Fire Restoration Duct Cleaning

Since our inception, City Duct Cleaning has been very much involved in the restoration of fire and flood damage in homes and businesses in the Greater Toronto Area. The air vents and diffusers in the photos below look like regular dirty vents that you'd see almost everywhere. But these particular ones came from a duct system that was serving an office area that had a recent bad fire.   These vents smelled very bad because of the smoke, and in fact, they were so sooty that we choose to gather them up and bring them back to our office to...Read More

Cleaning of Your Dryer Exhausts

Did you know that dryer fires are one of the most common fires in Ontario? This is because most homeowners don’t realize the amount of lint that comes off of their clothes with every cycle.

Most duct cleaners are not licensed gas technicians, nor are most homeowners.If you've gotten some half-information about how to clean your own gas furnace, then how do you know if you didn't miss something unsafe about your furnace that...Read More

Attic Insulation Removal In Progress

  Besides cleaning air duct systems and furnaces, City Duct also specializes in removing attic insulation. There are many reasons why someone would want to have their attic insulation removed, and those reasons include contamination by animals or rodents, the homeowner has just found out that they're allergic to it, or in this case the homeowner was planning to renovate their attic space. I'm not sure if this insulation was blown in as good as it could have been, to us it didn't really matter because we were there to remove it anyway. There is alot to know about attic insulation,...Read More
