Air Duct Cleaning Pricing - What to expect
Service Warnings and Details:
Noise: To ensure proper cleaning we use the best portable vacuum on the market. The Hypervac 220 is extremely powerful, but does emit medium to loud noise. This will be set up next to your furnace. You will also hear our whips agitating the ducts and trunk lines as we move room to room.
Door: We will have one door or window to the home cracked open to run a ½ inch air hose from our van mounted compressor to the inside of your home. We can tape a majority of the door or window closed if this an issue.
AC/Heat: We will have to turn the furnace off during the cleaning process therefore you will have no heat or A/C during service.
Additional: We will have to run some extension cords and air lines around the home.
We will be all over the home multiple times with these air lines, extension cords, and vacuums.
Furnace Access: We will need a 3 foot wide path to your furnace as well as room in the furnace room for our equipment, we can do some minor moving of items if needed. We set up our negative air machine within 10 ft of the furnace. It is roughly 2 ft x 2 ft x 4 ft tall.
Vent Access and removal: We will need access to all of your supply and return vents, again we can do some minor moving of items if needed. We will need to remove most vents from floors or walls. If the vents are painted on or obstructed we will notify you. The options from here vary, but we are almost always able to clean every vent. We will discuss the options, including cutting around the vent with a razor blade to remove or using a specialized microline, a single whip tool, designed for these applications.
Pets: We are all extremely pet friendly and are happy to work around animals and have no problem with animals home during service. It will be noisy and there will be a lot going on, which can sometimes stress pets. We will also have to have a door cracked ½ inch, leading to a temptation for escape artists. We have also run into the occasional aggressive or protective pets. If you have any concerns please let us know. We are usually able to play musical rooms if there are any concerns.
Limitations:. On extremely rare occasions, we may run into spatial limitation in the furnace room, limited access points on the furnace for our negative air machine, or areas where our whips just can’t access. We will bring any limitations or concerns to your attention as soon as possible and often have multiple options or solutions to any issues that may arise.
Suspect Asbestos/mold: Asbestos and mold can be extremely dangerous for the homeowner, occupants, and our team. We have found suspect asbestos and/or mold in roughly 50% of homes built before 1980. If we find signs of either, we will immediately bring to your attention to discuss remediation. We will not clean systems with suspect mold or asbestos present because of the dangers it may pose to our customers and team members.
