Our cleaning process cleans the heating and cooling components of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. These components include supply and return air ducts, heating and cooling coils, heat exchangers, grills and diffusers, fan motor housings, condensation drain pans, and air handling unit housings. Our professional cleaning team uses specialized tools on the components to dislodge any dirt and debris, which is removed with an industrial grade, high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) vacuum.
Cleaning dirty cooling coils, fans, and heat exchangers can improve the health of your family; we can reduce the risk of allergies or other adverse health effects by removing contaminants such as mold, dust or pollen that may accumulate in air ducts. A through HVAC and air duct cleaning may also save you money on your heating and cooling bills.

Mold Inspection and Remediation
If an inspection confirms the presence of active mold growth in your residence, SOS Builders professional team can perform a six-step removal process that guarantees the total elimination of the harmful fungus from your property. Here’s what we do:
- Full Damage Assessment –we examine your residence for mold colonies and its spores, using the latest mold detection techniques.
- Water Extraction and Dehumidification – To eliminate the mold growing environment, we remove all water and moisture from the area. We extract unwanted water in your home, and then bring in industrial dehumidifiers to dry the air.
- Damage Containment –We seal off the affected areas with plastic barriers that restrict air and spore movement to prevent any further spread of the mold.
- Content Damage Evaluation – As part of our complete service for eliminating mold damage our technicians will examine clothing, furniture and floor coverings to determine what can be salvaged.
- Disinfection –negative ion technology is used to kill the mold. Our certified technicians eliminate the fungus on surfaces or in the air. This proven technique eradicates the mold but is gentle on your belongings and property.
After the mold demolition has been completed, the experts from SOS Builders thoroughly clean the work area. We use HEPA vacuums to thoroughly clean the area but also go an extra mile with hand wiping to ensure that minimal moisture remains on surfaces.
An experienced supervisor conducts a post-remediation to confirm that the remediation process was completed to our specifications. An additional examination that includes a sensory inspection of the containment area is done by an Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP). The IEP must examine all areas and determine if all visible dust and debris, malodors, and contaminated materials have been removed before signing off on the successful completion of the mold eradication.
