Moving in to a new home and why you should get a Duct Cleaning

Did you just move into your home or Are you about to move into a home?

When we move into homes, it is very difficult to know how diligent the previous homeowner was about the general maintenance and upkeep of their home. If your new home operates using a duct system, then it is time to think about getting your ducts cleaned.
Taking proactive step to clean your ducts is something you can do to ensure that you have a healthy new home. This will prevent your family from suffering from health issues due to your indoor air quality; remember, as soon as you turn on your furnace or air conditioner, the air will push through the ducts, bringing all of the contaminants lining the ducts with it. Prevent years of built up dirt, debris, pet dander, fur, and other contaminants from flowing into your air, have your ducts cleaned today!

There is no evidence to suggest that clean ducts leads to better overall health. However, it should be noted that some homeowners report feeling less congested or stuffy. Other individuals have also stated that their homes smelled better and there was visibly less dust within the household. Regular maintenance will help elongate the life of the system as service providers can make repairs to leaks and catch any mold growth early on. It might also be a good idea to check for excessive moisture as this can lead to other air system problems.
