Post-Cleaning Consumer Check List
First of all, we have been cleaning air ducts since 1969. We are a nationally recognized industry leader. We have been training air duct cleaners internationally since 1984. Our experience and reputation speak volumes.
Second, we actually clean your entire air duct system including the furnace blower compartment. And how do we know it’s clean? We show you and document the cleaning with digital photos!
Third, we educate you about your system and how we are doing your cleaning. We believe that is part of why you hired Safety King. Because most people are not familiar with the workings of their air duct and HVAC system many of our competitors take advantage of that.
Almost all of our competitors try to make it appear they charge less than we do which would make sense because none of them do everything that we do. But many of them actually charge more than we do after they add fees for things like additional vents and access panels. They do not have the equipment and certified team that we have. The technician team we have assembled, trained and certified by Safety King and NADCA, uses cutting edge tools and methods for cleaning (Source Removal). All of our technicians take as much time as required to deliver a thorough and complete cleaning every time. We accept nothing less than a complete and thorough cleaning for every customer. Period.
We quote a fair and upfront price for our services. If you’re like most of our customers, you’ll come back to us again and again as the years go by, because you will have the first-hand experience of getting a job well done by Safety King.
Don’t be fooled by $39.95 or $79.95 “Whole House Specials”, which at least gets you poor work by poorly trained and unlicensed/uncertified people and at most bait and switch. Try this. Call a few heating and cooling contractors and ask them who does the best job cleaning ductwork in this area. They’ll probably tell you it is Safety King.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust and debris. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
Research by the U.S. EPA has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty systems.
The most effective way to clean air ducts and ventilation systems is to employ Source Removal methods of cleaning. This requires a contractor to place the system under negative pressure, through the use of a specialized, powerful vacuum. While the vacuum draws air through the system, devices are inserted into the ducts to dislodge any debris that might be stuck to interior surfaces. The debris can then travel down the ducts to the vacuum, which removes it from the system and the home.
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the home owner. Our experience has shown that most homes warrant a full system cleaning every 3-5 years. Some of the things that may lead a home owner to consider more frequent cleaning include:

Sometimes…In most cases the vents and grills do not need to be removed because our tools can sufficiently access the ductwork from exposed areas (i.e. unfinished basements, drop tile basements, attics accessible crawls spaces). However, in some cases the ducts are not easily accessible and vents may need to be removed to get the tools inside the ducts (i.e. drywalled basements, inaccessible crawls spaces). Our technicans can let you know if the excercise of vent removal is beneficial or needed. We will happily remove vents during the service at your request.
Use the following pre-qualifications:
There are a variety of factors that could affect the time needed to clean a residential HVAC system, including the type of home, accessibility of the ductwork, and the number of workers on the project. A typical three or four bedroom home typically requires 2 to 4 hours for cleaning using Safety King’s state-of-the-art source removal techniques.
The best way to determine if the HVAC system cleaning was effective is to perform a visual inspection of the system before and after cleaning. If any dust or debris can be seen during the visual inspection, the system should not be considered clean. You can perform your own visual inspection using a flashlight and mirror in your vents, but a professional cleaning contractor should be able to allow you better access to system components and offer the use of specialized inspection tools. In addition, following this post-cleaning check list can help to ensure a top quality job.
A thorough visual inspection is the best way to verify the cleanliness of your heating and cooling system. All portions of the system should be visibly clean – i.e., such that you cannot see any debris with the naked eye. Have the contractor show you the following areas in your system after the cleaning work to verify that the job was performed satisfactorily:
