$99 Duct Cleaning – is it Even Worth the Money?

By Dave Trosdahl on December 5th, 2007

The quick answer? Yes, it is worth the money.

Here’s the way we look at it. Let’s say your car is dirty and you want to wash it. The best is to do it yourself by hand. Sometimes though, that just isn’t practical. So, you take it through the “touch-free” wash. It won’t be quite as clean, but it certainly will be much cleaner.

The same is true when it comes to the $99 duct cleaning. While it doesn’t “scrub” the walls of the duct work, it will remove about 90% of the dust and dirt. Not bad for a quick job which only takes about an hour.

What’s the difference between the $99 duct cleaning and the $189 duct cleaning?

The main difference between the $99 duct cleaning and the $189 duct cleaning is the equipment used. For $99, pressurized air is blown through the air ducts to a high powered vacuum which has been attached to your furnace. The $189 duct cleaning on the other hand incorporates a soft-bristled brush and a vacuum. The rotobush is sent through the air ducts and will loosen all the dirt and debris so the vacuum can remove it.

If money is tight or time is a concern, go with the $99 duct cleaning. If at all possible though, consider the $189 duct cleaning, since it is clearly a much more thorough way to clean duct work.
