PBS’s Detroit Project
The Detroit Project is an initiative by Detroit’s community and PBS’s This Old House to help improve neighborhoods one house at a time. You can see how a renovation of this scale is done by watching season 36 of This Old House which begins airing on March 30th.
Safety King is glad to have contributed our air duct cleaning service to PBS’s Detroit Project. As a result, the air will be as fresh as the house once renovations are complete.
Another way to get a sneak peak at the Detroit house’s progress in a gallery article on The Detroit News. Here, you can read about the process and see before and after pictures of the outside of the building.
The renovations to this Detroit house airs on PBS’s This Old House soon, mark your calendars!

The best way to improve a community is one house at a time
Episode 3 of PBS’s Detroit. One House at a Time is available to watch now for free! The digital series will show you behind the scenes of the This Old House episodes set in Detroit. Those This Old House episodes will premiere on PBS on March 30th or on Detroit Public Television (channel 56) on Monday, April 3rd.
As part of the Detroit home’s rehabilitation, Safety King donated an air duct cleaning to clear decades of dust out of the house’s lungs. It is especially important to have the air ducts cleaned after a lot of in-home construction because particles like drywall and sawdust love to accumulate in the air ducts and then spread around the house once the HVAC system is activated.
As stated in the Daily Detroit, we couldn’t believe the difference of how the house looks now versus how it looked when we went out to clean the air ducts. We’re excited to see the process of the full transformation when the house is shown on This Old House in April!

Wouldn’t you repair a leaky water pipe?
Aeroseal is an air duct sealing process that seals your air ducts from the inside, reducing leakage by up to 90% or more. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until leaks up to 5/8″ wide are closed.
What are the benefits of sealing from the inside?
- Efficiency. A computer monitor provides details of the leakage rate as gaps are being filled during the process. At the end of the process, the system generates a computerized report providing an accurate account of the pre and post-seal leakage rate.
- Finding. The process automatically finds all the leaks. With traditional manual sealing, leaks can be overlooked or never identified.
- Accessibility. Accessing all the leaks is now simple and doesn’t require demolition of any kind.
- Effectiveness. Aerosealing ductwork is 95% effective at sealing leaks. Studies find it to be as much as 60% more effective than manual sealing.
- Cost. A 2001 government study found that aerosealing ductwork can potentially reduce both labor time and costs for duct sealing by 70%.
Two of our Aeroseal specialists, Tony and Bill, recently sealed the air ducts of a home in Belleville and had a significant impact on its annual energy cost.
We show each of our Aeroseal customers this comprehensive report so they have a visual representation of their improved air efficiency and energy costs. Click on the images for a closer look.

Peter George has established Safety King Nevada’s business profile in Pahrump!
After a successful grand opening and many freshly cleaned Nevadan home air ducts, our associate Peter George has established Safety King Nevada’s business profile in the Pahrump Valley Times. About the competition in Nevada, Pete says:
“There are three companies doing this in Pahrump and eight in Las Vegas. Air duct cleaning is what we do. There are some air-conditioning companies that install and clean air ducts but most of them don’t have the specialized equipment to do it. We do and we do a better job than they do because we do have the equipment.”
As he gains traction and spreads the word of his superior service, Pete is well on the way to building Safety King Nevada into the most sought-after air duct cleaning service in the region.
