Negative Air Duct Cleaning to Breathe Better [Photo Contest]


The photo contest winner for this issue is Jared Lusk of Servpro of Rexburg/Rigby in Sugar City, Idaho for his negative air duct cleaning to help a customer breathe better. His company will receive a Visa gift card worth $250.

The customer had an oil furnace that created a puff back into their home, which filled with smoke and soot throughout. We were called in to mitigate and found the duct work had taken a heavy hit, with the dust in the duct work collecting the soot and ash. By taking a portable duct cleaning system, creating negative air, and sealing all registers, we were able to run a flex bristle brush through, cleaning all sections of the HVAC unit. This alone let the homeowner breathe better and allowed the cleaning process to run smoother.

For an opportunity to win a gift card worth $250, send your images and a brief 100-word description on how you obtained your results to Amanda Hosey, managing editor, at [email protected], or submit via Facebook Messenger at Contest rules available by request.

The “push/pull” or “negative air” duct cleaning method is important in settings like commercial locations with bigger ducts or areas with heavy debris. Meanwhile, using contact cleaning in which you disturb the debris and collect it at the same point can be effective in settings with light debris.
