I’ve been told pretty much my entire career as a landlord that this is pretty much a scam. My contractor partner agrees.
We’re clearing an apt. where the tenant was a hoarder and a mess. Not a dirty filthy hoarder, just tons of crap. About 5000 books in disrepair and it seems she kept the empty box from everything she bought in her life. And she bought a lot.
Taking it down to the studs basically, for a lot of reasons. Took the HVAC registers off and OMG. Now, when I bought the house, she was in there. And apparently no one had ever told her to change her HVAC filter. In fact, due to her disability, I’ve been changing the filters the last 10 years. Helped me keep an eye on her mess.
These ducts are AWFUL. I called my regular HVAC guy and they don’t do it, and they don’t do recommendations. Yeah, this industry is full of BS. So I’ve researched air duct cleaning companies and found one that seems to be reputable. They come out Monday. Blah blah blah about their wonderful service from guy on the phone. I pointed out to him that he will be meeting my partner who is not gonna be sold on horseshit.
What can I expect? They quoted what seems to be a ridiculously low price for this approx. 1000 sq. ft. unit.
