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 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 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.

Little late in arriving but overall pleased with the work. They explained what they were going to do before starting, finished in a timely manner, and showed pictures of the before/after. Good value for getting the air ducts, bathroom vents, and dryer vents cleaned out. Would recommend!

From start to finish i cant say enough of how professional this company is and they provide before and after pics so that you can see the improvement. I will definitely reccommend them to anyone who needs duct and vent cleaning!!!

It was so worth it! We just moved into a home where the previous owner did not keep their vents cleaned or maintained for years. Cooper Massey services responded quickly and came out the next day to service our new home! With a baby on the way and little children there is no way we would have stayed here without getting the ducts cleaned. We also got our dryer vent cleaned out, which by the way was a mess! Now the house smells better and my nose isn’t acting up as much, same thing my hubby said. Very pleased with the time it took and the education that was provided by their two man team.

BEWARE, ALMOST GOT HOODWINKED INTO $3.5K EXTRA. We had 2 technicians come to the door of our newly bought home: they were very safe & friendly, kept their masks on and stayed at a safe distance. Within 15 minutes they took me outside and, in a grave and contrite tone, informed me that I had black mold in every single vent in the house, showing me a blackened vent. Black mold, he said, could cause respiratory illness and even cancer. I had family visiting about about 5 kids over- he referenced concern for their health and safety"I see you have kids in the house and everything." They would be unable to complete the cleaning without a mold remediation treatment with UV filtration system installation in addition to the cleaning fee totaling about $4400. But they could get it all done today, should only take about 2-3 hours, and then the house would be safe! I must confess, they really got me. I was thinking of my young daughter falling ill and was ready to sign my life away. The move had been so stressful and it made sense that of course, another disaster had struck. And they were so kind, concerned for our health. I called my husband and that's when we began to ask questions- didn't we have a mold test done before buying the house? (Yes- no black mold) Shouldn't this be covered by a home warranty? (Per the technician "you can ask, but this usually isn't covered") Don't you have to send a sample to confirm black mold vs grime buildup? (No test was done). After realizing that I wasn't going to make an on the spot decision, the technician kindly told us to take our time, that they would want us to feel totally comfortable and after all mold is a "slow killer" anyway (strange after all that windup & urgency about the children before) and left. After calling around to our real estate agent, the home warranty company, and other duct cleaning vendors, we finally realized that we were almost conned into a ridiculously expensive upgrade. If there really was black mold in our ducts and vents, the entire duct system would have had to be ripped out and replaced. A test should have been done confirming the problem. I am grateful that my husband and real estate agent pulled me back from the ledge. Please be careful!
