For those who suffer from year round allergies, you can relieve some of your suffering in several ways. To start with, having your carpets deep cleaned regularly helps. Air purifiers are another way. However, one of the leading causes of indoor allergies is your home’s air duct system. You home’s air duct is a key component in circulating air in and out of the home. When the air duct gets filled with pollutants and contaminants, you and other household members are breathing them in whenever the HVAC system is running. To help reduce indoor air pollutants and improve your air quality, you will want to have your air ducts cleaned. DM Carpet Cleaning will share the different contaminants and pollutants found in air ducts and why, if you’re suffering from indoor allergies, you should consider having your air ducts cleaned.
Air Duct Cleaning Removes Dirt, Dust, Mold & More
Dirt and Dust – When you change you air filters you will see dust and dirt caught in the fibers. This same dirt and dust is also found all throughout your air duct system. Dirt and dust naturally occurs and builds up over time. In the summer, when you are using your A/C, your unit pulls air from the outside to cool your air as it circulates throughout your home. Often the combination of dust and pollen is lethal for those with allergies.
Pests – Dust, pollen and dirt isn’t the only thing lurking inside your air ducts. Often insects or rodents will find their way into your air ducts. One pest that is always found all over the home and inside air duct is dust mites. Dust mites aren’t bad and we have co-existed with them as long as humans have been on this earth. Dust mites feed on the dead or shed skin and hair of people and other mammals. However, while they are doing their part in recycling human skin and hair, they are leaving behind feces and molten skin as well. When we breathe in their molten skin or their feces, on a microscope level, our immune system still has problems dealing with it which is what causes allergies. Some other common pests found in air ducts are cockroaches, spiders, and mice and sometime even rats. They too leave shed or molted skin, feces, and urine. When pests get inside your air ducts, they leave behind many forms of contaminates that can cause allergies if not other hazards to human health. If pests have been discovered crawling around your air ducts, have them cleaned immediately.
Mold and Fungus – Sometimes moisture gets trapped inside air ducts. Once moisture gets inside your air duct system, it is the perfect environment to breed mold, mildew or other forms of fungus. When the HVAC runs, spores from these fungus life forms get released into your home contaminating the air. For those with allergies or other more serious respiratory problems such as asthma, molds and fungus can aggravate and trigger allergies or even asthma attacks.
