The quality of your indoor air may not be something that ever crosses your mind, but it can be one of the most important factors when it comes to your health. Air ducts that aren’t clean can cause a variety of health conditions to people over time, some more serious than others. We’re here to go over some of the biggest concerns when it comes to unclean air ducts.
According to the American College of Allergists as many as 50% of illnesses are caused by some form of polluted indoor air. This is a staggering statistic, and considering people typically spend most of their time in their home and workplace, poor indoor air quality can eventually lead to some major medical issues.
But just what are some of the health concerns that are caused by poor indoor air quality? When air is not clean, it can be highly sensitive to elderly people, children, and anyone who may have asthma or any type of breathing problem. Unclear air ducts can sometimes cause these conditions in people, and make them worse when the condition already exists.
But unclean air ducts don’t just bring on breathing problems in people. They can also cause dangerous diseases like Legionnaire’s Disease to grow and spread. This isn’t surprising when recent studies by the Environmental Protection Agency show that most indoor air is more polluted than the air outdoors by a factor of 70.
Whether or not you have experienced symptoms associated with indoor air pollution, don’t wait for the potential problem to get any worse. Have your air ducts cleaned today!
