Why should I choose a NADCA member to clean my air ducts?

Air duct cleaning companies must meet stringent requirements to become NADCA Members.  All NADCA Members must have certified Air System Cleaning Specialists (ASCS) on staff who have taken and passed the NADCA Certification Examination.  Passing the exam demonstrates extensive knowledge of HVAC design and cleaning methodologies.  ASCS's are required to attend continuing education seminars in order to maintain their NADCA certification status.  NADCA Members have signed a Code of Ethics stating they will do everything possible to protect the consumer and follow NADCA Standards for cleaning.  

How long will the duct cleaning take?

The typical residential job takes approximately 1/2 day. However, the amount of time it takes to clean a residential HVAC system depends on many variables such as the size of the home, the number of systems, the extent of the contamination and the number of HVAC cleaners performing the job.

Why should I get my air ducts cleaned?

Benefits of air duct cleaning include lowered energy costs, increased efficiency of your home's ventilation system, asthma and allergy relief, cleaner and healthier air quality and less frequent dusting.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered one component of an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.

How often should I get my air ducts cleaned?

Duct cleaning is recommended every 5-7 years. However, frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the home owner. Some of the things that may lead a home owner to consider more frequent cleaning include:

  • Smokers in the household.
  • Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander.
  • Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system.
  • Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home’s HVAC system.
  • After home renovations or remodeling.
  • Prior to occupancy of a new home to remove contaminants resulting from the construction process.
