Duct Cleaning in Maryland & Washington, DC

Ducts are the piping systems that distribute air throughout your home and heating/cooling system. Your ductwork both distributes conditioned air throughout the house and pulls air from your home to the HVAC system. An expertly sized and installed duct system can be very efficient, and when it is properly sealed and filtered, your duct system may never need to be cleaned. If your system is in need of a cleaning, there is most likely some underlying cause that is making it dirty.

Why do your ducts need to be cleaned?

At James A. Wheat & Sons, the vast majority of our customers ask to have their ducts cleaned in order to address other problems or symptoms in their home, such as:

  • Dust on furniture or excessive dust
  • Dirt and/or mold on the registers
  • Allergies or asthma
  • Want a healthier/cleaner home
  • Just had a renovation performed

We find that duct cleaning is a great service that can help with any these problems but will not necessarily solve the problem or prevent the condition or symptom from returning in the future. That’s why we offer you two options in dealing with any duct cleaning job. Contact us today at 240-399-5051 to learn more!

Have an Emergency?

We Can Help!

Option #1 – duct cleaning

We provide duct cleaning services to homes throughout Montgomery County, Maryland and NW Washington, DC. Our trained staff performs duct cleanings on an almost daily basis using specialized equipment to perform the job correctly and safely.

Duct cleaning is the process of removing dust and debris from the existing duct system. The vast majority of dust in the system is adhered to the sides of the duct. We use a vacuum system that includes a rotating brush to physically dislodge the dust and then vacuum it out of the system with the integral HEPA Filter vacuum. We are able to perform this with ducts down to approximately 6″ in diameter and can perform the cleaning in flex duct systems. A duct cleaning is only as good as the effort put into it. A normal duct system cleaning takes approximately four hours. This varies depending on the number of registers in the home.

Your duct system is part of your heating and/or air conditioning system, so why would you let a carpet cleaning or chimney sweep company handle that service? Let the experts at James A. Wheat & Sons handle it—we know your system! Contact us today to schedule your air duct cleaning service!

Option #2 – whole-home analysis

Don’t just treat the symptom, find a solution—let us determine the real cause behind your dirty duct system. Find out how leaking ducts and or high infiltration into a home can cause dirty ducts, dusty homes, aggravated allergies and asthma, and a less healthy environment in general.
