Air Duct Cleaning is a service that many customers are not sure about since there are too many companies that SAY they do it – but if you dig deeper you’ll find out that they are not even certified to perform the work. NADCA certification is a very important credential to look for when choosing an air duct cleaning company in the Salt Lake City area. To get  and stay certifed to clean air ducts through NADCA you have to 1) attend a 2-3 day educational class, 3) take and pass a rigorous test, 3) commit to a code of ethics with respect to how you will treat your clients and 4) stay current on your continuing education credits and yearly fees. This certification is the first step to finiding a company that is professonally trained and educated on the correct methods and principles for cleaning HVAC Duct Work.

We had a customer call to have us come clean his duct work recently who had just kicked out another company from his house for this very reason. They came out to his home to clean the duct work, but the only equipment they had was a shop vac. Being sceptical, he watched as they began the vacuuming off the grills. He finally asked them if that was all they were planning on doing to clean the duct work and there reply was YES. He asked them to leave and promptly called Royalty Services.

Here are the steps in our air duct cleaning service ( this is NADCAs “Push-Pull” or “Source Removal” method of cleaning duct work):

  1. Meet with the client, have them show us around the home to visually inspect the HVAC system, answer their questions and point out any potential issues or problems if we find any. Give them the price to perform the cleaning and find out how they’d like to proceed.
  2. If they want to move forward with the cleaning we will start setting up our equipment, corner guards, and any needed drop cloths.
  3. A crucial step is to turn off the furnace and get the large vacuum negative air machine hooked up to the trunk lines above the furnace. This puts the entire system under a vacuum and air is flowing backwards from the vents back to the furnace where we have the large vacuum hooked up. This will stay running during the entire cleaning so that any dust that is kicked up in the duct work will get sucked out of the system and into the negative air machine. This step helps prevent any dust from coming out of the other vents during the cleaning.
  4. Once the system is placed under a strong vacuum, we can begin cleaning the vent lines one by one. We will insert our cleaning tools into each vent with the intent of moving the dust and debris all the way back to where the large negative air vacuum is hooked up so that it gets sucked out of the system and into the filters. This process will be performed on each of the Supply and Return vents. We will normally start with the Supply side then move the vacuum to the Return side and repeat the process.
  5. After cleaning the vent lines, it is time to clean the large trunk lines using the same process.
  6. Next we will focus our attention on cleaning the furnace. We will open it up, blow it out with compressed air, thoroughly vacuum it and hand wipe it where necessary.
  7. Finally we will seal up any access holes so that they are air tight, close up the furnace, turn it back on and test it to make sure it is functioning properly.
  8. Last step is to clean up our tools & equipment, answer any questions the client may have and collect payment.
