While its true you probably wont see much hair, rodents and things commonly found in dirty ductwork of older homes, a newly constructed home has its own variety of contaminants.
Think about it: the HVAC system is usually installed once the framing is complete. Contractors often run the system during the rest of the construction process. That means all that dust from the drywall cutting, taping, sanding, texture and paint gets sucked into the vents. Imagine the sawdust from cutting and sanding trim and cabinets and hardwood flooring!
All said and done, the new house is beautiful! But, the ductwork and furnace is FULL of dust, dirt, and construction debris. Many people call us a year or two after building a new home complaining about all the dust in their house! Thus they hire us to do what should have been done before they even moved in.
Post-construction cleaning is a natural final step of the construction process; sadly for many builders, duct cleaning is never even considered. Its out of sight, out of mind. So if you live in a new home ask yourself: “what’s hiding in my ducts?”
