According to the Environmental Protective Agency (EPA), the air in our homes have been found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. This is cause for concern, as more than 90% of our lives are spent indoors!
The air we breathe has a direct affect on our health. Immediate reactions may be presented by way of allergies or asthma.
You can avoid health problems connected to dirty ducts by regularly cleaning ducts and addressing your indoor air quality. SuperNoVA is here to guide you through the process. We structure services to meet your specific needs.
Regular air duct cleaning not only removes germs, flaked skin cells, pet dander & debris, but also reduces odors, lowers your heating & air conditioning bills, and extends the life of your HVAC system.

Tools & Techniques
Our advance duct cleaning equipment help us deliver the cleaning results we want and you deserve.
Our efficient HEPA vacuum is necessary for a thorough duct-cleaning job. This large portable HEPA filter-equipped vacuum cleaner unit connects directly to the duct, maintaining the section being cleaned under a negative-air pressure, preventing the release of contaminants into your home while collecting all debris loosened in the duct cleaning process.
Simply putting a section of duct under negative pressure is not sufficient to clean the duct. Agitation of the contaminants is required to loosen debris and send it into the airstream created by the negative-air machine. We use a portable air compressor and 'skipper nozzles' as well as a Rotary Brush cleaning system to further dislodge debris. The cleaning brush, which is connected to a flexible, motor-driven shaft, gives us the ability to maneuver through and remove debris from every bend in the ducts themselves.
We are proud of our work and provide visual proof of your duct system upon request.
Everyone should breathe clean and fresh indoor air. If you notice dust clinging to the vent covers, call SuperNoVA and we will do what we do best; purify your indoor air.
