What does the air duct cleaning process involve?

The process includes using specialized tools like a gas powered vacuum or an electrical vacuum. Compressed air is used to connect rods with different tips that will help dislodge and remove dust and debris from the ducts towards the vacuum.

A vacuum is connected using 8-inch hoses by the trunk lines through an access point, this will generate suction in the system. Vent covers will be removed and the rods will be inserted into the vents, creating agitation and blowing dust and debris towards the main trunk lines where the vacuum is connected.

Where does all the dust and debris go?

Very important question, and the reason why you should hire a knowledgeable and trustworthy company, like K.O. Air Ducts. We use professional equipment to get the job done right. All the dust and debris will be contained within the system and will be suctioned out by the vacuum into a filtered bag. Roto brush equipment, carpet cleaning equipment, or regular shop bag will not be sufficient to thoroughly suction everything out from the vents.
