I understand that maybe around $100–$200 USD would be an okay price for such a service, but 500? to clean a small loop? Why does it seem like Microcenter is going overboard with this price? I don't understand. It's basically the price of a brand new loop for my system.
It's that expensive because they don't really want to do it, they want to sell you a new loop instead.
Actually doing it would mean taking their tech's time up so they spend less time fixing issues for other customers.
It's just a way to advertise a service without actually having to do the service.
Just research how to do it online and clean it yourself. If they can do it then so can you!*
(*unless they have a machine that costs way too much for a reasonable person to buy that does it automatically, but I very much doubt this.)
