A Step-By-Step Guide to Modern Power Vac Duct Cleaning

People often ask us what we do and how we do it. First, we begin with the 2-step HI-TECH™ duct cleaning procedure.


Using our powerful suction system, the technician will brush the inside walls, tops and bottoms of your ducts, removing all caked-on dirt and dust.

Step 2: HI-TECH Power Whip

After your ducts have been brushed, our technician uses a rotary whip that snakes its way from your register to the main line, discharging compressed air in a 360º pattern. This ensures that even the smallest dust particles are removed from the duct. This rotary whip is the only device that will clean the damper and duct transition deep inside the duct system.

Other Steps in the Cleaning Process

The main lines of the system are cleaned with a large rectangular rotary brush and the reverse skipper, which discharges high-pressure air in a 360º pattern. This loosens the dirt and debris in the main lines so that it can then be vacuumed up.

The furnace, chimney, and all combustion components are cleaned.

The heat exchanger is visually inspected for stress cracks and carbon monoxide leaks.

The fan and motor are cleaned and lubricated; the humidifier is inspected; and a multi-point system check is performed.

If the system has air conditioning, Modern Power Vac’s trained technicians carefully clean both sides of the coil with high-pressure air. If required, a hot water wash and chemical bath is also performed. Some companies simply bypass the coil without cleaning it. But did you know that a 1/16” buildup of dirt on a coil can reduce efficiency by up to 21%?

Access Clean-Out Points

Access into the duct system is required for:

  • Brushing and compressed air cleaning of the main lines
  • Separating the duct system into cleaning zones
  • Isolating and protecting sensitive furnace components
  • Cleaning the top and bottom of the air conditioning coil

Our technician will expertly cut any necessary access clean out openings into your duct system. After completing the duct cleaning and inspection, the technician will seal the duct system with removable Caplugs brand closures or removable metal access cover plates.

Expected Time Commitment

Our HI-TECH method takes 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete the average 1200 square foot home. Larger homes will, of course, take more time.

Why Brush Your Air Ducts?

Brushing improves cleaning quality by removing the dirt, debris, odours and other contaminants that air washing alone can leave behind.
