What should you look for in an air duct cleaning company here in the Fargo-Moorhead area? Although there are many companies to choose from large and small, here are a few tips that can help you make the right decision.
Tip #1- Ask how the company cleans your air ducts and furnace. Cleaning air ducts involves simply removing dust and debris from the ducts of your heating and cooling system, along with the furnace itself. Some companies use pressurized air and a vacuum to suck up the dust, other companies use a high tech cable/brush system to “wipe” the dust out of your system with powerful vacuums that suck up the dust and debris.
Tip #2- Ask WHO will be doing the work. This is important. If the company you choose is extremely large, they might send a new or newly trained employee/tech out to your home to clean. This might be fine for some jobs, but sometimes these techs do not have the attention to detail needed to get your heating/cooling systems really clean. Other companies have the owner/operator and perhaps company partners doing the work, which usually results in much better end results.
Tip #3- Ask about a firm quote. Make sure you get a firm quote from the company before they do the work. Most companies in the Fargo-Moorhead area provide a free consultation for air duct cleaning, but be sure to ask when you call. Beware of companies advertising a very low price. Often, these are “bait and switch” offers that may end up costing you more than you expect because they will try to “upsell” you extra services that should probably already be included in the price. Some companies not only provide a free quote up front, but also give you a video camera inspection so you can see exactly what condition your air duct system is in.
Tip #4- Ask for references. This is good because any company that does a good job should have willing satisfied clients they can use as references. Beware of companies that do not readily give this information.
These four tips should arm you with the information and questions you need to ask when you call an air duct cleaning company in the Fargo-Moorhead area. This will help you find the right company and get the best service available.
