Many duct cleaning contractors do more than remove particulate matter from inside your ducts. For example, their work often includes a thorough inspection of your ductwork for kinks or breakage, and they may also clean other elements of your HVAC system, which can lead to improved energy efficiency. For a company with a verified level of thorough workmanship, use a Best Pick™ with a long history of satisfied customers.
The contractor should use equipment recognized by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), which will typically include vacuum equipment, brushes, and air compressors. Usually, a thorough duct cleaning job takes about four to eight hours for an average-sized house.
In between cleanings, it’s recommended to clean your air filters regularly. During periods of high use, such as the summer, you should clean your air filter once per month.
To be a Best Pick™, a company has to maintain an A average grade based on reviews from at least 100 of their previous customers. EBSCO Research has interviewed hundreds of homeowners across Houston, collecting thousands of reviews. If duct-related problems arise for Houston-area residents, Best Pick Reports® has found the best duct cleaning companies to help.
