Find out how we are giving back to Vancouver Island with our Clairity Fox Hero Fund.

Founded in 2018 by Neil and Stephanie Ballard, Clairity strives to raise the bar for the air duct cleaning industry on Vancouver Island.

“I have been working in the air duct cleaning industry for over 6 years now. I have always done the best job that I could with the tools, equipment and time that I had to work with. I saw the need for a high quality air duct cleaning service on Vancouver Island. So thats why my wife Stephanie and I have founded Clairity – Clean Air Specialists. Now that we have the industires best tools and equipment we have taken air duct cleaning to the next level by offering advanced cleaning and anti microbial treatments. We also take the time necessary to properly clean your entire system, and that’s why we only clean 2 houses per day.”  – Neil Ballard (Owner/Operator)


What Makes a Hero?

Honesty and Integrity: In an industry that is dark and unregulated, there are many fly by night villains. Clairity brings light to a shady industry with new advanced cleaning methods and expertly trained technicians. We will do battle with dust an allergens in your home and we will always win!

Tool Belt: A Hero is nothing without their tool belt. At Clairity we know that to be the best, we must have the best tools and equipment. Our technicians are armed with a vast arsenal of tools and equipment to eradicate your dust demons!

Charisma: A must have for any super hero. Our technicians are friendly and well trained in offering you first class customer service.

Uniform: A hero is nothing without his uniform. Our technicians may not wear capes, but we will always arrive to your home in full uniform. Jeans and a t-shirt just isn’t our style.

Take a live look into the air ducts during some residential cleanings. Our predator whip annihilates dust and debris!

Years of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, hair, pet dander and skin follicles could be hiding in your air ducts. This greatly reduces the air quality in your home and can cause health problems.

Advanced Cleaning

We maximize suction by using cleaning zones and use the industries most advanced tools to scrub your ducts before compressed air cleaning them. We don’t just “blow and go”. We offer you a level of clean your homes lungs have never seen before.

No Hidden Fees

We offer a flat rate service that is all inclusive. The price we quote you before booking is going to be the price you pay when the job is finished.

No Cheap Equipment

We only use the industries most advanced brushes and agitation devices to ensure your system is fully clear of any contaminants. Our hypervac runs off 220 power, it is the strongest portable system on the market today. Having the right tools really makes a difference.

No Rushed Jobs

How long did your last duct cleaning take? We will never take shortcuts or rush through a job just to get to the next one. A proper air duct cleaning takes time and attention to detail. We only clean 2 houses per day to ensure the job is done properly.


Our name says it all. This industry is much different than an industry like window cleaning. With a window cleaner you’ll know if they did a bad job right away. You are trusting us to do a job, and we take that job seriously. We will explain our process to you and give you a true peace of mind service. We inspect all of our work and your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

Thank you so much for checking the dryer vent and cleaning it. The fire hazard was there and now it is not. Our furnace and ducts are wonderfully clean.

We used Clairity to get our wett inspection done on our wood stove to please our insurance company, Clairity were on time and very thorough, as they were there we also got them to clean our ducts and dryer vent/duct at the same time, I liked how their equipment was portable and didn’t have to have the door left wide open like other companies, we had a great experience with Clairity and would highly recommend them! Neil also cleaned up afterwards very well too! Great job Clairity

Did you know that there are currently no regulations or certification for air duct cleaners in Canada? There is no association for standards and training in Canada, to us this makes no sense at all. We would like to see that change one day, but for now we can only lead by example. We have set our standards for cleaning extremely high and we strive to raise the bar for the industry.

There is a certain level of trust between a customer and an air duct cleaning company. The customer can not see inside their duct system so they trust the company to do the job properly. Our job is to clean and inspect your entire system, therefore we will create more access points to ensure that your system is completely clear of contaminants. We take all steps necessary to keep your ducts under maximum negative pressure during cleaning. That is why we seal off your entire system and create ‘cleaning zones’ by splitting your system into smaller zones for more thorough cleaning.

 Basic compressed air cleaning has become the industry standard on Vancouver Island. While compressed air can do a good job at blowing the dust out of your vents, we are not satisfied with just good. We want to be great, and that’s why we’ve set our standards above what the current industry offers. Our  advanced cleaning with spinning brushes and air whips does a far superior job to just using air on its own. With our complete cleaning package, we can guarantee a full restoration of your entire air handling system.

The Latest in Chimney Sweep Technology

Ever since there have been chimneys, there have been people sweeping them. But times have changed and so has the technology. At Clairity, we arn’t your old fashioned chimney sweeps using an old wire brush. We only use the latest in chimney sweep technology,  snaplok rotary power sweeping. With a variety of different brush heads, cable whips and chain whips we guarantee your chimney will be far cleaner than it would be with an old wire brush. Worried about mess? We have got you covered. We seal off your fireplace and use 2 stages of filtration on our vacuum to ensure that we leave no trace. We specialize in cleaning, so you can have a stress free chimney sweep experience.

Dryer Vent Cleaning – Doing it Right

“I was surprised to find out how many companies are cleaning dryer vents without actually cleaning and inspecting the dryer itself. If a fire is going to start, it starts in your dryer not your vent.” – Neil Ballard (Owner)

Every home has a clothes dryer, but not many people think about the danger they can pose as a potential fire hazard. Each load of laundry you dry creates lint and the lint screen can only do so much to stop it from entering the vent. It is important to have your dryer and vent cleaned and inspected at least every couple of years.

We also offer group discounts on dryer vent cleaning for stratas, condominiums and townhomes. Please call us for a free estimate or to arrange a site visit.

Communities we service: Greater Victoria, Cowichan Valley, Lake Cowichan, Shawnigan Lake, Cobble Hill, Mill Bay, Ladysmith, Crofton, Chemainus, Nanaimo, Nanoose Bay.
