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.
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.
I called JEFF Williams of JAX VENTS for my annual vent cleaning. JEFF was prompt and arrived right at the scheduled time. This is our 3rd year in a row we have used JEFF at JAX VENTS. WE would not use any other dryer vent company. JEFF is honest, trustworthy, professional and dependable. He goes above and beyond to do an outstanding job. When he has completed his work he leaves the dryer area clean and ready to be used for washing and drying clothes. I've had other vent companies before BUT, FOR THE PRICE & SERVICE PROVIDED, JEFF at JAX VENTS is without a doubt THE BEST PRICE PER SERVICE. We have him scheduled to come back for the 4th Time next year !!! OUTSTANDING JOB !!!
Fantastic service! Eric came out to conduct scheduled maintenance on my AC unit this afternoon. He was extremely thorough, honest, and candid. I appreciated his patience in explaining things in detail and giving me tips on things I could do myself to extend the life of my unit. Waychoff's pricing is fair, but their service is extra-ordinary- honest and trustful.5 Stars! Highly recommend.
We had an appointment with a 2-hour window that Griffen Services made; No one came or called. We had to call their phone service to find out what was going on.I was told installers should be there. At the end of our conversation, the installers pulled up.We called Griffen Services 3 times throughout the day leaving messages with their phone service, We also called our sales person twice and left messages with no return calls. We decided not to use their services based on their customer care or lack of it. I would not refer anyone that values their time to Griffen Services.
If you’re spending extra time to dry clothes completely due to a clogged dryer vent, you can bet you’re also spending extra on utilities. Extended or extra drying cycles also mean your clothes will be subjected to more wear and weathering. By hiring a Dryer Vent Wizard and shortening your drying time, you’ll use less power and save your clothing from excessive damage.

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.
If your air ducts have been damaged, you’ll need to replace them. The national average air duct replacement cost is $150-$280, which may not include materials. Factors such as duct material, labor, location of ducts and linear feet of ductwork will all affect your final costs. Labor costs will vary based on how accessible the ducts are and what material your ducts are made of. The least expensive duct material is a flexible, non-metallic ducting that costs approximately $1-$2 per linear foot. Flexible aluminum is generally more expensive and stronger than non-metallic ducting. Stainless steel ducting is the strongest, the least flexible (meaning installing it typically has higher labor rates), and usually the most expensive. An average price for air duct replacement could range between $35 and $55 per linear foot, including basic materials and labor. A typical single-family home has 6-10 duct runs; replacing or installing one duct run could average $150-$250 for labor.
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.
