How often do I need to clean my air ducts and dryer vents?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, NADCA, recommends cleaning your air ducts every three to five years. However, there are several circumstances where a household or business should consider more frequent cleanings, such as:
- You own a pet that sheds hair or dander;
- You or anyone in your family have frequent allergies or suffer asthma;
- You have small children or elderly individuals in your home who are more likely to get sick;
- Your ductwork has been damaged by fire, water, or other natural disasters such as hurricanes and tornadoes;
- You have recently remodeled or renovated your home;
- You think there may be mold or mildew in the air ducts;
- Your HVAC system is old and inefficient;
If any of these situations apply to you, then your home can definitely benefit from regular air duct and dryer vent cleanings. Professional air duct and dryer vent cleaning can help improve indoor air quality, increase the cleanliness of your home, and keep your family from getting sick.
Why choose professional air duct and dryer vent cleaning? Can’t I just do it myself?
The fact is, most people don’t have the right tools or know how to properly clean air ducts. If you try to do it yourself, you could damage your HVAC system and cause a fire hazard. As a result, you may even end up spreading mold throughout your home if you don’t take proper precautions.

What are the health benefits of air duct and dryer vent cleaning?
Air duct and dryer vent cleaning are essential to the health and well-being of your family. If not regularly maintained, the air duct system in your home can become like a highway for dust, debris, mold spores, and other contaminants to speed through your home.
Professional air duct cleaning can improve air quality, reduce airborne allergens and make the air in your home cleaner to breathe. To ensure that your air duct system remains in the best possible condition, schedule routine maintenance. An annual dryer vent cleaning is also recommended by leading home safety experts and appliance manufacturers to prevent a fire.
What is furnace cleaning?
Furnace cleaning and duct cleaning involve only the individual components of the furnace itself—like the heat exchanger, the blower motor, the combustion chamber, burners, the fan, etc. These are typically cleaned with high-pressure air and an industrial vacuum.
Furnace cleaning, air duct cleaning, and HVAC system maintenance are important to keep your furnace running efficiently. If you don’t have your furnace cleaned and inspected annually, the performance of your heating system will suffer. And because it takes time to notice these problems, they can lead to more expensive repairs down the road.
What is the difference between decontamination and disinfectant services?
Decontamination and disinfection are two methods that reduce the level of harmful and dangerous organisms on areas or objects by reducing their populations. It can be easy to confuse the two, but there are some key differences:
- Decontamination reduces the number of pathogens in an area or on an object. For example, soap and water, sterilization using an 80% solution, and other similar processes can be used to decontaminate.
- Disinfection kills microorganisms and other pathogens by chemical or physical means. As a result, it is a less-lethal process than decontamination because it destroys most, but not necessarily all, microbial forms.
Clean Air Pro is happy to provide both decontamination and disinfection services to ensure a clean and healthy home. We use a special blend of herbs to safely and effectively remove pathogens and leave each surface clean. As a result, our products are safe for people, pets, and the environment.
How long does it take to complete air duct cleaning?
The total time to clean your air vents and dryer vent line varies based on the size and layout of your home. For example, an average size home can take between three and five hours with two trained technicians.
I’ve never cleaned my air ducts before. Where do I start?
You can start with basic maintenance and inspection. After that, you’ll have everything you need to know about your ducts and vents so that you can make educated decisions on necessary upgrades.
Will you get a lot of dust in my house during the air duct cleaning process?
Not at all! In fact, our equipment creates a negative air pressure throughout your system, removing all dust and debris directly. What’s more, our technicians take special care with your furniture and living space to ensure we leave your home cleaner than when we first arrived.
What happens during an air duct cleaning inspection?
Every home is different, so an air duct cleaning inspection lets us know what work your home will need to better improve indoor air quality, energy consumption, and prevent fire hazards. First, we analyze airflow in your ductwork to find any issues with your HVAC system. Secondly, we then inspect for debris in all vents and ducts, by using a small camera to get a good view of the inside of your air ducts. Finally, we determine what your home will need.
Can I get an estimate before scheduling air duct and dryer vent cleaning?
You absolutely can! After your inspection is complete, our technicians will provide recommendations on what type of air duct cleaning package would be most beneficial to you and a price estimate. Estimates are good for a year after inspection.
