Compressed air was then blown through the system and all debris was captured in a Nikro 5000cfm HEPA negative air machine. Outside condenser unit cleaned and in good working order. Dryer vent flex hose was removed, cleaned and shortened to enhance efficiency. Single outside condenser unit inspected and cleaned. No biological growth to be reported inside the systems. The units had humidity and moisture levels well within accepted tolerances. See photo slide-deck.
