What is Air Duct Cleaning?

Air duct cleaning is a process that removes air duct contaminants, including dust and dirt. Every home or commercial building with a traditional HVAC system has air ducts behind the walls in the crawlspace or above the ceilings. Even vacuuming your home isn’t enough to erase all the dust inside your air vents.

Additionally, traditional home vacuums can’t clean out ductwork. That’s why we equip our professional staff with state-of-the-art tools made for cleaning ductwork. Before we clean your air ducts, our technicians look at your air system’s airflow and design to understand its needs. As professional cleaning specialists, we can conduct visual inspections for excessive dust and general duct issues.

Air duct cleaning is necessary for several reasons. If your home smells musty or you have allergies, air duct cleaning might be part of the solution for both problems. Getting them out without professional tools can be almost impossible. Air duct cleaning is also often necessary after renovations because of the debris and dust involved in remodeling or rebuilding. Air duct cleaners help manage all of these problems.

How Much Does Duct Cleaning Cost?

Air duct cleaning services can vary in cost depending on a variety of factors. If this all seems like a lot to calculate, it is. That’s why at Better Air Northwest, we promise to provide a precise, fixed quote to all our residential customers based on square footage. Clean air ducts are an investment in the hygiene level of your home or business, and Better Air Northwest makes sure you know exactly how much that investment will cost.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Service

In addition to cleaning ductwork, Better Air Northwest also cleans dryer vents. Because dryer vents deal with removing moisture, they do not connect to your HVAC ductwork. Dryer vents are exhausts that direct air outside of the home. We use some of the same equipment for cleaning ductwork to clean out lint and other debris inside your dryer vent. An unattended dryer vent can lessen the power of the clothes dryer and leave garments feeling damp instead of warm and dry. Trust Better Air Northwest to make sure your dryer isn’t overworking and your clothes get dry after one cycle.

As a locally owned and operated family business, Better Air Northwest has been committed to serving its customers with integrity since 2009. We are the dryer vent and air duct cleaning company Vancouver residents rely on with an extensive service fleet, experienced staff, and certification from NADCA. Our tools and technicians ensure every inch of your dryer vent and ductwork system is cleaned thoroughly, safely, and efficiently.

FAQs About Duct Cleaning

What time of year is good to have your air ducts cleaned?
Air duct cleaning can be effective at any time of the year! However, some of our customers prefer the fall when the heat will be turned on for the season because the burning dust can smell when the heating coils are turned on.
How often should you clean your ventilation ductwork?
The National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) recommends having your air ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years. In our experience, homes with multiple people living in them, homes with return ductwork in the floor, homes with pets, homes in more rural areas, and anyone who has dust allergies can benefit from the more frequent cleaning!
Does cleaning your air ducts really make a difference?
Air duct cleaning can make a significant difference in your home! At Better Air Northwest, we see the benefits every single day. Some of the main benefits include:
Less dust in the air when the furnace turns on
Less frequent dusting
More efficient furnace
Less frequent filter changes
How do I know if my air ducts need to be cleaned?
You could benefit from having your air ducts cleaned if you are dusting more than once per week, noticing dust build up around the supply vents, or changing your filter frequently. We also recommend that the ductwork be cleaned after any projects are completed in the home like flooring, carpet, or drywall. We have also observed that new construction homes can have a lot of construction debris in the ductwork typically. Lastly, looking down the return ductline is a great way to see how much dust has built up in the system.
