If a company has taken the time to get any or all of the certifications above, that company has demonstrated a commitment to meeting industry standards and is probably a cut above competitors not certified by the NADCA.
Insist on Experience
Air duct cleaning companies rely heavily on word of mouth for new and returning customers. So, it stands to reason that a company that’s been in business for several years has done work that customers recommend. Look for companies that have been working in your community for 10 or more years. And, feel free to ask for references when you call.
Check Angie’s List for Reviews
Angie’s List ( www.angieslist.com ) is an independent source for reviews from homeowners in your community. If you want to hear what customers are really saying about the company that cleaned their ducts, you’ll get an unfiltered idea here.
Ask About the Process, Equipment, and Insurance
Don’t hesitate to ask questions about the cleaning process and equipment. A reputable company will have experienced professionals who can answer these questions and more.
In general, duct cleaning begins with an inspection, possibly including a test of your indoor air, to get an overall idea of how the air ducts may be affecting air quality. If the professional finds a problem, he can clean your vents and ducts with special brushes, a large vacumming system (truck mount or a gas power portable unit), and other dirt-loosening equipment.
