A home duct cleaning project can be a real chore, even while using your pressure washer. Preventive maintenance cuts down on the need to do a complete home duct cleaning, and the pressure washer is the perfect tool for that maintenance. Use it to clean the cooling coils and drain pans to prevent mold. Take care when cleaning the coils, use low pressure and keep the spray aimed in the opposite direction of the air flow. Some people use "no rinse" detergents or other additives to clean ducts, coils, and pans. Don't trust the "no rinse" packaging, always give the job a complete rinse with clean water before calling it a day.
