Of the cleaning services in which we are proud to be specialists, air duct cleaning is by far the one that requires the most trust between the consumer and the air duct cleaning service provider. There are many unscrupulous air duct cleaning companies purporting to be something they are not, many advertisements using unrealistic scare tactics, and of course, bait and switch tactics are prevalent in the industry.
You need to feel confident in the professionalism of the firm you hire to clean your air ducts because you are asking someone to clean the inside of your duct work, where it can be difficult to see the results of the job.
Signs Your Air Ducts Need To Be Cleaned
When it comes to your home’s air quality, it’s something that shouldn’t be messed around with. There are a few telltale signs that you should have your air ducts cleaned. These signs include:
- Bug infestations
- Microbial growth inside the ducts
- Increased levels of dust in your home
- Poor airflow in the home
- You and your family members experiencing health problems
If you find any of these issues arising in your home, it may be a sign to clean the air ducts out as soon as possible. By seeking the assistance of professionals, you can rest assured that your air ducts will be as good as new, and your home’s air quality will be clean.
How Our Air Duct Cleaning Process Works
Air duct cleaning is also a good idea after completing a remodeling project, when moving into a new home, or if you experience increased allergies. There is some disagreement within the industry about the best method for cleaning air ducts. The two schools of thought are the “negative air” approach and the rotary brush and vacuum approach.
We believe that both air duct cleaning methods can achieve great results in most situations when performed properly by competent technicians. However, our focus has always been on high-quality residential service. The type of residential duct work commonly used in homes in the South poses unique challenges to duct cleaners because it is soft, flexible, and does not go in straight lines.
Negative Air Duct Cleaning
Firms using the negative air approach are especially challenged by this type of ductwork, as that process was originally designed to work well on the rigid metal ductwork commonly found in the North and in large commercial buildings. The tools used to agitate the duct work in negative air cleaning are very difficult to get all the way into your duct work and can damage the lining of the ducts we find in most residences in the greater Jacksonville area.
Rotobrush aiR+ Air Duct Cleaning
We use Rotobrush aiR+ professional air duct cleaning equipment (rotary brush and vacuum) and believe very strongly that this is the best equipment to clean the air ducts in your home. Our equipment features a camera system so that if you would like, you can see what we are doing as we are doing it.
The Rotobrush aiR+ is designed specifically to handle the soft, flexible ducts in homes in the South. We are able to clean air ducts by inserting the rotating brush into the duct. With the brush rotating at 450 rpm, it loosens any debris that may be stuck inside. While the brush is scrubbing the walls, the vacuum sucks up the debris, leaving your air ducts clean.
How We Go Beyond Standard Cleaning Service
Once we have cleaned your entire air duct system, our job is not finished. All of your vent covers are washed, and before they are replaced, we sanitize your system with EnviroCON antimicrobial fogger. This EPA-registered disinfectant is commonly used in hospitals and nursing homes, and works to eliminate mildew and mold in your air ducts.
And, lastly, everything in your home is left exactly as we found it, with no mess left behind! Beware of any air duct cleaning service that says they can clean your air ducts for a $79 special or anything like that. Proper cleaning of air ducts cannot be done in twenty minutes – so remember, you get what you pay for.

The Benefits of Clean Air Ducts
There are countless benefits to having your air ducts cleaned in Jacksonville. These benefits include:
- A cleaner living environment: When your air ducts are cleaned, all the gunk, dust and bugs that were in the ducts in the first place will be eliminated. Due to this, your home will be hygienic and have better air quality.
- Ease in breathing: Along with air quality stated above, health and breathing will be made easier. If you and your family suffer allergies or have slight breathing issues, it could be due to dirty air ducts.
- Removing odors: When your air conditioners run, everything is filtered through your air ducts, meaning that cleaning product fumes, mold, smoke, and food parties can sift through the air into the ducts. All this will accumulate over time, causing a dirty air duct system.
