Over the course of living in a house for many years, there are going to be a few things that get dirty. As a homeowner, you are probably already doing everything you can to keep your house free of dirt and other pollutants by changing air filters and cleaning regularly.
One of the areas of your home that tends to collect a lot of dust in a relatively short period of time, though, is the air ducts. They are constantly circulating air, and because of this, they pick up everything that comes along with it.
Cleaning your air ducts is a great way to improve the quality of the air inside your home If you have been wondering whether the time is right to get this important chore done, knowing what the benefits are to you and your children’s health can help you decide. In this article, we have laid out some of the main advantages to having clean air ducts in your home.
Dust is one of the number one culprits when it comes to allergy symptoms. Pollen and mold can get sucked up into the HVAC unit where they collect until they are then redistributed in the house. Children can be especially vulnerable when it comes exposure to mold spores, which can result in shortness of breath, wheezing, a runny nose, nasal congestion and even more severe respiratory problems. By cleaning your air ducts more frequently, you can eliminate many of the symptoms and lessen the reaction to seasonal allergies and feel more comfortable when that time of year rolls around.
Lessened Asthma Symptoms
Asthma is a condition that can be easily exasperated by exterior pollutants like dust and dirt. When dust gets in the lungs, they release reactive nitrogen and oxygen species which can cause or worsen the symptoms of asthma. By triggering these reactive species, dust can make your children’s lungs more susceptible to asthma attacks.
Cleaning your air ducts is a great way to get rid of these triggers and help reduce instances of asthma and asthma attacks. A thorough cleaning will remove the dust and help create a safer overall environment for everyone.
Lowered Pet Dander Sensitivity
Pet dander sensitivity is no fun, especially for children who love animals and want to have them in the home. By cleaning your air ducts regularly, you can reduce sensitivity to pet dander and decrease the likelihood that your children will experience an allergic reaction to the cat or dog they love.
When left unchecked pet dander can buildup in air ducts and be dispersed into the air every time your system turns on. A high concentration of pet dander in the air can actually increase the likelihood that your children will be sensitive to it. By getting rid of any dander that may be lurking in the air ducts, you can decrease this percentage the becomes airborne and reduce the sensitivity factor.
Better Overall Breathing
In general, dust is not good for healthy lungs and breathing, especially the developing lungs of children. Something as simple as cleaning the dust out of your air ducts on a consistent basis can be a massive improvement in the overall lung health of you and your children. Being as comfortable and healthy as you can be is essential for the physical health and mental wellbeing of you and your family. Removing as much dust as possible from the air you all breathe on a daily basis is a great step towards achieving this goal.
