As we move further into 2024, the prevalence of duct cleaning scams in Facebook community groups remains a significant concern. These deceptive practices not only mislead homeowners but can also lead to substandard services and potential hazards. Understanding the red flags and knowing the right questions to ask is crucial in safeguarding your home against such scams.


The Red Flags of Facebook Scam Posts:


  1. Suspiciously Low Prices: Offers that seem too good to be true often are. As detailed in our Duct Cleaning Cost Comparison guide, understanding the average market prices can help you identify unrealistic offers.
  2. Lack of Detailed Information: Scammers typically provide limited information about their services. Our Understanding the Duct Cleaning Process page explains what legitimate service descriptions should include.
  3. Absence of Certifications: Professional duct cleaners often have certifications from reputable organizations. As highlighted in our Choosing a Duct Cleaning Service guide, asking for such credentials is key.
  4. Pressure Tactics: Scammers tend to pressure homeowners into making quick decisions. Our Consumer Rights and Protection Guide offers advice on how to handle such situations.
