The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) was formed in 1989 as a non-profit association of companies engaged in the cleaning of HVAC systems. Its mission was to promote source removal as the only acceptable method of cleaning and to establish industry standards for the association.
Air Duct Cleaning Standards
Since the EPA does not certify air duct cleaners, consumers are glad to know that the NADCA exists to provide comprehensive information to both consumers and providers. NADCA currently holds the highest standards of service and only certifies those providers with the knowledge to perform professional air duct cleaning.
Air Duct Cleaning Certifications
NADCA also provides the following certifications:
- ASCS Certification: Air System Cleaning Specialists
- CVI Certification: Certified Ventilation Inspectors
- VSMR Certification: Ventilation System Mold Remediators
Air Duct Cleaning Checklists
NADCA also provides consumers and providers with checklists to ensure quality of service. All members are required to perform work in accordance with NADCA Standards. As part of its Quality Assurance Program, NADCA provides information about how to select a qualified contractor along with pre – and post-cleaning checklists to ensure that total system cleaning is performed. Reviewing the checklist is an excellent way to ensure quality of the air duct cleaning.
