Check Out the Rivers Edge Air Duct Cleaning Process…
Rivers Edge only uses trained technicians. Each technician will wear floor-protecting booties at all times while in your home. A large drop cloth and plastic corner guards are put in place to protect your walls and floor coverings.
Rivers Edge makes every effort to make sure your air ducts are cleaned properly and without a trace. The plastic wall and floor coverings protect wall corners from being scuffed in any way. Efficient and clean air duct cleaning is what you deserve and what the Rivers Edge technicians will deliver.
The Rivers Edge technician turns off the home furnace, air duct filter and air conditioner. Turning off the home furnace and air cycling units prevents any of the dust that is being removed from recirculating. An 8″ access hole is cut on both the supply side and return side of the air duct system. An 8″ hose is connected to the hole allowing all debris to be carried out to the hopper in the truck, with no dust circulated outside the air ducts.
Rivers Edge uses a powerful diesel truck mounted air washer that blasts the dust and toxins out of your home and into a containment unit for safe disposal. You wouldn’t want those toxins anywhere near the air you breathe and expertly removing them is our specialty.
1″ access holes are made in the proper positions to clean different sections of the main air duct work. These entry holes are properly sealed after they have been used to remove the dirt and allergen buildup. The performance of your home heating and cooling system is preserved and improved because the dust build up is no longer stopping the air flow.
The Rivers Edge technician carefully seals off all the air duct registers and returns to create a sound vacuum on the entire side of the home air duct system. Rivers Edge technicians have a proven magnetic sealing process that removes the maximum amount of dust buildup each time.
The cold air duct return vent covers are then removed and the open areas are vacuumed out. There is usually a dust build up and Rivers Edge technicians take special care with this extra step. Going the extra mile and removing dust before a seal is made is what takes the air duct cleaning to the next level.
Compressed air is power washed into the open areas of the returns after the supply side is cleaned. Only highly pressurized air is used and there is no dampness that would impact the function of the air ducts and turn the dust into sludge. The high air pressure allows every area of the home air duct system to be blasted out so dust and buildup is permanently removed and does not get recycled by the furnace or air conditioner.
The metal box under the floor register is called the “boot” which is wiped clean. The “boot” collects dust daily and cleaning out the dust and buildup in this box is another extra step done by Rivers Edge technicians.
The supply side air vent is air power washed with 225 pounds per square inch of compressed air in preparation for the final flush. This is the last area dust is known to build up in.
Specially designed air duct rakes are then inserted into the access holes to wash away any debris that may be attached to the surface of the inside walls of the large vents. There can be a thin film of residue and these funny looking air duct rakes leave the inside of the air duct shining and clean.
These air duct rakes are designed to target all levels of dust, dirt, dander and pollen, much like how dental tools scrape your teeth clean. The 225 pounds per square inch of air pressure sweeps away 99% of the dusty residues.
Newly machined metal access panels are screwed on and metal foil is taped over where the access holes were cut, ensuring a complete seal that offers no leaks whatsoever. The Rivers Edge technician will turn the furnace back on and verify that everything is properly sealed and circulating.
