  • Professional Duct Cleaning Co., Inc.

    We do duct cleaning in Southern California, which includes air ducts, dryer vents, and kitchen exhausts. At Professional Duct Cleaning Co., Inc., we do duct cleaning the right way. Air duct cleaning (also known as vent cleaning) is the process of cleaning your entire heating/air-conditioning system. It is correctly done by disassembling your heater/air conditioner and thoroughly cleaning all the different airflow areas in it, then cleaning every duct (air passage), and removing and washing all the vents. Clean air is vital to good health. You like good, healthy, natural food and clean, pure water, right? How about the air indoors you and your family breathe most of the time? Shouldn't it be just as clean and pure? It's a fact: Air duct cleaning (vent cleaning), when properly done by trained, experienced professionals, can greatly improve your indoor air quality. However, cleaning your air ducts the right way is a difficult, highly technical, time-consuming job, but it's as easy for you as giving us a call. We'll take care of everything, from setup to cleanup, in a thorough, professional manner. Just call us! About professional duct cleaning: Our two senior company policies are as follows: 1) We always do a good job. 2) We never leave a mess. We're an honest, hardworking, local, family-owned business and charge real prices. Do not fall for one of those dishonest "bait-and-switch" duct cleaning companies (sales operations) you see on the Internet who do "$79 air duct cleaning" or "$99 - whole house duct cleaning." Don't believe them; there is no way they can do a good job for $99. We have gotten a lot of complaints from customers who have gotten their very low-grade "service." They ended up being charged two or three times the price we charge. We give you a money-back guarantee. In other words, when you use us, there is no risk. If you're not entirely satisfied with your residential duct cleaning, we'll come back and reclean at no charge. If you're still not satisfied, we will give you a full refund. We have been in business for over 18 years cleaning air ducts here in Southern California, doing all types of homes -- from major celebrities to ordinary homeowners -- as well as a large number of commercial, industrial and public works clients. We show you the results of our air duct cleaning (vent cleaning). We do this with before-and-after photos of your cleaning job. We are highly experienced, trained professionals who adhere to NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) standards and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines. We use the NADCA source removal "push/pull methods" for cleaning air ducts. Our use of negative air machines (large, extremely powerful vacuums) prevent cross contamination while your air ducts are being cleaned. Call us today. We're happy to answer all your questions.

If you don't know how to weed out unscrupulous duct cleaning companies, you'll end up wasting all your money and then have to pay again to have it done right. The following points will help you separate the honest, competent duct cleaning company from the shifty rip-off artist. Be on the lookout for the following: - Companies who advertise an unbelievably low price to draw you into getting your air ducts cleaned -- These companies charge a low price initially to get in the door. Once they're in your home, they inform you of all the "hidden costs" that you'll need to add on to have a "complete" duct cleaning (the way unethical carpet cleaning companies do). These guys really push "the dangers of mold spores" and the need to "sanitize" your duct work. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association actually recommends not using sanitizers unless a severe event has occurred, such as a fire or mold (which is very rare in the Los Angeles area). This type of "bait-and-switch" operation is well-known in the business for doing poor quality work and overcharging. The whole basis of their operation is sales, not hard work, so they can make "quick and easy money." The Environmental Protection Agency says that "duct cleaning services typically but not always range in cost from $450 to $1,000 per heating and cooling system, depending on the services offered, the size of the system to be cleaned, system accessibility, climactic region, and level of contamination." If there is an unusual situation encountered in the course of a job, requiring extra work (such as torn duct work, fiberglass insulation falling apart inside your air conditioner or ductwork, etc.), a reputable company will tell you the exact costs and get your approval before doing the work. Your less-than-honest type company wouldn't even know what to look for, much less have the technical know-how to do a proper, effective handling, nor would they tell you about the dangers of breathing fiberglass, etc. - Companies who only send one man out or who spend a short amount of time on the job -- Typically, it takes a two-man crew about 8 to 15 man-hours to clean a 2,000 square foot home air system properly. Most of the cheaper companies send only one serviceman, who spends an hour or two on the job. They sometimes have a "one man duct cleaning system," which looks very good on video, but whose level of cleaning does not meet the National Air Duct Cleaners Association Cleaning standards. - Companies who do not fully disassemble the heater/air conditioner prior to cleaning If the unit isn't cleaned correctly, dirt blows back into the ducts and into your living areas. What's more, dirty coils reduce air flow which greatly increases your energy usage. Cleaning the unit properly is labor intensive and requires much technical skill; it must be thoroughly disassembled. Many