HVAC system care and duct cleaning. One air handler unit cleaned. Supply and Return main trunks and associated ductwork and registers were mechanically cleaned with rotating brushes (whips). Compressed air was then blown through the system and all debris was captured in a Nikro 5000cfm HEPA negative air machine. A significant amount of debris was found in the return vents, main trunk and return plenum. Several return vents were sealed with foil tape to prevent air escape. No biological growth to be reported inside the system. The unit had humidity and moisture levels well within accepted tolerances. See photo slide-deck.
