A: The duration of the service varies depending on the size of your home, accessibiltiy to the ducts/furnace and the number of ducts tthat need to be cleaned. Typically, Hvac Duct Cleaning for a 1,500 to 2,000 square foot home takes around 4 to 7 hours maybe longer. We do not rush our cleanings!

Q: Can I clean my ducts myself?
A: Tt is generally recommended that you hire a professional HVAC duct cleaning service. Professional cleaners have specialized equipment and expertise to thoroughly clean your ducts without causing damage to the system. Sticking a rotary brush with a shop vacuum does not cut it. We hook a negative air machine to your hvac duct work and put the HVAC system under negative air. As we disturb, whip and clean the ducts the negative air machine sucks the debris from the system, not just move the dust around.
Q: How much does it cost to have my HVAC ducts cleaned?
A: The cost of a duct cleaning service varies depending on factors such as the size of your home, accessibility to the furnace/registers, the number of ducts to be cleaned, and the level of debris, dust and contamination in the system. On average, the cost for a standard cleaning ranges from $500 - $1700 =/-. There are companies that offer $300 cleanings, $99 specials, low flat rates. Those companies are not cleaning your ducts properly. Just think about it. Paying 2 trained technicians to perform the job thoroughly takes about 4-7 hours. At $25 an hour x 2 = $350! Just the overhead for a duct cleaning job can range from $250-$400. Thats not even counting the overhead for the business. Then you have to consider profit!
