Frequently Asked Questions
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) maintains that a total ventilation system cleaning should be performed every 3-5 years. Customers who have the following might also want to consider more frequent cleanings:
- Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander
- Water contamination or damage
- Residents with allergies or asthma
- After home renovations or remodeling
- Prior to occupancy of a new home
We offer flat rate pricing on all of our services. There are no hidden fees and no surprises. We will give you a price prior to performing any work so you know exactly the cost of service.
Depending on the amount of contamination and its location, energy consumption could be increased. If the fan blades, evaporator coil or other control components of the system are heavily contaminated, the system may have to run much longer to cool or heat the occupied space, wasting a lot of energy.
Your central heating and air conditioning system is the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth and dust. As these air contaminants collect on the motor and fan, they are redistributed throughout your home, which can directly affect the air you breathe, making duct cleaning that much more important.
Our cleaning method is labor intense and each system is thoroughly cleaned and inspected prior to restarting your system so we have never had a problem with “dirt blowing out the vents” after a cleaning. There is no mess left on the completion of the job.
Air duct cleaning costs vary depending on the type of building and number of HVAC systems present. When it comes to effective duct cleaning, it’s more beneficial to pay for a professional duct cleaning than to resort to a cheap alternative.
The typical single-family home’s air duct system takes between two to four hours to clean with a crew consisting of at least two technicians. Older homes and those with pets may take longer to clean. Newer homes, town-homes, and condominiums may take less time to clean!
Research has indicated that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems act as a contaminant collection source. These contaminants include fungi, bacteria, dust particles, allergens, and other materials. Mr. Duct’s expert technicians will remove all of the contaminants from your HVAC system, bringing you one step closer to improved indoor air quality.
