Clean Air Ducts are a Plus

How often would you have the air ducts in your home professionally cleaned to rid them of accumulated dirt, debris, dust, lost Legos or playing cards? Most people will probably tell you that they have never had the air ducts cleaned, but not the owners of 18148.

If your home hasn't had the air ducts cleaned in the last 5 to 7 years, it's about time they were.

If your home hasn't had the air ducts cleaned in the last 5 to 7 years, it's about time they were cleaned. Our featured home has them cleaned at least every 2 years.

The current owners of this featured home had the ducts professionally cleaned about every 18 to 22 months — at least 3 times in 6 years. Although that is more frequent than industry standards, which recommend a cleaning every 5 to 7 years, the buyers of this home for sale can simply rest assured that tons of dust will not be blowing out of the ducts when they turn the air conditioner on, and the ducts look as good as new!

If you’re buying a home ask the seller if they’ve had the air ducts cleaned in the last 7 years. If the answer is no, be sure to have them done yourself shortly after you move in. A good professional vacuuming of your vents and ducts shouldn’t cost more than $200. Anything twice that or more is probably a scam.
