Avoid Air Duct Cleaning Scams
Story published from ABC 15 Arizona on August 28th, 2014. “We asked one of NADCA’s members, Air Quality Specialists, to take a look at Penny’s air ducts.The Glendale company has numerous certifications and has been in business for nearly 40 years. They brought a camera, snaked it through the air ducts, and were able to show Penny what it looked like less than 2 months after the cleaning. We saw solid bits and dirt. Then we asked owner Sharon Altenhoff about one specific charge on Penny’s invoice. It was for some kind of fog for the house. And it cost $1,600. She told me “I don’t understand it. I don’t understand why they did the house.”

Our Air Duct Cleaning Process
Quality air is our specialty
Whether in a residential or commercial setting, our duct cleaning process is sure to improve the quality of the air in your home or building.
Our licensed contractors use specialized tools, in conjunction with contact vacuuming, to dislodge dust and other particles. The last thing we want is to cause more pollution to your air through the cleaning process.
To minimize the threat of dust, pollen, or other debris spreading, we use high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) vacuuming equipment or vacuum equipment that exhausts particulates outside of the home.
Clean Air Ducts = A Better Home
Big benefits come from improving the air quality in your home
Air ducts are usually out-of-sight and out-of-mind. However, these behind-the-scene ducts can make a big difference in the quality of air that you breathe.
When air ducts become dirty, they are passageways to distribute dust particles, fungi, mold, bacteria, and other contaminants throughout your home.
Here are some reasons why cleaning your air ducts is beneficial to your home and your family:
The longer these toxins are allowed to move freely throughout your home, the more harmful the air becomes. Air duct cleaning will ultimately improve the quality of the air that you and your family breathe every day.
This will help improve or eliminate allergies, sneezing, headaches, and a number of other health issues caused by the dirty air in your home. Air Quality Specialists also offers indoor air quality testing services.
In addition to cleaning your air ducts, we will also check for leaks and seal them on the spot. With all leaks sealed, and dust and obstructions removed, air is able to freely move through the ductwork into the rooms of your home, making your home more energy-efficient and saving you money every month on your heating and cooling bills.
After your air duct cleaning, you will notice an even distribution of heat or cool air throughout every room in your house. Not only will the quality of your air be improved, but even the feeling of the air in every room will be just right for your family.
When air ducts become dirty, the dust particles that they carry get distributed throughout your home to your walls, furniture, and floors. With a cleaning, you will notice a drastic difference in the cleanliness of your home.
Step 1. Inspection / Estimate
Appointments start with a detailed inspection and consultation. All estimates are given in writing to establish a clear scope of work.
Step 2. Trained Technicians
No sub-contractors or one-man crews at Air Quality Specialists. Our NADCA-certified techs have experience with the latest and most effective cleaning procedures.
Step 3. Complete Setup
Work will not begin until the floors, doorways, and corners are protected against dirt or scratching. Protective shoe covers are worn at all times.
Step 4. Negative Air Pressure
The 12″ vacuum hose is attached to both the supply and return sides of the system. During the cleaning, all dirt and debris is pulled directly into the HEPAVac.
Step 5. Cleaning & Sealing
All registers are removed and cleaned, and viable duct leakage is sealed using the latest industry appropriate methods.
Step 6. Maximizing Vacuum
All registers are covered to stop the air flow and blowback. As each vent is cleaned, the cover is removed, maximizing the air flow in that duct line.
