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 recently used Ducts and Such for vent cleaning in my new 4 bedroom home. Milton,with another arrived as scheduled and completed the work as quoted. They provided before and after pictures of the dirt and grime, as well as evidence of buildup from creatures, including droppings. The difference was astounding. After the cleaning, so much of the dirt and buildup was gone and I feel much safer and more comfortable knowing that I am not breathing in toxins. I highly recommend Ducts and Such for their efficient and thorough service.

So glad I contacted Ducts and Such. From my initial request for a quote to their departure, Milton was amazing! He quickly provided me a fair quote, arrived on time and explained things throughout the process. He took before/after pictures to show me his work and I think his father left my house cleaner than when they arrived! They worked quickly and throughly and my house feels so much cleaner! I’m so please to have found them and highly recommend them for anyone who needs their air ducts/dryer vent cleaned out - you won’t be disappointed!!

Ducts and Such LLC is, by far, the BEST company I have hired for dryer vent cleaning services. Milton and his colleague truly saved me from so much headache! I had previously hired another company to clean my dryer vent and they managed to leave the vent in worse condition. I was not confident in the other company’s ability to resolve the issue so I moved on. Im so glad I did because I found Ducts and Such. They were able to schedule me within the same day and their price was beyond reasonable! They did a thorough inspection of the previous company’s work to ensure no additional damage was caused and provided me with pictures and videos of the vent condition before, during, and after. Milton is very knowledgable and he took the time to explain the methods used at the time of scheduling and throughout the cleaning process. He went above and beyond to ensure there was the proper exit velocity of the air leaving the vent. Ducts and Such services are of a VERY high standard and quality and I highly recommend!

Milton and his dad are very hardworking people. Appreciated the fact they they sent me before and after pictures of our ducts. They took their time in ensuring the job is done and they cleaned up after themselves. Milton is super responsive and gave us a great price for the service.

Ducts and Such, LLC were great with their service, and for the value they went above and beyond. Made sure each item they had to move were back in place. Vacuumed every dust particle, left the house clean. Definitely recommend, and I don't think anyone else will be at them at value and their quality of service.

Roberto and Eric showed up on time and did a nice job. They were curtious with us and effective with their work. Unfortunately, one of the vents was not replaced properly after the duct cleaning. We contacted Roberto about this and he offered to come back on another day to look at it. As of one week later, he has not come back. The air quality in our home has improved remarkably, however, and for that we are grateful.

We had a wonderful experience with Val and our technician, Zach. Even though it was the holidays, Val replied very promptly and helped me set up an appointment the very next day. Zach came at the beginning of our allotted time window and called me half an hour beforehand. He was extremely friendly, very professional, and worked very hard and went out of his way to make sure our duct cleaning was perfect. Even though it was late evening, he did not rush and was extremely thorough. He continually gave us updates, and my family and I were very impressed with the quality of his work and expertise! There was no disruption for us (we all work from home), which was a huge plus. Due to this being our first duct cleaning, he suggested some more services (but was not pushy at all), which we agreed should be done and the additional price was absolutely justified. We are extremely pleased with Zach’s work and look forward to hiring them again next time!

I needed duct cleaning for a 2 bedroom/ one floor condo. She gave me a rate over the phone, that one system with unlimited vents was $169. First, the guy was almost 2 hours later than his window time. Next he added $95 because of the intake vent. I didn't have a good feeling about it, so I told him I didn't want to go forward with the service. Then he proceeds to tell me that it's$39 for coming out. I told him I was not paying that. And then he left. Not hiring them again.

Mr. Galambos was punctual, professional, and highly knowledgeable in his areas of expertise. We had our dryer components, vent, and entire duct cleaned on 04/06/2016. Mr. Galambos showed up as scheduled and began working. He kept us informed during the entire process, and kept all areas clean. He went above and beyond our expectations and even performed additional work at no extra cost, which we thought was very generous and kind! We highly recommend Mr. Galambos and plan to use him in the future. We wish him great sucess in his business venture, and knowing how well we were treated as customers, we're confident that he'll be tremendously successful. Thank you again! Stefan & Olga G.

Val completed the cleaning of my Air ducts yesterday and did a great job. His communication skills through the site and outside the site are fantastic. He called when he was 25mins out and arrived within the timeframe that was specified. Val informed me of everything he was going to do before starting and even gave me helpful recommendations on some things he noticed. He changed my air filter out for me as well. I found his price very competitive and in the range for the quality service that was provided. I would 100% recommend that you hire The Best Air Quality & Restoration!
