Superior Air Duct Cleaning: Common Scams

Not only do we employ highly experienced service professionals, but we are also certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA). Superior Air Duct Cleaning has obtained and maintains NADCA certification to ensure their customers know that they’re getting the best service possible from highly skilled pros.
Unfortunately, not all air duct cleaning companies are as professional. Many unreliable companies will offer “Rock Bottom Prices”, or deals from coupon offers that promise service for next to nothing. Superior Air Duct Cleaning knows that air duct cleaning, done properly, is a very exacting job that requires a professional, and doing it right is not as cheap as that coupon offer leads you to believe. In today’s blog, Superior Air Duct Cleaning looks at some common scams that you should be aware of.

Bait and Switch
By phone or by mail, you are offered an amazing coupon deal. You are very pleasantly surprised by how cheaply you can have all the ducts in your home or business cleaned. But as the saying goes: “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” This scenario is common. Often what happens is that once in your home, the company will perform minimal work while continuously suggesting upgrades for additional fees. Quite simply, companies with unscrupulous pricing tactics are not likely to do good work. So even if you give in and pay for multiple upgrades, you are still left with duct systems no cleaner than they were before the company arrived. Often these companies will simply clean areas you can easily see, leaving the rest of the ductwork dirty.

The Quick and Dirty Scam
Companies offering cheap coupons will often schedule service to multiple homes in one day in an effort to make money on their cheap prices. This scam consists of pretending to clean the air ducts for a short while before moving on to the next appointment. Again, they’ve only cleaned what you can see. Not only has there been no deep cleaning, but the conditions of your air ducts are probably worse than before. That style of “cleaning” simply pushes the dust and debris farther back into the hard-to-reach areas of your system. There the dirt will remain, pushing microbes into the air you breathe.
Mold Inspection Scam
You have an unbelievable coupon offer and call the company and schedule a visit. Once at your house, they “inspect” for mold. Guess what: they find mold. They always find mold. Now the job will cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. They had no intention of cleaning your air ducts for the low price offered. They came to your house or business to find mold, and they will find it even if you don’t have it. Some unscrupulous companies even go as far as bringing mold spores with them to convince you.
You Get What You Pay For
Reputable air duct cleaning companies like Superior Duct Cleaning might sound more expensive than cut-rate coupon offers, but they are charging an honest price for honest work. The cheap coupon visits become very expensive, and no real work is done.
