Duct Cleaning

a properly cleaned air duct system can make your facilities’ HVAC system run more efficiently and create a safer environment for you and your employees.

keep your indoor environment healthy

Air ducts can become clogged with dirt, debris, and other pollutants over time. This build-up of dirt and debris in the air ducts can contaminate the indoor air.

As such, proper air-duct cleaning and inspections are essential for the maintenance of commercial and industrial buildings.

    Duct Cleaning in Action

    Hiring a professional HVAC company that uses state-of-the-art equipment and is trained in the industry’s best practices is vital to ensure your air ducts are adequately cared for.

    A planned schedule for cleaning is also important. With Cox-Powell, your duct cleaning is scheduled routinely based on business needs, limiting the possibility of missing a critical service. 

      Benefits of Duct cleaning


      Build-up of dirt and debris in the air ducts can contaminate the indoor air. Contaminants can cause employees to decline productivity and lead to health concerns like allergy flares, respiratory issues, and other illnesses. 

      When technicians remove the build-up, and indoor air quality will improve. A cleaning schedule is significant in commercial buildings where many people work in the same space. 


      Clogged air ducts cause the HVAC system to work harder to circulate the air. This system strain leads to increased energy consumption.

      Removing debris from the air ducts lightens the load on the amount of material that passes through the filters. As a result, you will need to change your air filters less often. Energy savings from a properly functioning HVAC system can be significant in commercial and industrial spaces.


        Proper air-duct cleaning extends the life of an HVAC system. When clogged air ducts force the HVAC system to work harder than necessary, wear and tear will occur.

        This will eventually lead to breakdowns and costly repairs. Regular air duct inspection and cleaning reduces the workload on the HVAC system and drastically reduces the need for repairs and downtime. 


        Insects or rodents may find their way into the air ducts and find nesting areas. Odor is trapped and passed through the system when there is build-up in your air ducts.  This is because when there is build-up in the vents, particles and odors have a high chance of getting recirculated in the air.

        Cleaning the air ducts helps foster a hygienic environment that is more pleasant and comfortable for employees and occupants. Air duct cleaning is critical in hospitals where cleanliness and hygiene are crucial for patient health.

        Building owners and facility managers should ensure that their air ducts are inspected and cleaned regularly to obtain the advantages of improved air quality. 

        Sample Projects


        Cleaning of ten production areas. All cleaning was performed using a particulate containment system with a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtered duct cleaning vacuum.

        The cleaning included supply and return air ductwork and the air handler’s interior, associated coils, drain pans, fan sections, registers, and grilles.


        We performed a HEPA filtration duct cleaning at the Visitor Center and various Historic Sites. The historic nature of the restored sites made the work unusually critical.

        “Exceptional is not a stretch to describe your service and team. You are true to your word and philosophy. It shows in the people I have interacted with that work for you. Today’s facility management is so much about partnering with service providers. Thank you for all that you and your company provide to ours.”

        Be proactive and prepared

        With preventative service in mind, it is important to have full working knowledge of your air quality.

        Air duct cleaning improves indoor air quality, saves energy costs, extends the life of your HVAC system, and creates a clean space for any building occupants.
