Your air ducts are the link between every room in your home. Even the best ventilation system can still fall victim to the pitfalls of the dusty, dark, and damp environment of a duct. Indeed, every duct is the perfect breeding ground for dust, and dust is the perfect breeding ground for common vent allergens like dust mites, bacteria, molds, fungi, and spores.
Your health can be affected by living things in every duct of your home. Do you feel like you have a cold or allergy that just won’t go away? Symptoms like watery, itchy eyes and sneezing are common for persons with dust allergies, so the quality of the air in your home has much to do with your health and the health of the people you love. Dust allergies affect 20 million people in the United States, so every air duct in your home has the potential to affect your health in ways you’ve likely never imagined.
Cleaning Dust in Your Ducts will Improve Your Health
When you look into a beam of sunlight streaming through your windows, what do you see? Every one of those small floating dust particles that travels through your air ducts can contain mold spores, pieces of cockroaches, and pet dander. According to the USDA, one pinch of dust in any duct of your home can harbor more than 1000 species of bacteria and up to a million organisms.
Reducing your exposure to dust is the best strategy for good health, and this is why duct cleaning is so important.
Other common maladies that can be mitigated with proper duct cleaning include:
- Eye Irritation
- Itchy Skin
