Air Duct Cleaning In Kensington Maryland - 5 Tips To Getting Great Service

You can easily find a great air duct cleaning company in Kensington Maryland when you know what to look for. I want to share some insider tips with you, so you can get a quality company to clean your air ducts. Let me introduce myself, my name is Brandon McHale and I clean air ducts for a living. I've cleaned several thousand air duct systems in Montgomery County and I'd like to give you some insider insight. If you want a quality job done that freshens your indoor air, removes the gunk and debris off of your registers and improves the all around efficiency of your HVAC system, just read on.

1. How You Can Find an “Honest” Referral

One of the best ways you can find a great air duct cleaning company is to ask quality local HVAC companies that don't do air duct cleaning. Not only will you get an unbiased referral, but quality companies are only going to refer the best to you. Especially if you're already their client or had them install your system. Davis and Davis heating and air conditioning along with Hoffacker's “Don and Mary Lou” are among the best HVAC companies to service the Kensington area. Neither of these companies clean air ducts, but they are the “good guys” on the block and should steer you in the right direction. So, call a quality HVAC company that doesn't clean air ducts and ask who they would refer to you.

2. Why You Should Avoid Low Priced Coupons

Unfortunately low priced coupons are among some of the worst offenders when it comes to reports of scams. Many of those low coupon companies have actually been sued and had to make their coupon offers more realistic. Low priced coupons and groupons may seem like a great deal. Groupon offers outsource their air duct cleaning and you really have no idea who you're letting into your home. But in this industry you truly get what you pay for. The old adage “You get what you pay for.” rings very true with air duct cleaners in Kensington. Unless you want an unscrupulous salesman walking your home and constantly raising the price... you should avoid low priced coupons. A more realistic budget will be close to $500 per zone. Be very skeptical of low priced offers. And I'll bet a dollar to a doughnut that those low price coupon offers end up costing you a whole lot more than their initial offer. Simply avoid low priced bait and switch offers.

3. Only Consider Companies With Quality Reviews

Great reviews are always a good thing. Look for weighted, lengthy reviews that go into detail about how the customer felt about the company When you're reviewing a company, look for many reviews about their work. Social proof is always a great way to review any company. Ask your friends and family about their experiences. Ask your friends and family if they would consider hiring the company you're considering.

4. You Should Always Ask For a License and Proof of Insurance

Did you know that air duct cleaning companies, in the state of Maryland, don't have to be licensed?

If a company is not licensed it doesn't have to carry insurance. If a worker gets hurt within your home and the company doesn't carry insurance you're liable. You can get sued if a worker hurts themselves. That's pretty darn scary, and what's even scarier is that a majority of the air duct cleaning companies either carry small insurance or none at all. As a homeowner you should always ask for proof of insurance.

5. Knowing The Duct Cleaning Process

Most Kensington air duct cleaners are either going to want a tour of your home and all the register locations, or they will want to start at the HVAC unit. When looking at the HVAC unit they will be considering how to access your system. Your HVAC area should be clear of clutter, so the cleaners don't accidentally break anything while working in that room. They will also need access to every register in your home. You should move any personal items, that you don't want touched, away from registers. Those two steps will ensure that the cleaning process goes smoothly and you'll get a more quality job done. The cleaners will be more focused on cleaning. So clear the doorways to your HVAC room, clear the HVAC unit in a three foot radius and move things away from registers. This will help ensure a thorough and neat air duct cleaning.
