Five Questions You Should Ask Your Air Duct Technician

February 7, 2017

It’s a good idea to have your home’s air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or if you notice that your air ducts appear to contain a large amount of dirt and debris. Cleaning your air ducts and optimizing the performance of your home’s air system has many important benefits, but only if you work with knowledgeable and professional Guelph, Cambridge, Waterloo, and Kitchener air duct cleaning technicians.

In order to make sure you’re getting a high level of service, here are five questions to ask your air duct technician:

1) Do you have the qualifications to perform my air duct cleaning?
The company who you choose to hire for an air duct cleaning should be sending technicians who are trained and qualified for the job. Your technician, or technicians, should have no trouble telling you about their training and qualifications.

2) Will you need access to all of my registers and vents?
If your air duct technician does not express an interest in accessing all of your vents and registers, then this is likely a red flag. Properly trained technicians will want to have access to all of your registers and vents and will ask that you make sure they are all accessible ahead of time.

3) What sort of equipment do you use?
Qualified air duct cleaning technicians will use specialized equipment to make sure that your ducts are properly cleaned. Technicians who are ready to do the job right will have powerful truck mounts and will be using a tool known as an agitator whip.

4) What is your cleaning process like?
If you ask your technician this question and they respond that they are pretty much just going to be vacuuming the heat registers without the use of any of the specialized tools mentioned above, then you are going to want to look elsewhere. If they don’t seem to want to explain the cleaning process to you at all, then that can also be a concern.

5) How long have you been in the business?
Choosing to work with an established company can help you avoid fly-by-night operations that are looking to make the quickest, easiest buck for poor quality work. If a business has been around for a while and if your friends and family can recommend it, then you’ve made a good choice.
