As part of our air duct cleaning service, we clean the coil and other sensitive areas that should help keep the system functioning at top capacity.

There is just one thing you need to do before our specialists arrive: make sure we can get to every vent and return easily, and that we have good access around the HVAC.

How Can I Check If My Air Ducts Were Cleaned In A Proper Way?

First of all, ask the technician to show you and explain what was cleaned. You can also do a quick check of any supply and return register in your home. Take off the cover, and look inside with a flashlight. The interior should be free of dust and debris if it has just been cleaned.
