Sam is great! He was able to clean my dryer vent timely and he was even early to the appointment. He showed me everything he was doing. He was incredibly conscientious and cleaned up the area so well. And his price was $50 less than the other contractors I contacted. I will definitely be using him again. I highly recommend calling Sam for your vent cleaning and dryer cleaning needs.

Ken and his crew repaired loose siding on my home and also cleaned the gutters. I was able to have the work done a few days after I contacted him. The price was decent and they completed the work in about an hour. I will definitely call them again next time the gutters need cleaning.

Joe was excellent! He repaired 3 hinges on our kitchen cabinets and check out a closet door we have been having trouble with. He even made a return visit to be sure the job was complete. My first experience with him has encouraged me to think that I have found an excellent professional to call for many hone services.

Two technicians came out. They were very approachable, easy to talk with, understanding, and willing to cooperate. I also learned a lot about duct cleaning and the dangers concerning the application of 'air freshner' or any type of deodorizer introduced in the the vent system, that so many other duct cleaning companies so freely and readily offer. As someone with allergies and asthma I was very grateful. THANKS FOR THE EDUCATION MR DUCT!!!

The young man and young lady who came to my house were very professional, polite and easy going Very nice to talk to and did an outstanding job cleaning my carpets . Will def hiring them again in the near future . The only thing I was disappointed in was on the web page they say they do 11 steps of cleaning . They did not do that . I was told that's only for a deep clean ( when they got here )the problem with that ...the person I talked to on the phone to hire them ( Jason)never told me that at all so I was expecting the 11 steps . He even went threw the steps they used but never told me once ,but that doesn't include my cleaning package ..Disappointed with that ( they should really tell people and put on web page that's only for deep cleaning not a general carpet cleaning ( the web site makes it look like the 11 steps comes with all carpet cleaning )again which the man on the phone did not tell me.... ( Jason)but nether less the 2 young adults did a fantastic job and were very detailed . Very happy I hired them 😊 Will hire again no doubt .... oh and they did not try to sell me everything under the moon or con me into stuff like I had other carpet cleaning services do . Very happy with them

These guys do exceptional work! They painted the rooms in our house and they did such a good job that we hired them to paint our kitchen. The cabinets are beautiful and look brand new. We will continue to hire this father/son duo to do many projects around our house including exterior paint, repairing drywall and odd jobs. They were punctual and very easy to work with. I highly recommend hiring the Chwalek team!

My husband and I just bought a house that required a lot of work and our family friend recommended Matt to help us remodel our new home. Matt is very knowledgable and professional with his work. He explained everything and answered all of our questions. We could not be happier with the high quality work he did at our house. Our kitchen and bar look amazing! We will definitely ask Matt to come back next year to work on our deck. For anyone who is considering remodeling their home, I highly recommend Matt.

My experience with Thomas McNichols was very pleasant. He helped me with the design of my remodeling project with regard to the layout and products. In 2008 I hired Thomas McNichols to remodel my home. I had an unfinished attic which I was now going to finish and add a dormer to. I had them build me two bedrooms, a walk in closet, bathroom, linen closet and 3 storage closets. Central air was also added to my second floor. Before the second floor could be complete, my existing stairways to my attic and basement had to be taken out and rerouted. Brand new stairs were built to my seond floor and basement. Once that project was done, I had my kitchen completely remodeled. It was a complete gut job and they also opened up a back porch to enlarge the kitchen. While the kitchen renovation was going on, new siding was being put on my whole house and new front stairs were built. The entire house renovation took 4 1/2 months to complete. In 2009 I hired Thomas McNichols again to put new siding on my garage and pour a new patio in my backyard. In 2013 I again hired Thomas McNichols to gut and remodel a first floor bathroom which took 3 weeks to complete. At that time, they also opened up a first floor bedroom off my kitchen and converted it to a family room. That job took 10 days to complete. I could not have been more pleased with the work that Thomas Builders & Construction Co. performed at my house. I was very pleased with the outcome. My house is beautiful. This company is very professional, they were always on time, they cleaned up after themselves every day and never left me a mess, and every step of the construction was explained to me along the way. There were no surprises, they were very patient with me and very reasonable in their rates. The quality of the work was outstanding. I recommend Thomas McNichols to everyone I know.

I had birds nssting in my kitchen exhaust vent system. I called a pest removal service, warning them not to attempt removal if they thought they were leaving any live birds behind. They said they wouldn't. Then they did. After detecting a smell and maggots a week or so later I called them back to deal with it but they said they wouldn't attempt it, concerned about not being able to handle dismantling the fan system. I found Air Care through Thumbtack and they said it would be no problem to handle the bird remains, maggots and fan disassembly. As it turns out, they didn't even have to disassemble, they went in through the access panel above the fan housing and cleaned out everything. These guys are top notch, worth every penny (a very reasonable price at that, considering I paid nearly as much to the other guys to cause the problem). Kudos to the owner (I think), Bruce, for responding with a quote so fast, and his technician for doing a great job.

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.
