After purchasing a home, you will be busy moving and settling in. One of the last things you may be thinking about is the duct work in the home. Though, after moving in, you may want to consider having your air ducts cleaned. Here are a few of the benefits associated with having your air ducts cleaned when moving into a new place:
● You Can Have Your Ducts Inspected
If you choose to have your air ducts cleaned, they will also be inspected by our duct-cleaning crew. Air ducts are made of thin pieces of metal that can get holes, rips, or tears due to a number of reasons. These rips or tears allow air to leak out. Having your ducts inspected helps to find any of these problems and get them repaired quickly.
● You Can Remove Scents From the Past Owners
Duct cleaning can remove scents that the past owners may have left behind. If the past owners smoked in the home or had pets, you may be able to smell these lingering odors in the home. Deep cleaning, professionally steaming the carpets, and opening the windows to air the home out may not fully get rid of the smell, as they can be trapped in dust and dander that is lingering in the air duct system. Having your ducts cleaned removes this dust and dander and can fully eliminate the scent.
● You Can Increase the Efficiency of Your Heating and Cooling Units
When you move into a new home, odds are, you do not know when the last time the ducts were cleaned. If it has been some time, the heating and cooling system may be using more energy than it should. Having the ducts cleaned helps to remove dirt, dander and hair that can slow the flow of air through the ducts, resulting in energy loss. Removing this debris helps air to flow through the ducts, increasing the energy of your heating and cooling units.
