If you are trying to sell your home, it is important that you get it clean before you get it sold!

Dirty ducts can circulate odors and contaminants like mold and irritating dust throughout a home; your local SERVPRO franchise professionals will use a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep of the area, removing years of dust and grime.

You can expect to see reduced allergens and pet dander, less offensive and nasty odors, and improved operating conditions and efficiency within your ductwork.

This type of service is imperative if you'd like your home to sell faster — but more importantly, if you'd like to live within the property without possibly breathing in harmful contaminants.

If you're interested in getting your ducts clean, give us a call TODAY!

An insightful, 2012 article by the New York Times suggests that cleaning your home before selling it increases your chances of acquiring the sale. The article refers to, Ginger Brokaw, a senior vice president at Town Residential real estate in Manhattan, and why she says getting your home as clean as possible “is absolutely something of the greatest importance.”

“I’ve seen the response of people walking into a home that hasn’t been cleaned, staged or prepared for showings, and one that has,” she says, “the difference is night and day.”

To enhance your chances of closing the sale, a SERVPRO Franchise Professional will help you get an edge in the market by determining the extent of your property’s damages and to remove harmful bacteria and odors from your property.
