Arrival times may be affected by weather or other unknown factors. All appointments are scheduled for a minimum of half a day, and it’s requested that the homeowner is present on the property throughout the appointment time. All prices given are estimated and may be subject to change.

  • Arrival: Our technicians arrive at your door and prepare the outside parking area if necessary. The technicians place caution cones to bring attention to potential tripping hazards (from our air hoses) and indicate safe walking areas around the truck and property.

  • Inspection: Our technicians will perform a complete system inspection to ensure there is no visible damage, fire code violations, broken or disconnected piping, and air flow restrictions. We check to ensure that a proper vent with pest guard is installed. Our technician will use this time to make any recommendations to improve efficiency or to bring your system up to current fire codes.

  • Interior Cleaning: The interior of a dryer can hold, on average, 10-20% of all dryer lint. Keeping the lint trap clean before and after each load is a good way to keep the system running better, but lint buildup still occurs inside the dryer and dryer piping. Our technicians use high pressure compressed air to safely and effectively remove any buildup inside the dryer unit. Our specialized air wands reach down into the dryer cavities and fan, ensuring a complete and thorough job.

  • Exterior Cleaning: Dryer vent piping can quickly become a fire hazard if not properly maintained. Lint and other debris gets trapped inside the dryer vent piping and restrict airflow to the outside. This may result in a loss of efficiency and become a major fire concern. Our technicians clean the entire dryer vent piping using our spinning air snake to scrub and remove any lint or debris.

  • System Cycle: After the system is clean, our technician will perform a system cycle and airflow test. This cycle is essential to blow out any remaining particles that may be floating around in the piping. An airflow and pressure test will ensure the system is clean and operating efficiently.

  • New Installation: Now that the dryer system is completely clean, our technicians can perform any additional services requested by the homeowner. These services can include: repair or replacement of damaged piping, replacing damaged vents, installing animal or bird guards, and other items that may be required.

  • Cleanup: Our technicians always treat each and every home with the utmost care and always conduct a complete work area clean up before leaving. We vacuum the area around and inside your dryer unit, wipe down the top dryer unit, and collect any large debris outside the home.
    Leave the work space cleaner than the way you found it!

  • Payment: Each homeowner is provided with a reminder magnet on their dryer as a record of the cleaning completed that day. We also provide an on the spot invoice, and accept Visa, MasterCard or cheque.

Great work Dr Duct! We appreciated your thoroughness and attention to the smaller details that guarantee a first-class job! This year, thanks to your fine work, we can say that as far as our home is concerned Spring really did arrive early.

Renée & John

The guys arrived on time and did an excellent job. They invited us to watch the monitor as they were cleaning the ductwork. Very professional. Will hire them again.


The guys were very professional, great job, I was even able to watch it all on the screen. That was a eye opener. Would definitely recommend them.


I had great experience with these guys. Came on time, put a lot of effort and attention to detail. Their price was 30% cheaper than their competitors (they had a promo at that time). As it turned out a lot of the HVAC companies in Ottawa re-sell third party duct cleaning services..


Third time that I have used Dr. Duct. I am very happy with the results. Excellent service. Great team of workers.


I highly recommend Dr. Duct. I shopped around and they gave the best estimate. They arrived as scheduled, did a great job, cleaned up and the price was as originally quoted. They were extremely professional and cheerful.


I am well pleased with the services I received with Dr. Duct. These guys did a great job replacing my dryer piping and repairing a rattling air duct. Very reasonable prices too.
