Ductwork Cleaning – How Much Does It Cost?

For every business in the UK, ductwork cleaning is a requirement by law. And with many different types of heating, ventilation and air conditioning units around, and with so many risks to take into consideration should your ductwork cleaning not be done properly, it is also a requirement that it is carried out by ductwork cleaning professionals. So how much is that likely to cost?

Asking how much ductwork cleaning will cost without having had someone come for a site survey is a little like asking ‘how long is a piece of string?’ Not only is every business premises different, every heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system will have been constructed differently, to tie in with the surroundings and set up of the building, as well as for your specific business needs, such as special facilities required for commercial kitchens, hospitals and other care environments.

It is for this reason that, at Ingot Services, you will benefit from a free of charge, no obligation site visit before we quote for your ductwork cleaning job, to ensure that you get the very best value for money and a thorough service. And we guarantee to match any price you are quoted, and to stick to that price for the next three years.

What to Look Out For When Comparing Ductwork Cleaning Quotes

Of course, with budgets tight, it is important to shop around for the most competitive quote for your ductwork cleaning. But while the cheapest may sometimes also offer the best value, it is also important to ensure that you are comparing like for like.

As well as the cost, it is a good idea to look at quality, to ensure you don’t end up paying for a company to come in and clean up what a less scrupulous company has left behind. The following questions should help you to compare your ductwork cleaning companies more easily:

What References Do You Have?

As with any service that you are procuring, it is a good idea to ask for references for the ductwork cleaning companies you are asking to quote for your work.

At Ingot Services, the quality of our work, coupled with our price match promise, mean that our customer relationships stand the test of time. We have testimonials from a good number of our clients, and should you wish to contact some of them, we can easily provide you with their names and numbers.

What Ductwork Cleaning Credentials Do You Have?

This is a very important question. In order to be compliant, your chosen ductwork cleaning company needs to be fully registered and accredited by the HVCA. Membership of the HVCA can only be achieved via approved qualification or experienced practitioner routes, so you can be sure of a good job.

As well as being fully HVCA registered, Ingot Services is a member of the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme and a Safe Contractor Registered firm.

What Experience Do You Have?  In My Industry?

Finding out about the experience the ductwork cleaning companies have within your industry will enable you to make sure they have the knowledge of the type of debris and bacteria that could be lurking in your ductwork, cleaning it out to ensure health and safety is maintained.  For instance, in a kitchen environment, there will be a lot more greasy build up within the ducts, which needs to be removed to help prevent the risk of fire.

With over 25 years’ experience Ingot Services has an enviable reputation for high quality work. We have clients throughout the UK within the full range of businesses, including local authorities, schools and care homes, and Michelin Star restaurants through to pubs and cafes.

What Is Your Process And Which Elements Are Included In Your Ductwork Cleaning?

While it may sound straightforward, and it may be assumed that a ductwork cleaning company will include every part of the HVAC system within their quote, it is worthwhile checking. And finding out just how the system will be cleaned is also worthwhile, not only to enhance your own understanding, but to ensure that you are happy that your obligations are met.

During our free, no obligation site visit our engineer will be happy to talk you through our ductwork cleaning process, the tools we use and the time it is likely to take for your unique system.

Ductwork Cleaning – The Hidden Cost of Ignoring It

With your ductwork not in immediate view, it can be very easy to put it to the back of the list when it comes to cleaning priorities. But with a host of problems that may occur without regular ductwork cleaning – from harmful bacteria through to fire, as well as possible fines for not meeting your legal obligations, and invalid insurance should the worst happen, not having your ductwork cleaning done can be a lot more expensive than commissioning a ductwork cleaning company on a regular basis.
