I understand that air duct cleaning is controversial. I just purchased a 3300sq ft open loft apt from very heaver smokers. I have forced heata and ac system with flexible in-ceiling ducts. I am concerned about the build up of carcinogenic material inside the ductwork and want to have them cleaned. Also, the smell of cigarette smoke continues to linger 5 or 6 months after they have moved out. Can flexible ductwork be cleaned/
Thanks for the response. that was what i suspected. SO, now if I have same concerns about carcinogenic material and lingering smoke smell. what are my options? Since it is a loft, I could consider running new exposed ductwork. how difficult would it be do do this given there is an existing system and what might a ballpark cost be for a 3300SQ space with 14 ft ceilings? Approximately 1500 of the 3300sq exist as a second story loft that is open to the entire apt. Thanks.
I just don't understand why people bother to respond to the question that I did not ask. Can someone else give an answer here. I know all about how to go and get an estimate. My question is I am talking about $2,000, $5,000, $10,000 or more. The sq footage and cei;ling height will hopefully give someone a vague idea of the size of the space that I am talking about and the amount of exposed ductwork that would be required. Thanks for responding if you can help me out.
