    @edgebee:  There’s a ton of scams going around in Ontario about this.  If you’re looking into the company though and you’re making the first contact it shouldn’t be a problem.  I don’t know if it’s always neccessary but I plan on getting it done if we buy a resale that had dogs in it before.

    @edgebee:  DH is in HVAC, and he says this is completely unnecessary and a way to rope people in because they have this idea that their ducts must be dirty. In reality, he says ducts are built to withstand far more than the normal amount of dirt and debris that a house will accumulate, and unless the ductwork is more than 60 or 70 years old, you’re fine. 🙂

    @edgebee: Hmmm, let me talk to him about this tonight, and I’ll PM you with what he says. More than likely the guys you’re using are definitely trying to upsell you, DH says that’s very very common.

    I’m not really sure if it’s needed or not but one of the buildings that we are responsible for maintaining had people getting sick and they thought that there might be Legionaries disease in the duct work!

    I have allergies and this has helped me tremendously! It’s especially good if you have pets.
