Here at Super Value, we are experts at taking care of your entire duct system. We have won awards for our duct cleaning. We use controlled extraction to make sure we do the best job possible of getting the dirt out of your duct system, and not just into some hidden nook and cranny.
We use a powerful air compressor, whipper lines, skipper balls, and an industrial vacuum to remove dirt, debris, and anything else we can get out of your main ducts. This leaves you with a clean, healthy duct system. The whipper lines begin by hitting the inside of your duct system, dislodging the dirt and debris from the main ducts, while being flexible and able to work without ripping apart, and breaking cables in your duct system. After the whipper lines dislodge the majority of dirt and debris, Skipper Balls are sent into the duct system to push around and guide remaining dirt and debris into our large vacuum, leaving your home, and not being pushed into an inaccessible corner.
Vents are appropriately sealed during the process of cleaning, to ensure that there is no blow back into your home. Each vent is individually cleaned out using an additional vacuum, and sanitized to make sure your home smells clean and fresh.
It is recommended that ducts be cleaned every 1-3 years. This is due to the natural accumulation of dust in the home and cannot be avoided, or prolonged even with excellent cleaning of your home. However, there are reasons that it should be done sooner:
- Smokers in the household.
- Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander.
- Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system.
- Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the number of indoor air pollutants in the home’s HVAC system.
- After home renovations or remodeling.
- Prior to occupancy of a new home.

We want you to understand your duct system because we pride ourselves on knowing and understanding your duct system.
What is a Main Duct?
A Main Duct simply is a straight piece of ductwork, connecting directly to the furnace. We can take care of Main Ducts whether they are hot or cold runs with no problem.
What is a Vent?
A Vent is upstairs in your home, where air flows into your rooms. Vents, whether hot or cold, are individually cleaned.
We understand your duct system. We also understand that every home is unique, and we want you to understand your duct system too. Ask our technicians about your duct system and if your home has standard duct features, or whether it has any of the following:
What is a Sealed Joist?
A sealed joist is similar to a main duct, except instead of being completely made of sheet metal, it is partially bounded by the joists in your home.
What is a Supply Duct?
Supply ducts are smaller, often circular tubes that supply air to vents and other places in your home. These are great places for dirt to collect, and often cannot be accessed with large brushes.
What is Duct Fogging or Disinfectant?
We can apply antimicrobial chemicals to the interior surface of the air ducts. This product treats microbial contamination such as fungi (mold), viruses or bacteria over a 7 day period. Before we apply our disinfectant, we must thoroughly clean the duct system. The use of antimicrobial chemicals is an additional service that is not part of a standard duct cleaning package.
