Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

How long does it take to get your ducts cleaned?

The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:

  • All doors and access ports opened to ensure the entire duct system is inspected and cleaned.
  • Thorough system inspection prior to cleaning to identify possible asbestos-containing materials. If asbestos is present, specially trained and equipped contractors must do the removal.
  • Use of approved vacuum equipment that exhausts particles outside of your house. If the vacuum exhausts inside your home, it must be HEPA equipment.
  • Furnishings and carpet covered and protected.
  • Soft-bristled brushes only on fiberglass duct board and sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass.
  • Ductwork properly protected.
  • Adherence to guidelines and practices set down by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.

How much does it cost to have someone clean your dryer vent?

The national average dryer vent cleaning costs range from $190 to $260. Dryer vent or duct cleaning costs can vary based on where you live in the country and what ductwork repairs may be required. Duct cleaning pros will use a brush cleaning method, a forced air vacuum, or a combination of the two to remove lint and other debris that can collect in your dryer duct, lint trap housing and vent. If left unchecked, this buildup of highly flammable debris can catch fire and lead to a home fire, says the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. In addition to home safety, a great reason for regular cleaning is the money you’ll likely save on energy bills and improved indoor air quality. Pros may offer a lower rate on their dryer duct cleaning costs when you also hire them to clean your entire HVAC duct system. To ensure you’re working with a pro who will keep your home as safe as possible, read their reviews and check whether they have been certified by a reputable organization such as the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) or the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). Many duct cleaning pros will also show you before-and-after photos as proof of the cleaning.

How much does it cost to have your air ducts cleaned?

If you’re concerned about dust, allergens or mold, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned. The national average cost for air duct cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Air duct cleaning costs will vary based on a number of factors such as your location in the country, the age and condition of your air ducts, the number of linear feet to be cleaned, and any repairs your ducts may need. HVAC cleaning companies should clearly outline what is included in their services and at what rate, so always make sure you understand and have a written agreement before work begins. Here are some examples of average air duct cleaning costs:

  • Tiered pricing for different levels of service:
    • Standard cleaning: $100, which may include truck-mounted industrial vacuums, high-pressure air wands and air snakes to clean all supply and return vents, branch lines, and main trunk lines.
    • Advanced cleaning: $200, which may include standard cleaning services, plus rotobrush or viper clean sweep in the main trunk lines.
    • Ultimate cleaning: $400, which may include advanced cleaning, plus insertion of a viper microline into all vents to force debris down the branch lines and into the main trunk lines, to be handled by the viper clean sweep. Typically, all ductwork surface is contacted, before-and-after photos are provided, and the furnace is cleaned.
  • A flat rate for unlimited vents: $289.
  • Additional fees for larger houses: $20 for each additional 500 square feet over 2,500.

How does duct cleaning work?

Here’s how duct cleaning works in a nutshell:

  • A professional duct cleaner will inspect your ducts.
  • They’ll use vacuums and brushes to clean up dust and debris.
  • And then they’ll seal and clean everything up. 

During the inspection process, the air duct cleaner will also look for cracks or leaks. Depending on what they find, they may also recommend repairs.

Francisco and his team did an incredible job. They were respectful of our home while working and used protective covers in the areas they were cleaning the air ducts. They cleaned up after the work was complete and overall did an amazing job for a super reasonable price. They wore masks the entire time, kept their distance for safety, and were just very kind and pleasant to have in our home. I plan to continue using them in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs their air ducts cleaned.

F&M is the best air duct cleaning I had experienced. Francisco and Rueben had far exceeded my expectation. 1. They took down each vent. Instead of wipe it with a rag. They took it outside and sprayed it with disinfectant and rinsed it off before putting it back 2. All air duct was disinfected and thoroughly cleaned 3. At last, both returned vent were disinfected again 4. On the dryer vent, Francisco even took the panel off the lint filter in the dryer to perform a deep cleaning inside the dryer. No other air duct company ever done this before They have a very power vacuum machine with HEPA filter. I did not smell/see any dust in the house during the cleaning. If you are looking for quality work, you can't go wrong with F&M. I will recommend to all my friends. Their rate is reasonable and they stick with the original estimate(I had other companies quoted me a different rate after they arrived)

When I called early in the morning to schedule a dryer duct cleaning, Beth was prompt in calling me back. She scheduled a visit for the same day at 4:00 pm. Steve (the lead technician) called me at about 1:15 to let me know they were running early and to ask if it was okay if they came by at 1:45. Early is ALWAYS good with me! Both technicians, Steve and Vince, were very friendly, professional and diligent. They did a great job answering all of many questions, cleaned my dryer duct, cleaned up, reconnected my dryer, and were gone in less than 45 minutes. Oh, and they use flat-rate pricing. So no matter how difficult the job or how long your ductwork is, or even if it goes to your roof, they only charge a flat rate plus a VERY low trip charge (our trip charge was $15). If you ever need your vents cleaned, and you DO, this is the ONLY place to call. You'll be glad you did. (TB)

Casey and Raul did a thorough, complete, excellent job of air duct cleaning. They were the type of people whom you want inside your home. I had a mess due to water damage and reconstruction, but they were totally efficient in spite of the boxes and containers here. I wholeheartedly recommend them for their fine efforts and successful work which also will help with my allergies.
