What is Air Duct Cleaning?


One of the things people love about being outdoors in Virginia is the fresh air. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that same freshness and cleanliness inside the home? Air duct cleaning can help your family enjoy excellent indoor air quality year-round.

What is air duct cleaning? It’s a process that removes accumulated dirt, pet dander, viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants that build up inside ducts. Technically, this service is called HVAC cleaning because it also cleans the indoor heating, ventilation & air conditioning unit.
