"PROS: Service performed - Technician inspected my furnace. Then moved onto the duct cleaning. After the second vent he paused to tell me that the allergy issues(the reason we wanted" our vents cleaned) were most likely not related to out ductwork, because the ducts appeared to be quite clean already. Even still, he completed the job. Very punctual Friendly technician CONS: Communication - This turned out to be a moderately messy job. He had to work in every room of the house, and left a little bit of dust under each vent(not much, but enough to need to vacuum). The dust and mess itself is not the problem. It's that I ended up having to scramble ahead of the technician to cover up and/or move furniture and bedding before he made it to each area. Now that I know how it's done, I can understand the level of mess to expect, but I didn't know that ahead of time and it was a surprise which is why I was scrambling to cover things and not get in his way. I think some proactive communication could have given me the
to prepare ahead of time and make the visit go much more smoothly. Availability - No weekends - had to re-arrange my work schedule to accommodate Level of professionalism - For the most part the technician was professional, but a few items were slightly off-putting. First the air and vacuum lines were slightly short and required the him to move his car into my carport so that they could reach everywhere in the house. Seems odd that the equipment brought was not sufficient to perform the job without extraneous configuration. Lastly, a couple of times, the technician placed some of his dirty equipment on the furniture and the bed. I would expect the dirty equipment to stay on the floor, and preferably on a drop cloth. To be fair, the tech was slightly flustered, having previously explained that normally the vent cleaning is a 2 person job, but that he could handle it himself just fine. I think this raised the stress level and probably
to a small level of professionalism. Overall, it was a decent experience and worth the $$, but could have been a little less stressful and a little more professional. I already have a contract with another service provider for regular HVAC maintenance(I purchased this big deal for the vent cleaning), so I likely won't be using Freedom again, but I'm glad I had this service performed and the issues experienced would not prevent me from doing the same in the future.

"The service was excellent! I was going to purchase a coupon via Angie's list but also wanted additional services performed. I called them and they honored the price from Angie's" List. The technician arrived exactly on time, was pleasant and very professional. He had no issue with me asking questions and seeing what he was doing (I'm a tech head and DIYer so I like to know what all was going on). His supervisor came out while he was onsite and was very helpful in explaining all about the systems in the house and provided me with some good information on how long they should last and about the change over from freon to the new DOW chemical next year. The service was quick and went flawlessly. They even patched up some holes in the duct line to help prevent air leakage! I would highly recommend them again and plan on using them again in the future for any needs!

Air Duct Cleaning & Air Quality

The air you breathe indoors can become more polluted than outdoor air because it's trapped inside, allowing contaminants to accumulate. Many HVAC companies offer air duct cleaning services, but there's no scientific proof that air duct cleaning improves air quality.

Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth it?

Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

If the ducts are venting through a window I'm assuming the duct work is all easily accessible.  Lowe's and Home Depot sell a cleaning kit that uses an electric drill to spin the brush as it goes through the ductwork.  I've found it to work quite well and you can do it yourself.  It may take a few passes the first time to get everything out if it has been a while since it was last cleaned.  Just make sure you get all of the loose lint out after running the brush through from both ends and you're good to go.  Please note that if the line is not hard but rather a flex duct line you can easily puncture a whole in it with this kit and will do better to clean it by hand.

There are varying opinions on the type of cleaning to have done on your air ducts.  My opinion is that it varies based on the type of duct work you have.  If you have solid material (typically metal) ducting you can have use a company that uses a brush to scrape the system clean.  If you have flexible plastic or foil ducts the solvent cleaners are generally a safer bet since the brushes often tear holes in the soft material and/or pull joints loose.  It really depends on what type on ducting you have.  You're ducts will collect all kinds of dirt, skin cells and allergens over time so if you see dicoloration around your vents it is probably time to get them checked and cleaned.

Also, don't stop at the duct work.  Don't forget your annual system check up by a licensed HVAC technician.  They'll make sure your system is running at peak performance, keeping it running efficiently and with as little impact as possible on your electric bill.  You can often save the cost of the annual tune up in the electricity cost saved.  If you have a natural gas system a bi-annual check and cleaning of the HVAC unit may be advisable to save electricity and gas.

if you have exhausted all of your choices I would call and put a complain in with the BBB then go to the DA and put a complain with them.  Then get a good lawyer and sue them for all you can get.

the answers in this on this page are all correct but you are using a bandaide to to cure the infection have a trust hvac tech open your system to see where the dust is coming from you more than likely have an impacted coil that need to acid wash to bring it back to oringinal anything left from the fire is still inbeded in that coil. just remember after that job to keep your filters clean change once a month in the summer and every two months in the winter.

He walked around my house taking out the vents, made a huge mess then told me he couldn't clean them and gave me at $2,000 plus estimate for replacing the ducts. I wish I had read their reviews before I made the appointment.

At the time we originally contacted
Birmingham Air Duct Cleaners Provider Name Locked
they had a special price on a single furnace house like ours. We weren't sure if that meant a minimum job or complete cleaning, but they did a thorough cleaning. It was a great bargain for the amount of time and high tech equipment used to do this duct cleaning. The large vacuum truck they used must be a very expensive piece of equipment.

asked when we wanted it done and they came on the date and time we requested.
It was a pleasure working with such an efficient company.

and his wife did not rush through the job. They took close to 4 hours and did a two-story home with 12 rooms and many vents and left everything exactly the way they found it. The final price was exactly what he quoted me.

It didn't go well and they should tell you right away the cost of the product. If you have such a good product you don't need to utilize high pressure sales tactics like those of car salesmen.

The

team was punctual and performed initial inspection of the system and provided an estimate. They mentioned a few options and additional services but were not pushy in trying to sell them. They performed all the work in the crawlspace under the house so they would not have to remove our large, painted over wall vents and returns and risk interior damage.

The service man arrived and discovered we didn't need a major overhaul of our AC....it was just dirty! He was clean, efficient, personable and knowledgable. He arrived on time, cleaned the entire system and left us smiling. Can't get better than that! We would call them again without hesitation.
