What’s the Difference Between Duct Cleaning & Duct Sealing?

If you came here, it was to learn about the difference of both duct services!

Duct Cleaning

As the name implies, duct cleaning is done via a mechanical device that is inserted into each duct and scrubs the interior of all debris and simultaneously vacuums everything into a canister. Upon completion, many homeowners have the ducts sanitized, especially if there was a mold or mildew problem.

  • Average sealing is 93-97% effective.
  • Improves overall comfort
  • Can reduce energy consumption by 20% or more
