We highly recommend to the consumers to consider the following points listed below before you hire duct cleaning company;
- Never book a duct cleaner who is calling you. Good duct cleaning companies will never use any telemarketing for sales.
- Instead check online and compare quotes from different companies before hiring.
- Call your references (friends, neighbor or relatives) to select a duct cleaner.
- Virtual world is informative and transparent. You can find the location of the company it is serving from. Their online presence, customers reviews etc.
- Scammer duct cleaners will never show their physical address.
- Find out if they are certified.
- NADCA is the association that provides the certification for duct cleaning in North America.

- What ever you discuss, tell them to give them in writing, via email etc.
