Should We Get Our Ducts Cleaned Before or After We Move Into Our New House?
Congratulations on your new purchase. Purchasing a new home can be overwhelming at times, but is a major accomplishment in life. If your new or used home has a furnace with ductwork attached, we recommend that the ductwork gets cleaned first before you move in.
To help your family’s health, an air duct cleaning is the most important cleaning for your home. Airborne allergens and pollutants enter into your home, creating dirty air. This dirty air is then cycled through your HVAC system catching other dust and debris and spreading it everywhere. At home you should always have “peace of mind” and this includes the air that you breathe. You clean your counter tops on a regular basis, why shouldn’t you clean your duct system too?
If you have purchased a new home, then having your ducts cleaned should be number 1 on your list. Builders have hired contractors on site to do anything from carpentry to painting. Unfortunately, none of these contractors have a care on what they throw down your duct system. To them it is out of site, out of mind. Then it becomes your problem. In new homes it is common for us to find nails, screws, drywall, urine, pop cans, pizza boxes, cigarette packages and so on. These items will block the flow of air from moving in the most efficient way and it will also make the whole system work harder, thereby costing you more money to pay for the extra energy that is used.
If you have purchased a used home, we also recommend that the ducts be cleaned. You don’t know how the previous owners used to live. Where they clean people? Did they look after there responsibilities? Did they have pets? Did they smoke? Did they clean their ducts in prior years?
We at City Duct Cleaning recommend that every three years you should have your ducts cleaned. Within a 3 year time limit, it is estimated that you will collect around 7-10 pounds of dust and debris in your ducting system.Clean vents are healthy vents.
