Duct Cleaning Procedure

Cleaning of Your HVAC Components

Your heating and cooling systems have a lot of parts – fans, burners, heat exchangers, air conditioning, etc. – that become dusty and dirty over time. Keeping these parts clean not only increases their efficiency, but it also extends their lifespan.

Kettle Valley Duct Cleaners uses a Caddy Vac® truck-mounted vacuum system with a 200 PSI air compressor.

How it Works

Our technicians create continuous negative air pressure by inserting a vacuum hose into both the supply and return duct work. Continuous negative pressure loosens debris, fine particles and contaminants and prevents their spread, ensuring they are not released into the living space when the system is turned on after cleaning.

We go to each vent individually with air-powered agitation devices to dislodge dust and debris and push it to the main trunk line. We clean the main trunk line using a very effective rod-and-whip system and air skipper lines to pull dust and debris back to the vacuum.

If necessary, we wash and degrease the fan and housing of your furnace. We clean burners and the heat exchanger and inform you of any abnormalities. We then test all of your HVAC equipment and patch all access holes using plastic plugs and appropriate gauge sheet metal patches.

Kettle Valley Duct Cleaners also has the capability to inspect up to 35 feet from a given point into your duct work with our camera system.

Once all the debris and contaminants have been dislodged, the powerful vacuum unit will remove it safely from the home and place into the filter compartment inside of our truck, similar to your home vacuum.

Importance of Cleaning after Renovations

HVAC system components collect significant amounts of debris and particulate during construction activities within a building. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends that newly installed HVAC systems or HVAC systems inside of structures undergoing renovation be verified as clean or be cleaned before the system is permitted to operate.
