Ventilation duct cleaning
Residential and commercial ventilation duct cleaning
Since June of 1984, Nettoyeur de la Cité has been a leader in ventilation duct cleaning throughout Quebec. We’re very proud of the fact that we’ve been the recipients of the Consumers’ Choice Award in the Ventilation Duct Cleaning category for several years now. We can offer you the best ventilation duct cleaning service at an affordable, competitive price. Our technicians are very attentive to detail and take pride in a job well done. It would be their pleasure to take the time to explain everything to you in detail and show you all of the work they’ve done. You’re sure to be impressed with the way they clean your air ducts.
Here are 10 times when you shouldn’t hesitate to opt for a full deep-cleaning of your air ducts:
- When you notice a visible accumulation of dirt, dust and debris inside the floor grilles or air vents
- Before you move into a newly constructed home
- After you’ve had interior renovations
- When you or members of your family smoke inside the home
- When you have domestic animals that shed a significant amount of fur
- When you or members of your family suffer from asthma or allergies
- After you’ve been through a fire, flood or other disaster that has caused smoke or water damage
- When you detect an odor of dampness, mold or mildew coming from the ventilation system or the inside of your home
- When you frequently experience a burning sensation in your nose or eyes, a dry throat or nausea while inside your home
- When you observe an excessive accumulation of dust on your furniture and floors
Whether you’re the owner of a single-family home, a duplex, a townhouse or a mobile home, you should be aware that the indoor air quality at your residence can have a significant impact on your health, your comfort and your well-being. To ensure that your air ducts provide a healthy indoor environment all year round, it’s essential to have your ventilation ducts deep-cleaned and serviced regularly.
Since June of 1984, Nettoyeur de la Cité has been offering qualified ventilation duct cleaning services during which each and every component is sanitized:
- Air outlets and returns
- Air vents
- Wall-mounted air conditioners
- Air exchangers
- Range hoods
- Bathroom fans
- Dryer vents
Our specialists will first perform a detailed inspection of your ducts before using our non-toxic products to disinfect and exterminate any microorganisms that may be proliferating in your HVAC system. It’s important to us to safeguard both your health and that of the environment!
Air exchanger cleaning
To ensure the quality of the air you breathe, it’s necessary to service and clean your air exchanger periodically. A good cleaning will get rid of all of the accumulated dirt, dust and other allergens. It will also help control humidity levels in your home and eliminate the foul odors associated with mold and mildew. It’s recommended that you have your air exchanger cleaned every three years.
Dryer vent cleaning
Over time, lint builds up inside your dryer vent, partially blocking the airflow. As a result, your dryer doesn’t work nearly as efficiently as it should. The accumulated lint can also represent a serious fire hazard. A good cleaning is necessary at least every three years and possibly more often depending on how much you use your dryer.
Commercial ventilation duct cleaning
A good commercial ventilation duct cleaning is necessary in order to improve the air quality in your workplace. Otherwise, over the years, you’ll be exposed to all kinds of allergens that have become suspended in the air you breathe. In addition to safeguarding the health of your employees and clients, a good cleaning will help lower your electricity bills. The goal of commercial ventilation duct cleaning is to eliminate all of the dust, allergens and other contaminants found inside your air ducts.
How often should ventilation ducts be cleaned?
To decontaminate your home and reduce your exposure to common pollutants stemming from your fireplace, kitchen, pets and renovation work, among other things, Nettoyeur de la Cité strongly suggests having your ventilation ducts cleaned every five years. However, there are a few exceptional cases in which you must clean your ducts as soon as possible:
- After purchasing a home (whether new or previously owned)
- After having renovations
- After doing interior painting
- After replacing your heating unit
- After suffering a fire
Consequences of a dirty ventilation system
Ventilation ducts are like the lungs of your home: if they’re clogged with dirt, debris and pollutants, your home won’t be able to breathe the way it should, and a number of problems can arise:
- Excessive condensation or frost on the windows
- Damp spots, mold and mildew on the walls and ceilings and inside the closets
- Peeling paint
- Persistent or unusual odors
- Eye, nose and throat irritation
In extreme cases, serious lung infections like pneumonia and Legionnaires’ disease can occur. So be careful!
Our ventilation duct cleaning method
Our technicians follow a rigorous protocol when cleaning your air ducts in order to guarantee you the very best cleaning service in the industry. After performing a comprehensive inspection of your equipment, the technician will apply an adhesive film to all of the ventilation grilles. This is to prevent dust from being released into the air while your ventilation ducts are being cleaned. As of that moment, your entire system will be under negative pressure and must remain so until the cleaning procedure has been completed. This will ensure that your ducts are left in impeccable condition. After sealing off the grilles, we will clean your air ducts using a pulsion, suction and friction process. Our technicians will make small openings in your ventilation unit to clean it. They’ll close these openings once they’ve completed the work. Next, they’ll fumigate your ducts with an antibacterial treatment at no additional cost. It’s a natural thyme-based product, so it won’t harm you or the environment.
Ventilation duct cleaning after a disaster
If you’ve been the victim of a minor or major fire or flood, it’s imperative that you have your ventilation ducts cleaned in order to eliminate the damage caused by smoke, water and mildew at its source. In these situations, Nettoyeur de la Cité is better equipped than any other company to inspect and sanitize your ducts.

Air duct cleaning
When we talk about air duct cleaning, we’re referring to all of the vents that circulate the air from your heat pump, furnace or other HVAC equipment. Air ducts that aren’t clean will not only jeopardize the efficiency of your system but also expel dust into the air you breathe. We recommend having your air ducts cleaned every three to five years or more often, if necessary, especially if your particular situation requires them to be completely free of all particles.
We strongly recommend that you have us clean your bathroom vents and dryer vents at the same time we clean your ventilation ducts so we can remove all of the lint that has accumulated over the years. This build-up can hinder the performance of your equipment, in addition to increasing the risk of a fire.
We already have an established reputation in the ventilation duct cleaning business. We offer premium-quality service that meets the very highest standards of the industry. Best of all, our prices are beyond competitive. You should be aware that we also specialize in carpet cleaning, furniture cleaning and spring cleaning services.
