A Checklist for Hiring a Duct Cleaning Contractor

Now that it’s getting colder outside, it is important to remember to have your ducts cleaned. Cleaning the air ducts will help your furnace run more efficiently because the air will be able to move more easily through the system (without all that dirt). Duct cleaning can also help you breathe easier because it also removes the dust, dander and other allergens that many people may be allergic to.

When you schedule your duct cleaning, there are certain questions you should be asking your contractor. These will let you know just how professional the company is; if your prospective contractor cannot answer these questions, you will want to move on to the next choice.

Questions You Should Ask Your Duct Cleaning Contractor:

• First, make sure to ask the contractor if his company performs air duct and furnace cleaning services. He should follow the guidelines that were set forth by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA). This means that his company should clean both supply and return air ducts, clean and replace all of the registers and grills, as well as seal the panel access.

• Ask about the contractor’s equipment. He should have specialized tools that allow him to safely and effectively clean all types of duct work. He should have some type of portable vacuum that he can bring into your home for cleaning, as well as the more powerful truck-mounted equipment for cleaning your ducts.

• Next, ask him about his company, and the technicians that will actually be coming to your home to complete the service. Have his technicians been background checked? Are they insured and bonded? What type of training and experience do they have? How long has the contractor’s company been in business? Does he guarantee the work?

• Of course, you will want to ask about the price. Prices can vary in an area, but many will offer discounts at certain times of the year. If his quote seems too low to be true, it may be. Use caution and get the price in writing. You want to pay for a quality, reputable company.

Some companies that offer an extremely low price are simply a ‘bait and switch’ scheme. They will continue to add products and services that you don’t need to jack up the price.
