When Is The Best Time To Clean Your Ducts in Atlanta?
Moving into a brand new home is exciting. You’ve designed it. You’ve chosen the cabinets, the carpeting, the colors. You’re the first person stepping through the doors and calling it home. From the moment you open the door, everything is sparkling and clean.
Or is it?
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, the HVAC system of a newly constructed house may be anything but sparkling clean. HVAC systems in new construction can have things like construction dust and drywall dust making its way into the cracks and corners of the duct system. And all of this can have an impact on the breathable air you’re going to live with every day.
Not moving into a new home, you say? Are you living in a home in Dunwoody or Roswell that’s been standing for years? Think you’re safe because your Atlanta home was constructed long ago?
When was the last time your ducts were cleaned?
Maybe your home was constructed a few short years ago. Have they ever been cleaned?
Or maybe your home is decades old; several families have rotated in and out over the years. Have you performed major remodeling projects to update the kitchen or bathrooms? There’s little difference between new construction and a major reconstruction project changing rooms in your home. Sure, the size of the project may be smaller, but the dust is still there.
In addition to construction projects, there are several common indications that it’s time to have your ducts cleaned.
- You can see dust blowing from the air supply registers
- You suspect biological growth may be impacting your home and ducts
- You notice signs of rodents, insects or other pests living in the ductwork
- Previous owners had pets
- Ducts have not been cleaned in 5 years
