Duct Cleaning FAQs
What are the benefits of duct cleaning?
Over time, as your HVAC system is used season after season, contaminants like dust, mold and mildew can build up in your air duct system. These buildups can also cause unpleasant smells to permeate your home.
That’s not ideal for your health or home comfort.
The benefits of having your ducts cleaned means you can:
- Cleaner indoor air for you and your family
- Reduction of allergy symptoms from removal of airborne contaminants
- No more bad smells that build up in your ducts
- Improved air flow in your ducts for efficient year-round heating & cooling
Does duct cleaning remove mold?
Mold is one of the nastier things that can build up in your air ducts, and a thorough cleaning can help remove it.
Mold can be particularly dangerous for people to breathe in and an infestation of this unfriendly fungus can grow worse if not treated; a duct cleaning solution from the pros at Furnasman will ensure that any mold in your air ducts is safely extracted.
Will duct cleaning help allergies?
Yes, duct cleaning can help with certain allergy symptoms you’re experiencing in your home.
Much of the dust and contaminants that build up in your air ducts can irritate allergy symptoms and make them worse.
Duct cleaning can reduce the level of these contaminants to help reduce allergy symptoms and allow you to breathe easier.
Will cleaning the ducts in my house make me sick?
The actual act of duct cleaning is unlikely to make you sick.
On the other hand, allowing contaminants to build up in your ducts over time, however, can cause health risks, as they have an adverse effect on the air you’re breathing indoors.
We do recommend you do not attempt to clean your home’s ducts yourself; this is a job best left to professionals with the right equipment.
Will duct cleaning help improve airflow/HVAC performance?
Yes: cleaning your ducts can help improve their airflow and the overall performance of your HVAC system.
While the primary concern with duct cleaning is to ensure the air that’s moving through them and into your home is free of dangerous contaminants and healthy to breathe, it can also help increase the quality of your heating & air conditioning system for maximized home comfort all year long.
How long will duct cleaning take?
Duct cleaning usually takes between 4 and 6 hours.
How long it takes exactly will vary depending on the size of your home, as larger homes have more ducts.
The length of time it takes will also depend on when your home’s ducts were last cleaned and how much debris needs to be removed.
How often should I have my ducts cleaned?
Furnasman recommends you have your ducts cleaned every two years.
A thorough duct cleaning will eliminate the buildup of debris and can remove potentially harmful contaminants like allergens and mold.
If you’re experiencing increased allergy symptoms or an unpleasant smell coming from your ducts, a duct cleaning could help.
Should I try to clean my own ducts?
No. We do not recommend you attempt to clean your home’s ducts yourself; this is a job best left to professionals with the right equipment.

What Customers Say
“Very conscientious and careful not to harm my floors or walls. Worked fast and cleaned up well after themselves. Answered my questions and explained what they were doing.
I would highly recommend Furnace Man for both of these services.”
- Ramona L.
“This is the first time I called to have an annual furnace maintenance performed since we moved into our home several months ago. Dave B. was prompt, courteous, clean and thoroughly explained what he was doing as he did it. He explained and offered the Just Right Plan which was a no brainer for us to take. Pricing was transparent and I knew what charges to expect before the service was complete. We look forward to receiving the same great service in the near future to have our air conditioner serviced and ducts cleaned. I highly recommend Furnasman H&C based on the service received today.”
