A typical work specification consists of a preliminary site survey to be performed by the Government SBS.  At this point a work specification is developed.  An estimate is formulated utilizing the price schedule agreed to under the basic contract.  At start of work an inspection is performed by the ship, the SBS and the contractor to ensure that WAFs are developed and that system segregation is properly performed.  A pre-cleaning DVD inspection and air flow test is conducted and recorded.  The systems are cleaned utilizing equipment that generates a negative pressure condition within the duct work while simultaneously agitating and freeing debris from the vent duct walls.  The debris is systematically collected at the suction point utilizing HEPA filters and safely discarded.

A post-cleaning inspection and air-flow inspection is conducted and recorded.  The systems are restored back to their original configuration.  At the completion of work the site is inspected for restoration of systems and cleanliness of site by the ship, the SBS and the contractor.  Most additional work discovered after work start such as additional access door requirements, cleaning of vent fan assemblies, cleaning of heating and cooling coils, cleaning of ventilation terminal devices and replacement of missing or damaged covers, gaskets and fasteners are covered and can be performed under the contract.
