We all know it’s very easy to find duct cleaning companies in the GTA. However, are all of them reliable and trust worthy?
Here are some tips on choosing a duct cleaning company:
1) Age is just a number
A lot of the duct cleaning companies boast that they have been around for many years. Whether or not it is true – what matters the most is if whether or not they can do a good job? They can be open for just 2 years, but they can be better then companies that have been around for 10 years.
Solution – Seek Education
Ask if their staff members have formal education in anything related to the HVAC industry. Not every member in their staff needs to have it, just as long as one of them does have it – then there definitely more reliable.
2) You get what you pay for
Be careful with duct cleaning companies that put their price below $80.00.
Remember they have to pay for fuel, equipment, as well as the staff performing the duties. A thorough job on average should take a minimum* 45 minutes – 60 minutes.
Solution – Ask Questions
Find out how long their typical job is. Ask them for a walk through on what they will do. Once you’ve done that call another company and find out what they do.
3) Reliable and Guarantee
Very few duct cleaning companies are reliable and offer guarantees. When choosing one, be sure to ask if they have liability insurance, as well as for any other guarantees they may offer.
Solution – What happens if I am not satisfied?
Find out if the company has a satisfaction guarantee. In other words, if you are unhappy with their job, will they redo the cleaning? Having such a guarantee would show their customers that they really care about their job.
