Why clean the air ducts in your home?
The air ducts in your home circulate air in and out of each room. Whether it’s heating or cooling season, this happens multiple times a day to maintain a consistent temperature in your home.
There’s more than dust that collects in your air ducts. Pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mildew, and other contaminants may hanging around as well. Giving your ducts a good cleaning can be challenging to do without specialized equipment.
Who can benefit from a duct cleaning?
Regardless of if your home is ancient, brand new, has undergone renovation, or is somewhere in between, a duct cleaning can help you get the deep clean you’re looking for.
New homes and renovated homes are often professionally cleaned before taking occupancy, but there are things even the best can’t reach. “Experienced” homes have made many memories but often hold some dirty treasures! We recommend duct cleaning as part of your routine home HVAC system maintenance.
What to expect in your duct cleaning appointment:
The DJI technicians use a Brush and Vacuum technique, which power brushes the ductwork and vacuums the debris in one step. Our specialized equipment utilizes HEPA filtration made for this application only. It is designed to remove debris and contaminants from hard to reach places.
Upon arrival, our team begins the cleaning process which includes completing a 26 step quality checklist to ensure a premium job every time.
The air duct cleaning process:
- Remove and clean registers

- Replace the registers
- Provide Pre and Post Camera Inspection

Some important information to understand about your service:
- The equipment is quite loud and comparable to a large shop vacuum. It is in operation during the majority of the service.
- There’s typically a technician and assistant onsite during the entire visit. They may be in and out of your home multiple times.
- Service times average between 3 and 6 hours depending on the size of your home and system design.
- We take steps to minimize all mess, but it’s common for some residual dust to be found in the home after service. Due to accessing the HVAC system, removing dirty registers and movement of home furnishings, household dust may be stirred up.
- The Dave Jones team will adjust, move and replace standard household furnishings that don’t require special equipment or strenuous efforts to access duct openings. The homeowner is responsible for moving and replacing heavy, awkward or other specialty furnishings or can opt. out of cleaning at the openings which are blocked by these items.
- We ask for the owner or decision-maker to be present during service and will be able to review services completed and collect payment before leaving your home.
