Have you ever wondered what is in your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) ducts? Ask the professionals at Duck Squad Orlando to inspect your ductwork and give you a free estimate to clean the ducts and replace the filters.
According to the Live Science article, Trouble Sleeping? Air Pollution Could Be the Culprit, it could begin outside your home, but clean filters and clean ducts can prevent outside air from polluting your home.
“Researchers found that people in the study who lived in areas with high levels of air pollution were 60 percent more likely to sleep poorly, than those who lived in areas with cleaner air.”
Furthermore, the built-up dust in your ducts capture moisture that could allow mold and mildew to grow in your ducts.
The Mayo Clinic warns, “A mold allergy can cause coughing, itchy eyes and other symptoms that make you miserable. In some people, a mold allergy is linked to asthma and exposure causes restricted breathing and other airway symptoms.”
Therefore, you will not only have sleeping troubles but also be wide awake and miserable. Mold is a respiratory system irritant that can cause lung damage and debilitating diseases, especially for infants and the elderly. The damage to an infant’s lung may be permanent.
It’s proven that changing your HVAC filters and cleaning the ducts can improve your home’s air quality. The Duck Squad of Orlando, FL can change the filters and clean the ducts before you start using the heat more this winter. Blackened vents are a sure sign you’ve waited too long to have your ducts cleaned.
