Air Duct Cleaning

Sears Air Duct Cleaning
Concealed behind your walls and mostly ignored, your air ducts serve as vital pathways that deliver warm and cool air throughout your home during the year. While they may be unseen, your air ducts are working nearly year round, whenever you have your air conditioner or heater running. Attached to your HVAC system, air ducts transfer the air from these systems throughout your home. What many homeowners don’t realize, though, is that your air ducts, in nearly constant use, continually accumulate dust, grime, debris, pet dander and allergens throughout the year. In fact, according to National Air Duct Cleaners Association the average American home produces 40 pounds of dust per year! 1

Air Duct Cleaning and Indoor Air Quality

While vacuuming and dusting may be a part of your weekly cleaning routine, these basic methods invariably leave dust and dirt behind, and no amount of regular cleaning can capture every dust mite your home produces. As such, much of that dust and dirt ends up in your air ducts. What’s worse is that this same dust continues to recirculate over and over again, with the dust continuing to accumulate inside your ducts even while it’s redistributed throughout your home.

This constant cycle of dust accumulation and redistribution can have serious effects on your home’s cleanliness and your family’s health. Constantly re-circulated allergens will irritate allergy sufferers throughout the year, even when their allergies are not in season (like pollen and weed allergies). Additionally, people with compromised respiratory systems may experience difficulty breathing in homes with high dust quantities. With Sears Air Duct Cleaning, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your air ducts, which can lead to a better indoor air quality throughout your home.

The Air Duct Cleaning Process

Once on the scene, trained Sears professionals utilize powerful, truck-mounted equipment to clear your air ducts of dust, debris, pet dander, allergens, and grime. This powerful suction equipment essentially vacuums out years of accumulated dust from the air ducts, leaving them clean and clear. Once finished, our technicians remove all equipment and make sure that your ducts and HVAC unit are restored to their former condition.

Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC System Efficiency

Your HVAC unit and air ducts deliver heated or cooled air throughout your home year-in and year-out. The air your HVAC unit produces travels through your air ducts and heats or cools your home through the air vents in each room. The EPA defines the dust and other particles in your home’s air as particulate matter, "a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets." The EPA also notes that, "Particle pollution is made up of a number of components, including acids (such as nitrates and sulfates), organic chemicals, metals, and soil or dust particle." 2 If you remove your furnace filter and hold it up to the light, you can probably see several hundred of these minuscule particles floating in the air.

While your furnace filter is designed to trap this particulate matter and prevent it from entering your air ducts, often particles still get through. The amount of particles your HVAC filter traps coincides with the quality of air in your home: the lower the quality of air, the more particles your filter will trap, and the more particles are likely to get through the filter. If these particles are allowed to build up, your HVAC system can become less efficient, having to operate longer to heat or cool your home. An inefficient HVAC system can result in inconsistent heating or cooling, higher utility costs, and expensive HVAC unit repairs (for instance, an A-coil or blower motor) if the problem is left unchecked. Air duct cleaning from Sears, which focuses on the dirt in your air ducts, can also boost the efficiency of a dirty HVAC system, cleaning out the particulate matter that can hinder HVAC effectiveness.

This was an excellent experience. The techs were very professional and provided video of the dust and debris falling from the duct work which made me feel it was worth the investment.
June 10, 2016 5
Marcus was professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly, he help prevent major furnace and air condition replacement due to the landlord's lack of care in my home. He spoke directly on my behalf and not only convinced him of the urgency but most importantly my health, utility bills, and he found the money to pay for it now instead of huge costs later. SO HAPPY!

Kyle and Johnathan were very though and spent time educating me on problems with my duct work and coils related to cigarette smoke damage. I highly recommend these technicians and Sears' services. I look forward to doing business with Sears in the future.

Have technicians were shoe booties/covers. Ironically, we used Sears to clean our carpets the week before, then duct cleaners from the same company walk all around the house with dirty work boots on. On a similar note, technician rubs dirty hands on our counter tops after job completion. Having said all that, Rock and partner were fantastic throughout the service. Excellent customer service and engagement with us!!

