||How can I tell
if my ducts need to be cleaned?
||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.
||How much will
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,
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.

||How long does
a duct cleaning take?
to the EPA document
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

job will usually take two workers

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.
||Why can't the
ducts just be cleaned from the
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.
