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:
With your air system and air ducts in a constant cleaned state, you and those in your family can be in much healthier or at the very least minimize the symptoms experienced when the indoor air system was dirty and contaminated. In addition to improving health related symptoms, good indoor air quality in the home can lead to better breathing for deeper and undisturbed sleep. According to some doctors, improved undisturbed sleep can lead to a healthier life overall. While in some cases poor indoor air quality can be linked to asthma.
I was lucky enough to have my AC lines clog up on a Sunday night. I called Waychoff's after hours emergency service and Erin got back to me within 5 minutes of my initial call. She was very friendly and explained different service options for my situation. Eric was my technician and was at my house within the hour. He was very knowledgeable, explained everything he was doing in detail, gave me tips and advice to help prolong the life of my unit and even let my dog crawl all over him and "help". He had me back up and running less than an hour after he arrived. If you want a company who knows what they are doing and has fast, affordable and friendly service, I would highly recommend Waychoff's!
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.

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.
Did you know that a clogged dryer vent not only means your clothes will take too long to dry, but it’s costing you money? At a rate of $0.15 per kWh, every 40 minute drying cycle of a 5000 watt dryer costs $0.50! The lint that accumulates in the ventilation system not only reduces your dryer’s efficiency, but is also highly combustible. A clogged dryer vent costs you money in energy efficiency and is a serious fire hazard. Our dryer vent cleaning service is a cost effective way to eliminate the unnecessary expense of extended drying times and keep your family safe from the risk of fire.
Mold in the air ducts can be an easy DIY fix. First, turn OFF your HVAC system. Find an approved cleaning solution. Pour or spray the solution on the infected area. Put on protective gear and a mask - you do not want to make contact with the mold (or chemicals! or breathe it in. Scrub the area using disposable towels or brushes, and be sure to check the drip pan and evaporator coils. Vacuum the affected areas after cleaning. Bag all your rags and utensils and dispose of properly. Apply an inhibitor to the affected areas to prevent future growth. It is recommended to call a professional if you have more than 10 square feet of mold as this may be too big of a job, or there might be other/larger issues. Even if you don’t have more than 10 square feet of mold, you can still call a professional to clean it up.
It has been YEARS since I used a service to clean my home. In the past I've always used one of those types that send in a crew and they very quickly go through the house and are gone in 30 to 45 minutes. They always did a "good job" but not a "great job". The two ladies that came from Jessie's did a GREAT JOB and spent two full hours working constantly. I will call them again for sure!
From our salesmen Scott to our installers Eric, Johnny and Tim, we couldn't have asked for a more professional, knowledgeable team to do our AC replacement. From the beginning, Scott the made the whole experience easy with his knowledge and understanding of our needs and concerns. I would definitely recommend Waychoff's, Scott and our installers to anyone that is in need of either a service, maintenance or like us, a replacement of a aging and failing ac system in their home. Couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience and quality of equipment. Do yourself a favor, don't call anyone else but Waychoff's for and AC service needs.

Chances exist that lint that has in fact been restricting the exhaust vent over a prolonged time period can cause overheating which in turn can cause a fire. The establish of lint that occurs over a prolonged amount of time is not merely a fire threat, it is also a clothing dryer problem that gradually steals the energy efficiency of the clothes dryer and gradually cost you significantly more money.
Of the cleaning services in which we are proud to be specialists, air duct cleaning is by far the one that requires the most trust between the consumer and the air duct cleaning service provider. There are many unscrupulous air duct cleaning companies purporting to be something they are not, many advertisements using unrealistic scare tactics, and of course bait and switch tactics are prevalent in the industry. You need to feel confident in the professionalism of the firm you hire to clean your air ducts because you are asking someone to clean the inside of your duct work, where it can be difficult to see the results of the job.
