We’ve talked about this before. We even have a page of our website dedicated to this topic. Coupon Companies. Blow and Go. The picket signs at intersections. Call them what you want – you know what I’m talking about.
These companies, regardless of how legit they seem, are only focused on charging you as much as they possibly can because you will never, ever be calling them again.
It works like this: you see a coupon for air duct cleaning that offers $49.99 or $59.99 or even $99 for a full house air duct cleaning. You’ve been thinking about getting your air ducts cleaned for a while and this sounds like a deal so now is the perfect time. You call, schedule and the crew shows up. Either right from the start or very shortly into the job, they stop to show you something that will result in what was previously “a great deal” now costing you close to $1000 or more. I can’t tell you exactly what story they will give, though we’ve heard hundreds of examples from people who have been burned by coupon companies over the years.
But let’s just look at this from two angles.
I don’t want to say that this is common sense because when we call a service company, we typically know very little about the service and trust that the individuals are going to be honest. However, I will say that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is (like your momma always said).
Dapper Ducts provides straightforward pricing. We are not going to be the cheapest option but you are going to know, down to the dollar, exactly how much you can expect to pay before we even show up. If you are tempted to go with a less expensive company, please do your homework. Make sure they are NADCA (national air duct cleaners association) certified. Read their online reviews. Get pricing up front, in writing.
And if you still find yourself having an experience like what I described above, you can always say No. Stop the job and say that you want a second opinion. Ask them to leave. You work hard for your money and shouldn’t throw it away. I can’t tell you all the homes we’ve been to after a scamming company was there. Not only did the customer pay an exorbitant fee, but then they didn’t even get a proper air duct cleaning.
