Duct Cleaning to Clean Your Air
2/5/2018 (Permalink)Whether it is from a fire damage or you need to spring clean from allergies, duct cleaning is one more space in your home to consider cleaning. Below is some information from Home Advisor: Average Cleaning Cost
Cleaning ducts and vents generally costs between $263 and $472, but as with many services, the bigger and dirtier the project, the more you'll need to pay. When a professional comes to assess the needs of your system, they will consider:
- The size of your ductwork
- The degree to which it is contaminated
- The ease with which they can reach various parts of the system
The average cost of keeping your residential ductwork orderly is going to vary greatly from that of a commercial building. This is because commercial air ducts are often larger and more extensive. Residential cleanings can cost an average of about $20-$30 per vent. For commercial buildings, service providers must do an estimate of your space before they can provide an accurate quote. Before factoring in the materials and the number A/C and furnace units, you can expect a commercial project to cost at least $35-$50 per hour.Mold and Mildew Removal
The amount of debris or mold present in your system could certainly ratchet up the overall price. The cost of mildew removal is around $0.07-0.08 per square foot, on top of your initial cost, according to Blue Book. Removing these elements involves added time, special equipment and even special chemicals. In fact, you may be referred to a specialist if mildew and mold is too severe.Custom Designed Ducts
Most residential air duct systems are installed in a predictable fashion or are easy to figure out. However, you can expect a higher quote if your system has been custom-designed, involves extra components and has features which are difficult to access. This is due to the added work and time which will have to be put into the project.
Commercial systems are often customized to fit the building they serve. They are almost guaranteed to feature added components, and will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The more difficult the construction is to maneuver, the more you can expect to pay.
