OK - no rotating brushes were employed - they merely stuck a shop-vac type hose in the vents they cleaned. No all natural products were used, and they did not clean the vents/ducts on the first floor claiming that they were the same vents as those on the second floor. The manager to whom I talked game me a 20-minute runaround about why. All I wanted was for him to have his people come out and complete the job.
The cleaning tech looked into my HVAC system and told me I needed additional services and tried to sell them to me. They left shortly after I declined the offer.
I originally bought the service because I wanted the vents in my daughter's room cleaned as she has asthma. She lives on the first floor of the house, but the vents in her area were the only ones that were not cleaned.
For the record, when I asked him if he had other complaints, he would not answer. I suspect there are others who have had issues with the ads this company puts out.
