All of us face a variety of risks to our health as we go about our day-to-day lives. Driving in cars, flying in planes, engaging in recreational activities, and being exposed to environmental pollutants all pose varying degrees of risk. Some risks are simply unavoidable. Some we choose to accept because to do otherwise would restrict our ability to lead our lives the way we want. And some are risks we might decide to avoid if we had the opportunity to make informed choices.
Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about. The following information was accumulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the aim to better educate the public on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) concerns.
We encourage all homeowners concerned about their home’s IAQ to consider air duct cleaning as just one of the ways to improve your home’s air. Reducing the use of dangerous chemicals as well as properly maintaining appliances that can emit harmful by-products is also a must.

Why Should I Be Concerned About Indoor Air Quality?
According to the EPA’s booklet on IAQ, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.
Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. Their conclusion is that because of these factors, health risks may be greater due to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
Additionally, groups who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants most often are usually also the most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. These groups include children, the chronically ill, and the elderly. Those who suffer from respiratory or cardiovascular diseases must be especially wary..
