Hi Tech Duct Cleaning was featured on Dateline NBC with Chris Hansen. The show exposed scam duct cleaners and showed the shoddy work they were doing in residential homes. Hi Tech Duct Cleaning was recommended by the National Air Duct Cleaner's Association (NADCA) to NBC to come in behind the scammers and clean the duct work correctly. The following is a letter from NADCA concerning the NBC special.
"We've all seen the coupons and advertisements promoting 'whole-house air duct cleaning' for $49.95, and heard the horror stories from consumers who got taken by these companies. Now the national media is taking notice.
NADCA worked with Dateline NBC over the past six months to expose a scam operation and the company's unethical business practices. Tune in to NBC this Sunday, January 30 at 7pm (Eastern Standard Time) when Dateline will present the Hansen Files, a new series that features Chris Hansen as he exposes frauds and helps educate the general public about the HVAC cleaning industry.
NADCA president Buck Sheppard served as the industry expert and may be featured in this report. This episode will show hidden camera scenes uncovering instances of brazen scam artists preying on uninformed customers.
Special thanks go to NADCA member Steve Wladysh of Hi Tech Duct Cleaning, Inc., out of Hamilton, Ohio, who contributed to this project by having his team come in to do a proper system cleaning, taking care of the mess left behind by the scammers. "
