Common Coachella Valley Duct Cleaning and Sealing Questions & Answers
Q: What is the process of duct cleaning?
A: Duct cleaning is the process of removing dust, dirt, debris, animal droppings and insects, and mold or other bacteria from your HVAC ducts. The process involves attaching a blower with an agitator brush to one end of your ducts and a vacuum at the other end. During the process, the registers to your home are sealed off so that the particles we aim to remove travel to the attached vacuum and not into your home. The service typically includes cleaning the supply and return registers and cavities as needed.
Q: Is duct contamination preventable?
A: You can prevent much of your duct contamination by cleaning or replacing air filters regularly and regularly dusting and vacuuming your home. These practices reduce the dust and airborne contaminants in your home overall, reducing the amount of contaminants that make their way into your HVAC system.

Duct cleaning is recommended every 5-10 years, depending on where you live and the amount of wind, dust, and dirt that surrounds your home. This can help to prevent buildup and lower contamination in your home.
Q: What is duct sealing?
