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 Mersey 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?
Mersey 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.
Our job isn’t complete until your home is just as tidy as when we found it.
What Customers Say
“It had been some time since I had my ducts cleaned and I decided to go ahead and have it done again after my last furnace cleaning. So today Logan/Cory/Nick came and did the work in my house. They were all VERY friendly, accommodating, clean job and extremely thorough. I did not see one corner cut. In fact a potential problem with my washing machine hose starting to leak was pointed out. I HIGHLY recommend you get your dryer vent cleaned at the same time as your ductwork in the house. My dryer vent was only 2 years old (redone after. remodelling 2 years ago) and I already had a massive clog in it that was at huge risk for a fire! It was most definitely worth the extra $40-$60 to have it done. Don’t look for the $89 deals you want professionals – these guys brought in a massive machine and did it thoroughly and professionally. I wouldn’t use anyone else.”

“Mersey technician Cory Latino attended our house today to perform a prepaid preventive maintenance on our Lennox AC and heating system. Mersey installed the system years ago and we had a prepaid service contract. Cory attended on time, did a thorough cleaning, inspection and testing of both AC and heating systems. He replaced the air filter (that we supplied) and he demonstrated how the exterior heat exchanger filter needs to be hosed off a few times per year to reduce stress on the system. All systems checked out and we prepaid for the same coverage next year. Cory also helped arrange a duct cleaning service through Mersey at our request. It is the employees that create impressions about the company. Cory and the coordinating staff are competent and friendly.”
