  • Will your service damage my flexible ducts?

    No. We do not use a rotating brush that may damage your flexible ducts.

  • Can duct contamination really make me sick?

    Yes. According to the Florida Division of Environmental Health, when you see indications of what may be mold or have a musty smell in your home,  you may be presented with an unacceptable health risk. These  health officials’ main concerns include allergic illness and potential  for infection from mycotoxins. 

    People with mold allergies may experience a wide range of discomforts from the sniffles, runny nose, red eyes, and sneezing, to shortness of breath, fatigue, fever and /or headaches.  

    According to the Florida Department of Health, the long term presence of indoor mold may eventually be unhealthy for anyone.

  • Will we be safe in the house while you clean?

    Yes!   No harmful chemicals are used. Our product is a mixture of all natural botanical oils which are safe for people, plants, pets, including fish.  There is no need to leave.  

  • If we have you come back every year, do we really need our UV light?

    A UV light can only kill microbes & mold,  etc. where the light shines and it can take one to two hours to kill 99.9% of the mold using the UV light.  UV Lights are helpful in the area of the AC System where the light is shining. However  the air travels  too fast past the UV light to kill the mold, mold spores and other microbes in the air that travel past the UV light and settle and grow in other parts of the Air Ducts. 

  • Should I take action to prepare for the technicians arrival?

    Yes, please remove all items in and around your washer and dryer for dryer vent cleaning. The dryer should be empty of clothing. When doing Air Duct Cleaning, the space below the air supply needs to be clear so ladders & equipment can access the air supply area. If you have an unfriendly pet, please keep the pet away from the technician.

John showed up on time and got right to work cleaning up the ductwork in my house with his all natural system. No more awful smell when I turn on the air conditioner! The air circulating through the house feels fresh and clean now 🙂 Great job!


When I found out about Champion’s natural approach to duct sanitization, I was intrigued and eager to try it. John was on time, professional and thorough, and I am quite pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend Champion Duct Cleaning!


Fantastic service. Mr. Reed and co. were friendly, professional, and helpful. They also got the job done quickly. Highly recommend this service and if I ever need duct cleanings or something similar in the Pinellas area, I will certainly use Champion Duct Cleaning.


Champion cleaned out my A/C ducts using thyme oil that smelled terrific: really fresh. The service rep made sure I knew how to maintain the system and filter the air better for the future, too. Good service, and goodbye to the mildewy smell of Florida summer!


John disinfects the vents with natural essential oils, which kills the mold in the ducts. He was professional, courteous, and effective. I’m very happy with my service and would recommend everyone to disinfect their ducts naturally like this and maintain a healthy home environment.


I hired John at Champion Duct Cleaning to sanitize my air ducts.  He administered the treatment while I was home since he uses an Essential Oil that is non-toxic to clean and sanitize the vents. The next morning when I woke up I did not have my ordinary multiple sneezing symptoms and I feel so much better.


John came the same day I called, and the house smells very clean!


Fast service! Breathe easier in my house. Don’t wake up with stuffy nose. Not expensive. John is very knowledgeable.


This worked really fast and was so easy – I was surprised.   My allergies relieved almost immediately and I have been able to be in my home and be comfortable again.  Thank you John – this was really needed.  I would highly recommend this company!


John Reed was great to work with. Showed up on time, and was very responsive to everything we told him we needed done. We highly recommend him.


John did a very thorough cleaning of my AC ducts and vents with an all natural essential oil–no chemicals! He was very professional and did not leave a mess after his work as many others have a tendency to do. I would recommend John and his services!
