Indoor air quality is important. Through normal occupation in a building, or just living in our homes, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. Untreated ducts over time will start to cause a lot of excessive dust not only in the ducts, but in the air you breath, the furniture you sit on daily, and the bed you sleep on.
According to the EPA US, Environmental Protection Agency “Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.”
While a contaminated HVAC system doesn’t always cause unhealthy air, the situation may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
We use Bio Fresh for odor neutralization and anti-fungal duct cleaning.
