Our air duct cleaning technicians check for dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants that are pulled into your HVAC system every time the furnace or air conditioner runs. Over time, they build up inside your ductwork, making your air duct system a breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes, which are then re-circulated through your home, impacting the health and comfort of your family.
Q. Just bought an older house. When we turn on the whole house fan, even with lots of windows open, some air is still drawn through our vents. This causes severe alergy attacks for my wife. The previous owners never had the furnace serviced, weren't the cleanest people, and had several cats. I can only imagine how nast all of the air ducts are. I cleaned out a couple of the reurn ducts and they were nasty with dust and construction debris. I want to have the system cleaned out well. I've gotten several quotes that vary pretty greatly in cost $179-$450. We have a small home with a finished basement that also has heating ducts. I want to choose a service that will do a great job, but have heard that some do a much better job than others. How do I know what to look for, or ask for in a good air duct cleaning service?

On the other hand there are many more air duct cleaning companies that will properly clean the air system and air ducts and use commercial negative air duct cleaning vacuums with at least 2,000 CFMs of vacuum power and utilize proper agitating tools to move the contaminates within the duct work to be captured with HEPA filters and contained by the air duct cleaning vacuum equipment.
Keeping your air ducts clean provides many benefits to you and your home, first and foremost being greatly improved indoor air quality. Dirty air can bog down your home, but a clean air-duct system eliminates these problems. Clean air ducts can also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in the air ducts can lead your heating and cooling system to work harder and shorten its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems use less energy and therefore cost less money out of your pocket. Higher indoor air quality keeps your HVAC system free of corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
"Our electric bill has dropped around seventy dollars a month and that is with the a/c set at 76 degrees. I know it will be lower next summer since I am now taking advantage of the energy start setting the thermostat has. Also our son's coughing at night has stopped and I think it is due in part to the clean air effects filtration system that we got when we purchased the system. We are very happy with our new A/C system. Also we got a refund from Clay electric for having a 17 SEER system and we will get to write some off on our taxed next year."

Negative pressure air duct cleaning is a process in which the ducts are cleaned by hand in concert with compressed air tools to dislodge dirt and debris, which is then vacuumed up and removed. It is considered a superior cleaning method in its efficiency and in preventing dislodged debris from escaping the ducts and contaminating the air in the residence.
Since your dryer has to blow exhaust air out through the ducts, the shorter the ductwork, the better. The total recommended length is normally less than 25 feet from the back of your dryer to the outside vent cover. If the duct has bends and turns, it should be an even shorter distance. The more turns, and the further the distance, the harder your dryer must work to move exhaust air and loose lint. A clogged dryer vent means:
Over time, these contaminates build up inside your ductwork, making your system a breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew, and other microbes, which are then re-circulated through your home, impacting the health and comfort of your family. Those who suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, especially children and the elderly, are vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollution.

I have used Waychoff a couple of times, they have always been prompt and very pleasant to deal with. However, my latest experience is the reason for this review. My a/c went out on Monday and, as usual, I called Waychoff. Wendall came to look at it and fix it. He told me the fan motor needed to be replaced, but I decided to wait. He was truly a joy to have in my house to fix my a/c. Well, on Tuesday, it went out again. As Wendall was off on Tuesday, I decided to wait until today for the unit to be repaired. Once again, he was a joy to have around - he is extremely personable, quick and efficient. Even the dogs loved him! Wendall is an asset to Waychoff!
With your air system and ventilation ducts in a consistent cleaned state, you and those in your household can be in much healthier or at least lessen the signs experienced when the indoor air system was filthy and polluted. In addition to enhancing health associated signs, great indoor air quality in the house can cause much better breathing for much deeper and undisturbed sleep. According to some physicians, enhanced undisturbed sleep can result in a much healthier life in general. While in many cases bad indoor air quality can be connected to asthma.
Nowadays most houses have a central air conditioning system linking air ducting to move conditioned indoor air throughout the house. Gradually, the air system and the linking air ducting will collect dust and other contaminants, which can trigger the blood circulation of unclean and contaminated indoor air through your house. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind health products that we do not believe much about are filthy air system and a duct which could be the unhealthiest product in our house.
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.

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.


