Watch Out For The $99-$199 Scams
No reputable air duct cleaning will tell you that they will clean all your ducts for $99 or $199 because it would be a straight lie! In order for a company to clean the ventilation system correctly they need to spend 3-4 hours minimum at your house scrubbing all dirt and gunk inside your vents. The scammers will go to your house and spend maybe an hour and say that all your ducts are cleaned but this is impossible.
What is A Bait & Switch Scam?
When they tell you the cost to clean all your ducts will be $99 or $199 but when they arrive at your home and pretend to work they will tell you they found other issues inside if your ducts that require hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars more. This is one of the most common home service scams in the United States currently costing home owners millions of dollars each year.
