THE TRUTH ON $99 DUCT CLEANING

Duct Cleaning scams are everywhere.

You should be very careful about when choosing an air duct cleaning company.  When you’re making a purchase and you’re not sure what you’re getting it’s always a risk.

That’s why when you’re looking for a deal on Kijiji under duct cleaning and you see so many companies doing it for $99 or you get a flyer in the mail for $99 or that phone call from Pakistan giving you a special deal for $99. 

What is it you’re getting for $99 duct cleaning?

Somebody showing up at your house who hasn’t been educated by ontario legislation, isn’t bonded and possibly even has a criminal record coming into your home or business.   These $99 duct cleaners come and go under different names.    They even are trained by NAIDA or have an air duct cleaning certificate.   NAIDA is a not-for-profit association started by an air duct cleaning company many years ago.   All setup to claim they were trained … And again it’s not sanctioned by Ontario regulations.  

These $99 duct cleaning companies in Hamilton are not legally allowed to touch heating or cooling system, including your furnace or your air conditioner. 

The reason we can speak about this frankly, Vacu-Man went to court this past year suing a few of these $99 duct cleaning companies as they were even using the Vacu-Man name trying to solicit duct cleaning business. These companies were trained by NAIDA but falsely using Vacu-Man name.

Selling air duct cleaning services through Kijiji and Facebook.    It was settled out of court but a testament that legitimate furnace cleaning companies can be misrepresented as a company, like Vacu-Man,  throughout Ontario for duct cleaning.

These Scam air duct cleaning companies will upsell with  deodorizers, fogging services that is exactly smoke and mirrors.
