Cleaning air ducts can take anywhere from an hour to a full day, depending on the size of the system. A standard cleaning of the air ducts typically takes two to three hours and covers the air conditioning unit, main duct, ventilation grilles, and air ducts. According to our expert air duct cleaning technicians, it takes three to five hours to properly clean the entire system, including the return side, supply side, fan compartment, fan wheel, and return tank. The exact amount of time needed for a thorough clean of your air vents will vary depending on the size of your air conditioning system.
For smaller properties that measure less than 3,000 square feet, it usually takes about three hours to fully clean the air ducts. For larger properties that measure more than 3,000 square feet, it takes between three and five hours. Older homes or homes with pets may take longer. It's important to note that three hours is usually a good estimate for cleaning air ducts, but it's always a good idea to make a few calculations before you call a professional.
Our expert technicians estimate that it takes two to four hours to fully clean your air duct system. This includes all main and return vents as well as the oven itself. The time needed to clean the ducts also depends on the number and size of ventilation grilles, services chosen (simple cleaning or complete decontamination of the system), location, and access points. It usually takes longer to clean HVAC systems in commercial properties than in residential properties.
The purpose of this cleaning is to remove dirt and debris from your home's heating and cooling system for adequate airflow and clean air quality. It's important to pay attention to how long your air duct cleaning company spends on your ducts as well as how often you schedule cleanings. The technicians use an oversized vacuum and blower to clean the air ducts as well as other equipment for cleaning the air ducts and ventilation system.
