How Long Does a Professional Duct Cleaning Service Take?

The minimum time required to replace ducts in a normal-sized building is 24 to 48 hours, while larger buildings can take up to 96 hours. A larger home may have several units that require more time to repair. When it comes to a small house, our experienced air duct cleaning technicians can finish the process of cleaning the air ducts in about three hours. On the other hand, larger homes, which are usually more than three thousand square feet, take more than five hours to receive a full air duct cleaning service.

A standard cleaning of the air ducts would last between two and three hours and would cover the air conditioning unit, the main duct, the ventilation grilles of the rooms and the air ducts themselves. If the air ducts extend over more than one floor, it will take longer to clean them properly. A professional air duct cleaning service will know how to use negative air pressure, seal problem areas and grilles, and guarantee that the air ducts are completely clean without causing discomfort to you and your family. It's important to pay attention to the time your air duct cleaning company spends on your ducts, but you'll also want to pay attention to how often you schedule air duct cleanings.

The amount of time it takes to clean the air ducts can depend on the extent of the duct system, the age of the air ducts, and whether they have ever been cleaned before.
