How are air ducts cleaned?
Professionals use a specialized vacuum cleaner in order to clean an air duct system. It creates a negative pressure inside air duct which cleans the debris and contaminants which are stuck inside for quite a while. Before starting the process of cleaning, professional applies anti-microbial chemical sanitizers in the interior of ducts which kills the bacteria and give way for the air to pass. Before, you plan to call a professional, verify if all their products and equipment are approved by EPA. Atomizer used these days creates fog and mist that spreads the sanitizer through the air ducts and ventilation.
Types of Vacuum used by Professionals?
When an air duct cleaning professional shows up at your home or at a commercial building, he'll most likely use one of the two popular types of vacuum collection system:
1. Truck- mounted collection system
2. Portable unit.

Vacuum system should be attached safely to a collection device so once suction is started all the debris is collected safely. The air duct cleaning services range in cost from $450 to $1000 per heating and cooling, depending on
1. Additional Services offered
2. Size of the system
