Air Duct Cleaning Cost, In The DC Metropolitan Area, The Truth May Surprise You

In the dirty industry of air duct cleaning it's hard to get the truth. If you'd finally like to know how much legitimate air duct cleaning costs, what to expect and how to get a quality job done, then I wrote this article for you. You'll find all those answers plus a way to find the best bargain from great air duct cleaning companies.

Legitimate Air Duct Cleaning Doesn't Come From Low Priced Coupons

All those low priced coupons should have a big red stamp that reads "Scam". If you read the fine print on those $89 coupons, it clearly states that there is a maximum number of vents cleaned. That maximum number is usually below 12. The average home has more than 12 registers, and that gives them bargaining room. I can't count how many of my, now loyal, customers have been burned by low priced coupons. Those customers actually paid more to a scammy company, rather than a legitimate company, that preformed unsatisfactory work.

What To Expect When Getting Your Air Ducts Cleaned

A thorough air duct cleaner will go to every register in your home. The techs will want to start by attaching negative pressure to your air ducts. The negative pressure is applied by suction. The suction could come from a duct truck or a portable vacuum. Since your air ducts have two sides, they will want to do one side at a time. Starting on the supply side is a good practice, but either supply or return can be started on. Quality companies will use pneumatic tools to agitate and loosen the debris in your system. Once the debris is agitated it's sucked up by the vacuum. This process should start at the furthest point from the vacuum. That point is usually the master bathroom vent. Then they repeat the process and work towards the vacuum. They should go to every register in your home and clean those branches. Then they should clean those trunk lines and finally clean the plenum.

How To Get A Quality Job Done

Simply steer clear of scam artists and hire a quality company. You'll actually pay less and get a much more thorough cleaning. You can also get more out of the air duct cleaning company by doing some simple things. The more you prep your home the more the techs can focus on cleaning . If you move furniture away from registers and clear an area around the HVAC unit, the technicians will have more time for cleaning. It may sound simple, but the easier you make it for them to clean your system the more thorough they will be. You might not realize that the air duct cleaners have a tight time block to clean your system. When you lighten that load for them, it goes a long way. They'll spend all that saved time on your air ducts.

How To Get The Best Bargain By Reducing Your Air Duct Cleaning Cost

Air duct cleaning is a seasonal business. There's a slow period right after Christmas to the middle of January. This is the time period that air duct cleaners are scratching for work. Those companies have to make payroll, while no jobs are being scheduled. The company has two choices. They can either dip into their funds or accept new work that's under priced. While hungry employees crowd the office, which do you think they'll choose? The best bargain is as simple as supply and demand. If you can wait until January you'll get the best deal. Call several companies and disclose the price that the other company gave you. Don't embellish too much, they know that if you refer to a price under $300 that your referring to an inferior company. That's one of the best ways to haggle a great price from quality companies. But please! You didnt' hear that from me.

Stay away from those low priced coupons. Once you know the air duct cleaning process, and what to expect, it'll better prepare you to prep your home. A prepped home gets more attention to the duct work. If you can wait to schedule in January, and have some haggling skills, you'll get the best price.
