Blow-and-Go” Air Duct Cleaning Company

When you are looking for an air duct cleaning company, there are many out there that will offer you a cut-rate in order to get your business. What you don’t realize until it’s too late, usually after they are done and gone, is that they will do a poor job of cleaning your HVAC system. They may also add other service fees for things that you might not have agreed to at the start of the job. They also likely only cleaned the air ducts and not the other aspects of the system.

This is where the nonprofit organization NADCA, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, comes into play. They offer an easy way on their website to find a list of members in your area.

While low prices might be attractive, what will likely happen is that the air duct cleaning company will start to add a bunch of additional fees for things like inspecting and cleaning your coils, air plenum, and more. All of these would instead be included in the fee from a NADCA member.
