Many homeowners would be shocked to learn that indoor air is often more polluted than the air outdoors. Dust, pet dander, chemical gasses, smoke, and other pollutants can quickly contaminate the enclosed space of your home. One of the most common ways to improve your indoor air quality is to routinely clean your ducts and air circulation system. Otherwise, poor indoor air quality can lead to a variety of concerns, including:
- Health Issues
It is common for indoor air to be full of dust, mold spores, and pet dander, if there are animals in your home. Any particulate in the air can lead to respiratory irritation, and mold and mildew can cause very serious infections, and in some cases, even death. If your vents are not working properly, mildew and mold may have greater opportunities to get into the air.
- Damage to Appliances and Inefficiency
Dirty air can do a number on your air systems, and can make both your furnace and your air conditioning less efficient. It also is a common cause of furnace and air conditioning problems, and is likely to reduce the life of your HVAC systems. Don’t get stuck with constant furnace repairs when you could help avoid them with regular duct cleaning in your Cincinnati home.
Many people are allergic to pet dander and dust, which can make a home with contaminated air become miserable and unbearable. By cleaning and clearing your ducts, you can keep the amount of material in your air to a minimum, so it won’t cause irritation or allergic reactions in those that are sensitive to it.
