Residential Air Duct Cleaning in Chicago
Many homes and businesses in Chicago enjoy heating and cooling their homes using their trusty heaters and air conditioners. However, not many people know that cleaning your air ducts and filters will ensure that your heater and air conditioner is working at its optimal efficiency. At RJ's Heating and Air LLC, we recommend that our Chicago clients have their air ducts cleaned approximately once every two years. This will allow for particles to be easily cleaned without giving them the chance to solidify to the parts and pieces of your heating and cooling system. Regular maintenance will have your home maintain a comfortable temperature all year long and will ensure you are getting the most bang for your buck out of your heating and cooling system.
Our Cleaning Process
- Arrival: We will arrive at your home and do a thorough walkthrough and inspection.
- Preliminary Setup: We will cover your furniture with cloth and ensure that our workspace is covered so that your home stays clean and free of any debris that may result during the cleaning process.
- Grill Removal: After setting up a workspace, we will safely remove all grills that lead to the air ducts and set them aside to be cleaned. We will carefully save all nuts and bolts so that we can put the grills back easily once the cleaning has finished.
- Seal off Register: Our expert technicians will seal off all air registers in the home so no dust comes shooting out during the cleaning process.
After this preliminary setup, we use a negative air machine which sucks particles out of the air ducts using a suction process. To supplement this action, we use a small vacuum to spot clean heavier particles that may be left behind in the reverse air cleaning. We then send an agitating brush head which is attached onto a hose into the duct to loosen particles that were left behind in the negative air blower process.
After thoroughly cleaning everything, we put it back in place and ensure that we clean any residue left on the floor so that you don’t have to do so after we leave. It is important to us to ensure that we provide a quality service from start to finish. That means from the moment you greet us at the door, to the moment we leave, everything is left clean and tidy, just as you found it. We treat your home as if it were our own, so that you feel your space has been respected.
After the air duct cleaning has been done, we remove the air blower which we fully dismantle and clean using biodegradable, high quality cleaning agents and high pressure water to loosen any stuck on particles. After completely drying the parts, we place them back, using any necessary sealant to finish the job. After a final sweep and walkthrough, your HVAC system is cleaned and ready for use!
