This is because almost none of them do what we do. The others do not have the equipment we have, the technician team we have assembled and trained and had certified by NADCA, and the “Source Removal” procedures that we use on every single job we do. It would be very rare for any of our competitors to spend as much time on a job as our technicians are expected to. We typically take between two and three hours to complete an air duct cleaning, even with no extras. Four to six hours on larger homes. All of our technicians know that they have unqualified support from management to take as much time as it takes to deliver an absolutely thorough and complete cleaning at every job. If our people fall short of that ideal, for any reason, we make it right with the customer. We accept nothing less than a complete and thorough job for every customer. Period.
Admittedly, a few local providers have one or two of the characteristics mentioned in the previous paragraph. But nobody has the whole package like we do.
We actually charge as little as we can and still do the job we do. If it turns out that you do hire us to do your home, if you’re like most of our customers, you’ll come back to us again and again as the years go by, because then you will have that first-hand confidence of getting a job well done when it is No.1 Cleaners doing the work.
|TRUCK MOUNT POWER VAC vs PORTABLE MACHINE|
|Using a 38HP gas engine with a massive power of suction, up to 10,000 c.f.m. (cubic feet of air per minute)||Works like a shop vac machine using 110 volt electric power, with only 700-900 c.f.m.|
|Clean the entire system, we can fit through any size ductwork and every turn of the system (using one inch or less of air washing tools).||Most of the job is done around the opening and a few feet inside the duct, you can not take a 90 degree turn and can not clean the ductwork that are less than 5″ in diamter. They use a vacuum hose that has a 3″ diameter while most ductwork are about 4″ in diamter or less.|
|Clean job, vacuum unit is outside the house and all the debris is pushed down the duct through the main trunk (not inside the house)||Can be a very messy job, using low power vacuum machine inside the house at time of cleaning is done, when only some of the debris is inside the machine, while the rest of it is left inside the duct system, and will be blown into the house when the unit is turned on.|
IF OTHER COMPANIES DON’T SHOW YOU WHAT THEY USE – THERE IS A REASON
WHY!!! ALWAYS DO YOU AIR DUCT CLEANING WITH PROFESSIONALS!!!
Research by the U.S. EPA has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty systems.
There are a variety of factors that could affect the time needed to clean a residential HVAC system, including the type of home, accessibility of the ductwork, and the number of workers on the project. A typical three or four bedroom home will require 1.5 to 3 hours for cleaning using Power Vac state-of-the-art source removal techniques.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (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 particles of duct and debris. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
