Indoor air quality is a growing concern in the homes. There are many factors that affect the quality of the air in your Hunters Creek, FL home. One of the most important issues that can cause health problems is dirty air ducts in your home.
How Does Air Quality Affect Your Health?
The EPA considers indoor air quality to be a major factor in public health. Dirty air can cause you and your family to suffer the following symptoms:
- Dry, cracked and itchy skin
- Persistent Coughing
- Shortness of breath
- Sore throat
- Increase in allergy-related issues
What Is Dust?
The dust in your air ducts has many different particulates in its makeup. Pollen, pet dander and insect waste are some of the most common components sitting in your ductwork. Each time your forced air system runs, those particles circulate into the air that you breathe and can harm your family’s health.
Why Doesn’t Your Filter Stop This?
Your furnace filter still needs to allow air to flow through the system, so it has to balance filtration and airflow. The smaller particulates can get past the filter and gather inside your ducting. Standard maintenance service can’t prevent this, and this buildup can become extensive over the years.
What Does Duct Cleaning Involve?
Cleaning the dust from your ductwork involves a powerful vacuum system and brushes to break up caked-on debris, but that’s only part of the process. Your technician will conduct a full inspection of your ductwork to find and seal any cracked seams or holes in your ducts. The finished process will leave you with clean air ducts sealed tight against leaks or animal incursion.
