I am doing a series of blog posts to address some of the most common questions I receive from homeowners who are considering air-duct cleaning. Today is the first installment. Feel free to use the comments section to add YOUR questions! I'd love to help answer them.
Question #1: I saw an ad for a $29 air duct cleaning. Why are you so much more expensive?
When you think about it, a company that charges $29 cannot even cover the labor and fuel costs incurred by coming to your home! It begs the question, then, what are you getting for that amount of money? The reality is that the $29 price is the "hook." Oftentimes, these less-than-reputable companies will "unexpectedly" find other problems once they are in your home.
A real-life example: We had one customer who called the $29 guys before calling us (we'll call them Company X). Once on site, Company X told the homeowner that they had a mold problem. Company X offered to fix this, of course... for the small fee of $2,000. Thankfully, this homeowner realized they were being scammed by Company X and called us for an estimate to do the job right, which we did... at the quoted price (and there was no mold).
We understand that you have to make the best financial decisions for your family. As a responsible consumer, you should compare prices. Just be sure that you are comparing "apples to apples" and realize that not all prices are equal.
Our method of air-duct cleaning creates a closed system that will not release dirt, pollen and other contaminants out into your home. If not done properly, air duct cleaning can stir up dirt and redistribute it back into your system and your home, making things worse than if you had never had it done! That is the potential danger of the $29 guy.
When you get a DUCTZ price for your air duct cleaning, you know that these components are included:
Just be sure that any quotes you get from other companies include these elements. Then you will know that you are making an informed decision.

Next time I'll address why it's important to get an in-home estimate in advance. Leave a comment or question below if you'd like me to address it in a future post.
