Air Duct Cleaning
Why Clean Air Ducts?
For most people most the time the thought of cleaning air ducts never crosses their mind and for this simple reason: Out of sight out of mind. In fact, I never thought of it myself until one day I opened my return cover because I seen dust building up on the outside of it and it made me gag, literally. I immediately went to google to find a company to clean air ducts and had them all cleaned out. What a difference it made in my ability to breathe in my home! I never realized how important it was to clean vents and now I own Utah's Best Air Duct Cleaning company!

How We Clean Air Ducts
The Process To Properly Clean Duct System
1. Remove and clean all covers
2. Brush & vacuum all duct work connected with the supply and return vents
3. Brush & vacuum main trunk lines
4. Clean blower motor/air handler and housing unit (if needed)
5. Dissemble and clean A Coil (If needed)
We often get asked what tools we use to do the job, to which I answer "the best!"
We us a high powered industrial vacuum with a HEPA filter designed specifically for duct cleaning. (Costed more than my first pick-up truck).
Along with this we use a cable connected to a remote that spins the brush and knocks off all contamination from the sides of ductwork.
Q. Will it blow dust around in my house?
A. Generally, NO. The process we use is suction, no blowing involved. We first vacuum, then brush, then vacuum, all dust is contained.
Q. Do I need to leave the home while you clean?
A. NO, It's not necessary, it is noisy (loud vacuum) while we are working but not to the point to force you out of your home.
Q. Can you show me some before and after pictures?
A. Absolutely, every job we take before's and after and will show them to you.
