What is air duct cleaning?
The air duct cleaning is a simple but important maintenance activity for your home. It is the efficient and mess free vacuuming of your air duct system to promote cleaner air circulation.
If not properly installed, operated, and maintained, your duct system can become contaminated with dust, pollen, and other particles. Moisture from leaks or faulty seals can also encourage microbiological growth such as mold. The presence of dust, particles, and mold can severely impact the air quality of your home, requiring the entire system to be professionally cleaned.
Do I have to have my entire system cleaned?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends cleaning the entire duct system, as failure to clean it can result in re-contamination of the entire system as air cycles through it 6-7 times per day. Washing only half a dish or mopping one corner of your kitchen floor wouldn’t do much to improve the overall cleanliness of your home. The same principle applies to your HVAC system.
How can I tell if my AC ducts need to be cleaned?
The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned if:
• There is visible mold growth in your air ducts
• Your ducts are infested with vermin
• There is significant build up of dust/particles in the ducts
• You notice frequent dust and particles in the air
• You notice a musty smell when the furnace is on
You might also experience a consistently dusty home, wake up with unexplained allergy-like symptoms or stuffiness, or spot black filtration lines around the edges of your carpeting. If you have family members who suffer from allergies or pets in your home, it is especially important to focus on your home’s air quality. Dust and particles collect naturally over time; it is estimated that 40 pounds of dust accumulates in a six-room home over the course of a year. Consequently, it is wise to have your ducts regularly cleaned for the health and safety of your home.
Are there health benefits to having my ducts cleaned?
Dirty ducts can exacerbate pre-existing health concerns, including respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders, and environmental allergies. Tests have shown that air duct cleanings can remove over 50% of the dust in your home. The removal of these potentially harmful contaminants in your air duct system and air vents can potentially improve the air quality of your home, improving your family’s overall respiratory health.
Will freshly cleaned air ducts reduce my utility bills?
Yes! Clean ducts save energy. According to the US Department of Energy, 25-40% of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in your heating and cooling system can shorten the life of your HVAC system by causing it to work overtime. Excessive contamination wears down your filters and increases the amount of particles allowed into the air over time. Additionally, clean and healthy systems are less likely to break down and have an overall longer lifespan than systems that are allowed to degrade without proper cleaning.
How long will it take to have my air ducts cleaned?
Type of home, accessibility of the duct work, level of contamination, and length of time since last cleaning will all impact how long the cleaning service takes. Most average, homes take approximately 1 ½ to 3 hours to clean. For a thorough inspection and a specific time estimate, please call us at 615-856-3610.
What will it cost me to have my air ducts cleaned?
The EPA indicates that duct cleaning services typically range in cost from $450 to $1000 depending on services offered, the size of the heating and cooling system, region, level of contamination, and type of duct material.
Our prices are traditionally determined based on how many vents and returning valves For a free estimate of our air duct cleaning services, please call 615-865-3610 or visit our Contact Us page to submit a quote request online.

How long before I will need to have my ducts cleaned again?
Most middle TN area homes’ air ducts will stay clean for 2 to 5 years with proper filter installation and usage. Additionally, the cleaner you keep your heating and A/C ducts, the less often you will need professional air duct servicing. The EPA recommends the following for keeping your ducts clean between professional visits:
• Use the highest efficiency air filter recommended by the manufacturer of your heating and cooling system
• Change filters regularly
• Remove dust and vacuum your home regularly
What can I do to prepare for my cleaning service?
Make sure there is space cleared around your HVAC system and the duct registers inside your home. After that, leave it all to us! While our technicians work, you’ll want to relax somewhere to ensure your safety and to allow the technician to finish the job as efficiently as possible.
What can I expect the day of my scheduled service?
For your safety, our employees will always present you with one of our business cards prior to looking around your property or beginning the job. Our employees are not contracted laborers, so they will arrive at your home in marked company vans and uniforms that indicate our company logo.
Our team is hand-picked for efficiency and professionalism, ensuring a thorough inspection of your home and a detailed addressing of your particular cleaning needs. Our staff goes through an extensive residential and commercial HVAC unit duct cleaning training period before they are hired to ensure your complete satisfaction with every job. Once the work is started, our employees will work quickly and efficiently to complete the job without stopping.
We are committed to quick and efficient work that interrupts your day as little as possible.
Will you get a lot of dust in my house during the cleaning process?
No, our high-powered HEPA vacuum creates negative air pressure that ensure all dust and particles are removed directly into our HEPA machine and not into your home.
Will any harmful chemicals be used in the cleaning of my duct work?
No, our company cleaning is chemical-free. Our company uses only state of the art equipment manufactured by Abatement Technology.
