Breathe Clean

Ductless Mini Split Heat Pump Cleaning

North America's First Dedicated Ductless Mini Split
Heat Pump Cleaning Company

Breathe Clean is the first company in North America solely dedicated to the cleaning and sanitizing of Ductless Mini Split Heat Pumps. Like many new products the primary focus when entering the market is sales and installation. Mini Splits are no different and their comfort and energy saving qualities are impressive. Mini Splits were first widely available in Asia,Europe, New Zealand and Australia. An instant success, contractors successfully installed thousands of units. During this time of energy efficient building a new phenomenon, Sick Building Syndrome, came to public attention. Builder's and medical professional's started to recognize increases in asthma, allergies and other medical conditions related to indoor air quality. Both residential and commercial buildings were affected. The problem was related to the recycling of indoor air through heating and ventilation systems


Our Story

Mini Split Heat Pumps heat and cool recycled air. This air can be contaminated with microbia like mold and fungus as well as dust and other environmental irritants. During operation Mini Splits condensate moisture. The presence of this moisture behind the cover in a warm, dark environment creates the perfect condition for the growth of mold and fungi. These microbials, which grow in the coils and condensation tray, are then blown into the indoor envelope. Many mini split filters do not adequately remove these fine microbials. Even when they do they do not stop the growth of mold and fungus. These environmental irritants can not be properly cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth or vacuuming. They are found deep in the coils where a cloth can't reach and vacuuming is ineffective in removing these sticky deposits. Condensate trays, drains and blower fans are breeding grounds were water can collect and bacterial growth can occur. Home owners can not reach these areas to clean effectively.

An Idea Is Born

We identified the problem then we created the solution. Breathe Clean is a  professional cleaning system that addresses the problem of dirty, inefficient Mini Split Heat Pumps.

What's In My Heat Pump ?


Hi, we purchased 2 Lenox single-zone Mini-Split Heat Pumps 4 years ago.  The only maintenance we have had done during this time is the cleaning of the filters every month by ourselves and have had no problems with them.  Recently we noticed some black spots inside one of the units and after some  investigation discovered that it was mould.  We were under the impression that these units were maintenance free after installation.  The public needs to be educated and made aware that a regular cleaning of these units is a must if you don’t want to be inhaling dirty air with mould in it.  You also have to consider the efficiency of the units and the cost of operating these units if they are not cleaned by a professional on a regular basis, every year or two I am told.

After getting three quotes, checking with the BBB and speaking to some people that sell these units we decided that Breathe-Clean looked to be our best choice.  We made the right decision.  The price was reasonable, the work done was professional and the serviceman was very informative answering all questions without hesitation and in  a friendly manner.  The colour of the water that was in the bucket after the cleaning shocked us, it was black and dirty.  We will be using Breathe-clean again as needed and also referring them to our friends and associates.

Very satisfied with the service, professionalism, punctuality and the friendliness of Tom, your service representative, he was very helpful and provided the service that we were told your company provided.

Thank you.
