DAVE'S DUCT CLEANING is committed to ensuring that the air your family breathes is clean!
We offer services that reduce contaminants in the air you breathe, lessen your energy costs and improve the performance of your home’s indoor air circulation.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines AIR DUCT CLEANING as:
...the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.
An Overview of the Process
During cleaning, the entire HVAC system is placed under continuous negative pressure (with a vacuum) to prevent the spread of contaminants.
Continuous negative pressure allows very fine particles to be removed from the system as they become airborne, ensuring that these particles are not released into the living space when the system is turned on after cleaning.
This negative pressure also serves to extract the loosened contaminants, which are collected and removed from your home.
Often HVAC system components collect significant amounts of debris and particulate during construction activities within a building. NADCA recommends that newly installed HVAC systems or HVAC systems undergoing renovation be verified clean, and protected before the system is permitted to operate.

Our advanced cleaning methods could help reduce your energy costs and improve the performance of your entire heating and cooling system.
As a NADCA certified duct cleaner, we are responsible for cleaning everything the air stream touches. The 2 MAJOR COMPONENTS are: the furnace blower and the AC Coils. When impacted with dirt or debris, your system will run inefficiently and could lead to degraded performance.
Ductwork runs throughout an entire house and is a main component of your ventilation system. Naturally, it is important to keep these ducts clean and sanitized to prevent the spread of germs and spores through the air. Mold is the primary concern with ducts, as it can easily build up in these isolated areas and can be tough to eradicate. The proper application of sanitizer and deodorizer is done through the use of a machine that can coat the entire lining of your HVAC system and should you require this service to be performed, please ask us about whether or not your home really requires it.
Please note: Sanitizing and Deodorizing is NOT a mandatory procedure in duct cleaning; Ask us why!
Consider the following:
When was the last time you emptied the dirt canister or replaced the bags? Also, when was the last time you changed the filters? Remember, part of the benefit of central vacuuming is cleaner air, and you need a clean filter to obtain this benefit.
If you're lacking airflow or if you're central vac lines are plugged, we can help!
Consider the symptoms of dangerous lint build-up in your dryer
1. Clothes take longer and longer to dry
2. Clothes don't fully dry
3. Clothes are hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle
4. The outside of dryer gets very hot
5. The outside exhaust vent flapper doesn't open much indicating low exhaust velocity
6. Laundry room becomes more humid than it is usually
7. Burnt smell is evident in the laundry
These are just some well known symptoms that could protect you and your family from the dangers of an unhealthy maintenance routine.
Consider the following:
When was the last time you cleaned the filters and cartridges of your HRV or HEPA filter? Your HRV or HEPA will not run efficiently if it is impacted with dirt or debris.
HRVs bring fresh air from outdoors into your home and then your HEPA, filters that air; so that your furnace can help recirculate clean air into your home. Through proper maintenance of these key components, you will ensure that you prolong the life of these parts so they can function properly like the way they were designed.
Condos and townhomes are very particular regarding how their respective HVAC systems are assessed, cleaned and restored.
In order to verify that your entire CONDO or TOWNHOME DRYER VENT EXHAUST/FANS and HVAC system are fully cleaned, we provide BEFORE/AFTER pictures and camera views to provide every homeowner with that extra peace of mind!
We have state of the art portable equipment to service homes that do not have immediate access to parking.
