Tamas was excellent from beginning to end. Showed up earlier than appointment time, started work immediately while at the same time explaining the entire process for a novice like myself. Showed me the pre and post statuses of my ducts, advised me on the type of vent covers to look for if I wanted to replace the ones in bad shape, (some of them had rust stains) washed them all up to make them clean of mold and other debris. He is a pro on what he does and will definately recommend him to anyone seeking to get an excellent duct cleaning job! Great value for the money you pay. Thanks Tamas!

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!

Working with Carlos was a dream. He's easy to contact and is prompt with appointments. He did an exceptional job of cleaning up the mold which came from a pipe leak. He then returned after the pipe work to drywall the ceiling and paint. We cannot tell where the leak was nor that part of the ceiling was replaced. Excellent job!

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.

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!!!

We needed our dryer vents cleaned as we know one of the number one causes of fire are clogged dryer vents. We chose to use "Breathe Easy Solutions" we are so glad we did. The customer service was excellent! They were very efficient and thorough, as Caitlyn was cleaning the vents inside and out I could see all of the lint and debris coming out, it was very good to know that our dryer vents were thoroughly cleaned. We could Breathe Easy no pun intended. They came and gave us a free estimate and the prices were the cheapest around they beat the other competitors prices and did an excellent job as well. We liked them so much that we scheduled to have all of our vents and air ducts cleaned as well. We are very happy with his company and will be using them again for future services. Kudos!

Marcus & his team did a wonderful job painting all four floors of my townhome! I had two colors, one he had to mix himself. He was so careful to ensure it was mixed properly for each wall. Marcus also went out of his way to fix many things - dents in the wall from the banister placements, caulking issues, & they also painted all of the molding that needed touch-ups. I would definitely hire Marcus & his team for any future work!

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.

CJ was a wonderful and patient technician. He knew what he talked about. We had too many duct elbows that caused the big problem. He solved the problem and spend a quality time (no rush no pressure). The cost was really not expensive. Thank you CJ

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.

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.
