You probably see them every week.  Those deals in the paper or advertisement in your mailbox, promising discounted duct cleaning services.  Maybe they are offering cleans for $49.99 or $10 a vent, either way it is important to do your research and read the fine print.

If it seems like too good of a deal, it likely is.

The first concern in this situation is that they will not clean your system properly. Finding out that dirt and debris are still remaining in your systems after a cleaning might make you feel taken advantage of.

Here are some facts about those “low priced” duct cleaning services:

  • In many cases, these cheap prices do not include cleaning the main ductwork trunk lines.
  • The company might clean only portions of the system, leaving problem areas untouched.
  • You might find yourself in an “up-sell” situation, where the technicians try to sell you on additional work that might not be needed. Some companies even pay commissions on this.
  • They might not have the necessary equipment to perform an in-depth and quality clean on your system.

The only way to stop these scams, is to not fall for them in the first place.  Would you still pay for an oil change on your car if the company did not even change your oil? Let’s stop paying for system cleans that are not effective!
