Having an annual duct cleaning performed in your home can remove dust, mold and varmints from the HVAC system that filters the air you breathe.
In Tucson, Arizona, high levels of moisture in the air can cause mold spores to thrive inside your ducts. These spores are transported into the air you breathe and can cause a host of health conditions, including respiratory illness, infection, asthma and allergies. Ideally, moisture levels should be kept between 30 and 60 percent,depending on individuals’ comfort levels.
A variety of living creatures are able to enter an HVAC system through gaps in the house’s foundation or structure. They make homes for themselves in the ducts and can create quite a mess there, as well as in the rest of the home, since your HVAC system pushes the air, laden with these harmful particles, into your living spaces. Exterminators can remove these pests from your ducts, but you need a thorough, professional duct cleaning in order to remove all of the waste they leave behind.
Dust particles from the outdoors, furniture, carpet and products can all overwhelm an HVAC system. When this accumulation begins to make the HVAC unit less efficient, dust can pass back into the air we breathe and cause symptoms like runny noses, coughing, and red, puffy eyes. People with asthma can experience inflamed airways. Frequent duct cleaning can remove this dust and prevent these problems from occurring. Installing HEPA and carbon filters can also make a big difference in your home’s indoor air quality.
