Clean Homes Sell Faster

11/16/2017 (Permalink)

Real Estate professionals agree a  clean, fresh smelling home will be shown more and will sell faster. Outside curb appeal is important, but the inside is just as if not more important to prospective buyers.

Unfortunately, not all homes are maintained in the same way. Nearly all realtors are faced, at some point, with a difficult listing to show.

Veteran realtors encourage clients to keep
their homes in top condition for very
important reasons:
* Increased market value
* Reduced list to sale conversion times
* Enhanced reputation for quality listings
and quick sales

SERVPRO® of Montgomery & Pulaski Counties offer a variety of services to help revive your listings to top show condition:
*Carpet, Upholstery, Drapery and
Blind Cleaning
*Ceiling, Wall and Hard Floor Cleaning
* Deodorization
*Duct & HVAC Cleaning
* Mold Mitigation and Remediation

Reasons to keep your air ducts clean

11/14/2017 (Permalink)

The air quality in your home is important. Keeping dust, pollen, pet dander, and other irritants out of the air you breathe involves more than changing the air filter. What about the air ducts? Contaminants collect in the duct system too, and regular cleaning of the air channel is important.

Energy Consumption

Dirty HVAC systems consume more energy than clean ones. Older ductwork starts leaking and not only do irritants enter through cracks, but air escapes too. Dirty ductwork also impedes airflow that drives up energy bills as much as 20 percent. Plus, dirt stresses your system causing frequent breakdowns. Clean ductwork helps lower your utility bill and helps your HVAC unit last longer.

Smelly Air

If someone in your home smokes that cigarette or cigar order hangs not only in the air but in the ductwork. Likewise, if you burned something on the stove, the smoke must go somewhere. These smells and other household odors collect in the ductwork and get circulated five to seven times per day, on average. Odors continue to plague your home long after you remove the offensive item.

More Reasons

Mold and mildew grow in your duct system especially if your home suffered recent water damage from flooding or foundation cracks. Home renovations and repair often lead to contaminants settling in your air system, and newly built homes need the air ducts cleaned before occupancy.

Call the Professional

Air duct cleaning is not an easy job. It needs special vacuum hoses and tools to reach throughout the system. This is not a do-it-yourself task.   Contact SERVPRO of Roanoke and schedule your cleaning today. 

Make sure you contact a NADCA Certified Company for ductwork cleaning. Another helpful idea is to buy a high-quality air filter like the ones sold at home improvement stores. Look for pleated filters costing around $15. Not only do these last a little longer, these filters also catch more debris, including bacteria and viruses, before you breathe it in.
