HVAC Cleaning Process

There are two key components to HVAC cleaning: breaking contaminants loose, and collection of contaminants.

Breaking Contaminants Loose

Properly cleaning HVAC systems requires removing the sources of contamination. Source removal begins with use of one or more agitation devices designed to loosen contaminants from the surfaces within the heating and air-conditioning system.

Examples of agitation devices include brushes, air whips, and compressed air nozzles or “skipper balls.” Agitation can also be achieved through hand-brushing or contact vacuuming.

Collection of Contaminants

During cleaning, the entire HVAC system is placed under continuous negative pressure (vacuum) to prevent the spread of contaminants. Continuous negative pressure allows very fine particles to be removed from the system as they become airborne, ensuring that these particles are not released into the living space when the system is turned on after cleaning.

This negative pressure also serves to extract the loosened contaminants, which are collected and removed from your home.

FRESHX 12 Step Process For Cleaner Air
Step 1:
A walkthrough of your home is conducted upon arrival. We inform our customer of the process of our cleaning and answer any questions addressed.
Step 2:
A certified technician disassembles the furnace and hooks up our high-powered vacuum (5,250 CFM) through your furnace to collect dust and debris, removing harmful contaminants.
Step 3:
The blower fan is taken apart and cleaned thoroughly.
Step 4:
We check all ducts lines for leaks, where possible.
Step 5:
We go to each register and vacuum register boots.
Step 6:
A power brush system may be used to mechanically brush inside your ducts to agitate loose dirt, where possible.
Step 7:
A high-pressure air compressor (195 PSI) with a special nozzle dislodges light dust and blows it towards the vacuum that is attached.
Step 8:
We hand wash boots and register grilles with an EPA registered sanitizer.
Step 9:
We seal leaks around register boots, if needed.
Step 10:
If mold/mildew is suspected, these allergy causing components are eliminated through our application of an EPA registered sanitizer.
Step 11:
Upon request, a video camera will inspect the duct lines to assure a job well done.
