Hiring air duct cleaning services is a great way to remove trapped contaminants in your heating and cooling system. These contaminants can be a major contributor to the waste of 25% to 40% of the energy used by your system and can also do a lot to improve the indoor air quality in your home. These are good reasons to make sure you hire the right company to do the job. Unfortunately, air duct cleaning scams are fairly common.
Very Low Air Duct Cleaning Cost
This is a common tactic used by untrustworthy companies. It’s a tactic used to attract as many customers as possible. The price on these coupons is usually $50-$100. After the work is done, you’ll probably be told that it only applies to a certain number of vents and the price will then jump drastically. The low price will lure you in and then increases once the work is done. The regular price for air vent cleaning is $300 to $400.
Air Duct Mold Inspection Add On
Be wary of mold inspection coupons. Avoid a company that offers a free mold inspection with the cleaning. They will ALWAYS find mold even if it’s not there and then the price of your service jumps up dramatically. Some companies may even bring in a positive mold test to convince you that you have it when you probably don’t have it at all. Legitimate companies will include the mold inspection and don’t need to offer it as an added service.
Only Hire Licensed & Experienced Air Duct Cleaners
Avoid getting scammed and make sure the company you’re considering is licensed by the state. If it’s unclear, ask for proof before you move forward to make sure they follow the right business practices and have the correct knowledge of HVAC cleaning. This also ensures that you’re working with a company that has a history of providing quality service.
Read Online Reviews & Referrals of Air Duct Cleaning Companies
Another way to make sure you’re hiring a trustworthy company is to read online ratings. Too many complaints should have you moving on to the next business. You can also check with the Better Business Bureau. Personal referrals from family and friends is very helpful or you can ask your HVAC technician if they know of a trustworthy air cleaning service.
Air Duct Cleaning Process
Ask about the cleaning process before you hire a company to get a feel of whether or not the company is legitimate. The service should start with an inspection of the unit and the ductwork. Then a vacuum system with special brushes and scrubbers will be used to pull dirt and debris out of the system. The service will then end with a final inspection. Don’t hire a company that is vague about their process.
