Portable Air Duct Vacuums suck about as much as a Shop Vac.
If you have a shop vacuum and were thinking of hiring an Air Duct Cleaner that uses a Portable Vacuum system, then you should save yourself at least $400 and stir all that dirt and dust up yourself. If you do this, be sure to purchase dust masks for everyone living in the home or office. Why? Well, just like these fly-by-night companies, you won’t be cleaning anything with the shop vac, but you will save yourself some money. According to the EPA-Environmental Protection Agency, these substandard attempts at air duct cleaning jobs can release more dust, dirt and other contaminants into the air than simply leaving the dirty ducts alone. Think we’re kidding? Watch this independent news report that teaches you how to avoid being scammed by shady air duct cleaners.

Typical Portable Duct Cleaning Vacuum Systems Most Often Used by Air Duct Cleaning Scammers
Now, there’s a sneaky thing that these Air Duct Scammers like to do. They’ll take their portable vacuum, and they will mount it to their van or pickup truck, and now try to tell you that they have a duct cleaning vacuum truck for cleaning dirty air ducts and vents. They don’t. That’s like putting a refrigerator in a mini-van and calling it a mobile home, or installing flashing lights and sirens on your vehicle and saying you’re now in law enforcement. If you hire an air duct cleaning company, and they pull up in a vehicle that looks like one of the ones below, lock your doors, call the police and the better business bureau.
