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:
Duct Cleaning provided by Waychoff’s Air Conditioning is one of the most sought-after air duct cleaning services in Jacksonville, FL. Our duct cleaning services help remove and eliminate the pollutants in your home air conditioning duct system. They can cause allergies, stale odors in your home, extra dust and even sickness. Over time these pollutants, mold, and bacteria from dirt, pollen, tobacco, smoke, pet hair and dust mites in the ductwork of your home’s heating and cooling system. Every time your furnace or air conditioner runs, these particles whisk through the vents and spew from your ducts into the air your family breathes.
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.
The first step is to clean the lint trap after every load of laundry. By doing this simple cleaning regularly, you will avoid 90% of dryer vent problems. You should perform extensive cleaning annually, or sooner if you suspect a problem. Unplug your dryer and pull it out from the wall, then disconnect the exhaust tube from the dryer and the wall, and clean it with a vacuum.

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.
