HOW DO I KNOW IF MY AIR DUCTS NEED TO BE CLEANED?
We get more requests for information on duct cleaning than any other service we provide. As we spend more time indoors during the winter months and our bodies work to fight off colds and the flu, the need for clean air is especially important.
It may be time to have your air ducts cleaned if your home has:
- constant dust, even after regular cleaning
- mold or musty odors
- recently completed a remodel or construction project
- problems with mice or other rodents
- higher energy bills
Dirty air ducts can affect people in very tangible ways. They can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms or cause nasal congestion and dry skin. They can also irritate people with sinus problems, emphysema, or other respiratory ailments.
We get rid of dirt and contaminants from the ductwork and other HVAC components with high-pressure air and a powerful HEPA vacuum. Our powerful HEPA-filtered collection system uses negative pressure on each section of ducts to capture dislodged contaminants.
OTHER OPTIONS FOR CLEANER AIR
Cleaning the ducts in your home will greatly improve the indoor air quality of your home. Additional options to improve your home’s overall indoor air quality include ultraviolet air purifiers, and humidifiers.

A recent air quality test in Leawood, KS showed an 80% reduction in the particulate matter inside the home after duct cleaning service from A.B. May. Lower particulate levels can relieve allergies and freshen the air you breathe every day.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends professional duct cleaning every three to five years. Depending on the age of your HVAC system, along with other factors in your home, you may want to get this done sooner rather than later.
A.B. May will assess your indoor air quality needs and recommend your home’s specific duct cleaning maintenance schedule.
HOW MUCH DOES DUCT CLEANING COST?
Duct cleaning costs will vary from home to home. Avoid low ball offers and look for upfront pricing to avoid surprises.

A reputable company will evaluate your air ducts and give you an accurate price before they complete the work.
