Great service, would recommend!
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- We've received several coupons through our local mailer for Indy Air Care's special $39.95 air duct cleaning. We decided to bite the bullet on May 17th, 2011, and call them up. The coupon included one main, one return, and unlimited vents. The coupon also clearly states that additional returns and mains will cost.
The dispatcher told me they'd arrive between 2-5pm on the given day. They arrived just before 4pm, and called me to let me know they'd arrive in about 40 minutes before they got here.
The technician was also training someone, and both of them were very good. He showed me several issues with dusk in the system, pointed out other issues, etc. I would expect any contractor to point out issues and additionally to offer other services. They wheeled in a HUGE negative air machine. They taped up the vents to create an air tight seal, and sucked the dust out. They also went around, blowing off some of the dusk around vents but told me that some soap and water would take care of the built up. They also said it's possible some of the dusk/dirt would show on the baseboards, so I'd probably need to clean those off. Again, very informative.
Of course, as with any company, they recommend other services. He wrote up a quote that included servicing my AC and some other things, and a sanitizing of my system. I told him that we only wanted to do the cleaning, but we at least had some pricing for the other services. For the sanitizing, he cut us a deal: basically half off. This is the kind of chemical they use in hospitals, and it coats the system to prevent bacteria from building up for 6-8 months. I appreciated that they gave us a deal, and the service was something beneficial.
Overall, I was very satisfied. I didn't feel at any time they were trying to scare me or pressure me into getting stuff I didn't want. Did they recommend? Absolutely. That's part of business. They did a great job, were friendly and knowledgeable. I asked questions, they had answers. I'm not sure why others have had such poor experiences, but I'd recommend Indy Air Care for vent/duct cleaning! Props to Darcy for doing a great job.
