Finding a reputable air duct cleaning service is important if you want the job done right and your home respected during the cleaning process. Here are a few tips to finding a quality cleaner in your area.
Before hiring any company to clean your air ducts, ask questions and listen to the answers. Look for knowledgeable answers, not a sales pitch. Ask questions like…
- How long they’ve been in business?
- Why air ducts need cleaning?
- Are the employees screened for criminal background?
- How long does the cleaning process take?
- What is required of you the day of the cleaning?
- Do you carry workman’s compensation and liability insurance?
- Are services are guaranteed?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association is a group that sets standards for service and certifies air duct cleaners. This online source offers recommendations and tips for consumers on how to hire cleaners. Included is a checklist to ensure the technicians perform all the tasks necessary for a thorough cleaning. This is an excellent place for consumers to gain knowledge, find recommendations, and learn the basics about air duct cleaning.
Ask for Referrals
Ask neighbors or local businesses who they have hired to clean their air ducts. Call your HVAC contractor to ask them who they recommend, installing heating and air conditioning systems; they will know who performs quality workmanship. There are numerous online consumer advocacy websites, check for online air duct cleaning reviews.
Check with the BBB
Check with the Better Business Bureau or other agency to see if complaints have been filed against the company. If the company has no complaints, good references, and a knowledgeable staff then they will likely provide a quality service to you.
