Clean Vent is a short task in Among Us, featured on The Skeld, MIRA HQ, and The Airship. It was added in version 2021.6.30.[1]


Clean Vent is completed at the assigned vent. To complete the task, Crewmates must interact with and open the vent, then clean out the debris by tapping or clicking on them. Anyone in a vent in the same chain as one being cleaned will be prevented from using or traveling to that vent in use by a Crewmate, and anyone currently inside the vent being cleaned will be forced out of it once a Crewmate begins the task, accompanied by a sound effect.


  • Due to the vents being "holes" on Polus, it is not possible to clean the vents on that map.
  • This is the first and so far the only task to be added without a dedicated map to go with it, and instead applied to all maps except Polus.
  • The Task Tester 2000 interface in Freeplay lists Clean Vent in Cafeteria on The Skeld and MIRA HQ, and in Cargo Bay on The Airship. The assigned location upon selecting the task is random.
  • Tennis balls, pizza slices, and hairpins are spawned in the vent to be cleaned.
  • Although there are cobwebs at the two corners of the vent, they cannot and are not needed to be cleaned.
  • Engineers with Clean Vent must do this task on the specified vent before they are able to enter it.
    • However, it does not prevent them from using the vent system said vent is connected to.
      • In an older version of Among Us, Engineers could remain in a vent they needed to clean indefinitely because they could not be forced out of that vent. This has now been fixed.
