Your home is perhaps one of your most valuable assets, so keeping it clean is part of the routine chores that you should perform to keep the structure and appliances in optimal condition.
Professional air duct cleaners provide you with a series of services that include duct cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, furnace cleaning, a/c cleaning, chimney cleaning, and many other services related to your home’s heating and cooling system. Most duct cleaning services also include the cleaning of furnaces, air conditioning systems, ductwork, chimneys, water heaters and other routine household maintenance chores. They may also offer transit duct cleaning, vent cleaning, air duct sanitizing, etc.

In deciding whether or not you should consider air duct cleaning, it is important to weigh the pros & cons. In a recent post on the Duct Cleaning Twin Cities blog, the author a Duct Cleaner from Minneapolis, has pointed out several things to keep in mind when making that decision.

Some of the “pros” listed are; contaminant removal, the benefit of breathing clean air, affordability and even dusting less. The “cons” mentioned included; the scams associated with duct cleaning, wide price ranges, incomplete cleaning methods and price gouging.

People are often wondering about air duct cleaning prices. one company says one thing, another company says another. The EPA says if you are going to hire an air duct cleaner, then “go all out” and spend a lot of money($450 – $1,000). Air duct cleaning scam artists, on the other hand, just want to get their foot in the door so they can take as much money as you will let them.

We don’t blame you for being worried. Anytime you hire a stranger to come into your home it can be a little unnerving. And, as in any industry, there are companies that give our industry a bad rap. As a professional air duct cleaning company, I would like to mention a few things regarding hiring air duct cleaning companies. Check with the BBB, ask for RECENT referrals, join Angie’s List. These should be steps you take whenever you hire a service company to come into your home.

We thought this interview was worth posting as it clearly defines the importance of air duct cleaning. While the author of the 10 year old EPA publication about air duct cleaning down plays the connection between allergies and dirty air ducts, common sense and even allergists tell us otherwise.
If you suffer from allergies and haven’t had your air ducts cleaned recently, we recommend spending the $99 and just taking care of it. Make sure the duct cleaner you hire also has the ability to thoroughly clean and inspect your furnace while they are out.
Out with summer, in with indoor allergies
