Helpful Tips to Avoid Air Duct Cleaning Scams

One of the most common things we hear about air duct cleaning is that it’s all a scam. Unfortunately, there are too many crooked companies that are scamming the good people of the Vancouver/Portland area. But that doesn’t mean that all air duct cleaning companies are dirty.

Air duct cleaning is a valuable service that all homeowners should have done. You just have to hire the right company to do it. So here are some useful tips to help you avoid air duct cleaning scams.

Bad Reviews – if the company you are considering has a lot of bad reviews, then don’t hire them. Opinions from previous customers are a great way to evaluate a company. Look for companies with a lot of positive reviews.

No Written Estimate – if you can’t get a written estimate then most likely the company is going to try to change the price after they come to your home. Always ask for an estimate or an upfront price.

$99 Special Coupon – a lot of air duct cleaning companies offer their services at super cheap rates, like $99. No legitimate air duct cleaning company will offer to do a job for $99. These companies are just trying to get in your door. Once inside they will try to charge you for other things and jack up the price. If you see one of these coupons, avoid it. It’s a scam.
