don’t fall for Facebook Air Duct Cleaning Scams!

It’s no secret that the past few years have been difficult, with a pandemic affecting each of us in ways we never imagined, and if you’re like most people, there are many things you’d like to put behind you.
Most of us spend time thinking about the previous year and making objectives for the next year at the start of each new year. Everyone’s New Year’s goals are different, but it seems that being healthy and saving money is on almost everyone’s list!
These days, there’s a lot of debate about indoor air quality, and more and more people are looking into HVAC system cleaning solutions. After all, air duct cleaning may increase your home’s energy efficiency and save you money in addition to helping you and your family breathe clean, healthy air
COVID-19 has added gasoline to the fire when it comes to home renovation scams as if there wasn’t enough to worry about with a pandemic still raging. Scams involving duct cleaning are nothing new (we’ve all seen those fliers in the mail offering air duct cleaning offers that sound too good to be true, such as $89 whole-house promotions). (Hint: if anything looks too good to be true, it usually is! ), but postings on social media neighborhood groups aimed at homeowners are on the increase. Indeed, it seems that we see many postings advertising dirt-cheap air duct cleaning on different social networking platforms every day, with Facebook and Nextdoor users being the worst offenders.
The text of these articles is almost similar, and often includes offers such as a “special discount” for the first few individuals who comment, or a single fee for endless vents and ducts. If you look carefully, you’ll discover that postings with seemingly unrelated topics often employ the same photos and videos. The name of the firm is virtually never included in the article, and individuals who express interest get private messages through the app. They’re also often uploaded using accounts that are designed to seem to be actual citizens of the communities for which the groups were created.
Scams have become more complex over time, and postings may now look to be genuine. When homeowners express interest, the more adept fraudsters will send them direct messages and ultimately collect personal information before demanding a large payment. Your money is therefore lost, and your ducts are never cleaned. Or, if they are cleaned, the results are subpar.
When it comes to determining whether or not postings are a scam, according to our pals at DuctCleaning.org, there are a few strategies that stand out. The following are eight red flags to watch out for:
“Believe my work, not my words,” the message states. “This isn’t a ruse.” If they have to declare it isn’t a Scam, it probably is.
The post does not contain the name of the Business. Since legitimate businesses seeking to promote their services to the general public, they will always utilize their name.

The Luxe Ducts Promise

What to expect when you hire us.

After initial contact, we will immediately enter your contact information into our state of the art customer database. Our customer database will send four notifications. The first confirms our appointment, the second is when we are on our way with our estimated arrival time, the third is when the process begins and the last is once we have completed the process. This is when an automatic invoice will be generated. After that, you will receive your immediate confirmation of payment received. 

We ask that any furniture or obstruction in front of the registers or vents are removed so that we may have access. We are a pet friendly company but will be leaving and re-entering your home, so we ask that you secure them. The entire process beginning to end is approximately 4 to 5 hours.

Two technicians wearing a Luxe Ducts uniform, who will be driving a company marked vehicle, will arrive at your home. Upon entering your home they will wear pink booties. We kindly ask that you show us where all the furnace and/or dryer vents are located.

Our team will then prepare your home for the process which means putting masking tape over vents and registers, laying down protective floor runners, as well as corner guards to protect the corners of your walls. 

Luxe Ducts goes to each individual vent, return and trunk lines. We use a high powered speed whip and use high powered gas vacuums to ensure your ducts are perfectly cleaned every time, guaranteed. 

(If this service is added) After the ventilation system is clean, we will fog anti-bacterial sanitizer throughout the entire system to eliminate any minor molding, bacteria and viruses in your ductwork. Once completed we will turn your newly sanitized home back to you.  

We appreciate the feedback! Please leave us a “luxe-urious” review on Better Business Bureau, Google or Yelp.
