Duct Cleaning Scams!

When DO you know it's Vacu-Man?


Air Duct Cleaning Scams come from India and Pakistan. These companies have given the duct cleaning services a bad name in the past. In fact, these countries have been charged from the CRTC due to violating the DO NOT CALL list. However, they are getting smarter and it’s important to understand WHO you’re really doing business with.

The most recent scam is that these fake duct cleaning companies are calling from Pakistan directly and linking through Facebook “Buy and Sell Groups”. The air duct cleaning scam company post a legitimate ad using Vacu-Man name and offer a deal of $110. The post is then removed and the person at the call centre in India/Pakistan is now in contact selling the duct cleaning services. These companies impersonating Vacu-Man are based out of Brampton, Ontario or Ajax Ontario.

They typically target homes in Oakville, Burlington and Mississauga Ontario.


These guys arrive in vans/trucks unmarked, no logo, no phone number and no uniform. The most recent was CA Ducts, Devine Duct Cleaning, Toronto Breeze Duct Cleaning Services.

Adam Oldfield, President of Vacu-Man decided…enough is enough. He set out with his wife, Michelle Oldfield to go to homes of people that THOUGHT they were hiring air duct cleaning from Vacu-Man but were deceived. This has resulted in many homes getting scammed by air duct cleaning calls and further giving access to strangers to their home and they ONLY deal with cash.


When you hire an India or Pakistan air duct cleaning company you will not be protected by insurance and you could be putting yourself in danger. You are letting these strangers into your home and should there be a problem you are not covered at all.

Vacu-Man will be continuing our posts of what we find on these air duct cleaning scams. We are not letting up on this scandal of air duct cleaning fake operations and further damaging and possibly stealing YOUR information.
