October celebrates National Indoor Air Quality Month — a month dedicated to reminding Americans to look at their home and see how they can improve the quality of the air they breathe indoors.
Without air duct cleaning, contaminants and air pollutants get pulled through a home’s ductwork and may contribute to health issues, especially for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders, and allergies.
The air duct (HVAC) system of your building, whether that is your home or office, are the lungs of the entire structure. When everyone starts to get sick regularly and have increased issues with respiratory problems that is when you know the lungs of your building are probably a factor.
You see, contaminants of ductwork can circulate seven to eight times per day and we as Americans spend roughly 80% of our days indoors, breathing that recirculated contaminant or bio-pollutant, according to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA). The health effects from indoor air pollutants, according to NADCA and the EPA, can include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headache, dizziness, and fatigue.
The Benefits of Clean Ductwork
If the health factor of regular air duct cleaning isn’t enough for you – think about the money. Homeowners and property managers need to regularly clean air filters, supply vents, and return grills. Dust and dirt cause heating equipment to work harder. That means higher energy bills, which you could put towards a quality duct cleaning instead.
The benefits of air duct cleaning for your business or home are twofold, cleaner living and smaller energy bills.
