What is the cost for ventilation duct cleaning?

Is duct cleaning a waste of money? How much does it cost to clean ventilation ducts? Is it really necessary? So many questions for a simple answer.

The answer is no, you’re not throwing your money out the window when you decide to maintain your ventilation ducts. Who wants to have dirty ducts?

On the contrary, homeowners should consider cleaning their air ducts when they notice visible signs of dust accumulation, airborne particules, changes in respiratory or allergy symptoms, or if it has been several years since their last cleaning.


How long should one wait before contacting a professional for duct cleaning?

Regular cleaning is crucial, but when we say “regular,” we don’t mean every week!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that you should not clean your ventilation ducts on a monthly basis. Ideally, specialists in the field suggest cleaning every 3-5 years, depending on the level of use of your ducts.

In any case, there are telltale signs that your heating and air-conditioning ducts need cleaning.


What are these telltale signs?

  • Mold

Visible mold growth can cause major problems for your HVAC system, especially in humid climates. If you notice mold on the ducts, it’s important to have them cleaned promptly. An HVAC technician should also identify the underlying cause of mold growth and treat it.

  • The presence of vermin

If vermin, such as rodents, have entered your air ducts, they can build nests that block airflow. An HVAC professional should be called in to clean up nests, droppings and other materials associated with pests, and plug the entrance used by animals to enter the system.

  • Amounts of dust accumulation

Excessive accumulation of dust and debris in the system is another common reason why many homeowners decide to call in technicians for deep duct cleaning. A thorough duct cleaning can remove many excess dust particles and improve the indoor air quality quality you breathe.

From a monetary point of view: Why clean your ventilation ducts?

In terms of investment, regular duct cleaning can help extend the life of your heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system by reducing wear and tear and avoiding costly repairs.

Indeed, the build-up of dust, debris and other contaminants in the ducts can clog filters, leading to overheating of your system and increased wear and tear on components. At the same time, the risk of unpleasant odours is increased!

By cleaning the ducts, you can avoid these problems and extend the life of your ducts.

What’s more, duct cleaning can also help improve your home’s energy efficiency. When ducts are clogged, airflow can be impeded, which can make your system less efficient and increase your energy consumption. By regularly cleaning the ducts, you can improve airflow and reduce your energy consumption, which can help you save money on your energy bill in the long run.
