When Oklahoma Duct Cleaning was started, our focus was on providing duct cleaning services and products like filters and return air filter grilles. Our main focus is still on air duct cleaning and still offers other products. But after a couple of years we started to learn more about how some homes were built with the ductwork being under the slab. We found this out because a lot of homes built between 1975 until the early 1990’s was standard to use a mix of PVC pipe and metal fittings, boot boxes and plenums (the air distribution box that all of the ductwork ties into). It took one job for us to figure out really quick that we cannot clean a breeched system. Meaning, if the metal has rusted through, our vacuum is so strong that we would cause more damage than do anyone any good. After having to just walking away from these types of jobs, we learned how to fix any rusted metal under the slab. These days there are companies that claim to “Coat” the ductwork. We can assure you of something: We have thought about every way possible to be able to coat the ductwork to fix it. We still don’t and don’t plan on taking up the practice. There are several reasons why we don’t. Honestly we don’t feel comfortable with the coating material. However, we can fix ANY metal under the slab. It just takes more work. One more point to be made. If anyone says they can water proof your under the slab ductwork, they are not being honest. It is impossible to keep ALL water out of even the best laid, all plastic ductwork under your slab. Beware of companies that make that claim.
Below are some examples of what we are able to do.

- Bootbox Repair
