Q

Can I really get my ducts cleaned for under $10 a vent?

A From our investigative survey, we say NO! Click here to find out why low-cost duct cleaning can cost you more in the end.
Q How can I tell if my ducts need to be cleaned?
A There is no simple way to tell and certainly can't be done over the phone. The best thing to do is call DUCTBUSTERS® for a evaluation of your system. If it doesn't need to be cleaned, we'll tell you. If it does, we'll be glad to give you an estimate while we're there.
Q How much will it cost?
A There are numerous factors that go into figuring the price of a duct cleaning including the age of the system, the ductwork type (i.e., metal internally lined, fiberglass, flexible), accessibility, known problems, and size of the home. Because of this, we recommend that you have someone come and look at your system before giving you a price. DUCTBUSTERS® will give you a quote and our trained estimator will be glad to explain our price to you.
Q How long does a duct cleaning take?
A According to the EPA document (#402-K-97-002), it should take between 6 and 8 hours to thoroughly clean your cooling and heating system and ductwork -- less than that and you're probably not getting what you're paying for. A DUCTBUSTERS® job will usually take two workers between 6 and 10 hours to complete.
Q What procedure is used?
A DUCTBUSTERS® uses state-of-the-art equipment and tools to clean your system. Depending on the type of ductwork, it will be cleaned using the tool that gives the best results. For example, metal ductwork can be cleaned aggressively using whips or brush tools that are designed to whip around and "scrub" the duct surface. However, these should never be used on fiberglass ductboard as the fiberglass would be torn loose and end up in your living environment. However, in order to insure that the fiberglass duct surface is as clean as possible, we hand vacuum it.
Q Why can't the ducts just be cleaned from the vent openings?
A As described in the previous answer, there are special tools for each type of ductwork. However, these tools are only designed to reach 10 to 15 feet into the duct system. Most ducts are much longer than that and the dirtiest part of the duct is farthest from the vent opening. Therefore, if we were to only clean from the vent opening, the dirtiest part of the duct would remain dirty.
