Air Duct Cleaning
Our air duct cleaning company consistently invests in the most modern technology and air duct cleaning equipment to rid your home of the dirt, bacteria, dust and debris that has built up in your air ducts. There are two key components to air duct cleaning:
Breaking Contaminants Loose
Properly cleaning air duct systems requires removing the sources of contamination. Source removal begins with use of one or more agitation devices designed to loosen contaminants from the surfaces within the heating and air-conditioning system. Examples of agitation devices include brushes, air whips and compressed air nozzles. Agitation can also be achieved through hand-brushing or contact vacuuming.
Collection of Contaminants
During cleaning, the entire air duct system is placed under continuous negative pressure or HEPA-Filtered vacuumed to prevent the spread of contaminants. Continuous negative pressure and HEPA vacuuming allows very fine particles to be removed from the system as they become airborne, ensuring that these particles are not released in to the living space when the system is turned on after cleaning. This negative pressure and HEPA vacuuming also serves to extract the loosened contaminants, which are collected and removed from your home.
Air Duct System Access
HVAC cleaning is not a complex process, but each job is unique. Where possible, access to duct interiors should be made through existing openings such as supply diffusers, return grills, duct end caps, and existing service openings. Cleaning technicians may need to cut access holes in the duct work in order to reach inside with various cleaning tools. Creation of these service openings, and their subsequent closure, requires craftsmanship and professional skill.
There are a few things that you can do to maintain the cleanliness and efficiency of your air duct system:
- Get a good filter. Ask our trained technician for a recommendation.
- Clean/change the filters as needed. At least every two months.
- Even with properly cleaning and changing quality filters, the air duct system will still become dirty over time. Have your system inspected every two years to determine whether your system needs to be cleaned again.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vent cleaning is important for both safety and economic reasons. Few people realize that dryer vent duct cleaning significantly reduces the risk of a dryer vent fire and improves the efficiency of the dryer, thereby lowering utility costs. Don't let your dirty dryer start a fire in your home.
Home Air Quality Testing
EnviroGreen Cleaning & Restoration also offers Home Air Quality Testing services. There could be issues with the air quality in your home that you are unaware of, which could lead to unwanted and potentially dangerous conditions for your health.

Water Damage Repairs
If heating, ventilation, and air conditioning mechanical systems are insufficiently maintained, their metallic surfaces can provide the organic matter odors needs to grow.
However, water damage in the duct work can be treated. If the technician identifies water damage in the duct work system during the air duct cleaning process, he/she will show the client and recommend the use of an all-natural, botanical-based, anti-microbial treatment approved by the EPA for water damage within the duct work.
The water damage will be removed manually. The technician will then use a fogger, an electric device that coats the duct work with the solution to remediate the remaining odor.
If you suspect you have water damage elsewhere in your home or building:
- Do not touch water or wet items with bare hands.
- Do not breathe in odors
- Contact a certified water damage repair expert if you suspect water damage in your home.
Visual Survey for Water Damage [Non-Destructive]
We perform visual surveys in the home or building to check the fungal problems in a specific area.
The survey takes about 30-45 minutes and includes the following:
- Walking around the suspected problem area(s).
- Walking through and to the areas of concern.
- Viewing the area with a flashlight to highlight the suspected water damage or condition.
- Taking moisture readings of the structure such as walls, floors, and/or ceiling surfaces to detect moisture intrusion.
- Taking temperature and relative humidity readings to determine if they fall within ASHRAE recommendations.
- Providing an estimate for water damage repairs by industry standards [S-520]
