AIR QUALITY / DUCT CLEANING
According to the EPA Americans spend 90% of their time indoors. The pandemic has taught us that we can no longer ignore air quality. Air quality can be the difference between the spread of germs, bacteria and disease. Bad air quality can lead to several respiratory health problems among other problems. Improper ventilation can spread gases, particulates, and microbial contaminants. Schedule an air quality check to improve your health, comfort and overall quality of life.
Here are some tips to help you determine if the air quality in your home needs to be checked
- Constant sneezing or coughing
- Headaches and fatigue
- Bad odors
- Mold or mildew
- High or Low humidity
Indoor air pollution is a growing concern and now more than ever since the COVID pandemic. Many sections of your heating and cooling system may not be visible to you so you may not be aware of how long it has been since your ducts have been properly cleaned. Ducts infested with vermin like rodent or insects can cause excessive amounts of dust, debris, and particles to be released into the home.
Humidifiers release either warm or cool vapor to help add humidity to a room. You will notice that in the winter when your heating is running at its highest capacity the air in your home will be drier. This can cause nose and eye irritation in healthy people. On the other side, the summer heat can cause your home to be more humid. Humid air can encourage mold and mildew growth and cause potential damage to your home.
The summertime means allergy season, pollen seasons are shifting and increasing in length. The good news is that air purifiers and air scrubbers can make this easier to breath and up your comfort level. Air scrubbers suck in air and use a series of filters to clean the air before pushing it back out.
