We hear a lot on the news about poor air quality in big cities. Did you know, though, that the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has designated indoor air quality as one of the five biggest environmental risks when it comes to public health?
The air ducts in your home are major contributors to the problem. Throughout the year, they collect dust, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, and more. Then, when air is forced through the ducts to heat or cool your home, they redistribute these micro bacteria from one end of your home to the other. It's a constant and continuous cycle of harmful pathogens in the air being circulated throughout the home.
That is, until someone goes in and cleans out the air ducts. We're not talking about a can of Pledge and a dusting wand of some sort. We're talking about thorough cleaning that neutralizes what you can see with your eyes as well as those that are microscopic in nature.
In addition to improving the overall air quality inside your home, cleaning air ducts thoroughly also eliminates many of the allergens that trigger allergies, sinus infections, and asthma attacks. If you have children that suffer from allergies, asthma, or frequent upper respiratory illnesses, then you know how important it is to get rid of the things that trigger these conditions.
There are many reasons this is a job best left to professionals. As has been mentioned before, doing it yourself often leaves the microscopic problems behind. In addition, you may actually damage your ducts, which can lead to higher heating and cooling costs in addition to the costs of repairs or replacing the ducts. Finally, your time is valuable. You deserve to spend it doing something more exciting than cleaning air ducts.
