Can Professional Air Duct Cleaning Services Help Limit Asthma and Allergy Symptoms? Find out Here!
"Stay inside," they said. "You will have fewer allergy symptoms," they promised. But we are now finding out that the opposite is often the case! Especially with sensitive individuals, such as young children and the elderly.
What is causing the shift? Toxic indoor air.
The average person spends less than five minutes a day outdoors. And the pandemic has caused us to stay home even more than usual. If you and your family are breathing the same indoor air day in and day out, you really need to know that your home air is safe to breathe.
Read on to find out what to do to help your kids - and you - breathe easier and feel better. We’ll discuss how to test air quality in-home, mold removal, and the benefits of both a whole-house humidifier installation and air duct cleaning services.
Is Your Home's Indoor Air Harming Your Kids?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average person's indoor air is up to five times more toxic than the air outside. Modern, airtight and insulated homes have made this problem much worse by literally trapping the airborne toxins indoors!
3 Places You Can Find Airborne Toxins In Your Home:
- Off-gassing from mattresses and furnishings
- Toxins found in home cleaning and personal care products
- Fumes from craft glues and so-called air fresheners
Chances are, your home's indoor air is a recipe for respiratory distress!
Right now, stop reading and just take a quick look around your space. What do you see? What do you smell? Can you pronounce the ingredients on that bottle of counter cleaning spray? What about the scented candle in your bathroom - what is it made of?
The truth is, we are all tempted to blame the great outdoors for our respiratory symptoms. But all too often, the real culprits are the ones we bring home with us.
When Should You Book Your Air Duct Cleaning Services?
According to the EPA, there are four key signs to watch for that will tell you when it is time to consider professional air duct cleaning services.
1. When you see mold on, around or inside your air registers, exhaust vents, duct surfaces and heating and cooling components.
2. When you have or are now dealing with an insect, vermin or rodent infestation.
3. When you can see visible signs of dust and debris exiting your air registers or HVAC components.
4. When your air ducts have accumulated built-up dust and debris that has gotten trapped inside.
Now, reading through this list, you can see it may be tricky to determine whether some of these criteria apply to you. This is especially true if you have no idea whether the previous homeowner did any maintenance on the ductwork at all.
So how can you know if your home is overdue for indoor air duct cleaning services?
How to Tell If Your Air Ducts Need to be Professionally Cleaned
Here at Shipton's CleanAir Solutions, we are not a fan of doing an indoor air duct cleaning sight unseen.
This is why we always start every air duct cleaning evaluation by taking a look inside your air ducts and inviting you to look along with us!
How do we do this?
Our professional Rotovision video inspection system allows us to insert a tiny camera up into your air ducts. This tiny camera is linked to a larger external video monitor so we can see exactly what is lurking inside your air ducts.
(Want to see this in action for yourself? We invite you to watch this short video of a client's RotoVision ductwork inspection.)
Is your primary problem dust? Mildew? Insect debris? Rodent waste? Mold? All of the above? We won't have to guess. Rather, we will look together and decide what the best approach should be.
This systematic approach also ensures that if any advance prep work needs to be done, like mold removal, we can take care of that first to safeguard you and your family.
There have also been cases where we insert the tiny camera up into a customer's ductwork and discover the air ducts really don't need to be cleaned. In this case, we will defer the treatment and offer you other recommendations for any indoor air quality concerns you may have.
If you’re not sure how to test air quality in-home, we can help! Contact our team today to learn more about home indoor air quality testing!
