I knew I needed my dryer vent cleaned and contacted Thumbtack for quotes. The quote from Tamas was more than reasonable and included not only the dryer, but also the rest of the ducts in the house. I'm soooo glad I chose M.A.C. Master. Tamas was professional and courteous, letting me know exactly what he was doing, showing me the horrible build up in the ducts, and offering advice on how to improve air flow. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone needing vent/duct cleaning. And I will certainly be calling him in the future myself.

Leo and the folks at Home Pro Air Duct cleaning tried really hard to fix the smell in our ducts. They came out once, did their standard treatment, and the smell did not dissipate so they were kind enough to return with stronger stuff. The smell is a bit better, not totally improved, but we appreciate the effort.

Val worked with me when I asked if he can do our vents for a lower price. However, when I saw the effort and the details he and his employee puts into their work I decided to pay for his original quote. An honest person will still do their best in their jobs even when they are offered a lower compensation. That is a mark of one's true character. After the work was completed, he recommended future services and approaches to completely eliminate the molds he found near the blower of our intake system. I will definitely hire him again to do our duct cleaning and other duct services! Excellent job! Highly recommendable!

Problem with water leaking from drain valve (outside of house). Determined to be caused by pressure relief valve under kitchen sink. Resolved by tightening/turning off relief valve. I am pleased with the final result.

My name is Cheri and I was in a desperate situation when I contacted Renaissance Restoration, Mr.Sanchez assured me he would come by first thing in the morning and fix my wiring problem, well he not only fixed the ceiling fan that was installed by an incompetent idiot from the previous day but he did a lot of extras too. He installed motion detectors, fixed the dangling "Cox" cable, straightened out my duct work and put insulation tape on the joints, made a trip to Home Depot and when my curious gray kitty climbed up his ladder and got stuck in the ceiling Mr.Sanchez even took the time to gently coax her out, this talented man goes the extra mile for his clients and I've already passed out his name and number to 3 of my clients. If you find yourself in trouble like I did please give him a call you'll be relieved and happy you did.

Brian was great to work with. He completed the project (replacing a rooftop HVAC unit in DC) on schedule and was great with communication leading up to the project. His pricing was competitive with other vendors and he offers a two year annual tune-up service and labor warranty with installation (most other vendors only offered one year or less). Brian also repaired an issue with the inside furnace unit at no additional cost to ensure the overall system would work at peak performance for years to come. I've since recommended him to several of our neighbors.

We initially came to thumbtack to find someone that could diagnose our problem with lack of airflow upstairs. He came to me one late evening and noticed immediately what was wrong with my system. He noticed that I needed a new furnace for my unit. I had an old 2 ton unit and he informed me that I needed a 4 ton energy efficient unit to get max airflow. He came in and installed my unit in like 3 hours when initially he said 6 to 8 hours. He was also reasonable with price. After the unit was installed, he noticed that two of my upstairs ducts were either separated or not there. I will get an estimate to that soon. Only problems were: -I usually deal with contractors who have contracts with customers. Ray only used invoices. -Communication could be excessive sometimes but he wanted to be in constant communication with changes. -The old furnace was left by my dumpster. I informed Ray that we don’t like added trash and equipment added to our dumpster area. But, the furnace was gone by the next morning. Overall, Ray is the right person for your AC needs!! And he has the experience to back it up! Will hire again!

Best Company Ever!!! I contacted MJ Home Services originally to have my vents cleaned. John & his team responded immediately and found that I had some mold issues as my home is 62 years old. They completely cleaned my whole system and treated my basement to eradicate the mold. John also did several other jobs for me in addition to the mold treatment including, carpet cleaning, installing a French drain, and many other small jobs which greatly improved our home. John is the Master & is very knowledgeable. He and his team were prompt, courteous, professional, reliable, affordable, and very pleasant to work with throughout the entire process. I highly recommend MJ Services for any air duct or carpet cleaning or any of the services they provide. You will be very happy using this company, which is very rare these days!!! I would give them 10 stars if I could!!!

Moses HVAC, and their team of Matt, provided exceptional service of air duct cleaning.Their work was higher quality and more affordable than other companies that I have previously used. They also found a mistake made by a previous company and fixed it for no extra charge that will save me a lot of money on my electric bill in the future. I could not recommend them strongly enough.

I recently called Safe House to do the duct cleaning in our three story house because of my allergies. They were able to clean all the ducts without dirtying up our house in the process, which I was very happy about. I was originally worried about that, as I've heard some horror stories in the past about different companies. The guys walked me through the whole process, from covering up the vents as they cleaned out the filth, to removing the actual registers and scrubbing/polishing them down. After everything was completely cleaned, they also sanitized all the vents/registers. I never realized how much filth accumulates over the years. They'll show you before and after pictures of everything...it's pretty gross! House smells great and my allergies have calmed down. A+ all around.

Can't say enough good things about HomeSafe! We needed our vents cleaned pursuant to a condo association requirement, and HomeSafe was able to provide same day service. Tony, our technician, was exactly on time and very personable. I appreciated how he took the time to explain each step he was doing, and he showed me before and after photos of each vent. It made me feel confident in his work. Absolutely thrilled with the quality and professionalism of this company!

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.
