There are many reasons to take advantage of duct cleaning services, but what is most relevant to homeowners is how clean ducts directly correlate to your home’s indoor air quality.
Why is indoor air quality important?
Outside of going to work, we spend the majority of our time in our homes and according to the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA), indoor environmental pollutants can be up to two to three times higher than the concentrations we face outdoors!
To make indoor air quality even more of a concern, those who suffer from upper respiratory health conditions and allergies tend to spend more time indoors.
Why has the indoor air quality become worse over time?
Indoor pollutants have increased as a result of synthetic building materials, furnishings, household cleaners etc found within the home. Many paints, materials, and products leech toxic fumes, directly affecting the indoor air quality of your home.
You can also find indoor pollutants in the following:
- Tobacco smoke
- Pet dander
How does the indoor air quality affect families?
If the indoor air quality, thus dirty ducts, are left unaddressed that can impact your health in the following ways:
- Respiratory issues
- Dizziness, fatigue, and headaches
- Irritation in the nose, throat, and eyes
Another factor to think about is how the indoor air quality may impact how you live out your day-to-day activities — poor indoor air could affect your productivity and performance when doing simple tasks, like cleaning, around your home.
