3 Reasons why you shouldn’t rush to clean the air ducts

May not solve health issues

Dust from outside, pollen was blown into the house by the wind, pet dander, dust mites, dust particles in the drapes and carpeting, and tracked in dirt may be sources of the allergens. Therefore, cleaning the ductwork without identifying the source of the problem will only cost you money without actual results.

Some air duct cleaning deals are scam

First, we would like to mention that there are honest, legitimate, and reputable air duct cleaning services from HVAC providers out there. However, there are equally as many scammers who offer false duct cleaning services online or in real life. You might be surprised when a con artist shows up at your doorstep offering to clean the air ducts for less than $100. Kindly note that reputable duct cleaning services cost between $500 and $1500.

The inside of the ducts may not be dusty

Maybe you saw that dust was building up on the registers of the ducts. Dust build-up on the outside does not mean that the ductworks are full of dust. In fact, according to Bob Vila, HVAC scammers usually use the layer of dust on the registers to convince people to buy ductwork cleaning services that they don't really need. The ductwork registers are the metal grills that cover the air ducts (return air).
