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.

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 someone clean your dryer vent?

The national average dryer vent cleaning costs range from $190 to $260. Dryer vent or duct cleaning costs can vary based on where you live in the country and what ductwork repairs may be required. Duct cleaning pros will use a brush cleaning method, a forced air vacuum, or a combination of the two to remove lint and other debris that can collect in your dryer duct, lint trap housing and vent. If left unchecked, this buildup of highly flammable debris can catch fire and lead to a home fire, says the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. In addition to home safety, a great reason for regular cleaning is the money you’ll likely save on energy bills and improved indoor air quality. Pros may offer a lower rate on their dryer duct cleaning costs when you also hire them to clean your entire HVAC duct system. To ensure you’re working with a pro who will keep your home as safe as possible, read their reviews and check whether they have been certified by a reputable organization such as the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) or the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). Many duct cleaning pros will also show you before-and-after photos as proof of the cleaning.

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.

How does duct cleaning work?

Here’s how duct cleaning works in a nutshell:

  • A professional duct cleaner will inspect your ducts.
  • They’ll use vacuums and brushes to clean up dust and debris.
  • And then they’ll seal and clean everything up. 

During the inspection process, the air duct cleaner will also look for cracks or leaks. Depending on what they find, they may also recommend repairs.

Reviews for Fort Worth duct cleaners

I have never hired an HVAC duct system cleaning specialist before today. Samuel and Camar of DFW Air Duct Solutions arrived at the agreed time, inspected and took pictures of every duct, showed me the condition of every duct (the amount of dust and dirt build-up in each duct), cleaned the duct closest to the furnace (thus, inside the plenum) for the basic rate of $97. 00. I have 11 ducts in a 1950 sq. ft. house. They bid $73.00 per duct to deep clean (i.e. brush and vacuum) each of the remaining 10 ducts. This seems reasonable compared to other duct cleaning specialists. However, for financial reasons, I declined cleaning aIl of the 10 ducts and just had 4 ducts cleaned at this time (deep cleaned . . . brushing and vacuuming combined). In addition, the blower in the furnace showed the presence of mold. They sprayed and killed the mold and vacuumed the blower. They also cleaned the furnace wiring. The evaporator coil did not need cleaning. They completed the job in under three hours. I will have these duct cleaning specialists return in May to deep clean the remaining 7 ducts. I am pleased with the quality of their work, and would recommend this company to others. Thank you DFW Air Duct Solutions, LLC, for your service both now and the future. John Q.

We received good service from our tech, the a/c duct vents and dryer vent were cleaned. Even though our home was built 3 years ago, a rip in one our ducts cause light mold and the tech caught it and was able to disinfect and clean it, which we are grateful.

The actual duct cleaning work was done well. There were some up charges on dryer vent cleaning after being initially told it would be a simple and short run. The poor cleanup is the main problem I have. Drywall particles and other debris left behind in multiple places. Vent covers not cleaned off. Dryer lint mess.

I thought the technician did a great job cleaning dryer vent duct but I feel the company should have been upfront about the cost of cleaning my dryer vent. I thought it would cost me about $100 based on the initial quote but I ended paying about $250. Great job, but please be upfront with the prices or provide a price range would be greatly appreciated.

I wanted a quote to clean some existing mold in my ducts. I was told that the mold would just come back in less than a week and that i should purchase a $1700 unit that prevents mold from every returning. I was also told by the technician, that i was stubborn and that everyone one else, with any kind of mold problem, has bought this unit. I was lead to believe that there were alternate solutions for mold in the vents that didn't cost a fortune. I ultimately ended up paying the $55 dollars for them to "dust" my ducts. This was a waste of my time and money and i am still left with a mold problem.
