It is doing frequent burns due to doing short trips and clogging up. Go for a longer drive and save your money

For 30 bucks, you've got nothing to lose.

Some workshops have specialised equipment for DPF clean and regen - I don't know what they charge though.

There's another workshop option that doesn't just do the scan tool regen.
I believe the DPF is removed from the vehicle and treated in a special rig.
