How Much Should Air Duct Cleaning Cost In Colesville Maryland?

I'm an air duct cleaner who's cleaned over 6,000 homes in Montgomery County alone. I know the prices of that area and specifically Colesville Maryland because I've lived there most of my life. It's no wonder that people are confused about how much air duct cleaning, in that area, should cost. I can count over 10 air duct cleaning coupons in each Penny Saver ad I receive. The one thing all those ads have in common is their deceptive sales techniques.

I'll get to the average price in a minute, but first I want to share an interesting discovery. I was filling up at the Citgo gas station off of New Hampshire Ave when I saw an acquaintance of mine. He's also an air duct cleaner and he was sub contracted to go off and clean a home up the street. The company that gave him the lead was a big well known company. Matter of fact if I said their name you would immediately recognize them. I'm not going to bad mouth another company but the information I learned later was a bit disturbing.

Before topping off at the tank I asked how much the initial price was for the air duct cleaning. He said it was an $89 coupon and I've seen the ads too. He then showed me a list of items to upsell while he was cleaning. He then told me that the company wanted a minimum of $4,000 to $5,000 per customer. This is a big company, so I know they do a lot of different things. He was to look down a check list and point out anything that needed fixing from roofing to appliances.

I know the average ticket for air duct cleaning in Colesville is $600 regardless of the entry price. You can get deals from legitimate companies and get the price below $500. Just call up one of those low coupon companies to come take a look and you'll quickly experience what I'm talking about. I already know, because I've dealt with them for years. I've even worked with guys who've worked for those companies. If you can manage to get the fast talker out of the door, you'll start to see a pattern with the pricing. If you go for the initial price, you'd be lucky if they properly cleaned one register. I've got some real horror stories about what those people do.

To get a thorough air duct cleaning done in Colesville Maryland you should budget a minimum of $500 per zone. Or, you could call up some of those low offer companies, and don't be surprised if the salesman doesn't preform the work and when the work is scheduled the workers don't speak English. You'll have to call the office so they can communicate to the workers what was already discussed with the salesman. You won't have those types of problems with companies that have more realistic pricing.
