American Lung Association
1. You breathe fresher indoor air.
Indoor air pollution levels are often 70x (7,000%) greater than outdoor air according to the Environmental Protection Agency. And as much as 50 percent of allergies are either caused or aggravated by indoor air quality. Air duct cleaning can help eliminate the causes of allergies, including house mold (American College of Allergists). With much of our time spent indoors, fresh, clean indoor air in very important.
2. Less dusting needed.
Even in very clean homes, approximately 40 pounds of dust are generated each year per 1,500 square feet of living space. This dust is constantly circulated in your home, building up in your ducts, only to be blown out over your home.
3. Helps improve allergies, sinus symptoms and reduces the risk of chronic lung diseases.
Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer, and chronic lung diseases such as asthma. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue. People who already have lung disease are at greater risk.
4. Drastically reduces your homes dust mites.
Approximately 40,000 dust mites and their feces, the most common and misunderstood cause of allergies, can live in one ounce of dust.
5. Can save you money on utility Bills.
A build up of 0.42 inches of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a 21% decrease of efficiency of your HVAC system. That’s a savings of up to $300 per year when you have your air ducts cleaned.
