Local ads offering a low price on air duct cleaning might
seem like a great deal with minimal risk. Though most companies are on the
straight and narrow, Better Business Bureau warns consumers to beware of air
duct cleaning businesses that
employ bait-and-switch tactics or try to scare homeowners
into thinking they have a serious, health-threatening mold problem.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a
careless or inadequately trained service provider can damage your house's ducts
or heating and cooling system, possibly increasing your heating and
air-conditioning costs or forcing you to undertake difficult and costly repairs
or replacements. From The Augusta Chronicle.
