Man Learns Tough Lesson About Shady Air Duct Cleaning Companies

No one wants to be the victim of a scam but at that same time everyone wants to get a good deal. Unfortunately, many times, when it comes to getting some kind of service done, you can’t get a good deal without getting scammed. Getting your air ducts cleaned is a valuable service, but you can’t get it done for a super low price. A quality air duct cleaning takes time and effort and it will cost a few hundred dollars at least, depending on the size of your home.

If you ever receive an offer for a $99 air duct cleaning, or even lower, it’s not a real service, it’s just a scam. A man in Washington D.C. learned that lesson the hard way. He called a company after receiving a coupon in the mail for a $59 basic air duct cleaning. However, as soon as technician showed up he claimed there was mold. He also told the customer he needed a UV light for his furnace, which would kill any bacteria and mold. Nearly $2,400 later and the man’s furnace quit working.

He ended up hiring another company to fix the problem then learned he could have paid less than $500 for the work he had done by the original company. Unfortunately for this man it was a very expensive lesson to learn the hard way.
