Mold Inspection Scams
You see a great coupon offer. You call, the company confirms the offer and you schedule a visit.
But once in your house, they will “inspect” for mold, and they always find it. Now the job will cost hundreds or thousands more because of it!
They had no intention of actually cleaning any air ducts for that low price because they wouldn’t survive as a company on those fees.
So they always find mold, even if you don’t have any, so they can increase the price. They will even bring it with them or use fake tests to convince you. They might even try to scare you by telling you that it is not safe to be in your home until this is taken care of.
What can you do to avoid getting scammed?
The two most important factors in choosing a company are making sure they are NADCA Certified to clean air ducts and are using powerful vacuum trucks. Power vacuum trucks will have bags that will pop out of the roof of the truck when the vacuum is turned on. These are the most powerful vacuums available for air duct cleaning.

Real air duct cleaning is not as cheap as you may see in some coupon offers. The reputable companies sound more expensive at first, but they are charging an honest price for honest work.
Those cheap coupons can result in expensive visits that don’t yield satisfactory results. That’s why it’s always worthwhile to do your homework and check reviews when hiring an air duct cleaning professional.
