From Duct Cleaning to an Unrivaled Scope of Services

Action Duct was founded over 46 years ago as a family business by Dan and Betty Stradford. Our integrity, cleaning results and fair pricing have enabled us to grow into a bustling enterprise servicing all of California and the Western US.

Having originated as a company providing duct cleaning services in 1978 and, listening to the continually-growing demands of our valued customers, Action Duct has diversified into an industry leader, offering a broad spectrum of industrial, commercial, and residential cleaning services and solutions critical to maintaining a safe, healthy and productive environment for company production cycles, the inner office, and the home.

Our clients value the convenience and peace of mind that come from working with us, given our vast breadth of services, decades of experience, remarkable safety record, and dedication to customer satisfaction..


We provide professional duct cleaning and a vast variety of other services for an extensive customer base of Fortune 500 corporations, industrial facilities, schools, government agencies and buildings, hospitals, hotels, celebrity homes, and possibly your next door neighbor.

Valued Partnerships

We work closely with contractors, facility, plant managers and engineers to aggressively deliver results on your toughest cleaning jobs. Whether it is a custom situation that no other company can handle or a conventional system cleaning, we have the expertise to plan and provide the right cleaning strategy to effectively work with your time-sensitive schedules and production cycles. Action Duct Cleaning strives to take facility maintenance burdens off your plate and streamline the process in order for you to focus on your core business.

Giving Back

The Action Duct team is passionate about helping people with mental health issues and removing the stigmas associated with these issues. CEO Dan Stradford founded Safe Harbor, a non-profit for education on non-drug treatments in mental health.

This California 501(c)(3) has the largest website in the world dedicated to providing resources for alternative mental health treatments. Stradford’s passion for this field of interest was ignited by his father’s personal journey through traditional treatments.
