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 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 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.

Reviews for Atlanta duct and vent installers
Kie J.
Jamar and Kevin came to clean our dryer vent and air ducts today and they were fantastic! Very professional, informative and went above and beyond the call of duty! They cleared all of our vents and ducts and even cleaned out a bird nest in our dryer vent. They installed a UV light and met us at our budget rather than try to charge us top dollar. They did very high quality work and we would definitely recommend them to anyone needing hvac services. Thank you Cooper Massey Services!!

MMI responded very quickly to my message, and were able to come next day to clean my dryer vent. Exterior vent was difficult to access (at ~3rd story of townhome), but techs were able to reach it and clean the dryer duct from the exterior. We're all clear now!

My experience with Peach Home Service was great, from the scheduling by Mike to have the 25’ dryer vent cleaned by Joe. The dryer vent had not been cleaned in many years and had a lot, and I repeat a LOT, of lint buildup. During the task not only was the dryer vent thoroughly cleaned, but I also learned a lot about ducts from Joe. Overall, a great experience.

Great guy!!! I live in a condo and have been having trouble with my dryer duct. He came out and found the problem and told me how to fix it since it wasn't a typical vent clean. I recommend him highly!!!

The technician that came out was incredibly prompt, easy to work with and fully explained to me the situation with my dryer vent duct. He fixed the problem for a very reasonable price and got my system up to code. He even so generously installed my dryer to make sure it was all working. I greatly appreciate this company and will be using them again when I need my air ducts cleaned.

This is a terrific company. From the first communication on the phone the job was done in a highly professional and thorough manner. We needed vent and duct cleaning and asked for some additional cleaning in a few hard to reach spots and the crew accommodated us nicely. We will absolutely call on them in the future.

They did a fantastic job for a great price. They cleaned all of our HVAC ducts and our dryer vent. Our house smells so clean and our dryer is drying clothes so much faster now. They also came out on a Saturday and completely worked around our schedule. Would definitely recommend!

MMI adapted the work to my older ducts and vents and fixed all the issues they found as they went. They were pleasant and efficient and for what I paid even with the extras required I feel it was a good deal. Sometimes it can seem like companies find problems just to make more money. These were all legitimate and much needed fixes. So glad I did this!

I highly recommend Epic4. I needed to have my dryer vent cleaned, but because I had never cleaned the other vents in my condo, I decided to have everything done. Carl's team arrived early, and were very professional, and a pleasure to have working in my home. The whole job took just over two and a half hours, and they explained the process by showing me the special brush tool attached to the vacuum that enabled them to clean my extra long duct work. Payment was exactly what was quoted. Now I am cleaned, disinfected and mold-free. Carl's professional staff set me at ease and I have no hesitation recommended their work.
