Have you ever had your air ducts cleaned out?

If so, how often?

No, we've never had it done either....

Dang..... it sounds like we should all move to Sweden and rent an apartment so we can get our ducts cleaned every six months for free like Hanna..... lol

Missy - that is crazy expensive.... sounds like it's a business we need to get into, doesn't it?

I would shop around Missy.  I do not remember what it cost when we had ours cleaned but it wasn't all that much.

We haven't either. My vents are disgustingly dirty and when I dust, maybe 2 days go by and it looks like it needs to be done again. I had a guy come out and give me an estimate. $1700!!! He said he would take 40% off and it would only cost us $1068. Ummm no thanks. I had no idea it was that expensive.

Nope.   I could see me doing the shop vac thing like Shelly did.

No, but once we had the carpet all pulled up I did take the vents up and run the shop vac down in them. YUCK!!!!!

We did in our other home but not in this one.  Only had it done once because you could really see the dust on the air vents.  It was time.
