Is Air Duct Cleaning Important In New Construction?
The construction process creates immense amounts of dirt, dust and debris in the air (most commonly termed “indoor air pollution”). When a home or commercial property is under construction, one of the first things installed is the HVAC system. After it is installed other contractors begin finishing their pieces of the construction project. We have found that when the system is installed, these contractors will come in and turn the system on. Warm summer days will provoke these contractors to run the AC to cool the home.
Unfortunately, some contractors are unaware that the air in the home is recycled back through the system on average of 9-12 times per day. Due to this, proper preventative maintenance must begin immediately after the HVAC system is installed. If preventative maintenance does not begin promptly, the construction dirt will contaminate the duct work.
For example, a sheetrock or painting contractor attempting to cure their materials quickly will most often contaminate the brand new duct work in the process. In our experience, we have also found issues with hardwood floor installation. Dust and floor registers almost always guarantee contaminates moving into the ducts.
DryServ Air Duct Cleaning has worked with many builders that hire us to clean the air ducts out in a home or commercial property after the construction is complete. These builders truly care about their customers and the air they are breathing. Sadly, this is the exception and not the rule. The moral of this story is that it is extremely important to utilize our services upon completion of your home or commercial building construction or even remodeling for that matter. Indoor air quality is important for everyone and especially for those who suffer from asthma, allergies or other health issues.
