After 24 years in southern California, Action Duct Cleaning Co. is going north for its fifth office.

After 24 years in southern California, Action Duct Cleaning Co. is heading north to Sacramento to open its fifth office.

Considered one of the top duct cleaning companies in California, the Los Angeles-based firm started operations in 1978, then opened offices in Orange County, Riverside, and San Diego.

The company has prospered, even during tough economic times. According to Action Duct President David King, "As with all successful companies, we know we can't rest on yesterday's achievements. Our philosophy has been that good, honest service is always the way to go, and we strive to maintain this with every job that we deliver.

"Opening the fifth location in Sacramento makes Action Duct accessible to the whole state of California, though we have been doing work nationwide for some time now."

A member of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association since that organization's inception, Action Duct has participated in creating the standards that guide the duct cleaning industry today.

"In the last quarter century, we've been through a tremendous variety of business climates in California, from deep recessions to booming prosperity," said King.

"We have been fiscally healthy through it all, despite stock market crashes, Sept. 11, earthquakes, fires, and a few energy crunches. It doesn't take a genius, just sound financial policy and teamwork that focuses on good service."
