Recently I decided to have my Ducts/Vents cleaned because occasionally I would see a little dust on the floor. I then call several Duct Cleaning Companies and settled on one that was (I thought) reasonably priced. I soon learned that I got what I paid for not what I was promised. Once the Serviceman had completed his “work”, which took all of 1 hour and about 15 minutes, he left.
In the days that followed as I started using the heating system in my home I noticed dust everywhere. Which I attribute to the recent cleaning and thought, maybe some dust was left over. As days turned into weeks I realized I was dusting more than I’d ever had to in all the years I been here, each time I removed the blanket of dust that spewed from the vents, a couple of days later it was back. After several weeks I could no longer make excuses for the “job” that was done/not done.
I then call Four Seasons which cost a little bit more but as I stated before, I got what I paid for. After Four Seasons serviced my Ducts/Vents I waited; I had become accustomed to removing dust from my furniture, blinds, floors, etc. every two to three days, but there was no more dust. The money I wasted on the first Duct Cleaning Company could have went to Four Seasons who in the end came out and did the job right. If this helps anyone save some of their hard earned money in these difficult economic times I’m happy. From now on my philosophy is “do it right the first time.”
