Get Out

Yesterday I had to put somebody out of my house. I had EnvirocAir scheduled to come clean my air ducts and carpets. They had a coupon special that I to do both of those things for $64. When the guy got to the house he smelled like he had just eaten cigarettes. Seriously, if you work in a service industry and have to enter into homes for a living, air yourself out if you smoke. It's just rude to bring that stank into my home. Anyway, I handed him the coupon and showed him which rooms I wanted cleaned. He looked and determined  that 2 of the rooms needed a deep clean for an additional $29.99 for each room. Dude please. I told him the basic clean would be sufficient. He said he didn't want to do a half job. Sir, I'm not paying for that. He then asked to see the furnace and asked when we last had the ducts cleaned. Since we just moved in, I didn't know. After looking at the furnace he said it was dirty and if they didn't clean the furnace too we'd be wasting our money because the ducts would just get dirty again. He said to clean the furnace it would be an additional $199. Dude, I am not paying you that. I will pay the $64 I intended on spending and that's good enough. He kept saying he didn't want to do a half job.  How you going to do me a favor with my money? He asked how much I wanted to pay. I told him $64. He said he would call his boss. Of course his boss didn't answer the phone so he offered to do everything for $199. Maybe you didn't understand me. I said I would pay $64. If you're not going to do it, you can take your equipment and leave. He left and threw the coupon down in my front yard. For real? EnvirocAir, that's a nice hustle you're running, but I am not the one.

That is terrible service! First with the smellyness and then with the hustle hustle. I would call and complain to them and then I would tell others in your area not to use them.

I know your next blog post will be about contacting the company and the BBB.

I wonder how many people have fallen for the hustle.
