Air Duct Cleaning Scams

air-duct-scam-300x200One of the most frequently asked questions is, can you explain these coupons I keep getting in the mail with the $49 and $79 specials? This so-called whole house air duct cleaning service does not exist for this price! The extra charges start piling up immediately after they walk in the door. The act I hear of most often is, two guys show up to your door with a little vacuum that you could buy at Home Depot for $50 and another guy with a notepad or extra work order paperwork ready to go over all of the problems and reasons why you need to spend more money that day. It’s also common for them to open the doors on your furnace and say right away that you have mold or mildew in the system, And you have to pay for a $400 up to $2000 service to remove that mold and you’re in grave danger if you don’t. This kind of advertising is nothing more than a bait and switch. These technicians can become very rude if you don’t agree to spend some extra money. Scheduling an appointment with one of these companies almost guarantees a very uncomfortable, unsatisfying experience with air duct cleaning. Thankfully there are companies out there with reputations that speak for themselves. You can check the Better Business Bureau website to reference the negative reviews written about these fraudulent duct cleaning companies. Researching reviews from multiple sources is another really nice tool to use when selecting an air duct cleaning company. You can easily find reviews written about each duct cleaning company on Google, Yelp, and Bing.
The air duct cleaning service itself should be an awesome experience for everybody involved. When the job is done right, it is easy to see that there is a very good reason to have the air ducts cleaned in your home. When selecting an air duct cleaning company do yourself a favor and do the research before falling victim to the bait and switch scam.
