The National Air Duct Cleaners Association in one of its research reports indicated that a 6 roomed house can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dirt, dust and allergens on average per year. This is not surprising bearing in mind the kind of pollution that exists within our surroundings. The statistics further indicate that one ounce of dust can hold up to 40,000 dust mites. What this means is that if you do not regularly clean your ductwork, then you are exposing your family to potential health complications through microbes and allergens.
In order to safeguard your indoor environment and by extension, your family health, you need the services of an expert to check and clean your ductwork periodically.
Allergens and Asthma
Ac fans usually blow away dust particles that are trapped within the air ducts into the indoor environment. This dust then forms the habitat of dust mites which cause allergic reactions. Some of the common reactions as a result of populated indoor environment include skin and respiratory tract irritations. Some people suffer from hypersensitivity Pneumonitis which is a severe reaction in the lung system. Asthma is also a common allergic reaction caused by air polluted with pollen or dust.
