Air Duct cleaning! A service mostly ignored and why it’s necessary?
According to the American Lung Association, “Indoor Air Pollution is widespread. You are more likely to get sick from pollution in your home and office than from pollution in the air outside.” Your home’s air is 5 to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Allergies and sinus conditions are commonly caused by mold in the ductwork, bacteria, viruses, fungi and dust mites in your home’s air. It is also known that Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Therefore, indoor allergens and irritants can play a significant role in triggering asthma attacks, among other health issues. And don’t be surprised, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) indoor air pollution is the 8th most important risk factor and responsible for 2.7% of the global burden of disease – from pneumonia, chronic respiratory disease and lung cancer to migraines, and debilitating headaches.
What are some of those triggers?
Second-Hand Smoke: Second-hand smoke is a mixture of smoke from the burning end of a cigarette, pipe or cigar and the smoke exhaled by the smoker that is often found in homes and cars where smoking is allowed.
Dust Mites: Dust mites are too small to be seen, but can be found in almost every home in mattresses and bedding materials, carpets, upholstered furniture, stuffed toys, and curtains.
Mold: Mold can grow indoors when mold spores land on wet or damp surfaces. In the home, the mold is most commonly found in the bathroom, kitchen, and basement.
Cockroaches and other Pests: Cockroach body parts, secretions and droppings and the urine, droppings, and saliva of pests such as rodents are often found in areas where food and water are present.
Warm-Blooded Pets such as Cats and Dogs: Pets’ skin flakes, urine, and saliva can be found in homes where pets are allowed inside.
Nitrogen Dioxide: Nitrogen Dioxide is an odorless gas that can be a byproduct of indoor fuel burning appliances such as gas stoves, gas or oil furnaces, fireplaces, wood stoves and unvented kerosene or gas space heaters.
