The National Air Duct Cleaners Association launches a consumer campaign to protect homeowners from scams

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J (PRWEB) August 10, 2017

The Federal Trade Commission estimates that Americans lost more than $4 billion to fraud and scams during the last five years. To combat scammers and fraudulent companies taking advantage of unsuspecting homeowners within the growing air duct cleaning industry, NADCA developed an anti-fraud task force, which established the Breathing Clean initiative.

The goals of the Breathing Clean campaign are to:

Educate homeowners about the benefits of air duct cleaning and the importance of hiring a NADCA member company to perform the services.

Be a resource to homeowners, providing helpful information including tips for hiring a reputable air duct cleaning company and easy-to-understand instructions for making sure the job is done right.

Provide NADCA members with tools that will help with communicating to current and potential customers.

"Cheaper isn't always better and if deals seem too good to be true, they probably are," said Mark Zarzeczny, Certified Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) and Chair of NADCA's Anti-Fraud Task Force. "NADCA members follow a higher standard and when done correctly, HVAC cleaning can be very beneficial."

As the leading authority in the field, NADCA developed a standardthe ACRfor the assessment, cleaning and restoration of HVAC systems, consisting of practical, industry-backed information for guiding the cleaning and restoration of HVAC systems to a specific level of cleanliness and evaluating and verifying the cleanliness of system components.

"By hiring a NADCA member to perform air duct cleaning and HVAC system cleaning services, you know you're hiring someone who pledges to follow the ACR and NADCA's Code of Ethics," added Zarzeczny.

To get started, NADCA encourages homeowners to visit to watch videos and browse resources such as the homeowner's guide for proper cleaning methods. You can also find a NADCA-certified professional near you at
