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.

These folks were very professional and did a good job. We planned out services (duct cleaning and carpet cleaning), they came at the scheduled time, and they reported on how the cleaning went (including before and after photos of the ducts) which really helped us appreciate what they did. Thank you!

Kathleen was very flexible in working with my schedule and Juan showed up right on time to clean our ducts. As far as I can tell, Juan did a fantastic and thorough job on our ducts. The pricing was reasonable and I would definitely recommend Bee's. They communicated with me about any issues they faced at my house and made sure that I was happy with the service they provided. Thanks Bee's!

They did great work at a really competitive price. I had to remind them to get the pictures after the visit, but once we got them, you can really see the improvement! They also gave me some (luckily positive) feedback about the general state of health of my furnace and ducting. I never felt like I was being up-sold on anything either, which is apparently a major issue in the duct cleaning business. The work left a bit of a film of dust around the house, so be prepared to wipe up a bit after the work.

The photos they showed me look like they did a great job, but they are simply taken at the vent with an IPhone. It doesn't show how the ducts look deep inside, just as the surface. I also had my furnace cleaned and it smelled like burning dust for a week afterwards. Not sure they got all the dust and there was no follow up call to make sure everything went well.

They rushed in with equipment held together with duct tape. They didn't speak english and then showed me pictures of a dirty furnace. I authorized them to clean to furnace as part of the service. THE FURNACE NEVER WORKED AGAIN!!!! There was no heat in the house for 2 weeks and then it cost me more than $3,000 for a new furnace. The owner said it might have happened during cleaning but offered no relief. Not even a full refund of the service cost. I am now going after then through their liability company and if that doesn't give any relief we will be going to court. Save yourself all this trouble and find another company

We recently bought a house in Centennial. It had a bit of that "old house" smell so we wanted to freshen up the space and make it feel like our own. I reached out to several duct cleaning companies and after communicating with Dan I knew we found our guy! He took the time to explain how his process neutralizes any contaminants in the house and leaves it in a more neutral state. Dan set us up with a Whole Home Refresh service and I couldn't be happier with the service and final result. The space just felt so fresh. We are so excited to move into our new home and make it our own!
