This is the third time I have had Greenside Carpet/Dryer Vent Cleaning Service clean my rugs. They are very efficient, , personable, professional and do an incredible job of first spotting the areas needing extra attention, moving furniture if needed and properly cleaning areas that you have asked them to clean. I had a project challenge I was struggling with and they stepped up without my asking and assisted me. That got extra stars for going the extra mile. Thanks guys. You'll be back!!

I am very happy with the care and cleaning by Charles and his team Air Duct Professionals. Apparently dryers should be cleaned every year (and Charles says you can use a leaf blower in the disconnected dryer entry one year and alternate with the pro your second year). Heating cooling ductwork should be cleaned every 5-7 years. I didn't know that, but can see how this makes sense. My ducts were filthy, as I had never had them cleaned, and after 14 years I was prompted when my dryer lost its efficiency. Charles and his team did fine work. They arrived on time, cleaned up during and after, including cleaning vent covers and floor sweeping any escaped debris (like old paint chipped overspray from the builder). The job took over 3.5 hours on my two system, 20 vent household. Charles was very knowledgable, inspected the job and then took the extra effort of going into the attic to check the condition of the ducts themselves. He pointed out that skipping this step could make the whole cleaning process a waste of time. He found a couple of holes made the repairs at no charge. He also did extra work with the attic for me--observing it needed cleanup, including removing a dead bird, which prompted me to give him a hefty tip. Meanwhile the team sealed the vents and vacuumed/cleaned them thoroughly. The dryer vents out of my roof, and I hadn't realized the end cap (deflecto) had blown off and was missing. It left an opening in the roof for the bird to get into my attic and also was the reason my dryed vent was clogged-- with a second big fat (dead) bird that had flown down the tube, which Charles desposed of. Charles has a background in fire restoration/cleanup, and this knowledge showed in his work. He also pointed out that when I run the dryer I must turn on the fan and shut the laundry room door to keep lint from escaping into my house. He also recommended I start using a better filter than my current (which the company does not sell), the 3M Filtrete. He also replaced the dryer/wall connector as mine had screw holes for lint to escape. He showed me how much lint had collected around the holes, some of which went airborn. So not only did Charles, Jasmine and Jevan do great work, I also learned from this experience. The Deflecto replacement required someone with a long ladder to tackle the job. I hired a second company who also cleans ducts (they didn't bring their long ladder, though I had explained what the job needed). They came, and they inspected Charles' work because they said some air duct cleaners don't really do a good job, that the ducts still might need cleaning, but after inspecting there was no need for any more work. So I would say the second company gave (tacit) good reviews to Charles' team as well.

James installed a range hood for me. I started out on this project by contacting an "appliance installer" that was recommended. I'll call him the "1st installer". It took the 1st installer at least 2 weeks to make it out to my house to look at the job. Then he declined the job saying it was such a simple job that I should simply go to the store that sold the vent hoods and they's probably have one of their people install the hood for a minimal charge. I went over to Pacific Sales and bought a hood I liked. I told the salesman to recommend a good installer. I told him I wanted someone highly qualified because the hole in the ceiling would need to be moved. The hood arrived and then a few days later the 2nd installer came to do the installation. The 2nd installer took a look at the job and said he couldn't do it because preparations still needed to be made, ie the hole in the ceiling needed to be moved. Next I contacted a 3rd person, a handyman I know that usually can usually do just about anything. He removed the drywall on the ceiling but he couldn't complete the job because he said he wasn't licensed to cut a hold in the roof. Finally I went on Thumbtack and found James, the 4th installer. He came out immediately and did everything excerpt to seal the vent on top of the roof. He referred me to a roofer who didn't show up. When James found out that the roofer hadn't showed up James climbed on my roof and sealed it against the weather...for no additional charge! I was so impressed with James that I've hired him to remodel my downstairs and convert it to a rental unit.

Sunwest Company was a great decision and I am very very happy with the service they provided! Honestly They were very respectful hardworkers and detail orientated. When i critiqued their work they were happy to fix what I found. The did a move out cleaning, carpet cleaning, and tile/grout. They also fixed a patch on the carpet which was a bit pricey but better than before. The only thing I noticed i wasn't happy and wish I noticed while they were the patch they did upstairs really wasn't nice but the one that everyone saw was good! The house was filthy when they started from our previous tenant in the house. Now it is definitely ready to be sold. very big difference! I will definitely keep them in mind if I need something else done :) possibly for the house we will God willing buy. They are very good and don't waste time. Also don't charge by the hour which is the best part!

I did not really know where exactly to turn in getting my ducts cleaned. thank good I found these guys cause they did a superb job with everything there! I didn't realize how much dust and just grime had accumulated up there over the years until I was shown! Cannot believe I had not utilized these services any sooner! The Estimate that I was give was spot on as well which was very nice. If you need your air ducts cleaned out and you are in a big hurry, please call these guys up! They will not give you the run around that other companies do or all of the sudden change the price on you. Quality services at great prices, I like that.

Matt made time in his busy schedule to clean all the air ducts and the dryer duct in a home to make it ready for move in on a holiday weekend. He was clean, efficient, honest and very reasonably priced. He was even able to change the thermostats on the same day. We would HIGHLY recommend him for any heating and AC service.

    The guys were very good, their pricing was good, and they came when they said. They actually went above and beyond to clean the vent of the dryer, pulling everything out, checking it, and pulling it out again to make sure that there were no kinks in the line. I was quite impressed!

    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.

    Do you need to clean your air ducts?

    Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

    You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

    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 replace air ducts in a house?

    If your air ducts have been damaged, you’ll need to replace them. The national average air duct replacement cost is $150-$280, which may not include materials. Factors such as duct material, labor, location of ducts and linear feet of ductwork will all affect your final costs. Labor costs will vary based on how accessible the ducts are and what material your ducts are made of. The least expensive duct material is a flexible, non-metallic ducting that costs approximately $1-$2 per linear foot. Flexible aluminum is generally more expensive and stronger than non-metallic ducting. Stainless steel ducting is the strongest, the least flexible (meaning installing it typically has higher labor rates), and usually the most expensive. An average price for air duct replacement could range between $35 and $55 per linear foot, including basic materials and labor. A typical single-family home has 6-10 duct runs; replacing or installing one duct run could average $150-$250 for labor.

    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.