They did a great job cleaning my air ducts but when they cleaned the furnace it was a horrific mess downstairs
February 06, 2016 5

Service cost too much for the short amount of time for a dryer duct cleaning service.
December 30, 2015 5
I have no idea why this is not advertised more. I tried to contact two other companies that advertise for duct cleaning in the area and felt like I was getting a run around and didn't feel comfortable with them. I happened to Google and Sears came up. I jumped at it because I trust Sears and my family has for three generations. I would HIGHLY recommend this service and the two gentleman that did the work. They were professional, clean, polite, answered all my questions, and did a fabulous job.
October 28, 2015 5
Sears was referred to me and Israel/Darryl did an awesome job. I will use Sears air duct service again.
October 14, 2015 5
Brian did a wonderful job explaining the entire process of taking his time is showing us things of interest that we might need to look out for in our home. Brian also took the time to explain the optional airfield hate that we could use an attached your furnace which we decided to purchase hopefully this will help quite a bit. He was a delight to work with and we are very thankful for all his help and great service

The service technicians we above and beyond the call of duty. They identify the duct on the second level of the house. And were very patient with determine where the airflow was going upstairs on the second level, first level and basement. They also were instrumental in determining where Alex were happening. They also so sold me a lifetime filter.
September 13, 2015 5
Carlos was very polite and courteous. He showed before and after photos during the cleaning process. He also gave me options - he did try to upsell. I did add the antibacterial to my duct cleaning as Carlos showed me the mold around my drip pan. I will be considering adding the ultraviolet cleaning processor at a later date to prevent future mold growth. I have already recommended to my friends that they clean their vents/ducts and use Sears.
August 12, 2015 5
the service and men where excellent .I will be ordering more help with my furnace ducting this year. Thank you so much for having such a professional team. Marcia Morelewicz

John and his crew were very friendly and very informative regarding the hvac system and duct cleaning. We will surely call Sears again for this and other services based on this experience. We are very pleased. Thanks!
June 24, 2015 5
Steven did an excellent job on the dryer, was very knowledgeable and great personality. we could not do the duct cleaning because all my vents had been silicone. So when I can clean the vents I will reschedule the duct cleaning
June 24, 2015 5
I did not expect to have the furnace cleaned, but am grateful to Dante for showing me the dirt in the fan motor and the mildew inside.
March 21, 2015 5
Thank you, gentleman. We'll be recommending Larry's team to our other family members looking for a duct cleaning. Thanks again!

