The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:
Jax Vents philosophy is to provide quality service at affordable rates. By having our dryer vent service done on a yearly basis as dryer manufacturers suggest, we can save our customers more in time and energy than our service costs. This gives our customers real benefits and value, with the convenience and security of knowing their dryer is operating efficiently. We believe that delinting your dryer vent regularly will greatly reduce the potential for fires that exists, help reduce energy consumption, minimize dryer damage, and give our customers greater peace of mind.
There is some disagreement within the industry about the best method for cleaning air ducts.  The two schools of thought are the “negative air” approach and the rotary brush and vacuum approach.  We believe that both air duct cleaning methods can achieve great results in most situations when performed properly by competent technicians.  However, our focus has always been on high quality residential service.  The type of residential duct work commonly used in homes in the South poses unique challenges to duct cleaners because it is soft, flexible, and does not go in straight lines.  Firms using the negative air approach are especially challenged by this type of duct work, as that process was originally designed to work well on the rigid metal duct work commonly found in the North and in large commercial buildings.  The tools used to agitate the duct work in negative air cleaning are very difficult to get all the way into your duct work and can damage the lining of the ducts we find in most residences in the greater Jacksonville area.
We don't compete with service and repair companies, we compliment their existing businesses. Jax Vents is not in the dryer repair business, we are in the vent cleaning business. Most dryer malfunction is caused by lint buildup or inadequate ventilation, and when service personnel can't find a problem with the machine, it is definitely a vent problem that we can solve. We work together with the sales, service, and repair companies to maintain customer satisfaction and everybody wins.
Make certain that the business has the correct devices and sufficient HEPA filtered vacuum power (2,000 CFMs or more), to appropriately clean your duct. Be tired of business that utilizes little vacuum systems that have a little turning brush on completion of a little vacuum hose with a normal air flow of 150 to 300 cfm or less. Appropriate duct cleaning vacuums are damaging air devices with 2,000 CFMs have 8 inches to 14 inches or bigger, vacuum hoses to record big amounts of dust and particles.

Once we have cleaned your entire air duct system, our job is not finished.  All of your vent covers are washed, and before they are replaced we sanitize your system with EnviroCON antimicrobial fogger.  This EPA registered disinfectant is commonly used in hospitals and nursing homes, and works to eliminate mildew and mold in your air ducts.  And, lastly, everything in your home is left exactly as we found it, with no mess left behind!
You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.
2 major problems:They had to return 3 times to fix the installation of a new A/C and then I still had to fix another problem after they left. I also had to explain to the technician the difference between a parallel and series electrical installation when he was installing the automatic cut off switches.They also insist on you buying an annual maintenance package, that can cost up to $ 300 per year, even after they sell you a 10 year parts and labor warranty and if you don't buy it, then they put you at the back of the service list when you call for a repair.Avoid this company. There are so many to choose from that this should not even be on your list.

Make sure that the company has the proper equipment and enough HEPA filtered vacuum power (2,000 CFMs or more), to properly clean your air ducts. Be weary of companies that use small vacuum units that have a small rotating brush on the end of a small vacuum hose with a typical airflow of 150 to 300 cfm or less. Proper air duct cleaning vacuums are negative air machines with 2,000 CFMs have 8 inch to 14 inch or larger, vacuum hoses to capture large quantities of dust and debris.
Use a company that will provide a fair quote, based on the service that they will provide. Be weary of companies that advertise one price for a whole house. Think about it, would a painter paint any size house for one low price? Neither can an air duct cleaner PROPERLY clean the WHOLE house, no matter how many systems or air vents are in the home for one low price.
I was very pleased with the service provided by Jeff. He was very professional, communicated with me very promptly when scheduling and prior to arriving for the appointment and arrived exactly as scheduled. He worked very efficiently and explained everything to me during the process. My laundry room was left spotless after he completed the job. Jax Vents offered the best price of several vendors that I contacted prior to hiring them. I would very strongly recommend Jax Vents for dryer vent cleaning and plan to have them return when the vent needs cleaning again.
Obstructed dryer vents are the source of thousands of house fires every year. People often ignore or don't recognize the signs of a clogged dryer vent, and this seemingly small oversight can have disastrous results, including the loss of life and property. The best way to prevent house fires from starting in or around your dryer is to have your local Dryer Vent Wizard service your machine and ducts.

The indoor air quality in your home may be one of the most important health items for your family. Whether your indoor air is clean or dirty, will determine how the indoor air quality in your home impacts your family as it relates to allergies, pulmonary health, cardiac health, or even dangerous reactions from certain contaminates, such as mold, that may be coming directly out of your home heating and air system. Clean air can promote healthy living and may also minimize reactionary symptoms due to poor indoor air quality. These symptoms would include; persistent cough, runny nose, sleeps deficiency, headaches or fatigue, when in the home. Good indoor air can improve your and your family’s general health substantially, especially those family members that may suffer from allergies or pulmonary reactions, or has experienced cardiac problems.
On the other hand there are a lot more duct cleaning business that will appropriately clean the air system and duct and make use of industrial damaging duct cleaning vacuums with a minimum of 2,000 CFMs of vacuum power and use correct agitating tools to move the contaminants within the duct to be recorded with HEPA filters and consisted of by the duct cleaning vacuum devices.

