4 Benefits of Duct Cleaning Before the Holiday Season


Duct cleaning is beneficial any time of year, but it can be especially helpful before the holiday season. Not only will it increase home comfort levels for you and your guests, but the benefits of duct cleaning will last throughout the New Year–and for many years to come. Let’s go over four benefits of duct cleaning before the holiday season.

1. Increases The Efficiency Of Your Heating System

Everyone has their own preference for how warm or cool it is inside. But when you have guests over, you may find that you need to turn the thermostat up more than you normally would–especially if you have elderly guests arriving. 

One of the little-known benefits of duct cleaning is that it can improve the distribution of heat throughout your home by removing dust and debris in your air ducts. This improved air distribution will reduce the time the heating system needs to be on which will help keep energy bills manageable, even when you’re boosting the thermostat to keep your guests cozy.

2. Reduces The Amount Of Dust 

Does it seem like no matter how much you clean your home, a fine layer of dust seems to accumulate more often than it should? Constantly cleaning takes away from time that could be spent enjoying holiday activities! And the last thing you want to do when you have out-of-town guests is to have to clean. 

Getting duct cleaning done before guests arrive will help reduce the amount of dust in your home. Removing dust will make your home look and feel cleaner for longer. Also, your friends and family with allergies or asthma will appreciate it since dust can trigger symptoms.

3. Removes Unpleasant Odors 

We all have that one relative who can’t seem to refrain from making negative comments during Thanksgiving dinner. The last thing you want is for someone to comment on your house being smelly! 

Foul odors can be difficult to completely remove from your home because the scents remain in your air ducts and will spread around your home when you turn on the heating system. A duct cleaning will help remove those lingering smells that you just can’t seem to pinpoint the source of, making your home smell fresh and clean for your holiday festivities.

4. Prevents Colds and Seasonal Allergies

Did you know that dirty air ducts can become a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, dust mites, and other unhealthy particulates? These contaminants can affect your health. Combine that with the cold, dry air of the winter season and you’ve got a recipe for illnesses.

Dry, dirty air can cause a host of respiratory problems such as dry mucous membranes, watery eyes, coughing, sneezing, and a runny nose. When your mucous membranes are dry and irritated, they’re not able to trap germs effectively, leading to an increased risk for illnesses. By scheduling duct cleaning before the holidays, you can help reduce the chance that you’ll be sick.
