I've used this service 2 times to clean air vents because I have allergies and I don't want dust circulating around my house. Joe also cleaned my chimney and dryer vent (which is a HUGE fire hazard, so everyone should get that done from time to time). He even replaced my filters at no additional charge.

Air Duct Cleaning

Recommended every 3-5 years

Don't remember the last time you cleaned your air ducts? Our air duct cleaning expertise will help you breathe higher quality air and enjoy improved health. Regular cleaning of air ducts is important to breathe in clean air, and to prevent allergies and other respiratory problems. We cover all your furniture during our cleaning process and wear shoe covers upon request.

Our 6-Step Air Duct Cleaning Process:


Inspection of in-ground or overhead ducts to make sure all ducts are connected and there is no existing damage to them.


We remove each vent register and reverse air pressure clean every duct with a vacuum that has a HEPA filter. This process is designed to loosen and extract all dirt, dust mites, pet dander, hair, or whatever else may have built-up in the ducts over time.


We clean each vent register, either by washing or vacuuming depending on how dirty they are.


Perform light cleaning of furnace by vacuuming motor box and blowing compressed air to loosen and extract debris on blades. Wipe down surface area of furnace with simple green product.


Clean each intake vent and replace the filters with a standard cut to fit mesh filter.


Finally, we blow sanitation, Decon 30, a botanical (plant based / natural) product through the system to help combat the future growth of mold and bacteria. This improves your overall air quality.

At Absolute Duct & Chimney Inc, we also provide duct lining services. We provide complete air duct restoration that makes your damaged ductwork better than new and will save thousands of dollars over the cost of an overhead conversion. Our patented process and proprietary liner material will restore your ductwork in as little as one day.

Absolute just came out to inspect my fireplace. I had some small cracks on the back wall I was worried about. They fixed the cracks for me with some epoxy and made it look like new! They also cleaned the chimney and gave it a clean bill of health. They showed up on time, were clean, and I loved their scheduling system that sent me text reminders of our appointment and when the tech was on their way. Really great company! I highly recommend!

Easy to schedule and very clear upfront about scope of work and pricing. Called to see if they could come early. Very polite staff who clearly informed me of progress and results. Chimney only needed inspection so didn’t charge for cleaning. Dryer vent was way overdue and they did a great job. Finally everything was left clean and payment a breeze.
