The Lungs of Your Home - Allergens and Asthma

Through our everyday living, we contribute to contaminants and allergens in the home by shedding hair, dander, and skin cells. According to the HVAC Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Association, these contaminants are cycled throughout your home 5-7 times daily on average.  These contaminants are particularly dangerous to people with allergy and asthma issues. As these allergens are with us year round, it is important to remove the buildup of allergens in our duct system so we aren’t constantly fighting an uphill battle. Reducing the amount of allergens in your home by having a duct cleaning performed is a good start to alleviating the ailments associated with allergies and asthma.

Bacteria, Viruses, Mold and Pathogens 

Research has shown airborne viruses like Covid-19 that are primarily spread by respiratory droplets can be taken in and circulated by your HVAC system, contributing to the spread of airborne viruses. The small particles of viruses and bacteria can be kept alive in your HVAC system if they have access to food (skin cells) and moisture. The absence of UV Light and the presence of the other two elements are the perfect breeding ground for biological growth, including mold. Mold growth in the home, and particularly your HVAC system, can greatly exacerbate allergies and asthma.
