About South Island Filter Cleaning Specialists

Although the name is new, South Island Filter Cleaning Specialists is the longest established air filter cleaning business in the South Island.

Current owner, Steve van Gelder, has been running the business for the past 14 years. The previous owner ran the business for over 9 years. The original entrepreneur and founder ran the business for over 4 years. Thus South Island Filter Cleaning Specialists have been serving the South Island for almost 30 years. We are proud to say that we have some customers who have been with us now for over 20 years!

Originally our filter cleaning business started out with the wet wash machine, and it was through a good friend of ours who decided to move on to new ventures, after many years in this same industry, that we purchased their business and acquire a sonic dry filter cleaning machine.
