Air Duct Cleaning (offered in Kansas only)

Air Duct Cleaning

Indoor air pollution is increasingly affecting homes and commercial buildings. Air most frequently becomes contaminated when bacteria, fungi, mildew, dust, and chemical compounds are trapped inside air handling systems. Having your duct system professionally cleaned is a vital part of improving the indoor air quality in your home or office. At All-Pro Services our specialists use state-of-the-art equipment to remove the sources of contamination in your air handling system, furnace, air ducts, and vents.

Our air duct cleaning process involves many steps and sophisticated equipment. Please link on one of the links below for more detailed information. You will see for yourself that we have the absolute best, state of the art cleaning equipment, plus our trained technicians take pride in their work, allowing us to guarantee the most thorough cleaning possible.

Air duct cleaning should be looked at as an investment , not an inexpensive, quick, in and out, get it done and over with job. Don't throw your hard earned dollars away on an inadequate job. If you are financially unable to have your duct system cleaned properly, wait and budget to have the job done at a later date. The health of you and your family (or workers and co-workers) should be the deciding factor. It's your choice as to what kind of cleaning you will allow in your home or place of business.

Self Contained Truck
To clean air duct systems, we use a self contained truck loaded with specialized equipment.

Our huge truck mounted unit is FAR advanced and superior to portable, electric or roll-in units. It includes:

  • Rectangular and round manual and power brushes
  • Power tools
  • Pressure washer
  • Zone bags
  • 65 hp Hi Range Vac plus trailer that holds up to 400 feet of 10 inch vacuum hose.

The 1700 lb, 65 hp dirt and dust collecting "monster" is the top of the line model, boasting the highest static pressure rating of any vacuum designed for duct cleaning.

Detailed view

This machine has enough high velocity vacuum power to actually REMOVE dirt and debris from within the ventilation ducts, depositing it into 43 filter bags and/or collection chamber.

  • The exclusive fan impeller allows the right balance of air volume flow rate and static pressure drop across the filter area - permitting only clean, dust-free air to be discharged.
  • More vacuum energy is available, as much as 4 times the conveying distance of conventional vacuums.
  • Note: Our Power-Vac is identical to this, except ours is red.

Brush System & "Duct Ball and Snake"

The Mini-Cobra power brush system
The Mini-Cobra is a mechanical device that turns up to 750 revolutions/minute and is the top of the line tool for boot and branch cleaning.
