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.

I requested and paid for dryer duct cleaning. The person who performed the service showed up without the appropriate equipment (no ladder) and as such, was unable to properly complete the job. He was informed prior to arrival that the I live in a townhouse and that the duct was on the roof. He did not offer to come back, and we had to pay another company to come out and complete the job.

I was very satisfied with Keith's work. He was very polite and explained what he was doing and cleaned up after himself. The air from our ac vents felt so clean and fresh after his work. We had our blower fan and air duct cleaned. Flora from the office was very professional and very helpful. I will definitely recommend their services.

I needed to have duct cleaning done. The contractor came on a fairly short notice, showed up on-time. He was very polite, professional, and answered all of my questions and helped me pick the best filter for my needs. The company’s pricing is honest and transparent. No mess left behind after the job was finished. The quality of service was very good. A small area for improvement would be sealing the ducts off while cleaning. Unlike some competitors, there were no aggressive up-sells, like “$1000 disinfection, mold prevention mega platinum package “. For example, a competitor who is running a $8 a duct special told me over the phone that the AC intake is extra and the technician will tell me how much when they come. Yeh, right... The result - much fresher air at home. My wife has immediately noticed the difference. I will use them again without hesitation.

Bruce Holman did an excellent job cleaning the air ducts. He was very efficient and neat while doing his work. Took before and after photos so that I could see the difference. I could also smell the difference with the sanatizers that he added. I would recommend him to everyone. It was very nice to have someone take pride in their work and do it well. Thanks Bruce

Hired this company to come out and clean my air ducts and vents. I was quoted one price and then got another for over $1,000 because I had mildew and apparent mold. I would highly suggest that you ask for an estimate before hiring them. Also, I requested before and after pictures since I was not presently there when this service was done and never received it. I felt a little cheated.

I scheduled the appointment and 1 1/2 hours later they still were not at my house. I called, and the lady who answered was so sweet, that I decided to go ahead and let them come later in the afternoon. If it was not for her, I would have said forget it and hired another company. For some reason, I was no where on their schedule. I don't know who returned my call and set the appointment the week before, but she obviously didn't do her job. The two young technicians were very nice, and did a good job cleaning my air ducts. They were very respectful and friendly. I would definitely recommend them. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars was because of the scheduling mishap.
