Curious about #airduct cleaning? Check out the Modernistic way!

We are dedicated to providing you the best possible indoor air quality through our cleaning process, and truly believe that a thorough air duct cleaning from Modernistic is the best way to keep your indoor air quality at its best.
Here’s what to expect from the process on the day of your cleaning:
- Once our certified air duct cleaners arrive, they will cut two large access holes to attach the 8″ round vacuum hose to the supply and return lines of the HVAC system, through which the extraction will take place. A video inspection is performed at this time, allowing you to view the system before it is cleaned. A series of 1″ holes will also be created to whip and agitate the build-up, thus loosening the dirt and debris so it may exit your house freely.
- Next, the system is sealed and a powerful vacuum is attached to the main trunk line of the HVAC system. This vacuum collects the dislodged contaminants and disposes of them in a hopper in the truck-mounted system, leaving your vents fully cleaned. The vacuum runs throughout the appointment, pulling through the vents as they are cleaned by creating negative air pressure within your home.
- Then, Modernistic’s technicians will begin cleaning the vent covers and air runs. We will gently remove vent covers as necessary (vents that are painted or glued on, screwed in or caulked shut can be cleaned without removal) to clean them and the duct work that connects them to the main trunk line. Using pressurized air, the technicians will dislodge dirt, debris, pet hair, and so on from the vent covers and air runs, pushing it towards the main trunk line.
- Lastly, after the contaminants have been collected inside the main trunk lines, whips attached to the air hose are applied to push the lingering dirt and debris towards the vacuum for extraction. Because it uses negative air flow, the dirt and debris are kept within the system and extracted directly into the truck instead of being blown around the house.
Modernistic’s air duct cleaning process, a combination of whipping, vacuuming, and compressed air, ensures that your home’s ventilation system is thoroughly cleaned. With no mess to clean up and cleaner air to breathe, you will truly enjoy the benefits of Modernistic’s residential air duct cleaning service. We are able to clean commercial air duct systems using these methods as well, including large structures such as hospitals and apartment complexes!
