Need to hire an air duct cleaning service for your home in Westminster CO? You may be spending several hundred dollars, and scam artists may try to convince you there’s dangerous mold or health issues in your ducts to get you to spend even more money. For instance, that $49 coupon that came in the mail might end up costing you a whole lot more.

Never fear; here are some tips to ensure you’re hiring a reputable air duct cleaner and not just a blow-and-go company who’s trying to scam you.

Do you really need an air duct cleaning service?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends cleaning your air ducts every three to five years. The EPA doesn’t suggest a specific timeline, but recommends doing so if you have substantial mold growth, a vermin infestation or excessive amounts of dust and debris in your system.

Avoid the bait-and-switch scam

One of the most common scams among unscrupulous cleaners is to get their foot in the door with a $49 “whole-house” cleaning price in a coupon or mailer, then pile on many extra charges or upsell services.

Once they start talking about “extra returns” and “main lines,” you can end up paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in unexpected fees for the “$49” cleaning. A good air duct cleaning, properly done by a certified contractor, is going to cost at least a few hundred dollars. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Many of these ads list a limit in the fine print, such as 10 vents and one main trunk line, but most homes have more than 10 vents and at least two main trunks. Companies usually add extra charges for all these other lines. Total Air Solutions in Westminster Colorado does not! And even if you get them to do the work for the advertised price, a lot of these “blow and go” contractors just stick a vacuum over the vents and call it a day. A true air duct cleaning service includes much more than that.

Mold is an important concern, but get a second opinion if someone tries the hard sell on you about mold.

What should I look for in a good air duct cleaner?

Most states and cities don’t license air duct cleaners, so you’ll need to vet them some other way. (Total Air Solutions is a member of NATE) Ask for proof of liability insurance and workers’ compensation coverage.

Any reputable company will have this coverage and be happy to provide written proof. If they won’t do so, find another company — this one is probably unreliable, and you could be on the hook for big money if they damage your house or one of their employees is injured while on your property.

Make sure the company has been around a while and kept the same name. If a company has been around your community for years, they’re unlikely to disappear next week if you have a problem. If the air duct cleaning company popped up three weeks ago and doesn’t have an office location listed, treat them skeptically.

Aaron Garner, Owner of Total Air Solutions has been a member of NATE for over 7 years and 25+ years experience and is considered a leader in the HVAC Repair & Services Industries and a specialist in Air Duct Cleaning in Westminster CO and throughout the Denver area. Doesn’t it make sense to have an experienced HVAC repair and service technician to clean your air ducts?

Ask the company whether they follow EPA guidelines for air duct cleaning service and follow through to make sure they do so.
