Improve your well being

Dirty air duct Does someone in your home experience allergies, asthma or respiratory disorders? What about headaches, nasal congestion or sinus problems? If so, the cure may be right under your nose in the form of the air you breathe.

Both Total Health and Better Health magazines cite that "1 of 6 people who suffer from allergies do so because of the direct relationship to fungi and bacteria in the air duct system." Simply put: dirty ducts can make you sick. Really sick. The Department of Consumer Affairs adds that "children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air."

Dirt, debris, pollen, smoke, pet hair, dust and dust mites, even dead skin gets trapped deep inside your ducts. This creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Every time you turn on your system, these contaminants get blown into the air that you and your family breathe.

Help eliminate odors and dust

Does someone in your home smoke? Do you have pets? Clean air duct Well, that smoke and animal dander doesn't just disappear - it winds up in your duct system. Think about it. Don't you notice that musty, stale smell that comes on when you start your system at the beginning of the heating or cooling season?

What about dust? Do you notice a layer of dust that seems to settle on your furniture right after turning your system on? That's a tell-tale sign of ducts desperately in need of cleaning. Most furnaces are only equipped with a throw-away style fiberglass filter. The American Society of Heating, Refridgeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) reports that "most commercially available fiberglass furnace filters are less than 7% efficient." This allows a tremendous amount of dust to settle into your duct work.

Save money on heating & cooling

When your system kicks on, does it seem that it's blowing a lot less forcefully than it used to? The problem may not be your fan...it could be your ducts are becoming more clogged. And, the harder your system has to work to push more air out, the longer the system has to run to adjust your homes temperature. The longer your system runs, the more money it costs you.

The expert cleaning solution process

Count on Super Vac to eliminate your dirty duct problem with our special cleaning process that has been approved by the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association).

Our state-of-the-art equipment is truck mounted offering superior stability. We begin the duct cleaning process by attaching an 8" vacuum hose to your furnace. We attach this hose to both the supply and return air ducts. Then, we proceed to remove all floor and wall registers and cover them with a temporary magnetic plate. Covering the registers allows the high pressured air to flow through the hoses pushing out the dust and debris. During this process we add several attachments such as our whips and brushes. These attachments are able to knock and wipe accumulated dirt and debris from the interior walls sending it through to our vacuum where it is collected and removed. We repeat this process for each and every register cleaning them one at a time.

When finished with cleaning all the ductwork we continue our inspection to the furnace. There we check the furnace top-to-bottom.

Because we care about the health and safety of your home we also include the following FREE safety inspections:

  • Water Heater
  • Clothes Dryer - When the lint is removed clothes dry faster as well reducing the chance of a fire
  • Air Conditioner / AC
  • Refridgerator Coils
  • Chimneys, Chimney Caps
  • Filters
It is recommended that all ducts be cleaned and serviced every 2 - 3 years and is ideal for those who are moving into a new construction home - remove unwanted construction dust and debris BEFORE you move-in.