No the tec exam to ducts and reported mole and fungus.... Looking for a company that can do the duct brushing... Need to get the fungus out and is making everybody sick...
December 30, 2014 5
Nathan Valentine the team lead was outstanding! Very informative and did a very detailed job of explaining what they were going to do. The house and garage was left very clean and I would recommend Sears Duct Cleaning to all my friends and family. Thanks Nathan and Carlos
December 16, 2014 5
Both Technicians were very friendly and helpful. They recommended additionial services such the purchase of a better filter for our furnace that I would not of thought of.
November 15, 2014 5
Eric And Chris are absolutely great! Very professional, quick and they brought to our attention possible problems with our air handling and we observed the condition and had HVAC technician come in and he told us that it was a good thing they brought it to our attention as it was a potential life safety issue. We want to thank Eric and Chris for their knowledge and skill at their profession and also thank Sears for them in their employ!!!
September 13, 2014 5
The Technicians were very professional and explained everything in detail. The went the extra mile to repair the HVAC unit as well. very Happy with the service.
August 26, 2014 5
The service technicians were pleasant and professional. I would definitely call Sears again for future duct cleaning projects and would also recommend your service to others.
August 12, 2014 5
They did everything amazing. They explained to me everything about my air duct problem which I had. They did a very professional job. Thanks to Bernard, Juan and Marcos.
July 25, 2014 5
Please pass along my thanks to Ops Manager Steve for his professional service and advice on the dryer air duct cleaning interval recommendation. Ten years is a long time between cleanings and I will be certain to schedule more frequent cleanings in future.
July 25, 2014 3.8
You could improve upon little lowering your price because there are other companies too who are charging almost the same price. Also, if you could lower price of furnace cleaning.
June 10, 2014 5
I spent more money than anticipated, but Carlos explained all the whys and wherefores and I was satisfied to know how much it would be if I had continued with the other duct company who had ripped me off. I was dealing with the wrong company until now, and hopefully will get many more years from my AC coil with switching to Sears. Thank you very much!
April 22, 2014 4.5
The duct cleaning was great. I also ordered hookups of my washer and dryer with A1 in Beaverton, OR which was to include bringing new supply lines and a drain hose for the washer. After verifying twice this would be done with A1 on their direct office line, they called the day of the install to say they didn't do hoses and didn't have them. So, I don't have a working laundry in my house until I get the hoses myself. Why did they say they could do it? What a let down.
April 08, 2014 5
The technicians arrived early, and despite a difficult situation were able to completely redo our air duct with metal, which gives me great comfort considering we have had rat invasians in the past who chew through are air ducts. Now I feel pretty certain they can't do it again, even though it cost an enormous amount of money to do it. The gentleman were professional about it, not pushy, and did a good job. Once they left the hose on our washer wasn't tightened properly and the gentlemen came back very quickly and corrected the problem.
March 21, 2014 4.8
There was some lint still visible on the outside of the duct but hopefully the entire duct was cleaned all the way to the roof rather than just down to the wall.wallet
March 07, 2014 5
I would recommend Sears duct cleaning/dryer cleaning service to anyone.
March 07, 2014 4.5
Both Dalton and James were professional and extraordinarily respectful. Dalton took the time to explain a few tips around caring for my HVAC system, which was very much appreciated. I need a little time to determine whether the cleaning meets my expectations, as I "live" with it, I will understand those results. I can't speak highly enough of Dalton and James. Thank you.
February 20, 2014 5
I will have to wait and see if the the duct cleaning does make a difference. I would also prefer if the contact person would explain in detail all the possibilities of what extra expenses or extra work might be recommended. I trusted the technicians' knoledge, but did not know if all that was recommended was truly necessary.
February 20, 2014 4.5
The craftsmanship and proffessionalism of crew leader was excellent. The up-selling of an additional furnace vacuming ($99) seemed a bit pricey
December 16, 2013 5
Technicians were friendly, courteous, and professional. They removed or covered shoes before entering my home, they cleaned up after the job was completed, and answered my questions concerning future duct cleaning. Thank you.
December 16, 2013 5
The mission was carried out successfully! So I would like the same guys to return and maintenance my furnace also.
November 29, 2013 4
The lead HVAC technician is great but the cleaning crew left a dense in my wall.
November 15, 2013 5
Bernard was training manager was part of the team as well, he's extremely professional and knowledgeable, he made a huge different in our previous experiences with different duct cleaning company, have more manager like him
October 28, 2013 5
Servicemen were both very friendly and courteous. I have recommended Sears to others for air duct cleaning.
October 28, 2013 4
The customer service representative failed to explain/mention the disinfectant spray application available with the duct cleaning process during the phone order .
October 28, 2013 4
The job was done, but they were very late. The reason given was that the customer before me changed her mind about the service she wanted done after the technician arrived at her house. Instead of just wanting her dryer duct cleaned she wanted them to clean her air conditioner ducts as well. This job takes a long time. Instead of teller her to schedule that work to be done at another time (because they had other customers waiting for them), they did the work then and arrived late to my house. I found out about this when I called at 12:45PM to find out why I hadn't heard from anyone when they were to be at my house between 10AM and 1PM. I understand that they wanted to please this other customer, but I feel I should have been notified they would be late so I could plan around their arrival time.
October 14, 2013 5
Would provide a demonstration via picture or hand wipe of the duct before and after cleaning.
September 27, 2013 5
I was generally pleased with the service, the cutting of the holes in my furnace was a little scary, but apparantly it has to be done, they came late but I was explained they had problems with previous job so thats not a problem. The only thing bad I could say was that the truck pulled up to my basement door and the exhaust pipe blew exhaust into my basement and I had to air it out with a fan for 2 days.
September 13, 2013 4.8
