Frequently Asked Questions

Upfront & Honest answers!

What do we do?

Duct Doctor DMV offers professional, award-winning service for residential duct cleaning!

  1. We send 2 uniformed technicians to your home.
  2. One technician connects our powerful vacuum hose to your home’s air handler.
  3. He then inserts the high-velocity air sweeper in the ductwork, which acts as an agitator to dislodge any dirt and debris from the ducts.
  4. The other technician works inside your home using a high-velocity blower at the registers and air vents.
  5. This gives our vacuum additional blasting power- the hose from the truck sucks debris in, the blower at the registers blows debris out.

We perform this process at both the air return and supply of your duct work to ensure all debris and contaminants are removed.

Who will come to my home or office?

We send 2 uniformed technicians to every home.

  • One technician to work outside your home and
  • The second to work inside.

Our technicians are trained by NADCA—the HVAC Inspection, Maintenance and Restoration Association.


Are their energy benefits?

The math is simple: When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard.

Contaminants and debris in your ductwork slow down the air flow, which makes your system work harder to maintain the desired temperature.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling a home is wasted.

Cleaning your ductwork can help regain some of that wasted energy leading to improved cost-effectiveness.

What are the health & safety benefits?

Your air duct system are the lungs of your home.

In a typical 6-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living.

Typical contaminants in your ductwork include dust, dander, mold, and chemicals. This contaminated air gets circulated throughout your home about 5-7 times a day.

Duct Doctor DMV removes contaminants from your ductwork to reduce the risk and effect of airborne allergens, respiratory conditions, and autoimmune disorders.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, heating equipment, including dryers, is one of the leading causes of house fires.

To reduce your risk of a house fire, get your air ducts and dryer vents cleaned professionally.

What equipment is used?

Duct Doctor DMV employs a patented vacuum truck to remove all contaminants from your home’s ductwork.

Our vacuum trucks are the industry’s most powerful equipment and are powered by the truck’s diesel engine.

The contaminants we remove are stored in the truck’s debris collector for safe disposal.

We use an 8” hose connected to your ductwork to vacuum out all debris, and our truck’s air compressor supplies up to 200 pounds of air pressure.

Cleaned our vent for gas cooktop. Difference in the before and after pictures is amazing! We called many companies that were recommended to us. Only the DuctDoctor took on the assignment. Office staff and the team that visited our home were cheerful and professional. I would use them again and highly recommend them.

We were very impressed with Josué and Nitan. They were on time and in fact called ahead of time to ask if they could come earlier and we said of course. They were very knowledgeable in what they did and kept us informed of what they were doing the entire time. They never tried to sell us any kind of service that we didn't need. They were very polite and respectful and talkative with our young children as well. We had a mildew kind of smell that we just could not get rid of. Our hvac guy recommended this company and I'm so glad he did because they were able to get that smell out and sanitized everything as well. We highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again in the near future!

We used Mike from Duct Doctor on 2 seperate occasions. Mike was super engaged in explaining to us what he was doing, he took a lot of time to ensure the job was done correctly, he was very accommodating to our questions and overall, did an excellent job. We are sorry this review has been so long coming, but certainly would recommend Mike to anyone who needs their ducts cleaned. Mike was very professional.

Pleasant and polite techs arrived on time, thoroughly explained work to be done, and cleaned up after their work. Priced reasonably compared to giants like Stanley Steemer. Would definitely use this company’s services again.

Booked an air duct cleaning and overall, they were very professional, punctual, and provided high-quality service. However I just wish they paid more attention to our items to avoid getting hit with all of the dust and drywall from the cleaning. For example, they cleaned one air vent inside the master closet and rather than instruct us to move our clothes to avoid the dust, they just proceeded to clean. As a result, all of our clothes and my suits were covered in dust, lint, and drywall
