The furnace and air ducts act as your home's "respiratory system". This system can become "congested" when filled with contaminants and debris. Allergy sufferers can benefit greatly by reducing the amount of "triggers" that are present in ductwork. The proper cleaning of the air duct system is a necessity. Additionally,sanitizing and deodorizing, in certain circumstances, is key. There is no comparison to Productive's service and integrity. We are working hard to be Ohio's premier air duct cleaning company. More about duct cleaning.

Air Duct Cleaning Process & Equipment

At Productive Professional Air Duct Cleaning, we are dedicated to cleaning your entire heating and cooling system.  From the registers and returns to the trunk line and furnace, we will ensure that the air system is completely clean and free of debris.

According to the EPA: "If you decide to have your heating and cooling system cleaned, it is important to make sure the service provider agrees to clean all components of the system and is qualified to do so. Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the system, thus negating any benefits."  - EPA "Should I Have the Air Ducts in My Home Cleaned"  Download the entire document here.

If you see an Air Duct Cleaning offer for “up to 10” registers, understand that this approach does not address the entire heating and cooling system.  And is probably a waste of your time and money.

At Productive Professional Air Duct Cleaning every job is a complete cleaning of the heating and cooling system for one low price.

What to expect

Our technicians will first inspect your heating and cooling system to check for any hazardous materials, locate important system components, and select appropriate access points to best clean the system.

If your house is central-cooled, our technicians will access the cooling system evaporator coil.  This is the distribution mechanism of your air conditioning system, and it must be protected if the system is to be cleaned completely and run efficiently.  Just one millimeter of dust on the surface of your evaporator coil can render it just 40% efficient.

Once the evaporator coil is covered and protected, our technicians will put to use a variety of pneumatic tools Driven by a 160 psi gasoline-powered compressor to push and pull all of the dust and debris in the system toward our state-of-the-art vacuums.  These tools allow us to navigate the length of the system, reaching into corners and around obstacles that no vacuum hose ever could. This allows us to loosen and lift debris moving it from the furthest corner of the duct work into the main trunk line and out of your home.  And we’re not leaving until 100% of your home's heating and cooling system is clean.

Where does it all go?  We'll attach 5250 cubic feet per minute suction power to the air system, cleaning from each register through the main trunk line, the furnace components, and every inch of your home’s air return system.  This will pull the debris out of the house through an 8 inch diameter vacuum hose without re-contaminating your home's interior with loose debris or vacuum exhaust.
