Safety King Southern Africa is a Black Economic Empowerment company based in South Africa with the parent company Safety King International headquartered in Michigan, United States of America. We are a truly African company offering world class indoor air quality solutions in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
Our goal at Safety King is simple:

Because we see this as our mission, we provide our service Technicians with:
- The Best Equipment – Our power-vacuum equipment, air compressors, and custom cleaning tools are the best that money can buy.
- The Best Training – Every single one of our lead Technicians is formally trained. We are the only local provider of air duct cleaning services that can say that.
- The Strongest Management Support – Our Air Duct Cleaning Technicians know the company expects them to do whatever it takes and to take as much time as they need to deliver a totally thorough service.
Safety King: We Specialize
We are a company that cleans ductwork and kitchen hoods, and does nothing else. One of the difficulties encountered by many service companies is that proficiency in several related services is required to be successful. For example, many heating and cooling companies offer duct cleaning as a supplemental service, but of course their primary business is installing and servicing heating and cooling equipment. For these companies, duct cleaning is not always given the attention it deserves. Often it is done by less experienced employees, and is almost always done with inferior equipment.
Mike Palazzolo the founder of Safety King International emphasizes that Safety King is a company that does nothing but duct and kitchen hood cleaning. No furnace installation or service, no maintenance of HVAC equipment, just duct and hood cleaning. “We have learned to become specialists in duct and hood cleaning,” Palazzolo says. “We clean the arteries and veins of businesses and homes.”
The Right Tools
Over the years, as better ways were devised to clean ductwork and hoods, and as cleaning equipment improved, it became more and more obvious how much dirt there actually was in ductwork. In commercial spaces and homes, the square footage of ductwork is roughly equal to the square footage of the smallest office or room. We often suggest to our customers that they imagine that much space littered with dirt, dust, pet hair, and worse.
Keys to Success
Safety King is easily recognizable throughout the Southern Africa and surrounding areas, thanks to our distinctively painted trucks. We advertise locally in print, on radio and on television, but our most important sources of new customers are the heating and cooling contractors in the area who do not perform duct cleaning themselves. They are happy to refer their customers who need duct cleaning to Safety King because we don’t steal their customers. We’re not in the same business they are, so they get their customers back. Plus, their customers are satisfied and happy with the quality air duct and hood cleaning work Safety King has provided. We of course refer back to these same high-quality contractors when one of our customers mentions a need for HVAC installation or service.
