3 Things to Look for in Your Duct Cleaning Service

The ducts in your AC system move cool air from your air condition system into the various rooms and hallways of your house.  Over time, a certain amount of dust will build up in your ducts, spreading throughout your home to lower the quality of air, and even clogging the ducts themselves in the worst cases. Here in Portland, OR, you can find plenty of companies that will clean the ducts for you. But before you pick up the phone, make sure you have the right team for the job. Here are 3 things to look for in your duct cleaning services:


New companies aren’t necessarily a bad call, but they don’t have the reliability that more established ones do. A company with at least 10 or 15 years of service behind it can stand behind its work. You should also look for good reviews on online websites and especially good reviews on the company’s website itself.

Proper Equipment

Bad companies will use poorly-maintained equipment and won’t operate it with any especial care. A reliable company, on the other hand, always keeps its tools well maintained and puts pride in the equipment it uses. In particular, look for updated equipment using the latest technology. That’s the sign of a company that cares about its work.


Sometimes, it’s the little things that matter most. Does your service technician answer the phone in a friendly, competent manner? Is her or she happy to answer your questions, and does he or she answer them accurately? If a company just wants to score a cheap profit from you, they won’t behave like they want your business. A company that treats you with courtesy and respect will likely approaching the duct cleaning with the same level of professionalism.
