So you’ve moved into a new house, and you’re looking forward to unpacking your belongings, placing all the furniture, and decorating the place to make it feel like home. But before you start marking the territory as your own, you may want to seize the opportunity to do some carpet and duct cleaning. Not only will cleaning your duct and carpet before you move in make the cleaning projects easier, but they will ensure you have a fresh start (no pun intended) to life in your new home.

Air duct cleaning for better health

Chances are your new home had some work done to it before it went on the market. Renovation work often helps homes sell faster, and while you may be the beneficiary of a remodeled bathroom, kitchen or other room, there could be remnants of that renovation work sitting in your ventilation system and ducts.

Home renovations create loads of dirt and debris that can wind up in your ventilation system. In addition, when the previous homeowners moved out, all that shuffling of furniture and housewares may have created even more dust and dirt.

That dirt and dust can cause a number of maladies, such as coughing, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and other respiratory problems. If someone in your household has a respiratory ailment, it’s worthwhile to have your ducts cleaned before you move in.

Air duct cleaning for energy efficiency

An added benefit of having your ducts cleaned before you move in is that you’ll be helping make your place more energy efficient for when you actually start running your heating and cooling systems. A thorough air duct cleaning can bring about long-term energy savings. Researchers for the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers have noted that dirty coils and blowers in buildings can cut efficiency by as much as 40 percent.

When your ducts are dirty, your heating and cooling systems have to work harder to maintain the desired temperature inside your home. Cleaning your ducts could help you enjoy energy consumption savings from the moment you move in.

Cleaning your new carpeting

Ahead of moving into your new house, you could also benefit from scheduling a professional carpet cleaning. When your new home is still empty, carpet cleaners will have easy access to all carpeted areas. You won’t have to shuffle around your furniture or move items from one room to another before the cleaners arrive. Having an empty space also gives the cleaners a chance to get into all corners and crevices that may have been blocked or covered up by your furniture.

Cleaning your carpets before your move will help eliminate any trapped pollutants that may have fallen into your carpet as a result of the previous homeowner’s move, or as a result of any renovation work that was done before your new house went up for sale.
