Clean air ducts are an important component to having a clean home, and therefore it can be a great idea to clean your vent system. For maintenance purposes, we recommend that your air duct and vent system be cleaned every 3-5 years, depending on a variety of factors including your personal preference, number of pets in the household, cleanliness of the household, and other activities that affect indoor air quality, such as smoking inside. Air duct cleaning is also a good idea at the completion of a remodeling project, when moving into a new home, or if you experience increased allergies.
To be honest, the price was much higher than I expected or planned for. But I was impressed by the thorough attention to detail, even in the inspection made before quoting a price, and the professionalism and devotion to quality service that I could see in Mr. Stewart and his team. I suspect that others may have convinced me to add services for an additional cost that were included with his service, so I decided to go for the quality he offered and we were very happy with his detailed and thorough cleaning. The tobacco odor removal in a separate residence was the only thing that didn't seem to be as effective as expected but he came back to try again so I appreciate that. Overall, we're very happy with the cleaning and highly recommend this company.
Of the cleaning services in which we are proud to be specialists, air duct cleaning is by far the one that requires the most trust between the consumer and the air duct cleaning service provider. There are many unscrupulous air duct cleaning companies purporting to be something they are not, many advertisements using unrealistic scare tactics, and of course bait and switch tactics are prevalent in the industry. You need to feel confident in the professionalism of the firm you hire to clean your air ducts because you are asking someone to clean the inside of your duct work, where it can be difficult to see the results of the job.
If your air ducts have been damaged, you’ll need to replace them. The national average air duct replacement cost is $150-$280, which may not include materials. Factors such as duct material, labor, location of ducts and linear feet of ductwork will all affect your final costs. Labor costs will vary based on how accessible the ducts are and what material your ducts are made of. The least expensive duct material is a flexible, non-metallic ducting that costs approximately $1-$2 per linear foot. Flexible aluminum is generally more expensive and stronger than non-metallic ducting. Stainless steel ducting is the strongest, the least flexible (meaning installing it typically has higher labor rates), and usually the most expensive. An average price for air duct replacement could range between $35 and $55 per linear foot, including basic materials and labor. A typical single-family home has 6-10 duct runs; replacing or installing one duct run could average $150-$250 for labor.
As your dryer vent becomes clogged, drying time gradually increases. While you may not notice the extra few minutes at first, the drying cycle will continue to take longer as the vents become more clogged until you eventually have to run a second cycle in order to dry clothes completely. You can reclaim your time that would be lost to extended or repeated drying cycles by having a Dryer Vent Wizard clean your vents!

If you’ve been noticing more dust around the house or worsened allergies, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned. While it’s recommended to change your air filters regularly, professional air duct cleaning only needs to be done once every five to seven years. More effective and prolonged results from air duct cleaning can be attained by having a whole-home air cleaner installed.
