What is the difference between vent cleaning and air duct cleaning?

There are many air duct cleaning companies in Las Vegas that characterize themselves as air duct cleaners and unfortunately have made many Las Vegas homeowners skeptical about air duct cleaning.

These companies offer services that are limited to “vent cleaning.”

What is Vent cleaning vs. Air Duct Cleaning?

Rather than using compressed air and air agitators to clean and supply duct lines and cleaning inside the air vents, these companies will simply remove the grills and vents and clean inside the vents with a basic vacuum. This method is not mandated by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. Without cleaning the dirt, dust, and debris that has built up on the walls of the return and supply duct lines with compressed air, the duct system is not really clean.

  1. That is absurd. What kind of cleaning method is that? It will still be filled with dust and other dirt overnight. Cleaning should be comprehensive meaning, that it should include all the ducts.

    • Thank you for your comment Lindsey. We agree – vent cleaning can be a waste, which is why we focus on indoor air quality meaning we include all air ducts, the dryer vent, vacuuming and covering all aspects of improving the air quality.

      Thanks again!

  2. Wow, I had no idea that some air duct cleaners don’t clean absolutely everything in the ducts. However, it is nice that there are certified and trained companies that will do more than sweep the air ducts. The quality of the duct cleaning really impacts the performance of your air conditioning system, so it’s important to not take the cleaning lightly!
