Is air duct cleaning a scam?

Is duct cleaning a scam ? – No…Not if done by an expert company !!!

Day after day and year after year, people call us in their search for the right duct cleaning. We can hear in their voices thier state of confusion from the contradicting and unclear answers they gathered so far from different companies they called upon. Whether they’ve been misguided by an unqualified ” salesperson ” or someone trying to convince them that their primitive cleaning methods can still do the job, it is quite understandable that the ” regular Joe ” can quickly get confused. That is why we enjoy taking the time to thoroughly explain to everyone, the right techniques and procedures to use so that it can finally make some sense to them. That is also why we have our videos on our website, so they know what to expect from a duct cleaning.

In our opinion, the quality of work in the air duct cleaning industry, varies more than any other service that we can think of. We have heard many horrible stories from unhappy clients, and many of these less than satisfying results come from big name companies ( which we won’t mention ).

Complaints vary from:

  • dust all over the house after the job,
  • damage to the home,
  • job done in one hour,
  • undelivered promises from the salesperson,

and the list goes on and on. None of these should ever happen !!

Like everyone, you want the best duct cleaning possible. There’s no doubt that you don’t want to give your hard earned money away just to find out you got scammed ! The thing is you’ll probably never even know if you got scammed or not if you don’t do your homework. There are many things to look for when shopping, but even then too many companies don’t deliver what they promised on the phone cause they’re betting on the fact that they’ll be able to sneak one pass you once on the job site or that you won’t have the nerve to refuse to pay them on a job half done.

At Air Plus, all of our work is guaranteed! What you see on the homepage videos is what you get, nothing less !!!

Through all of these scary facts you have to keep in mind that there is a right way to THOROUGHLY clean ducts and of the importance of doing so, after all, your ducts are the ” lungs ” of your home and office. All the air that you breath is filtered 24/7 through the dirt and debris that have found a home in your ventilation system over the years. Uncleaned ventilation systems provide an ideal environment to harbor mold,fungi and bacterie, which become airborne and find their way in your respiratory system which have been proven to be highly unhealthy to breathe.

Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to:

  • asthma
  • headaches
  • dry eyes
  • nasal congestion
  • repetitive colds
  • lack of energy

Here are some quick facts:

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency:

– Indoor air can be 2 to 5 times greater than in outdoor air and is one of the top five environmental risks to public health.
– Less than 1/2 inch of dirt on your heating coils can decrease efficiency by 21%, thus increasing your heating bills.

And these troubling facts from World Health Organization

-Nearly 50% of pneumonia deaths among children under five are due to particulate matter inhaled from indoor air pollution.
-More than 1 million people a year die from chronic obstructive respiratory disease (COPD) that develop due to exposure to such indoor air pollution.
