We hook up a 8″ hose and pipe combination to the plenum (where the ducts connect to the furnace).The hose is connected to our Sani-vac trucks with the big bags that inflate on top of the truck.

We then go around and cover all the registers in the home/business. We then engage our Sani-vac system.The Sani-vac system creates a negative pressure and suction in the ductwork begins to pull out all debris and deposits the debris directly into our trucks.

We then go to each register and with 180-200 pounds of compressed air and blow all debris at the registers end back through the ductwork and directly into our trucks. This process flushes each vent.

Using the “Skipper Hose” with the same compressed air, we break up debris or dust clumps that may be attached to the wall of the duct.

Upon completion of the cleaning, the technician will then focus on cleaning the fan and fan compartment (on gas furnaces); heat exchanger: exhaust vent pipe and air conditioner coils if accessible.