Dustin & Richi were top notch professional team. Worked fast and deligently, paid attention to moving things with caution and no damage......explained the whole cleaning process.......suggested additional cleanings(ie. Furnace and blower) but did not pressure me to do them. Absolutely satisfied with their work and they seem like decent individuals. Sometimes when u have service work done at your house u don't even want to let the technician in the door...thankfully this was not one of those times. Guys were dressed in uniforms, covered there shoes and introduced themselves by name. Will certainly recommend your services.
July 11, 2013 5
Jeff and Santiago took extra effort and time to check the duct system in the attic and on the roof to determine how to handle the elbows in the duct system. If needed in the future, I would like these two to provide the service. Very courteous.
June 24, 2013 3.5
The technicians took about 30 mins to clean the dyer air duct and they asked me for a plastic bag to discard the lint.I wasn't completely satisfied because after the work was done the technician Abazi Redi did not explain the changes that I would see when I used my dryer. In fact, he didn't know which knob was for the dryer or washer. Nonetheless, he had me sign before the work was completed. All the Technicians were polite and respectful.
May 09, 2013 5
This was actually a follow-up to duct cleaning and booster fan installation done last fall. The fan had stopped working and I had the Bham ofc. to come out and get it back in sync.....all was done very fast and by folks that I liked meeting last fall and enjoyed seeing them again. I will have to say that calling your Atlanta call center is not what I will do in the future...I will call Jaren at the Bham ofc for good service. My experiences with the center has not been the best but the Bham folks are wonderful and that's all that counts. Thank you Sears.
May 09, 2013 4.5
Melvin was very professional, offered tips, and showed me parts of the furnace for future reference if the problem may occur with any other service worker. Unfortunately, I felt bad that he had to come out for a 10 minute job at the mistake of another co-worker, but having a new baby in house with no heat for four nights is not acceptable!
April 22, 2013 5
Both technicians were very curteous and friendly. I especially liked the fact that they let me know that I would need to change the air duct soon due to age. I would definitely recommend this service to friends/family.
April 08, 2013 5
Why can't duct cleaning and carpet cleaning be done by the same crew, as it was in the past? It's inconvenient to have to book two separate appointments.
April 08, 2013 5
The two technicians were very personable and knowledge. Would recommend to anyone Sears Duct Cleaning. Thank you . I hope that this help my allergies. Thank you again
April 08, 2013 4.8
Specialist David explained and showed me exactly what he had to do. My simple cleaning got a tad complicated and I found out my dryer hose was disconnected, but it was reconnected and the duct was cleaned. I am happy to now have my dryer back to working order.
April 08, 2013 4
If the technications just make sure the furnace is turned back on before leaving. That was a cold night without no heat. Other than that good job.
April 08, 2013 4
when we made the reservation, it was not explained that duct cleaning without cleaning the furnace coils is not really complete. We were told about this after they started the duct cleaning process and then asked for additional money to also do the coil cleaning. I did not expect Sears to do this to its customers. I felt this information was kept from us to make us request the service.
March 21, 2013 5
The guys were polite, knowledgeable, thorough, and quick. I would definitely use the duct cleaning service again, especially if I could get a Groupon for the cleaning!!
March 21, 2013 5
This service set me back a few bucks but I already feel a difference with the heat flow thank you Sears crew
March 07, 2013 5
The technicians did excellent job and they found problems that our furnace inspector did not find during his last inspection. Thank you very much.
March 07, 2013 5
I've already recommended Sears Air Duct cleaning to my friends, this was our first time using the company and I was very happy with the service and price. Thank you!
February 20, 2013 5
Nothing. Your technician was very polite and helpful. Incidentally, I called Sears rather than one of the many duct cleaners that advertise because I felt I would have someone I could trust to be in my home.
February 06, 2013 5
Your staff behaved very professionally and explained all the details to me. They were polite and courteous, all of them. Carlos sold me additional services beyond the basic duct cleaning, and he very thoroughly explained the condition of my system, what needed to be done, and how often, and he also explained what didn't need to be done on the system. Because of the fly-by-night nature of the duct cleaning business, I had decided to go with a reputable company life Sears, and you did not disappoint.
January 19, 2013 5
Servicemen did an excellent job as my dryer duct has many twists and turns so they cleaned it from the outside and from the inside assuring that all of the lint was removed!!
January 05, 2013 5
The technician was EXCELLENT.................We will soon be in touch fo a heating/air duct cleaning for which he gave us an estimate..........................
November 29, 2012 4.8
The technicians were not able to clean our air duct system due to lack of access and size contraints. However,Chris, the technician was very helpful in informing us and making recommendations. The technicians did clean our heating unit. They were thorough, professional and friendly.
November 15, 2012 5
The fellows who did our duct cleaning were great. They did a great job and were very personable. Thanks.
September 27, 2012 5
The technicians who serviced my home did an outstanding job. I will definitely call Sears again for any duct work cleaning and I hope I am fortunate enough to have the same technicians service my home. I especially Sear's quick response to my request for service. Someone was at my home within a few hours of my request.
September 27, 2012 5
The duct cleaning guys were terrific. They explained everything, worked quickly, took care not to damage anything (including pets), and did a great cleaning job. I also appreciated that they didn't push the deoderizer/disinfectant too much (but we did end up opting for this additional service). I don't see how anything could have been improved.

You’d Be Surprised What’s Lurking In Your Home’s Air Duct System

According to the National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association (NADCA), a typical six-room home creates over 40 pounds of dust annually through everyday living. In addition, the typical family generates a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants such as dander, dirt and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 50 to 70 times per day on average. Over time, this re-circulation can cause a build-up of contaminants in the air duct work.
