Mr. Ofer Tsemah on 06 March 2016 performed an entire cleaning of all of my air duct supply vents, return vents, and dryer vent (19 total) in my home. He was very professional and explained every step. Mr. Ofer further explained preventative maintenance for future long lasting efficiency. My furnace was inspected and cleaned as well. Clean air doctors are highly recommended and I definitely will contact this business for future duct cleaning services. Thank you Clean Air Doctors. Sincerely Joe H. Chicago

My experience with Sam and Rapid Air far exceeded my expectations. He was on time for his appointment, friendly, courteous and completely professional. He did a thorough inspection of my clothes dryer and accurately identified the problem. He not only replaced the defective part, but completely cleaned the inside and outside of the dryer and all the related duct work leading to the outside of the house. He even replaced the exhaust hose in the back of the dryer as part of his service. Sam took great pains to be respectful of my house and property. Even though went outside and came back in multiple times while cleaning the duct work and had much of dryer taken apart in order to do the repair, he left my laundry room as clean or cleaner than it was before he arrived. The price he charged was very fair and the service was great. I would highly recommend Rapid Air to everyone. Thank you Sam.

After talking to a few companies I decided to go with Green Air Care. My experience with Green Air Care was a good one. The person who came out to see me was informative and tried to answer all questions I had. The installation of my new air conditioner and furnace was done in one day. The job was done neatly and configured the way I wanted it. I was not the average customer and had done my research quite well. I requested things that most customers had not. Green Air Care was able to accommodate all requests possible. The installer of all equipment did a great job and you can see it on the pictures. At the end of the job one of the company inspectors made sure that the work was done well and addressed any concern I had. I also had my ducts cleaned and sealed. The duct cleaning and sealing was also done neatly and clean. I recommend Green Air Care they do a great job.

I was thoroughly impressed with the service I received from HB Appliance. Hugo contacted me within 8 min. of submitting a work ticket on Thumbtack. We talked briefly on the phone about the problem my dryer was having. Hugo was able to assess the problem and arrange to have the parts for the service appointment the next day. Hugo called me 20 min. prior to our agreed upon appointment time to confirm and say he was on his way, and arrived promptly at the agreed upon time. He talked me through the problem first and gave me a solution including costs, which were very reasonable. He was able to repair my dryer within an hour and didn't charge me a penny more than what we discussed. The dryer was cleaned, put back together and running beautifully, and the room was left clean. Hugo's customer service, knowledge of the machine, and overall demeanor were unprecedented. I will absolutely call HB Appliance for our next appliance/HVAC service needs. Thank you Thumbtack and thank you Hugo!

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!!!

Josh did a great job remodeling my entire bathroom, tile, shower, floor, trim, paint, vanity, lighting. Bathroom looks great, affordable quote with excellent communication/project management and a very fair price. I would recommend for bathroom tiling and paint, etc. I actually did all the demo, and it got too difficult for me to continue, Josh came in and knocked the project out the park.

I am not someone who typically sends reviews but I just was totally blown away by the excellent customer service we received today and had to share, We truly had two of the nicest techs come to our house today! We originally asked for dryer vents and duct cleaning, I mentioned to my father that we needed to call and get our heating system done and they mentioned they could do that, too! Sam and Esteban were fantastic and my father said to add he has never met two young men who took the time to explain and were just so pleasant! We appreciate it! Looking for duct cleaning, dry cleaning or A/C and Heating, this is the place to call!

Thomas Martinez is very professional, knowledgeable, punctual and a very nice person to do business with. He responded to my inquiry in less than 10 minutes, confirmed that he could do what I requested and had the part (an igniter) on his truck. The price was about $100.00 less than what a well known competitor company wanted. He came out the next day at the time agreed on and completed installation in about half an hour. He explained in detail what he was doing and actually showed me the replacement igniter and the old one. I am very pleased with T.M. Heating & Cooling with the work he did and will call him again with any issues pertaining to my furnace. I will recommend him to others requiring his expertise. By the way, prior contacting T.M., I left voice messages with two other ‘reputable’ heating & cooling companies. Neither has yet to return my calls. Thanks a million Thomas!

I couldn’t be more pleased with All Natural Services! On the phone, Jonathan listened carefully to my concerns regarding my problem Berber carpet and provided knowledgeable feedback. He also provided information about the cleaning solution used, which gave me peace of mind considering my chemical sensitivities. On the day of service, he arrived within the window of time specified and was extremely professional. He was patient as I showed him areas that needed attention and did a terrific job cleaning the carpet!!! I recommend Jonathan and All Natural Services without hesitation. Thank you!!!

I’ve used this company for a couple different dryer vent issues. They always show up on time and do a good job. We had to replace a couple of sections of duct work for my dryer exhaust. The workers were quick and efficient. Would definitely use again for duct work jobs

This guy saved my life. After two shady Craigslist guys disappeared I downloaded this app and Alex contacted me. He offered reasonable price and finished everything few days before planned. Beside that he did way more than I asked for - installed light fixtures, went to hardware store, cleaned my condo. Communication with him was great as well. I’d totally recommend him for any project you have.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.
