Heating & Cooling has been setting the standard for
air duct cleaning services.
Have My Ducts Cleaned?
Research has demonstrated that Heating, Ventilation
and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system maintenance may
allow them to run more efficiently by removing
debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean
systems are less likely to break down, have a longer
life span, and generally operate more effectively
than dirty systems. HVAC systems have been shown to
act as a collection source for a variety of
contaminants that have the potential to affect
health such as mold, fungi, bacteria and very small
dust particles, the removal of such contaminants
from the HVAC system and home should be considered
one component in an overall plan to improve indoor
How Should a Residential HVAC System be Cleaned? The most effective way to clean air ducts
and ventilation systems is to employ a source
removal method of cleaning. This is accomplished by
placing the system under negative pressure through
the use of a powerful specialized vacuum. While the
vacuum draws air through the system, devices are
inserted into the ducts to dislodge any debris that
may be adhering to the interior surfaces. The debris
then travels down the ducts and out to the outside
for collection. Capital Heating & Cooling uses a
specially designed truck for all our duct cleanings.
High pressure air sweeping tools are used through
every duct run ensuring all surfaces are clear.
After the source removal stage, we apply an EPA
approved sanitizing agent which kills 99% of all
microbial growths which may be in the duct work.
Microbial growth may include bacteria, mold and
fungi. Our sanitizer is extremely safe and does not
leave any perfumes or residue in the ductwork. In
fact, it is so safe, an identical product is used
for restaurant maintenance.
How Long Should it Take to Clean a Typical
To truly perform a quality duct cleaning, the
typical 1500 square foot home with the furnace
located in the garage will take approximately 3-4
hours. Of course, the extent of contamination,
furnace location, and other variables may extend
