The definition of source removal duct cleaning using the patented Abatement Technologies’ HEPA-AIRE cleaning process is as follows:
- Clean the air conveyance system using Abatement’s AIRE-SWEEP® Compressed Air Tools to dislodge dirt and other contaminants from the ductwork and other HVAC components.
- Use a powerful Abatement HEPA-AIRE, HEPA-filtered Portable Power Vacuum to place the section of the duct system being cleaned under negative pressure, pull dislodged contaminants out of the duct system and capture them.
A conventional HVAC duct system consists of a supply system of ducts to carry heated or cooled air from the furnace/air conditioner (air handler) to various parts of the home or building, and a return duct system to bring fresh air back to the air handler to be heated or cooled again. The supply network consists of main ducts, which carry air to smaller branch runs, which in turn carry air to the desired locations. The return network works in reverse.
