Home values in Atlantic Beach are high and on the rise. People tend to stay in their homes for quite a while and make changes as their needs grow and change. Consequently, renovation and home improvement projects are very popular. If you have recently had a home renovation or construction in your home, air duct cleaning is recommended.

As you have likely discovered, dust from construction and renovation work gets everywhere, including the inside of your ductwork. Having your air ducts cleaned helps prevent that dust from circulating and also clears out any lingering odors and potential allergens and improves indoor air quality.

Whether you’re looking for a clean start after a home renovation, have purchased a new home, or are seeking allergy or asthma relief, First Coast Home Pros can help. Call (904) 383-7721 or text (904) 712-2674 and we can answer all your questions about air duct cleaning and how it can make a difference in your home.

New Home, Clean Ducts

If you’ve just purchased a new home, it is an ideal time to have the air ducts cleaned. If your home is a new build, you’ll want to get rid of all the excess construction dust. If the home is new-to-you, you will definitely want to get a clean start. If you don’t know when the previous owners last had the air ducts cleaned, or if they ever had them cleaned, take a moment to think of everything you could be breathing in.

  • Dust and dirt
  • Mold and mildew
  • Rodent and insect droppings
  • Dust mites
  • Bacteria
  • Tobacco smoke and chemical residue
  • Dander and pet hair
  • Allergens such as pollen

If the previous owners never addressed what was inside their air ducts, you could be dealing with many decades worth of gunk.

Air duct cleaning is particularly recommended if there is excessive dust or debris, mold, or a rodent infestation, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Air Duct Cleaning Is Not a Do-It-Yourself Project

You can, of course, clean your HVAC filter, register covers, and the area near the top of the registers yourself. However, it takes a high-powered professional brush and vacuum system to thoroughly and deeply clean the entirety of the ductwork.

Working with our professional duct cleaning technicians, you can see deep inside your ductwork using our camera system. You probably won’t like what you see. Most homeowners are shocked by the amount of dust and grime caking the sides of their air ducts. But you will see the difference when we’re finished cleaning.

In addition to taking a comprehensive look at what is inside your ducts, we also check for leaks and damage. Our team members are able to repair any minor leaks on the spot, and if any issues are found with the sealing of your ductwork or damage to a duct itself, we can recommend a trusted professional to fix the problem.

While we applaud dedicated and enthusiastic homeowners eager to DIY an air duct cleaning project, attempting to get into ducts, even moderately, can cause permanent damage to ductwork and the HVAC system.


Additionally, if you live in a home built before 1980, you could have asbestos in the insulation surrounding the ductwork. Properly maintained and left undisturbed, asbestos in a home can be safe. However, an inexperienced homeowner attempting to DIY air duct cleaning can be dangerous if there is asbestos present.