cheaper companies don't even clean the unit. At best, they take it apart somewhat and lightly vacuum. Just ask them if they take out the blower (fan) and wash it with water and clean the cooling coils; the reputable companies do, the questionable companies don't. - Companies who use ineffective duct cleaning methods not endorsed by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association Companies that have a "one-man duct cleaning system" should not be used. The method employed by the type of device they use is unable to easily travel past turns in the duct work, and therefore, large areas of your system are left uncleaned, leaving you with only a partially cleaned system. Another method used is simply to run a shop vacuum hose down your ducts without actually hand brushing the duct work. Some companies use a large truck-mount vacuum but do not physically agitate the duct work with brushes to ensure all dirt stuck onto the sides is dislodged and removed. These types of companies don't even bother to cut holes in the ducts or disconnect duct work when this is necessary to reach all of the ducts, as they are in the business of "making money," not working hard to do a good job. In this informative article, you'll learn the correct procedure for effectively cleaning air ducts. You can use this information to help you find a good, reliable duct cleaning company who will get your duct system thoroughly clean, giving you improved indoor air and peace of mind. The right way to clean air ducts: If you understand the correct way to clean air ducts, you'll then know which questions to ask prospective duct cleaners, so you can pick a competent, trustworthy company who will get your entire duct system properly cleaned, which can lead to better indoor air quality and your peace of mind. So let's get you educated on the right way air duct cleaning is done. First of all, each house or building has unique duct work; one size does not fit all. In order to ensure an air duct system is properly cleaned, a variety of methods need to be employed. No one duct cleaning system is workable in all different situations encountered. The following techniques, equipment and advice, utilized properly, are proven effective in producing a thoroughly cleaned air system: Proper vacuuming equipment, air duct cleaning tools and techniques must be utilized by the personnel performing the work. Usually, a large, high-pressure vacuum is attached to the main duct; air is then drawn from each vent into that vacuum. A spinning brush on a cable is often run up each duct to loosen and vacuum out any debris. However, sometimes all of the ducting can't be reached this way, so holes need to be cut or the duct work disconnected, and the rest cleaned by hand or special agitation and cleaning tools using compressed air. This normally requires a serviceman to go into the attic or under the house (which is something your cheaper companies are unwilling to do, because it requires too much time and effort). Of course, all air vent covers are removed and washed. Also, if ducts have fiberglass in them, they must be cleaned gently by hand vacuuming or compressed air only, not with a spinning brush, so that the insulation is not further damaged, which then results in fiberglass particles blowing out into your living areas. Full disassembly of the heater/air conditioner prior to cleaning is absolutely mandatory in order to do a proper cleaning job. Correct cleaning of the blower (fan) and cooling coils is vital to a thoroughly cleaned air system and is something that your "in-and-out" duct cleaning companies never do. Bear in mind that if your heater/air conditioner isn't cleaned or isn't cleaned properly, dirt will blow back into your duct work, contaminating your entire system, not to mention your living space. These two actions are extremely labor intensive and are typically standard procedure whenever an air conditioner (leading to duct work) is to be cleaned. Below is a step-by-step guide to the right way to clean an air conditioner. First, the blower (fan) is removed from the air conditioner. The electric motor is then removed from the blower, often necessitating disconnecting or cutting the electrical wiring. The blower is washed with water and a mild detergent to ensure it is completely clean. The electric motor is brushed and wiped clean. The inside of the air conditioner is vacuumed clean and an antimicrobial protective coating is applied to any exposed fiberglass inside the air conditioner. Next, the motor and blower are reassembled and the motor carefully rewired. Then, the motor and blower are re-installed into the air conditioner. A cooling coil inside your air conditioner looks very similar to an automobile radiator but has refrigerant coolant instead of water running through it. The cleaning of the coil is accomplished, where possible, first by removing or cutting a hole into the plate obscuring the bottom portion of the coil. The coil is then vacuumed and brushed. High-pressure compressed air is often used to blow out the loose debris caught between the coil fins. A water less coil cleaner is applied to the coil. When needed, the coil plate is sealed back up. Companies who have little or no experience doing commercial duct cleaning are not a good choice to clean your residential or commercial duct system. Commercial duct cleaning requires a much higher level of training and technical skill than does residential duct cleaning. A company with a great deal of experience doing public and private commercial cleaning projects has encountered practically all the different scenarios that could possibly arise on various residential and commercial jobs, thus giving them the capability of troubleshooting whatever difficult situation