Cleaning your Air Ducts is a great way to start fresh, especially if it has been over 4 years since you last had your Ducts Cleaned, a newly built house, a recent a remodel or if you took care of a pest problem or leak near your vents. Avoiding scammers will not only help you save time and money, but it will also allow you to connect with the true expert that you can trust for years ahead.
BEWARE! The “BEST PRICE” Almost Always Fails To Deliver The Best Quality… Period!
Some of the Red Flags to tell if you are getting scammed!
→ Mold Warnings
Untrustworthy air duct cleaners may just use scare tactics to get you to sign up for either one-time or ongoing air duct cleanings. But as the EPA noted, a Professional mold inspection is necessary before hiring someone to remove said mold. True professionals will expect you to go through the proper channels and double-check their work before spending the money—while scammers may push you to sign on the spot.
→ Unbelievable Rates
That old phrase, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is,” comes into play here. Illegitimate air duct cleaners love to outbid their competitors for offering “whole house duct cleaning” for $99.00 or even at $299.00 In some cases, these deals simply help them get in the door to upsell you for unrelated work or do a quick and unthorough job before disappearing.
→ Blow-And-Go Scam
This old scam has happened so many times that it’s earned a nickname. Blow-and-go scams simply involve the “Professional” coming into your home with a shop vac, quickly vacuuming your vents, and hitting the road for the next house. Reputable experts should inspect all the various parts of your system, not just the vents themselves. It will take one technician an average of 4 hours to properly clean a typical 2500 sq. ft two story home.
→ Bait and Switch Approach
Similar to blow-and-go, the infamous bait-and-switch adds unwanted services on top of what you already agreed to pay. While the advertised price may have looked like it included all your vents, the scammer may claim that the rate only covered a small part of the system. By the time the work is done, you’re paying far more than originally expected. Always be sure to read the small print on flyers and ask them to clarify their contracts before they show up at your door.
Always make sure that the professional provides you with an in writing estimate with all inclusions and exclusions listed before the you hire them and please report any unscrupulous and bait-and-switch tactics to the Colorado Secretary of State and the Better Business Bureau immediately.
