What You Need to Know to Avoid Air Duct Cleaning Scams

Have you ever received one of those phone calls from someone pretending to be the IRS, threatening to send you to jail if you don’t pay a bill you didn’t even know you had? Or, have you ever had a contractor come to your home trying to sell you repairs that you don’t actually need?

Unfortunately, there are many untrustworthy individuals and companies that try to rip people off. That includes some air duct cleaning companies that give our profession a bad name. If you want to get your air ducts cleaned but you’re worried about getting scammed here are some things you can look for to protect yourself.

Any air duct cleaning company that claims they can do a thorough job in less than two hours is trying to scam you. Likewise, any company that offers a whole house cleaning for $99 or even less is trying to scam you. Air duct cleaning an entire home should take about four hours in most cases. Any company that offers a $99 coupon is probably planning on jacking up the price once they get to your home.

Another common scam is to come to your home and after doing a quick check of your ducts the company will tell you they have found something seriously wrong that will require a lot of money to fix. If your air duct cleaning company does anything like this, they are trying to rip you off. You should turn them away and call Better Air Northwest instead.
