I just bought a brand new home. Should I get the ducts cleaned?

Building a new home is a very messy business. There’s a lot of dust, construction debris, and garbage such as coffee cups scattered around the typical job site. All of those uncovered heat register openings in the floors make for very convenient garbage chutes.

After a new home is built, a quick peek into the heating ducts will likely reveal a lot of dirt and dust, lunch bags, coffee cups, and of course, scraps of drywall, plywood, and bits of 2 x 4. The first time the furnace or a/c comes on after a new home is built, a lot of stuff that you don’t really want floating around in the air inside your home is probably going to come wafting out of the registers. That’s why if you only have your ducts cleaned once, it should be after you buy a new home that’s never been lived in. If you have a major renovation done on your home, it’s also a good idea to have the ducts cleaned afterwards.

Having your ducts cleaned before the a/c or furnace is used will prevent a lot of dust from being pumped into the living areas in your home. This is particularly important if you have a family member who suffers from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems. A good cleaning can also remove construction debris that could create blockages in your duct work, resulting in cold or warm areas in your home, depending on the season.

A certified duct cleaning company will inspect all of the nooks and crannies in your ducts and will use a powerful vacuum to remove dirt, dust, garbage and blockages so clean air can flow to every part of your house.

If you’ve moving into a new home, or you just completed a big renovation on your existing home, now is a great time to get the ducts inspected and cleaned. Call Kettle Valley Duct Cleaners today!
