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 Leesburg duct cleaners
Thumbtack Customer
I knew I needed my dryer vent cleaned and contacted Thumbtack for quotes. The quote from Tamas was more than reasonable and included not only the dryer, but also the rest of the ducts in the house. I'm soooo glad I chose M.A.C. Master. Tamas was professional and courteous, letting me know exactly what he was doing, showing me the horrible build up in the ducts, and offering advice on how to improve air flow. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone needing vent/duct cleaning. And I will certainly be calling him in the future myself.

First off it's been about 11 years since I got my air ducts cleaned. I was noticing some dust particles on my bed and I needed to call someone to check out my vents. After 5 quotes sent to me on thumbtack and comparing price and reviews I decided on picking integrity duct cleaning. They did such a great job. Isaac and Roberto came out took their time and explained the process. Showed me and sent me before and after photos and also cleaned my dryer vent. They cleaned my vents with a huge vacuum and used an agitator brush to break up the dirt accumulated. Each duct went through the agitator/vacuuming multiple times till they were done. The price was extremely fair. I'll definitely use them in the future.

True Ducts was awesome. I called them out because I had water in my dryer and I had never seen that before. I looked it up on YouTube and knew I needed help quick. True Ducts was to the rescue. There were two gentlemen that came to my home. They immediately assessed the situation and suggested that I get a deep cleaning after making the assessment. The owner gave me an awesome discount and then they went to work showing me at every stage of the process what was going on in my ducts. I was really grossed out to say the least. I have hardwood floors throughout out my home so I will need to go over them again after they are done doing the cleaning. My dryer was probably the worst thing ever. I just thank God that he sent this company my way. Thanks again True Ducts you guys are the best!!!!!

Tomas and Joseph did an outstanding job of cleaning and sanitizing the ducts on my dual HVAC system. I also have 2 dryers and they cleaned both vents, too. They were so clogged, they spared me the risk of a house fire! Extremely well priced and excellent results, I'm very pleased! :)

Outstanding experience with Home Pro - Air Duct Cleaning. They were punctual. very professional, tidy, and articulate in explaining the plan they were going to take... This all spoke to the intangibles I look for in any contractor we hire. Beyond the intangibles, they provided poof of the state prior, and also post service. Seeing the results, it was clear they did a very thorough job, and the result (documented in pictures shown to us) demonstrated there attention to detail and flawless execution. Net is, they have it both... Intangibles and the execution. We could not be happier with our experience and would highly recommend them as a result. They will be doing all duct cleaning services for our home in the future.
