There are countless things that your clients need to worry about as they get ready to list their homes on the market, from making small repairs to painting the walls a neutral color. In the hustle and bustle of taking care of things that are immediately obvious, it’s easy to forget some of the things that are lurking beneath the walls, including the ducts. What are some of the benefits of encouraging your clients to clean the ducts before placing their homes on the market?
Get Rid of Lingering Dust and Odors
The duct system of a house is responsible for distributing all heated and cooled air coming from your HVAC system. As a result, if there are lingering odors or contaminants in the ducts, they will be distributed throughout the home—even if there is nothing wrong with the HVAC system itself. When you are helping a client sell a home, you never want to risk something small, like a lingering dusty smell, to compromise an otherwise simple sale.
Make the HVAC More Efficient
Dirty air ducts can make it more challenging for HVAC systems to work efficiently. By cleaning the air ducts in the house, you can make sure that it is ready for the new homebuyers. Energy efficiency is a major priority for many homebuyers today due to inflation and concerns about the environment. Additionally, you can advertise that the ducts were recently cleaned of all dust and debris to any prospective buyers.
Tidy Up After Repairs or Renovations
Some homeowners go through a lot of effort to get their homes ready for sale, including renovations and other major repairs. While these are a great way to boost home value, they can also lead to increased dust and debris accumulation in the ducts. By scheduling a duct cleaning before putting the home on the market, you can make sure that any debris left over from the renovations and repairs is long gone before prospective buyers arrive.
