Top Duct Cleaning related questions

It’s always good to replace the filter for all your air ducts every three months. Also, look out for dust accumulating on the grilles and check whether the airflow is consistent from room to room. If you can hear noises from your air ducts, it might be time to hire a duct cleaner.

The specialised equipment needed to clean air ducts (e.g. heavy-duty vacuum) can often be expensive. Plus, the skills needed to take apart and reassemble parts, along with the correct tools mean that it usually makes better sense to hire a duct cleaning professional for the job.

Yes. Mould and mildew are common bio-organisms that can grow in air ducts. Toxic mould has been shown to cause a variety of physiological and psychological effects, from respiratory problems like asthma to irreversible effects, such as dementia.
As a rule of thumb, air ducts should be cleaned every 3-5 years. But this will vary depending on how often and how heavily they are used.
The typical single-family home’s air duct system takes between 2-4 hours to clean with a crew of 2+ technicians. 

What does a duct cleaning service include?

Duct cleaners work to ensure that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems in your home or commercial space are clean and operating efficiently. Regular duct cleaning services include:

Air conditioning and central heating duct cleaning

Air conditioning duct cleaning and heater duct cleaning services both involve the same steps:

- Your cleaner will start by turning off the power connected to your air conditioning or central heating system.

- They’ll unscrew the air duct covers and grilles from your walls and ceilings, before using a brush to clean them thoroughly. Your cleaner may also use a cleaning agent if the grilles are especially filthy.

- They’ll use a powerful, heavy-duty vacuum with a long hose to reach into the crevices of the air duct and remove any mildew, mould, dirt, and debris. Alternatively, some duct cleaners may blow pressurised air directly into the system to remove any remaining dirt.

- Your duct cleaner will sanitise and deodorise your air conditioning or heating system before switching the power back on.

Kitchen duct cleaning

Kitchen ducts are usually connected to an extraction system or a range hood. They need regular cleaning to break down grease along with other contaminants. To clean this area: 

- Your duct cleaner will first turn off the power that connects to the ventilation system.

- They’ll unscrew the extractor fan and use a heavy-duty vacuum to clean out the duct.

- They’ll clean the vent and fan using a suitable cleaning agent.

- Your cleaner will clean the outside vent by unscrewing it from the wall and washing it with the same cleaning agent.

- They will re-attach all the individual parts and switch the power back on.

Filter cleaning and changes

Filter changes are an important part of duct cleaning because the air filter captures debris, pollen, mould, and bacteria from the air, ideally stopping most of it from travelling into the duct. Sometimes cleaning the filter will be sufficient, but most duct systems need filter changes at least once a year. 

Depending on whether your air-conditioning system uses a furnace or forced air, the filter will be attached to the air conditioning unit or grille respectively. Kitchen duct filters trap the grease and oil from cooking and should be replaced regularly, as well. This filter is usually found in the hood or ventilation grille. 

To change the filter: 

- Your cleaner will first turn off the power and clean the area surrounding the filter.

- They’ll access the filter and remove it. If the filter is washable, they’ll use soap and water (hot water for kitchen duct filters) to wash out debris. If it’s not washable or the filter is due for a change, they’ll replace with a new one.
