Richard Papaleo – President, Air-Care

Air-Care was started in 1979 by Richard Papaleo. One of the premier and innovative thinkers in this industry, Richard revolutionized air duct cleaning by creating portable, powerful, electric, and affordable equipment that could be used to efficiently and effectively clean both residential and commercial air systems. We have grown from a small startup to the international authority on air duct cleaning equipment and services. Our 30,000 square foot facility houses our manufacturing and training facility. We produce electrostatic air filters and air duct cleaning equipment from this facility, as well as provide training on a regular basis. It is also the home base for our service department, which is the leading commercial air duct cleaner in Las Vegas

Our Mission

Our mission is to help our customers develop a successful and profitable service business supporting their needs with quality equipment at a fair price, supply them with knowledge about the indoor air quality industry and offer them continuous support in a long-term relationship. Our products make this possible. In addition to our duct cleaning equipment, we also have tools to help you build your business; such as permanent electrostatic air filters and UV air purification systems. We are partners, not just a manufacturer of the equipment.
