When we first moved into our house, we decided that we were going to thoroughly clean every single thing before we started living here.
- We wanted to make sure that there was no chance of us getting any sort of bug or rodent infestation, and we also wanted to make sure that the indoor air quality was going to be the best possible.
We are both very susceptible to allergies and dust and things like that, so we have to be very careful when it comes to our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. It’s just one of those things that we have to be diligent with. When we went to start cleaning out all of the air ducts in the house before we moved in, that’s when we realized that this is really a job that’s more geared toward an HVAC professional. It takes a lot of special equipment, which of course we don’t even really have. By the time we had used our regular shop vac on three or four of the air vents in the house, we were done with trying it ourselves. We had found a stuffed bear, a bunch of change, some gross looking hairballs, and a stack of one dollar bills in the air vents that we vacuumed. That’s when we looked at each other and decided to call our local HVAC company to have them send someone out to finish all of the air ducts cleaning for us. We wanted to have them give us an estimate on installing a whole home air purification system for us anyway.
