How is the cleaning done?
According to the National Air Duct Cleaning Association, the most effective way to clean air ducts and ventilation systems is to use a source removal method of cleaning. To do so, it requires the contractor to put the system under negative pressure through a specialized vacuum. While the vacuum draws air through the system, a series of flexible whips and rods are used to agitate the system and dislodge and dust, dirt, or debris that has settled within the system. By dislodging the particles, they are forced to travel down the ducts to the vacuum to be removed from the system and the home.
