Got a quote from Ofer of Clean Air Doctors and decided to hire them. First of all, these guys are extremely polite, respectful, professional, thorough, and deliver as promised. They thoroughly explained everything they were going to do ahead of time and they delivered as promised. They provided me an amount it was going to cost and gave me a rough time estimate that the duct and vent cleaning would take about 3 hours total, but it took about 5.5 hours in all. It was not their fault that it took so long as I had some 55 vents and ducts to be cleaned. But they stayed and finished the job as promised and did not ask for a penny more. In addition, I asked that they look at my dryer vent and they obliged. What more could you ask of a service? Very happy indeed with this company, TWO THUMBS UP, FIVE STAR RATING, A+++!!!

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.

Mark was punctual, courteous, and very helpful. He went through all the rooms with me and explained the whole process. He stated it would take about 2 hours. However, I had never had duct cleaning performed at my home and he stayed for 4 hours until the job was complete and the price stayed the same. He showed me before and after pictures/video of the ducts. Dryer vent cleaning was also included in the price. Also, he was able to tell me about new products such as a permanent filter and UV light for the furnace. He noticed that the humidifier was not working and gave me an estimate. There is also a discounted rate for yearly maintenance. Mark has a lifelong customer.

Dion was BEYOND fantastic!!!He responded almost immediately after i posted the job, and he was at my house less than an hour after he and I spoke on the phone. Dion fixed the issue with my AC and was very patient and knowledgeable when explaining everything to me. While he was working on my AC, I mentioned that i was fairly certain my air ducts were full of dust from a recent home renovation & probably needed to be cleaned. Dion gave me a reasonable quote to clean them, and I was going to talk it over with my husband that week and would be in touch to schedule it for a later date. However Dion took extra time after completing the AC job to examine my vents. After inspecting them, he told me that they really were not that bad, and he didn’t think they needed to be cleaned at this point. What an HONEST GUY! He could have easily taken advantage of the situation and made a quick buck off of me, but he didn’t!!! He was completely HONEST & clearly wanted what was in the best interest for me and my home. We will definitely be using Dion again!

We had them clean two bedrooms, clean our air ducts and clean the grout in two bathrooms. Our condo has been home to numerous dogs (both prior to us purchasing it and two of our own) and the carpeting smelled really bad. They had a black light where they could show us the urine stains....yuck... The good news, they were able to get all of the pet urine odors out and guarantee it! Our air ducts were gross too. They cleaned and sanitized them and now it is wonderful! The grout in our bathrooms needed to be cleaned and I don't have the patient and, frankly, the time to get them as clean as I wanted. They are sparkling clean now. Lucy was lovely to work with as was the young man assisting her. Thank you! We will use your service again!

Daniel and Jerry were outstanding. They communicated in advance and arrived on time. During a routine dryer vent cleaning, they encountered an unexpected problem and worked quickly to solve it. I have complete confidence in Best Indoor Air Doctor, Inc. and will schedule annual cleaning/maintenance.

    Never ever judge a book by its cover. Early morning I open my door for the gentleman that is scheduled to fix my air conditioner, My first words in my head was, Ohhhh Boy, this gentleman is awfully Young, handsome but very young looking, so I told myself I hope he knows what he's doing. So I repeat Never judge a book by its cover. Because of this gentleman and his Professional job skills. I can breathe better less allergies if any and believe it or not a smaller electric bill. he thoroughly took his time to clean all my vents, replaced the part that needed to be repaired also found some minor imperfections that needed repair which is what actually brought down my electrical bill at least 20%. Can't thank this gentleman enough. I highly recommend johnnyray from Advanced Air to all family, friends, and those in need of heating and air repairs. BREATH FRESH AIR/STAY COOL........ENJOY LIFE!!!!

    A+ service. I had 15 vents cleansd. HVAC Coil. Sanitizer done for all of the ventilation system. plus Dryer Vent. All for a flat price $249.00 They did offer 100% Money Back Guarantee. So I knew they had to stand by their work. 4 yrs ago we hired a low cost company and they came in and hit us with all these extra charges saying their cost only included 10 vents cleaning and just 1 return. Then they sharhed us $149 fir coil cleaning and I was pissed. 9.99 for sanitizing / per passage. It added up to several hundred dollars and their advertising was $49. Unreal. BEWARE of "Blow and Go" companies outthere. Lowe's on the other hand was extremely professional. No up-charge, no up-sale. Very transparent from start to finish. Their technician Mike was very throurough, friendly and experienced. I highly recommend Lowe's Air Duct Cleaning Services to everyone!!!

    My family was having bad allergies throughout the year and didn't know why. I reading a few blogs and forums, I realized one of the most common issues to indoor allergies is from dust build up in the ducts! I looked around the house checking our vents and sure enough every single one was dirty. I called OM Air Duct Cleaning and they came to my house within that week. The owner was friendly, and explained everything that he was doing. He gave me a free quote and offered great prices. So I agreed to a full 2-floor duct cleaning with installation of allergy prevent air duct filters. The men wasted no time and grabbed a few tools from the truck, revved up the vacuums and started cleaning out the ducts. They went through the house and carefully and thoroughly all throughout the house and finished in a couple of hours. The vents looked so new after they cleaned it and it wasn't full of dust anymore. After a few days, my whole family realized how much a difference they felt after having the ducts clean. No more indoor allergies and our furnace even thanked us for it. All-in-all I had a great experience with OM Air Duct Cleaning and I'll be using them again!

    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.
