Carl is a professional through and through. He is upfront about costs and within minutes of posting to tumbtack I had an appointment for just hours later. He went above and beyond by addressing a second problem that he had discovered during the visit to ensure that a return visit at a later date wouldn't be necessary (found debris in the hose connecting the shut off valve to the toilet cleaned that out and proceeded to clean out debris that was trapped in faucets and a shower head). I would recommend him to friends and family and I would certainly use him again if a similar problem arose.

AJ did an excellent job of removing the snow and icicles on my roof. He came to do an estimate quickly after I contacted him, and completed the job the next day. He was prompt, knowledgeable and did a great job cleaning up the ice afterwards. I will definitely be hiring him again in the future!

Erik Johnsen did a Superb Job. He recognized areas that needed work which the other estimators didn't and was very reasonable on cost. Communication was excellent. He also adapted very well to snags from the original plan. Areas completed were plumbing, drywall, tile, painting, removing & replacing toilet & sink and pressure testing. I was very satisfied.

He did duct cleaning. He showed up on time on a Sunday morning. He didn't mind that I watched him. In fact, he was very good at explaining everything he did. He did a really nice job of cleaning around my furnace also. I would recommend him.

Kevin and his team did a great job on our roof. Consistent and solid installation. Every day the job site was cleaned up and organized for the next day's work. Price was the best in the neighborhood for the same high quality shingles.

Originally I need to have a part replaced on my VERY OLD boiler (it would not light). Dan was able to quote me a cleaning service and let me know he would look the system over to see what needed to be repaired. After the cleaning, Dan was able to easily spot the issue, although no parts had been made for my system for, most likely, a very long time. Dan hooked us up with an upgraded part, which also improved the safety of the unit. Prices were VERY reasonable and he is very service oriented! I had no issue with leaving my doors unlocked so he could get the work done while I was away. We will be using his services in the futre!

Fabulous people to work with. They went to repair a faucet and notified me that my tenants had a problem they had not brought to my attention. There was a pipe that had frozen and there was hot water running to melt it. Unfortunately, the sink gasket was not working so it was leaking on the inside of the cabinet. He repaired the faucet and then set a date to come back to do the other job. Very reasonable. Tenants are very pleased witht he work. I will definately be getting more work done by this man.

Nick Fordley and crew came to my house to do some work that was needed. We had our driveway sealed and siding done. He was on time and very professional. They cleaned up all debris as well. The whole job took only a couple of days and we will be using them to put a new roof on our house in a couple of weeks.

Ray recently did a wallpaper strip and paint job for us. He and his assistant did great work, arriving on time, working diligently and carefully, and cleaning up each day with a thorough cleanup at completion. They were always courteous and cheerful, showing a lot of attention to detail and pride in their work. The project took a little longer than Ray expected, partially because of some add-ons, but the price was very reasonable. Would definitely hire him again.

Noah and his partner, Jim arrived on the date and time we agreed upon. He looked at the work I wanted to have done and provided me with a reasonable quote. I had him repair, stain and paint two sets of steps, haul away an old fence, clean out a small gutter and replace a piece of siding. He did a great job and even sought the advice of his dad, an experienced contractor. I will recommend Noah to my friends and use him again. Thanks, Noah, Jim and Dad!

Joe did all the wiring to an addition and remodel of an existing home. His work is as clean and tight as any contractor I have ever used. He was able to completely redo a very messed up electrical panel and get everything organized. I wouldn't call anyone else for my electrical needs. Joe is the real deal!

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.