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Wondering why a chimney sweep company also specializes in dryer vent cleaning? Well, a dryer vent is not very different from a chimney; it just carries away moisture and flammable lint instead of smoke and wood debris. Hudson Chimney is trained to clean and install dryer vents. Beyond routinely cleaning out your dryer’s lint trap, it’s recommended that you have your dryer vent professionally cleaned once a year. One good indication that your dryer’s venting system needs cleaning is if it is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry. Call us today to schedule your Florida dryer vent cleaning.

Good, genuine company with lots of experience! I used Elite AC to replace an old unit for my grandmothers house. I don't know much about air conditioning so it was good to work with a trustworthy company who matched our needs from a financial standpoint and installed the unit promptly so my grandmother didn't have to deal with the heat. I worked with Joey who explained our options and helped us make a quick and informed decision. My grandmother loved him and asks how he is doing still. I'm happy he took the time to help us and we will continue to use them for any of our AC needs.

"Over Labor Day weekend at 8pm our A/C system went down -- permanently! Our normal AC company was not working and so we went through the phone book and found Waychoff's! It was unbelievable that one of your employees came to our home at 10PM at no extra charge! On Labor Day the Waychoff's team installed the Trane. They were professional, knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, humorous and extremely likeable. They even brought in cardboard boxes in order to keep my carpet clean. Installation went so fast! They really earned their money, and I assure you that they are not wasting yours. They educated us about the A/C Systems and SEER score. They were great teacher and we learned a lot that day. They assisted us in financing and we were surprised at the monthly payments which were much lower than we expected. The rep from the finance company called us and he was just pleasant and professional as the crew. Later in the week they returned with our 2 rebate forms already filled out and ready to sign! WOW! that kind of service is that! All in all, we are very happy with everything and this house is COLD! We are happy to endorse Waychoff's!"
Okay let me start by saying I went to Abaco air solely off of their Google reviews thinking that they're a trustworthy company. I called them out just to service my AC that was working fine but just wanted to make sure everything was good and clean before the hot summer and to give me correct measurements on the air filter I need for my AC unit which is an odd size. I paid a service fee then and he said everything was good except for a little dirt on the coil but nothing that had to be done right away. Soon after my AC was serviced the AC unit started acting up and wasn't cooling the house during the day. I contacted them a couple days later and they told me they've been having a lot of calls like this and that it's probably just because it's really hot and to just give it time. I said okay I'll call back in a couple days. I've called several times and they said to check this check that and I did everything they said and still continue to not cool down the house. So finally I get somebody back out today and they said the AC unit was froze up and that it was filthy dirty and needed to be clean and the freon need to be charged so not only did I have to pay another service fee I had to pay $350 to clean it $250 for Freon and $100 service fee mind you I just paid a service fee three weeks prior of $120. I feel like had it been serviced the first time correctly I wouldn't have had to pay the $250 freon and another $100 service fee not to mention my electricity bill is going to be extremely high because the AC has been running nonstop trying to cool the house down. I'm trying to do all this from a hospital that I've been in for the past seven weeks so I go on Google to find a trustworthy company thinking I found one and then this happens. I have other children at home and I'll be bringing my husband home from the hospital soon so I have to make sure that the house is cool. I had no choice but to pay it. I will never use Abaco again and will tell all my friends to stay clear of them. When I contacted them about what's happened all I get is it must have been a miscommunication. Well that miscommunication cost me well over $400 more then what I should've had to pay to begin with. I paid $120 the first time they came out and $695 today. That's a lot of money for somebody that hasn't worked in seven weeks and will be out for another 30 days and my husband hasn't work because he's in the hospital from a motorcycle accident and won't be able to work again for a long time if ever. I'm not trying to get the job done free but feel like I could've avoided the additional costs had it been done right the first time. It kinda makes me think they did something the first time to have to come back and charge me a ridiculous amount to fix it because they know people need their AC right now as hot as it is outside. Lesson learned I will never use Abaco again.
These are business who are more thinking about getting your cash, through deceptive ads or mailers than really doing the work appropriately and enhancing your indoor air. The really even worse thing you can do is to employ a business that might really develop more of an indoor air issue for you and your household due to incorrect cleaning or usage of inferior duct cleaning vacuums without any more vacuum power than a big Wet/Dry vacuum with a turning brush connected at the end of the hose, or make use of a who is not effectively accredited or accredited to clean air systems. Be specifically suspicious of business promoting the low one cost duct cleaning company, it’s like offering one cost to paint the outside of your house whether it be 1 story or numerous stories high.
Knowing that your home is clean is a great feeling. Knowing that your home air is clean is an even better feeling. Having your air ducts cleaned regularly is key to making your home safer and more comfortable for you and your family. Since we breathe in around 10,000 liters of air a day, the quality of the air in our homes greatly affects our quality of life. So we mean business when we say that air-duct cleaning is a must. Air duct cleaning involves the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, such as the supply and return air ducts of your system. It’s just a matter of time before HVAC components get contaminated with pollen, dust particles, mold (if moisture is present), and other debris. These can bring on allergy symptoms and affect your health in other negative ways, so make air-duct cleaning a priority for the healthiest home possible.
