Our Air Duct Cleaning Process-
Cleaning air ducts correctly is a lot of work, but it is worth it because if duct cleaning isn't done right, it will provide little to no benefit to you, your home, or your HVAC system. Our duct cleaning protocols are based on National Air Duct Cleaning Association Standards to ensure that regardless of if you are looking to reduce allergens or dust in the home, looking to gain some efficiency from your HVAC system, or just want clean ductwork, we deliver thorough duct cleaning services each and every time.
Pre-clean duct inspection & property protection- Duct cleaning requires entry to just about every room in the home by our technicians, hoses and other equipment. During the initial walk through, our technicians will take precautions to protect the work area.
We turn the duct system into a vortex- Each register in the home will be sealed off to allow our state-of-the-art HEPA-filtered duct cleaning equipment to put your system into a negative pressure environment.
Hook up the eye of the tornado- The engine behind a high-quality duct cleaning job is the HEPA-filtered duct contamination abatement equipment we use to draw in and trap all the particulates we dislodge from your ductwork. Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to get our 8-inch or 12-inch suction hoses connected to the heart of your system to deliver the most powerful results.
Gunk dislodgement- Once we have the duct system under negative pressure, essentially turning the duct system into a wind tunnel back to our vacuum, our certified technicians will use high pressure air, air tools, brushes, and/or a combination of the mentioned to agitate and scrub the walls of the duct system. Don't be alarmed! This process is loud because in order to get ductwork clean, we need to dislodge years of dust, dirt, and grime build up. Our agitation process knocks all of the dust and debris that is able to be dislodged and throws it into the air stream to be sucked up by our vacuum and trapped in its HEPA filtration system.
Air duct deodorizer- While we have your duct system in a tornado, we deploy an EPA registered deodorizer into the duct system. This potion inhibits the growth of odor causing organisms, as well as those organisms associated with mold, mildew and bacterial growth in the air and HVAC system.
Satisfaction check & tidy up- We take before and after pictures and invite our clients to shadow our certified duct cleaning technicians throughout the process to ensure their complete satisfaction. Once our clients are 100% satisfied with the air duct cleaning, we will pack up our equipment and clean up our work areas to a "better than we found it" status.
Air Duct Cleaning Cost
The size of your home determines the size of your furnace and HVAC system. Big house = big furnace. Big furnace = lots of vents. Lots of vents = time and money. Small house = small furnace. Small furnace = just a few air ducts. Just a few air ducts = less time and less money.
The size of your HVAC matters in determining the true total cost of duct cleaning.
If your home and HVAC system is average sized, your duct cleaning could be less than $750. Call 262-367-3266 for a free over-the-phone duct cleaning quote. If you have your furnace's model number, that will guarantee a locked in, won't change no matter what, price quote.

Air Filtration in your Home
There are different levels of filtration that can be applied to your home depending on the problems that you are looking to address. A basic furnace filter is only designed to protect your furnace from large objects such as golf balls or other objects that accidentally end up in heat vents, it isn't meant to actually "clean" your air.
Here are some of the many air-cleaning options:
A High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter (HEPA Filter) does exactly what the name implies: It filters all the little particles that are circulating in your home so that you and your loved ones aren't repeatedly exposed to them. Keeping your air clean helps everyone in the house, but especially those in the family who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. Installing a HEPA filter can be a quick and easy process and can provide a healthier, cleaner environment for you and your family.
UV filters work on purifying the air that circulates through your HVAC system. The UV light helps to destroy things that can't be caught in a physical filter, such as gases, odors and some biological elements such as mold and bacteria.

Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
"Hot and Cold" are usually the first words that come to mind when talking about your home's HVAC system. Two words that don't come to mind, but should are "Damp and Dry." In an overly damp environment, bacteria, mold, dust mites and germs are able to multiply quickly and exponentially. On the flip side, an overly dry environment makes your skin more susceptible to bacteria, mold, dust mites and germs entering or harming your body.
This is where a whole-house humidification and dehumidification system comes in. This system allows you to keep your house at optimal humidity levels, which is generally between 35% to 45% relative humidity.
Not all air duct-cleaning companies are the same
Be cautious of fly-by-night, and duct cleaning only companies. Although they may do a decent job of vacuuming your duct system, only a certified HVAC Service tech is qualified to work on the whole system. At Polar Express, all duct cleaning is performed by our experienced and certified HVAC Service technicians.
