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.

Scheduled an estimate but the workers were sent out instead. We went with them anyways. The ducts are clean but we had to clean a lot of dust off the floor. I'm guessing thats expected. Would give 3.5 stars.

Techs were late so while I waited I moved furniture and removed the grills to expedite the cleaning process. Tech was not able to clean the whole system as advertised due to shortness of hose length. Equipment frequently failed causing tech much aggravation. Vacuum ability of equipment was inadequate which resulted in tech being covered in dirt and a layer of dust being deposited on everything in my home. Several ducts were not cleaned due to inability of the equipment to navigate smaller openings, although I still had to pay for those ducts. I helped with cleaning as the helper seemed disinterested in removing the large clumps of dust that had fallen grom the ducts. I also replaced all the grills so the tech could make his next appointment on time. The tech did what he could with the equipment he had to work with but over I am disappointed that I paid full price but only received 70% cleaning. On the plus side, the anti microbial spray smells nice.

I am very pleased with the service I received from the guys at Protective Solutions. They were on time, courteous and really paid attention to the detail work cleaning vents and ducts requires. They painstakingly cleaned the dust out of my popcorn ceiling, and even repainted a lot of my ceiling vents so they looked brand new. They even pulled some parts out of my air handler and rinsed the grime out of them. They were very good about cleaning up after the dust that fell on the floor and the total amount I paid was actually less expensive than I thought it would be. Protective Solutions is very well-priced compared to their competitors. I will again hire them the next time I need my vents and ducts cleaned. Thank you so kindly to Protective Solutions!

Carlos did an awesome job on my air vents. Wish I took before and after pictures to show you all but let’s just say I was well overdue to get the air vents and dryer duct cleaned. I am very pleased with the results and I look forward to working with Carlos again in the future.

Patrick and his team did an amazing job! Our air vents had a lot of dust, and we are glad we got it done now, before things could have gotten worse. This company went above and beyond the call of duty. They cleaned our air ducts, vacuumed the baseboards and even repainted the vents. The team arrived on time, did the work in a timely manner, and they did it for a very reasonable price. We cannot recommend this company enough.

Stan is one hardworking man! He came early ahead of schedule, and he did not rush the job even staying longer time. What a difference after he cleaned my air duct, I don't see dust on my furniture, and most importantly, I stoped sneezing. For sure, I'm going to use his service again as he direct and his price is the most affordable I can find online. Thank you Stan! More power to your business.

Greg is hands-down the BEST person we’ve ever had doing our duct cleaning. He responded immediately, punctually arrived as scheduled in less than 24 hours, found that roofers hadn’t removed vent screen. He took his time, did the work impeccably, even offered professional opinions about our laundry space. I’d absolutely hire him again, although, he was so thorough, I doubt we’ll need him again for several years.

She provided immediate responses to any questions we had, was willing to work with us regarding price point, and her professionalism and character spoke volumes. The technicians were nice, professional, and well mannered. They did not lollygag nor waste time. They showed up on time and had their own masks and shoe coverings. We will not hesitate to call them again for any other needs we may have.
