Indoor air quality is a serious issue. Indoor air pollution is a growing problem, and thankfully, awareness about the problem is increasing. Many people mistakenly think that the air quality of their homes will improve by dusting, or having a vent hood over the stove with an exhaust fan that can remove vapors, steam and food smells. While using an exhaust fan and having a regular dusting routine help a lot, they aren’t enough to eliminate all of the pollutants and particulate matter that circulates through the air every day. We generate all sorts of contaminants just through our presence in our homes. Our pets produce dander, and dirt and dust are inevitable. The everyday household, laundry, and personal care products contain chemicals, some of which are released into the air. The HVAC system recirculates your home’s air and everything in it as many as five to seven times a day. Inevitably, this means that your HVAC system is recirculating pollutants and contaminants. Dirty air ducts may contribute to breathing and other health-related issues, especially for people who have asthma, allergies, and autoimmune diseases and disorders.
