Santa Maria Air Duct Cleaners from people just like you.

"These guys were great. Our ducts had not been cleaned in several years and we had a renovation done over the summer. They came and spent quite a bit of time cleaning" our ducts. Apparently they had never been cleaned properly before because the stuff that came out was really gross. However
cleaned everything well and they showed us how we would know that the ducts were properly cleaned in the future. We asked how frequently they should be cleaned and were told that the house isn't com Placated and every 2 years would be fine. I appreciate their honesty and good work. Will definitely use them next time.


cleaners came to my home to just clean my air ducts. From his review of my ducts it was determined that I had mold in my ducts and in my" furnace. Instead of coming back another day to do the job, since it was going to take much longer, they rescheduled their following appt and stayed to do the job. I had been told by others that had their air ducts cleaned to be careful that the dust is terrible. I had no dust in my home. My girls and I had runny noses for a few weeks and when I realized there was mold it made sense, allergies. Within a couple of weeks we were all back to normal and have been great ever since. They had state of the art equipment and did a through job. I am extremely pleased with the service I received and I would definitely use them again.

Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth It?

Experts agree there is value to air duct cleaning, although there's no scientific evidence it improves air quality.


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.

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.

Your right, HVAC companies are really not much help at all in regard to getting all the rooms and floors the same temperature, and airflow.  It's not their focus or their expertise. They repair and sell hardware.  I had the same exact problem here in Central Florida.  I had rooms that were to hot in the summer and the same ones were to cold in the colder months.  I have a 2 story 2800 sq ft home with 4 bedrooms.  I did a lot of research, and I tried to fix it myself, but in reality I made it worse.  I finally found a company here in the Central Florida area called AirFlowBalance, LLC.  Their web site is AirFlowBalance.com.  This company is not an HVAC dealer or repairer.  Their sole focus is to balance the airflow and temperature in a home by using a nonevasive proprietary process, with patented devices. Now, when I set my thermometer at 75 degrees, every room is 75 degrees.  I no longer have to bump up or down the temp from room to room.  No more thermostat wars with my family!  Also, I was very supprised at how affordable it was and the whole job was done under 3 hours.  They also have an online estimate page on their web site.  I hope this helps, and I am not sure if they have an office in AZ.
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.

After reading reviews for several companies on Angie's List, I selected
Santa Maria Air Duct Cleaners Provider Name Locked
to contact to clean my ducts because of their excellent reviews. On October 6, 2015, R.J. and
Santa Maria Air Duct Cleaners Provider Name Locked
came to my home. After spending about 45 minutes inspecting my ducts and the whole house ultra violet system and Aprilaire whole house cleaner, R.J. said my ducts did not need cleaning, that what I was doing (keeping a very clean house) and the equipment I had was doing the job. I was so impressed with the honesty of R.J. and

company that I have been recommending them to all my friends should they be in need of duct cleaning. Since I had not had my ducts cleaned for several years, I was prepared to hear that they needed cleaning and perhaps spending $400 for the base price and extra ducts. When I asked the charge for coming out and inspecting, I was told "0." What a company and how rare to see such honesty these days. I highly recommend this company to everyone. Thank you, R.J. and

I had am amazon coupon that promised cleaning ducts and dryer vent. When I made the appointment I requested certificate of insurance and gave details for that as well as detailed directions to my location (it's VERY complicated). Certificate arrived via email day before appointment - at my telephoned request. Office called about 30 minutes before arrival, then the techs called about 10 minutes after to say they were on the way. They arrived just at end of the 3-hour window. Polite, professional, pleasant. A little bit sloppy. They did answer one of my big questions about size and shape of ductwork - q square (appx x8 ft) with . The constant upsell spiel got very irritating. Equally irritating was refusal to clean or even the extra air intake grille so I could wash it and they then could replace it - despite promised services of "Whole House AirDuct Cleaning Including Unlimited Vents,
One Main Line, One Return, Dryer Vent Cleaning, and Furnace Inspection."

The owner,

, was responsive, contacted me immediately & and was able to schedule the repair quickly. The young man who did the work was timely & thorough, explaining what needed to be done each step of the way.

I bought the $89 special and was convinced I needed all my ducts thoroughly cleaned out for $950. I talked them down to $800 and when the provider broke a large glass frame, he blamed me saying that the picture was in his way. I gave him $600, had the frame fixed for !00, then sent him another 100 as final payment.
I'm giving them a low score because of the unprofessional way the provider handled the broken frame. Had he kindly taken responsibility and agreed to pay the cost from the get-go, no arguing, this review would be different.

I bought a Groupon coupon for air duct cleaning -- unlimited vents and returns for $79. An appointment was scheduled by phone. They called before they arrived and were prompt.

were great. They were respectful of my property and answered any questions I had, even allowing me to observe the process.

informed me that the Groupon deal didn't include cleaning the mainlines, which was a bit of a disappointment. He explained that they start from the top floor of the house and blow the debris down into the mains, then clean them out --- so I really couldn't leave the dust sitting in the mains. So, I purchased an upgrade and with an additional $120 had the complete job done. Even at $199, it was a great deal, I realized, after seeing how thorough this crew was. My house had several vents and returns, on three floors.

did an excellent job. I was quoted other prices for a complete air duct cleaning -- one was for over $500. So this was a great experience and I highly recommend this company.

One o/f the best home improvement/home maintenance companies I've ever utilized. Sergey, the tech, was pleasant and professional. He cleaned up after himself, did a phenomenal job, and did not attempt to upsell. My house smells clean and fresh, there is a notable decrease in the amount of dust in our home, and our HVAC system seems to be working much more efficiently.

They were great. The guys were polite, respectful of our house and belongings, and on time. They started right away, worked efficiently, and were done in a reasonable amount of time. I highly recommend them.
