I hired Mike to clean the air vents in my home and he was great. He took the time to service all 11 vents with care and I feel that it was done quite thoroughly. The price was very reasonable and he's a friendly, appropriate guy. I would definitely recommend him for air vent cleaning and I will be hiring him for my carpet cleaning needs in the future as well. Thanks, Mike!

Andy did an incredible job with cigarette smoke abatement, when nothing we did helped. He evaluated the venting of my attic, removed mold up there, and evaluated my crawl space. More impressive is when he discovered the return air vent was just pulling in the dusty and mild air from the attic through the furnace system he immediately found a vent cleaning company and got them to change their schedule to accommodate cleaning my system, furnace, and duct vents. I could not run the furnace until that was completed. This company is thorough and dedicated to helping people know the air within their homes is safe and clean. I highly recommend this company!

They did a fantastic job! I have a large home and All Pro gave me a very fair price. They didn't add on any charges per vent or air intake after they arrived. They give a fair quote and stuck with it. They arrived promptly, explained the process and showed me how they start with clean vacuums. When they were finished, I could see all the gunk in the vacuums that they sucked out of the ducts. It HAS to be better for us to not be breathing in all that dust, dirt and cat hair. I highly recommend All Pro Duct Cleaning.

We hired impact heating to install a new furnace, air conditioning, and heat recovery ventilator as well as all fans, an dryer vents. This company is awesome. they are diligent, and hard working. The price was very fair and Nick is very creative and thoughtful is designing a new system. Ours was a large home with a dual zone furnace and we wanted cold air returns in every room close to the floor. He accommodated all my wishes with no shortcuts. I referred him to another client who also had a great experience. Call Nick you will be happy.

Tony and his guys did a great job! They were thorough, polite, and took the time to explain all they were doing every step of the way (tools used, cleaning process, etc.). They were sure to cover and protect all of our furniture and vacuumed each room as they finished. Our air ducts are super clean and we noticed an improvement in our air quality and circulation immediately. They also cleaned our dryer vent -- it was amazing (and frightening) what they cleared out of our dryer duct, which I clean fairly regularly. They let you know all pricing up front, so there were no $urprises. I would recommend them to anyone looking to have their air ducts or dryer vents cleaned. 5-STARS

J&M Services did air duct cleaning in our home. The Tech showed me a list of coupons on their website, and I was able to get a free dryer vent cleanout and they went thru my entire crawl space area. Was very happy with the duct cleaning 2 person crew! They did find one duct in my crawl that looked like animals had ripped up, and the company took care of the repair that day for what I thought was a very fair price

    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.
