Duct Cleaning

11/11/2019 (Permalink)

Reports on outdoor air pollution are alarming. But did you know that the quality of air inside your home or business is also a cause for concern? Research shows that the concentration of some pollutants is two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. Given that many Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, you should start to freshen your air, such as through regular air duct cleaning. Below is more information about indoor air pollution and what to do about it.

What Are the Sources of Indoor Air Pollution?

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is often caused by sources that release harmful particles or gases into a room. These sources include your central HVAC system, cleaning products, tobacco products, new carpet, asbestos, and combustion appliances. Areas with inadequate ventilation also tend to have worse IAQ since there's limited outdoor and indoor air exchange. Additionally, outdoor air pollutants like pesticides and radon can infiltrate structures through holes and ventilation systems.

How Can You Improve Indoor Air Quality?

Since ventilation systems play a significant role in IAQ, you should perform routine air duct cleaning. This maintenance procedure goes a long way in reducing the effects of pollutants. If you've been using your HVAC system for a while without a thorough air duct cleaning, know that you may have been circulating pollen, dust, dirt, and other contaminants that can trigger respiratory illnesses. Have an expert test the level of pollutants in your building and devise a corrective action plan immediately.
