Following you will find a list of facts about our company as well as some facts about duct cleaning in general in the state of Oklahoma:
- Oklahoma Duct Cleaning has cleaned over 20,000 homes in the state of Oklahoma. Click here for our referral list
- Oklahoma Duct Cleaning uses the patented "Source Removal" system to clean duct systems.
- The owner of Oklahoma Duct Cleaning has over thirty five years experience in the air conditioning business in central Oklahoma.
- The state of Oklahoma requires NO license for duct cleaning. Which basically means that anybody with a roll of paper towels and a wet vac can (and do) call themselves "Duct Cleaners". If you have checked around on pricing for duct cleaning, this will explain the huge differences in price between two companies.
- We have two guarantees. One is that the duct work in your home will be cleaned. Two, you will be satisfied it is. That is a money back guarantee.
We feel it is very important that you make an informed decision on who will clean your duct work. Again, the state of Oklahoma does not require anyone to have a license to do this work. Therefore it is up to you as the consumer to know all the facts.
Since the state does not require a company to have a license to do this work, there are some key points that should be asked when considering getting your home cleaned:
What kind of equipment do they use to clean duct work? Do they have a truck mounted machine, or just a glorified wet vac? Do they use chemicals to "seal" the dust and debris to the walls of your duct work?
This is how Oklahoma Duct Cleaning cleans a typical home:
- The very first thing we do is introduce ourselves and asked to be shown through the home so that we can totally survey what your home’s specific needs are. For example, we take into consideration flooring and what measures we might need to address to insure that our procedure will not cause any problems. Our basic philosophy about coming into someone else’s home, is that we treat it as we would want our homes to be treated.
- We locate all of the ductwork as well as where the furnace (s) are.
- We then move our truck to the most appropriate place to have closest access to the furnace.
- Once our truck is in place, we go to the furnace and get access to both the return and supply plenums. As well as go inside the home to each vent and cover them.
- As soon as we have access to both the plenums, we “tie in” our 8 inch (in diameter) hose to one of the two plenums.
- We then start our machine which will pull a vacuum on whichever side we are working on, supply or return.
- Once the vacuum is created in the ductwork, we take our high pressure air hose to the furthest vent from the furnace and use what we call our “skipper hose” to run down through the ductwork. The skipper hose is a transparent hose that on the end of it has is the actual “skipper”. This device is a little bit smaller then a golf ball and has a bullet type shape. It has holes machined into it that when air is pushed through the hose, it propels itself down through the ductwork as well as scrapes anything off the walls of the ducts. Of course with a vacuum that is pulling 15,000 to 17,000 CFM anything that is being stirred up it is being pulled out to our truck. Once we are done with that duct, we move to the next closest duct to the furnace until we cover all of the ductwork in the house.
- We then make sure we have cleaned both of the plenums of the system.
- Once the ductwork is completely cleaned, we then focus on the furnace. We clean the blower housing, motor and the blower itself. Then we clean the heat exchanger of the furnace. Then we clean the evaporator coil.
- Once all of the cleaning is done, our technicians are trained to identify any chemical treatment that might be needed. If there is a mold or mildew issue, then we use our Microban treatment. If there are other issues such as odor then we have the chemicals to treat that as well.
- After everything is cleaned and the appropriate chemicals are used, we then start the process of putting everything back together and cleaning up.
- After everything is put back together we then run the appropriate cycle for whatever season it is. If its winter, we make sure the furnace turns on and heats and cycles back off. If it is summer time then we do the same, making sure that the home cools and cycles off again.
- Once we are sure the system (s) we have been working on are in good working order, we make a final walk through the home to make sure we didn’t leave anything of ours as well as make sure your home is as clean as it was before we got there.
Note that the above is a “typical” home. This is a brief description of how we go about cleaning. The general idea is that we are going to be pulling 15,000 CFM to 17,000 CFM of vacuum through your ductwork, while at the same time running our skipper line through the duct. With the velocity of air we are going to be moving through your ductwork there is no better way to get the ductwork cleaned. If you have any questions or would like to schedule your home to be cleaned feel free to call us at 752-1608.
Our machine is a truck mounted vacuum with a 65 Horsepower gasoline engine that pulls 15,000 CFM vacuum. Our machine also has an air compressor that produces 165 P.S.I. of air pressure.
