Feb. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Buffalo, NY – Air duct cleaning is only necessary on an as-needed basis, meaning there is no recommendation to do it regularly, such as once a year or every 2 – 3 years.  Air duct cleaning is needed if air ducts show signs of mold, vermin or pests or they are clogged with dust.

The National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association, NADCA ACR 2006, recommends an air duct inspection schedule for residential HVAC systems as follows:

•   Air handling unit – 1 year
•   Supply ductwork – 2 years
•   Return ductwork/exhaust – 2 years

Many companies who advertise air duct cleaning services use marketing campaigns to put fear into homeowners, like “do you know what your children are breathing?”  They imply that your family is at risk of unhealthy mold exposure if residents do not have regular air duct cleaning service performed.

Robert Garman owns DUCTZ, an air duct cleaning company that is licensed, insured and certified in HVAC system cleaning and a member of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.  According to Garman, only a professional with these qualifications should be trusted to give an accurate assessment based on a complete HVAC system inspection.

Robert Garman is upset over some of the air duct cleaning scams he has read about.  One resident received a flier in the mail and ordered a $55 air duct cleaning service.  After an inspection, the contractor told him his air ducts were contaminated with black mold and he should pay $499 for an ultraviolet light to be installed in his attic.  Feeling pressured, he agreed, but later regretted the decision, realizing the light was useless and unnecessary.

The Better Business Bureau has received many complaints from consumers who have been victims of these high-pressure sales tactics used by air duct cleaning companies.

Robert Garman and technicians with DUCTZ do not use health threats to scare residents into paying for air duct cleaning.  Garman encourages consumers to contact DUCTZ for a complete HVAC system inspection and an honest evaluation.  Multiple components of the HVAC system, including the ductwork, can trap contaminants and contribute to poor indoor air quality.  According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), if there is visible dust, dirt or debris within the ductwork, it is time to have HVAC system cleaned.

DUCTZ was ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as the number one air duct cleaning franchise nationwide.  The expertise of DUCTZ services reaches beyond simply cleaning air ducts to maximizing overall indoor air quality and providing for a cleaner living environment.  Visit to learn more.
