Five things to know about Kevin: 1. HE'S INSURED - My attorney wife absolutely insists that anyone who I hire to do work on our property be insured. Unscrupulous uninsured hired help will fake injuries while on your property and then sue you. She's seen it many times. My insurance company agrees with her. 2. HE WONT Burglarize your house! - for years I worked with a big hearted extremely competent general contractor who compassionately hired associates who had checkered pasts. I strongly suspect that one of those associates burglarized my house and stole $29,000 worth of stuff. It looked like an inside job. Kevin is an extremely patriotic 51-year-old ex naval aviator whose married with a kid. Kevin is a guy you can trust! 3. KEVIN IS EXTREMELY COMPETENT: he's been working in the plumbing area for over 30 years - started at age 17. He's worked on thousands of jobs over the years (249 on thumbtack alone) and is undefeated when it comes to plumbing problems. He's a very, very intelligent guy with dogged determination who will do whatever it takes to fix your plumbing problems. 4. HIS RATES ARE UNBELIEVABLY LOW- two "rooter " companies gave me free on site estimates of $275 to fix my clogged kitchen sink. Kevin came in at less than half that. We encountered some unanticipated complexities with my drain that could have resulted in a doubling of the cost from the "rooter" companies, but Kevin held firm to his original estimate. 5. KEVIN IS IN FREAKISHLY GOOD SHAPE- I'm a former athlete who lifts weights and is in generally good shape. But I was amazed at Kevin's ability to hoist a 100 pound "snake machine " on my roof to access an air exhaust pipe in order to clear my clogged pipe. Man, there ain't no way that I could have done that. In summary, as homeowners we all have multiple types of anxieties when it comes to hiring strangers to come into our homes to do work. Kevin allays all such concerns. He's the best guy I've ever contracted with, and if all Americans had his work ethic and sense of moral fortitude, than there would be no problems with our country.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the professionalism and service provided by everyone at Home Team Services. We were most in need of a dryer flue cleaning, and since this is no longer offered as a stand-alone service, I opted to include the 10 vent cleaning as well, especially since we just moved into this new home and were unsure if they had ever been cleaned. I was under a time crunch, as our new washer and dryer had already been ordered, so I was immensely relieved when Israel was able to fit me in on an already busy day later that week. It turned out that it was even busier than expected and they called several times with updates on their ETA and even offered to reschedule so they weren't intruding on our evening, which I turned down. By the time they arrived, we had settled on the stand-alone dryer flue cleaning, as it was our most pressing need. From arrival to departure, the team was an absolute delight! They showed me pictures of the flue before and after, and communicated each phase as they went along. The flue was an absolute mess and it clearly hadn't been cleaned for about ten years! In the end, they insisted that we not pay since they were so late, which was so respectful of my time, and I'm eager to get them back out here soon to get to work on the vents!

I cannot speak more highly of Healthy Duct Cleaning !!! Their service went far beyond my expectations! We needed to have our ductwork cleaned as well as dryer vents cleaned. sam and his team showed up right on time, and spent over 4 hours cleaning all the duct work, vents, intake, blower, inside the furnace and more. They do a complete inspection of the system before beginning the cleaning process, by checking each vent while the system is on to insure air is flowing through the vent. It is clear they care deeply about the job they are doing, and do all to insure the customer has no questions, and is very happy with the results. I truly could not speak more highly of this company. Don't look any further. Hire Healthy duct cleaning You will not regret it!!!

I needed a new door knob and deadbolt installed and a bathroom vent fan replaced. Nick answered my call on a Saturday and scheduled for 9:00 on Tuesday. Between texts, I was able to go and get the door knob and fan. Nick showed up promptly at 9:00 and after seeing the jobs, went to work. He was quiet, courteous, knowledgable, honest...what more can I say? I now have a working door knob and a great bathroom fan. He was reasonably priced and I've found my handyman. I won't have anyone but Nick for my projects from now on. The only problem? He's so good that I might end up thinking of more home projects!!!

JR and his team were FANTASTIC! We had a fully occluded dryer vent that we thought just needed cleaning - as it turns out, it had been poorly installed and completely busted! JR found a great solution to re-route the vent, and it looks great! We also had his team add in a heating system vent cleaning-- they were so thorough with our very dirty ducts!! Work was done with high quality and for a great price! Highly recommend this company!!

Denny is a consummate professional. What he quotes/proposes is exactly what you get. His work is top quality and he communicates well. I just got a vent fan installed in the kitchen where the duct had to be run to the outside. I also got another heating/cooling vent installed in the bedroom. He did both jobs perfectly and left the house just as clean as it was. He does all this at a great price. Highly recommend Denny

We had Air Aware come clean our ducts after we moved into our new condo. Yair and his crew were awesome - very respectful of our brand new floors and did a great job. They also made an extra special effort to clean out the dryer vent - which actual required Yair to climb out of our 3rd story window! All of this included in the price to clean the ducts! I highly recommend Air Aware.

I have nothing but good to say about Erasmo and CaliforniAir. I needed to move a vent and add a vent to a large room. He was showed up when he said he was going to show up. The first thing he did after introducing himself was put on shoe covers before coming in my home. It was clear from the get go he knew what he was talking about. He was direct and focused in his assessment, clear in his communication and honest in what would and would not work. There was no upselling! or adding costs halfway through the job. On the day of the job he was running a few minutes behind and texted to let me know. He was neat, tidy and thorough in his work. He needed to cut through the ceiling in three different places, but you'd never know because the room was as clean as before he was there. I'd recommend this company in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate using them again.

I highly recommend this company for those who needed their air duct cleaning because of several reasons: First their website was really helpful and provided me information on what to expect when they arrive in my home. Second their technicians are very professional and helpful and Third their price is reasonable for such a great service.

About

Do you have any idea how dangerous your dryer vent can be? Oh don't worry, we're not talking about the one you pull out after each dryer load and swipe the lint out of. You handily throw away a very small percentage of the actual lint pulled from that dryer load. So, where did the other 75% go? The majority of the lint that is pulled from your clothing, blankets, towels, etc. is deposited in that shiny silver pipe known as the dryer vent or duct work. In some houses, it may be just a couple of feet, while in others, we have seen hoses as long as 30 feet or more. It's actually quite scary when you learn about just how dangerous this can be.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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 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 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 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.
