they show up to do the work and up charge the bid in some cases as much as 10-30 times the coupon price, then they are in and out in less than 1 hour leaving 30 – 40 % of the Harmful Contaminants in your system. Leaving you scratching your head wondering what you really paid for!

 

 

Breathe Fresh Duct Cleaning Procedure

  • Step 1: Turn on system to ensure that unit is working properly, technician will inform customer of any problems before starting any work.
  • Step 2: Once unit is inspected we will then, layout large vacuum hose, extension cords and air compressor hose on large cloth drop cloths to protect your furniture.
  • Step 3: Then the technician will cut access panels (if required) and connect high powered vacuum for negative pressure.
  • Step 4: Taking our special fit filter blocker, we insert it in the filter door compartment in place of your filter to block each side of your system off from one another to ensure maximum suction.
  • Step 5: We then cover close or seal off all register and return vent openings for added negative pressure on the system.
  • Step 6: While our high powered vacuum is sucking negative pressure on the main duct, we go to each vent and remove covering washing each covering then analyze how much & how heavy the debris is, (if needed) we do a reverse extraction at that point from the register or return vent opening to collect it there. (Instead of sending it down the line to get stuck)
  • Step 7: Then air whip and blow high pressure air simultaneously to send smaller particles and debris down the whole pipe line to the main duct.
  • Step 8: Once we have cleared out all pipe lines and return intake channels, we then collect the rest of the debris out of the main supply and return trunk lines. (We do so through access panels we have made), by inserting air whips and high pressure reverse air nozzles, and this will whip and blast the debris towards the vacuum to be collected. (If needed) for (larger size or highly contaminated systems) we may need to make small holes (no bigger than a quarter) every 5 – 7 ft, on the ducting to ensure a proper cleaning. (Holes are plugged and sealed)
  • Step 9: After all contaminants have been collected, now we will disassemble the furnace and blower housing to inspect A/C coil, blower fan, motor and heat exchange. Then we blow, whip and vacuum out the furnace to get rid of any carbon and dust build up, then we disassemble the blower from the housing and motor then proceed to clean in detail to a like new condition.
  • Step 10: Now that everything is clean, we must sanitize/disinfect/deodorize the entire system, (if applicable) to get rid of germs, bacteria, pollen, dust mites and mold spores. This is done by applying a mist of solution through the access panels and in to each vent opening. (Solution is E.P.A. Certified for air duct systems)
  • Step 11: Now we reassemble the blower and furnace back to proper working condition replace all filters if available. (Filters not provided)
  • Step 12: After furnace is reassembled and ducting system is sanitized/disinfected/deodorized, we then seal all access panels and holes.
  • Step13: Then the technician will turn on system to ensure its back in proper working condition and show the customer so there are no discrepancies
  • Step 14: Clean up all messes, leaving no trace.
  • Step 15: Make sure the customer is informed about system and satisfied with the cleaning service, recommend our Referral Program.
