Does someone in your home experience allergies, asthma or respiratory disorders? What about headaches, nasal congestion or sinus problems? If so, the problem may be right under your nose. Both Total Health and Better Health magazines cite that “1 of 6 people who suffer from allergies do so because of the direct relationship to fungi and bacteria in the air duct system.” Simply put: dirty ducts can make you sick. The Department of Consumer Affairs adds that “children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air.”
Dirt, pollen, smoke, pet hair, dust mites, even dead skin gets trapped deep inside your ducts. This creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Every time you turn on your system, these contaminants get blown into the air that you and your family breathes.
