Very simple, all you need is a camera.

Do the same for the air intake grills (located on the walls) and you will have an idea on the condition of your duct work. If you are still unsure, please contact us to schedule a video inspection.

Unfortunately we do not. Any gas or electrical components are best left to licenced oil and gas technicians.
Is there anything I need to do prior to my appointment?
Yes. Please ensure furnace area is clear of items to allow sufficient work space for our machines, tools and technicians to work around.
Do you supply air filters
We do not carry or sell any air filters due to the fact that each home has different sizes. We ask instead that you have a new one on hand to be installed after the cleaning is complete.
What are drywall access panels and why do you charge?
Some homes have finished basements and have covered all the trunks with drywall. In order to ensure we remove all contaminants we need to access the trunks. An access point will need to be made in to the ceiling drywall in order to cut a hole in the duct work. The cost covers the plastic access cover to be placed over the access panel and the time it takes to find studs, potential electrical wires, and carefully making the access panel.
