Local duct cleaning specialist reveals secrets some duct cleaners don’t want consumers to know


Buffalo, NY – Air Duct cleaning Buffalo expert, Robert Garman, has noticed a significant increase in the number companies advertising duct cleaning services. Air duct cleaning companies advertise in the newspaper, on the internet and by mailing out flyers. With so many Air duct cleaning companies offering services for various prices, how does one make a wise choice?

There are some air duct cleaning contractors that boast the lowest prices and best value, ranging from $60 - $100. In today’s economy, this can be very attractive to the unsuspecting homeowner looking for a bargain.

Robert Garman owner of DUCTZ of Buffalo (http://www.ductcleaningbuffalo.com/) is upsetting the competition as he reveals secrets that some air duct cleaning contractors do not want the public to know. “One common scam is when the air duct cleaning contractor enters your home and performs his “inspection” he will announce that you need additional services not covered by the advertisement. This bait and switch scam is quite popular among specialized contractors who take advantage of the average homeowner who is not an expert in the field.”

Garman revealed some interesting facts about air duct cleaning service.” “Air duct cleaning can cost up to $1,000 per HVAC system, depending on the services, size of the system and the level of contamination. Contrary to popular belief, dust mites do not live in duct work.”

Robert Garman provides tips to homeowners so they can make a wise choice in hiring a duct cleaning specialist. “The Better Business Bureau is a great resource for finding a reputable air duct cleaning service. They can provide a list of Accredited Businesses that specialize in air duct cleaning services.”

Avoid companies who recommend air duct cleaning as a routine part of HVAC maintenance. The EPA recommends air duct cleaning as needed, not on a regular basis.

Get several written estimates, find out how long the company has been in business and check references.

Ask what their service includes and if they will be doing a complete cleaning, including coils and fans. Also ask about chemicals they use and understand the benefits and the risks.

Only consider air duct cleaning companies who are licensed, insured and certified in HVAC system cleaning. Choose a company that is a member of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.

According to Garman, a reputable air duct cleaning service may cost more money, but they will do the job correctly. An unlicensed contractor who is not certified in HVAC system cleaning can actually do more harm than good.
