Tips for Choosing a Duct Cleaning Company

Choosing a reputable duct cleaning company in Milwaukee sounds easy right? Experts warn homeowners and businesses to do their research on duct cleaning companies to avoid getting scammed. What to look for when hiring a duct cleaning company in Milwaukee and surrounding areas:

Choose NADCA Certified

Choosing a NADCA Certified duct cleaning company ensures you’re hiring a company that’s completed the required hours of expert industry training, along with a signed code of conduct that promises to do ethical work that keeps the customer in mind first.

Duct Cleaning Costs

Look for flat-rate pricing – avoid “vent counting.” One of the most common local duct cleaning scams includes companies that use cheap duct cleaning prices to get their foot in the door (for the first few vents in fine print), then pile on the extra charges to clean the rest of the vents. Why on earth would anyone have only 3 vents cleaned?! Go with a Milwaukee duct cleaning company that uses honest flat-rate pricing that includes everything. The initial duct cleaning cost may be higher, but you’ll end up paying less in the end.

Hire only licensed and insured duct cleaning companies. If they’re not licensed there’s probably a reason why. And if they’re not insured, you’re at risk if there’s an accident. Check credible sources like Better Business Bureau or Angie’s List to check a duct cleaning companies credentials.

Duct Cleaning Equipment

While getting your air ducts cleaned regularly is important, it’s more important to make sure you’re working with a reputable Heating and Cooling Company who uses professional grade duct cleaning equipment and the latest industry techniques. Without the proper knowledge, industry Air Duct Cleaning Truckexpertise and equipment, other air duct cleaning companies are forced to come back on a more frequent basis due to their inability to perform the most thorough cleaning possible, costing you more time and more money.

Failure to follow proper air duct cleaning procedures and utilize up-to-date equipment can actually cause indoor air problems. For example, an inadequate vacuum collection system can actually release more dust, dirt and contaminants! A careless or inadequately trained Milwaukee air duct cleaner can damage your ducts or your heating and cooling system. These second-rate services usually lead to an increase in air duct cleanings, costly HVAC repairs, even an entire HVAC replacement!

Avoid companies that use portable duct cleaning equipment; you’ll know it, because it looks like a shop vacuum. Jack of all trades…master of none. A carpet cleaning company or a store sells sweaters and tractors for example may do those things well, but let’s face it – residential and commercial air duct cleaning is not their specialty. Avoid companies that don’t have the right equipment or training to do the job right.
