Is $99 Duct Cleaning a Scam – Read this First

This is one of the common questions out on the internet right today pertaining to air duct cleaning. Because of the low price, it only stands to reason that homeowners need to proceed with caution. After all, how can trained professionals arrive at your house, anywhere in the Twin Cities, in a well equipped tuck, work for 45 minutes to a couple hours and leave with only $99, right?

I know it sounds too good to be true but, let me explain. First, I assume you have already read about duct cleaning on this blog. If not, here are a few posts you might want to read first:

Whenever I am talking with customers that call in with questions about duct cleaning or to schedule a cleaning service I always ask them how long it’s been since they had their duct work cleaned. If they say last year, I don’t even bother asking them anymore questions. If they called in wanting the $99 deal that’s what I would recommend anyway.

If, on the other hand, they answer that it has been several years or perhaps never, I advise them to go with the rotobrush method. Here’s why; I am sure you have all seen the caked on grime that accumulates behind the refrigerator or stove, right. That “crud” is very similar to what adheres to the inside walls of your air ductwork. Imagine pulling the kitchen stove out and trying to simply vacuum it up. We all know that brushing or scrubbing is necessary.

The same holds true with duct cleaning. If it was just cleaned with a rotobrush last year, the $99 duct cleaning will most likely be adequate. But, if it has been a few years, I would strongly recommend the rotobrush method.

If you are ready to get on the scheule for either the rotorush method or the $99 air-sweep, give us a call at 612-412-1867, we would love the opportunity to showcase our work for you.

    Yes, if only it was limited to the internet. Duct cleaning (as well as all in-home services) scams have been around since long before the days of the internet I’m afraid. Let the buyer beware and do your homework before hiring a duct cleaner.

    You completed some nice points there. I did a search on the topic of “HVAC” and found a good number of folks will consent with your duct cleaning blog.