My heat pump unit was not working, though the handler and thermostat were fine. I did a little testing myself and determined that the low pressure switch was triggered, then called Waychoff's without having told them anything about what I did (sort of a test to see if they'd try to sell me something I didn't need). Eric showed up 30 minutes early to the appointment (a pleasant surprise), and immediately got to work. Within 10 minutes he told me I had no coolant which triggered the low pressure sensor which meant there was a leak. He inspected the handler inside and then told me he needed to do a nitrogen pressure test to find the leak. 10 minutes after that he showed me the hissing leak in the heat pump, proving that there was in fact a leak. He brazed/welded it shut, re-tested to confirm, then filled the unit with coolant. 60 minutes later I'm back in business and my heat pump is working great. I liked that Eric was 100% honest about the issue and how to fix, and didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need. He also worked with me on the coolant charges, since they tend to mark it up quite a bit. Overall a good experience - I'd use them again for sure. They're a little bit pricey, but for the quality, honesty, and knowledge it's worth paying.
   Jacksonville dryer vent cleaning service technicians are trained to do a complete dryer vent cleaning. If your dryer vent vents out to the roof, most of the buildup is in the "gooseneck" shaped cap sticking out of your roof. That is why it is neccessary for us to either go up on the roof or in the attic and clean the dryer vent cap out before cleaning the rest of the duct. Beware of dryer vent cleaning services that clean the duct only from the laundry room because the brushes or blower will push the lint up to the roof vent and compact it even more.
Under normal conditions, standard-use residential ducts (HVAC systems) should be cleaned every three to five years. Usage, system age and condition, local air quality, and number of residents and pets can affect cleaning frequency needs. Harsher conditions might require cleaning as often as every two years. Obviously, if your system is not functioning properly or the output air quality is bad, consult a professional sooner rather than later to get a proper diagnosis.
We 100% guarantee our dryer vent cleaning service for 1 week (excluding normal accumulation of lint and debris).  This guarantee period is meant to give you adequate time to be sure the job has been done properly and to your satisfaction.  If during this period you are not satisfied with the work that was done for any reason, please contact us so we can make it right.

Air McCall’s comprehensive Duct Cleaning process includes the use of a fogging machine to sanitize your duct system with an all-natural biocide that is harmless to you and your family, and your pets as well. Most companies use a sprayer (not a fogging machine) to try to sanitize the duct system but the sprayers are not effective to treat the entire duct system.
A. First of all, be sure to be there when they do the job! We had our ducts cleaned and got robbed by one of the workers who thought we wouldn't miss a few "minor" personal items. But, even though they didn't believe us at first, we reported it to the police and the company and he got caught! Secondly, ask if they not only remove the vent covers but clean those too. Ask how they clean them and if they use their own cleaning supplies and take the vent covers outside to clean--not in your bathroom or kitchen sinks, using your personal towels. Ask if they clean up the lint that falls into the room with a vacuum cleaner. They should have a crew of at least two people to put the hose in and clean out the vents and one to clean the vent covers and the area around the vents where the lint falls. They should clean the air intake vents and cover also. Some try to sell you on cleaning out your actual AC/HVAC unit coils. I don't see the need for that, but if they insists it is needed, get them to show you the dirt in there that they will be cleaning out. If they can't show you, chances are they will not be able to get in there to clean it. They should change the air filter, but be sure they don't try to sell you some heavy-duty, life-time guarantee filter that supposedly never needs to be replaced. Those don't let enough air flow through. The medium grade ones changed every few months or so work the best. You can buy those at a home improvement store and change them out yourself during the year. Make sure that they don't damage your walls with their big machine, trying to get it down the hall and around corners. They damaged our walls, too and we had to have them plaster and paint it again. Just because the company has a nationally recognizeable name doesn't mean they will do the best job. Often these are owners who hire flunkies to do the work who are thieves and don't care. It would be better to get a local guy that has been doing it a long time and can furnish you with references of satisfied customers.
A comprehensive duct cleaning takes between 3-5 hours, depending upon the size of your house (and much longer for commercial applications). Most companies, especially the ones that have a price that seems to be “to good to be true”, are in and out of your house in less than an hour and may try to upsell you based on “mold” they allegedly find in your air handler.

Keep in mind; consider your air system as the lungs of your house. Think about the type of business that you desire to manage your house’s lungs and your indoor air quality within your house. Have the total air system occasionally checked for polluted duct and have it correctly preserved so your Heating and Air System can offer your household with great air quality for many years to come. Certified duct cleaners will follow rigorous requirements set by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. Enabling an unqualified service provider to clean your ducts could be even worse than not having them cleaned at all. More particles could be separated and launched into your house or your HVAC system could be harmed.

A round, flexible exhaust tube at the back of your dryer connects to the wall and sends hot, moist air outdoors. As your heated clothes tumble in the hot air, lint (tiny bits of the cotton or other fibers that make up your clothing) come off the fabric. Most of these fibers end up in the lint trap as the exhaust air passes through it. You can usually access the lint trap inside the dryer door or on top of the dryer.

My A/C stopped working on Sunday afternoon, the repair tech was there within the hour. He was very friendly and explained the problem and the cost. I decided it was time to replace the system which was ten years old. The estimator was there in no time, looked over my home and the system and gave us several options. We decided on a system, and it was installed and working at 2:30 on Monday. Highly recommend Waychoff's!

Clean air ducts are an important component to having a clean home, and therefore it can be a great idea to clean your vent system.  For maintenance purposes, we recommend that your air duct and vent system be cleaned every 3-5 years, depending on a variety of factors including your personal preference, number of pets in the household, cleanliness of the household, and other activities that affect indoor air quality, such as smoking inside.  Air duct cleaning is also a good idea at the completion of a remodeling project, when moving into a new home, or if you experience increased allergies.
