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.

I cannot say enough about my interaction and servicing by 2 Cool Guys Duct Cleaning, adding value and punctuality alongside of their work quality, professionalism and responsiveness! I have used other vent servicing company in San Antonio before, and gave that company the benefit of the doubt, which was a costly mistake, one that required rework-- there was visible dust in multiple areas after the work and other, unmentioned company was resistant to address the issue. This WAS NOT my experience with 2 Cool Guys Duct Cleaning, my vents, floors, and surrounding areas was cleaned right the first time--even with my blowers blowing air, I am not finding dust! 2 Cool Guys Duct Cleaning provided me a fair estimate on the work based on a phone consult before the service, provided me windows when they could service my home, and because they did a thorough job understanding the problem and needs from my perspective, they did not try to up sell me nor was there a price increase on site. The vents were cleaned and they cleaned the area around the site, something that is becoming rare. 2 Cool Guys have earned my business and this review, and would highly recommend you consider them for your vent cleaning needs. Forgot to mention, they also clean dryer vents and there work cleared restrictions on my hose, allowing me to turn the dryer on once, rather than running the dryer multiple times to dry my clothes. Best and thank you 2 Cool Guys Duct Cleaning!

The company members were very helpful and thoroughly explained their process. They did a great job cleaning up the workspace. They even took vents out of the apartment and cleaned them up. The vents looked almost brand new once they were finished. I have photos of what they looked like before 2 Cool Guys went to work on them. The were helpful in accommodating my schedule as well. I would recommend hiring them to clean out your air ducts.

Robert and his team were on time and very professional. I got a price quote over the phone that included a veteran discount, the price was reasonable and did not vary when the work was done. Robert explained the process and kept me informed throughout the service. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a whole house duct cleaning.

Awesome experience! They were able to come out the day I contacted them, quickly figured out where the blockage was and thoroughly cleaned the entire dryer duct line from roof to laundry room. They were extremely courteous, wore masks indoors and explained everything as they went along. We will definitely have them back out for more maintenance work again!