might come up on your project. A company who mainly does residential jobs would most probably not have the necessary knowledge and experience to handle whatever unusual circumstance that turns up during the cleaning of your air ducts. Correct diagnosis and effective handling of fiberglass inside your air duct system can be vital to ensure you have safe indoor air. Fiberglass lining is in your unit and maybe in your ducts. It breaks down over time and contaminates your system, and thus your home. A good air duct cleaning company would suggest sealing it with a special protective coating to help prevent fiberglass from being blown out through your vents and to help safeguard against future contamination. Most people little realize that fiberglass insulation exists inside the vast majority of heating/air-conditioning systems. Some of this insulation has an outer veneer which breaks down over time and is eroded by the constant air stream. Once this occurs, it is quite commonplace for fiberglass to then be blown out the vents and into your living environment. Some of this insulation inside the ducts has no outer veneer at all and directly erodes into the air stream and into your living area. To remedy this, the fiberglass should either be removed and replaced with a fiberglass alternative such as Armstrong "Armaflex" or sealed with a special antimicrobial protective coating to help prevent future fiberglass erosion. Checklist for choosing the best duct cleaning company: This is not just an article; it's a complete list of all the questions (and their correct answers) you'll need to ask any prospective air duct cleaner to easily determine if they will do a good job for you or not. Checklist for choosing the best duct cleaning company: You can use this checklist to help you find a competent, trustworthy company who will get your entire duct system properly cleaned. Use of this checklist will ensure that you choose an ethical company who will do the job thoroughly and correctly. These are the questions you need to ask (and the right answers) when you're looking for an air duct cleaning company that you can trust to do good work: - Is the company advertising an unbelievably low price (less than $200) to draw you into getting your air ducts cleaned? (Right answer: no!) - Do they recommend and charge extra for biocides or sanitizers? (Right answer: no! The National Air Duct Cleaners Association actually recommends not using biocides or sanitizers unless a severe event has occurred, such as a fire or mold, which is very rare in the Los Angeles area.) - Do they have a c61/d64 duct cleaning contractor's license issued by the state of California contractors state license board? (Right answer: yes!) - How many service people will be coming out to your house to do the job? (Right answer: at least two.) - How long do they tell you the job will take? (Right answer: definitely more than 1 or 2 man-hours. Typically, it takes a two-man crew about 8 to 15 man-hours to clean a 2,000-square foot home air system properly.) - Do they clean the heater/air conditioner? (Right answer: yes!) - Do they wash the heater/air conditioner blower (fan)? (Right answer: yes!) - Do they clean the coil inside the heater/air conditioner? (Right answer: yes!) - What do they do with any exposed fiberglass inside the air conditioner? (Right answer: apply an antimicrobial protective coating.) - Do they use a one-man duct cleaning duct cleaning setup? (Right answer: no!) - Do they physically agitate the duct work with a spinning brush on a cable, a brush or hand vacuuming, or do they just hook a vacuum up to the system or use compressed air only to clean the ducts without brush agitation? (Right answer: the National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends actual physical agitation of the duct work with various types of brushes, in conjunction with a high-pressure vacuum, not just a high-pressure vacuum or compressed air alone. This type of process is commonly referred to as the "push and pull" method of cleaning [source removal]. The vacuum provides the "pull", while the air tools and brushes provide the "push.") - What do they do if their tools won't reach the entire length of the duct from the register (vent cover) while cleaning? (Right answer: The service person crawls into the attic or under the house and disconnects or cuts holes in the areas of the duct work that were unable to be reached from inside the house. He then cleans the duct work while there and then reconnects/seals the duct work in a manner conforming to the state of California building codes. [note: there is no "duct cleaning system" made that can automatically properly access and effectively clean all of the duct work in every duct system. To achieve this actually requires thorough knowledge and hard work.]) - Do they remove all the registers (vent covers) and wash them? (Right answer: yes!) - How do they clean duct work that is made of fiberglass or has fiberglass insulation inside the ducts? (Right answer: Ducts that have fiberglass in them must be cleaned gently by hand vacuuming or compressed air only, not with a spinning brush, brushes or any type of agitation device, so that the insulation is not further damaged, which leads to fiberglass particles blowing out into your living areas.) - Are they very experienced in commercial as well as residential air duct cleaning? (Right answer: yes!) - If they find the fiberglass insulation inside your duct work or heater/air conditioner is deteriorating, how do they handle it? (Right answer: The fiberglass should either be removed and replaced with a fiberglass alternative such as Armstrong "Armaflex" or sealed with a special antimicrobial protective coating to help prevent future fiberglass erosion.)
