Why do duct cleaning prices differ so much?
This is one of those questions that cannot be answered definitively, but I shall do my best.
Many customers wonder why Duct cleaning company A charges $200.00 for their service,
while Duct cleaning company B is charging $600.00 for the same service.
From my many years of experience I have found that most companies such as company A, that charge a very low price, will typically try to up sell extra services once they are in your home or they will simply do a very poor job in a short period of time, these extra services may include things like
- Creating extra access holes
- Cleaning the furnace conveyance compartment
- Inspecting the humidifier
- Applying a system sanitizer
- Doing a carbon monoxide test
and the list goes on....
Companies such as Company B that charge a hefty price, are often companies that are subcontracting their services out, in other words you may think that you are hiring that "Big Department Store Chain" when in actual fact they are subcontracting their work out to other duct cleaning companies.
Companies that operate in this fashion are typically more expensive because there are several people sharing a piece of the same pie.
Other reasons may simply be that the company has a large overhead with several employees, therefore they must inflate their prices to cover their expenses.
The fact that we are an independently owned and operated company means that we have a low overhead and can in turn pass that savings along to our customers.
We believe in offering a full comprehensive service combined with quality workmanship at a fair price!
