cleaned the chimney and dryer vent, but didn't have a new cover on the truck to replace the old one, so he had to go back to the office to get it, took about 90 minutes longer

Leo is first rate. He came to my home and presented himself professionally and did a first rate job. This house had never had the air vent system cleaned and was built in 1969. He tackled this job head on and the difference is unbelievable. I would recommend Home Pro Air Duct Cleaning to everyone and I will definitely have him come back every six months now.

We asked for proposals for duct and vent cleaning. We got a number of fast responses. We decided to pursue The Best Air Quality and Restoration based on reviews, cost proposed and the credentials and info on their website. The response from the firm was quick and we were able to schedule at my convenience. The vendor showed up on time and did the work thoroughly and professionally and even added some additional services we needed without excessive charges. I was very pleased with the work and the personnel. I asked them to follow up with me when this service was needed again. I would definitely recommend them.

We had the basement cleared of insulation material and carpet with mold, and the basement walls and floor washed off existing mold, and sprayed for mold prevention. We had dehumidifier and vent registers put in, and basement walls painted with Drylok. The basement is now mold-free, with adequate air circulation and humidity control, thanks to RestorClean's professional work and recommendations. Very impressed with the company!

Walter installed a 50 gallon power vented water heater in a basement crawlspace. From the first time i contacted him until the project was complete he was responsive and did what he said he would do. Walter even went out of his way to fit the install into our very busy schedule. He is a true professional and he completed the project on budget. Will be working with him on future projects.

Best Company Ever!!! I contacted MJ Home Services originally to have my vents cleaned. John & his team responded immediately and found that I had some mold issues as my home is 62 years old. They completely cleaned my whole system and treated my basement to eradicate the mold. John also did several other jobs for me in addition to the mold treatment including, carpet cleaning, installing a French drain, and many other small jobs which greatly improved our home. John is the Master & is very knowledgeable. He and his team were prompt, courteous, professional, reliable, affordable, and very pleasant to work with throughout the entire process. I highly recommend MJ Services for any air duct or carpet cleaning or any of the services they provide. You will be very happy using this company, which is very rare these days!!! I would give them 10 stars if I could!!!

I had a great experience with Breathe Easy. They were on time, responsive, and did a great job of cleaning out my dryer vent. They showed me how much gunk was built up and I'm so thankful they came as it definitely was a fire hazard. Thanks Breathe Easy!

Moses HVAC, and their team of Matt, provided exceptional service of air duct cleaning.Their work was higher quality and more affordable than other companies that I have previously used. They also found a mistake made by a previous company and fixed it for no extra charge that will save me a lot of money on my electric bill in the future. I could not recommend them strongly enough.

Dan was fantastic. He did all he said he would do and then some. He not only cleaned the vents to my dryer, but went into the attic, disassembled the outside vent on the roof, and found the blockage that was keeping my dryer from working properly. I was thinking I'd have to buy a new dryer, but it works great now. He and his crew were very polite, skilled and professional. I will use them again, without a doubt.

Anthony worked with our limited schedule and arrived right on time. He performed the job well, cleaned up afterwards. Was honest about the state of our HVAC vents (not as bad as we thought) and our dryer vent (way worse than we thought). We would recommend his services and use him again for sure.

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.
