Protecting your sinuses and your respiratory system from airborne contaminants is more important than ever these days. Between respiratory viruses and common allergies, it can be really easy for your lungs to come under attack. While there are many ways that you can reduce the likelihood of contracting a respiratory virus by disinfecting surfaces in your home, one of the most overlooked and forgotten areas of your home that needs cleaning are your air ducts. All of the air that you breathe travels through your air ducts so they can easily contaminate your home through the air conditioning system. Start fighting allergies with indoor air duct cleaning from Nevada Pure Air.
Common Allergy-Causing Issues From Dirty Air Ducts
When your air ducts go too long without a good cleaning, dust, and debris quickly pile up. All of the debris that gets stuck in your air ducts can have negative effects on your health. Common allergy issues that arise from dirty air ducts include:
• Dust and Pollen
• Pet dander
• Mold and mildew
• Debris from building materials
• Cigarette smoke
Reduce Pet Dander
If you have pets in your home, the chances are that you are breathing the hair and pet dander that they shed. You may notice that even when you sweep and vacuum your home regularly, the pet dander does not seem to go away. This is because the pet hair and dander finds its way passed air filters and into your air conditioning system. The pet dander then cycles through your home as the air runs. You can end this cycle with routine air duct cleaning.
Prevent Mold and Mildew
Air ducts are dimly lit, cold spaces that can easily trap moisture in there. This becomes the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew spores to thrive in. When mold and mildew grow in your air conditioning system, it can cause you to experience moderate to severe respiratory issues.
How Does Air Duct Cleaning Reduce Airborne Contaminants
An air duct cleaning can help reduce the amount of contaminated air that you breathe on a daily basis. It is recommended that you have your air ducts inspected and cleaned at least once a year, sometimes more depending on if you have pets in your home or have remodeled at all.
