Healthy Homes 101: Duct Cleaning

Having your air ducts routinely cleaned by professionals has a number of health benefits for the average Chicago home. If you haven’t scheduled your cleaning recently (or ever), it’s time to get it done – for your health. Let’s take a look at some of the major benefits of air duct cleaning in Part II of our Healthy Homes 101 series!

A Professionally Cleaned Air Duct System:

Reduces Allergies

When dust, animal dander, pollen, spores, and pollution is pulled into your home, it collects within your air duct system. Over time, the concentration of these allergens can get so dense that allergy sufferers in the home are constantly exposed to them. For many, this amounts to ongoing allergy symptoms which just isn’t an enjoyable experience. For others with diminished or overactive immune systems, the prognosis be far worse. A professional air duct cleaning removes these accumulated allergens and improves the quality of life of everyone in the home.

Helps Prevent Breathing Issues and Reduces Aggravation of Existing Breathing Issues

As mentioned above, duct cleaning removes the vast majority of allergens. However, that’s not all – a duct cleaning also reduces the pollutants and irritants that can induce asthma attacks in asthma sufferers. These pollutants and irritants are common in Chicago homes. In fact, the following contaminants are so common in homes throughout the country that the EPA has a guide on how specifically to diagnose and treat them:

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Nitrogen dioxide and Sulfur dioxide
  • Animal Dander
  • Molds
  • Dust Mites
  • Tuberculosis
  • Legionnaires Disease
  • Allergic Reactions
  • Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis
  • Humidifer Fever
  • Mycotoxins
  • Formaldehyde
  • Pesticides
  • Airborne Lead
  • Mercury Vapor
  • Asbestos
  • Radon

Each and every one of these can be irritating or harmful. And, while a professional duct cleaning can’t remove 100% of these contaminants, it can greatly reduce their presence in your home.

Regulates Indoor Temperature More Efficiently

Sometimes homes have ducts that have become so blocked with dust and dander that the heat can’t get through to the residents – and as a homeowner in Chicago, you know that’s just not gonna work. Temperatures get dangerously low here in winter – to the point where people can get into serious medical trouble without proper heating. A professional duct cleaning improves the efficiency and effectiveness of your HVAC system. Which means not only will you be more comfortable, you’ll be more safe… and you’ll save money as well.

A Happier, Healthier Home

Have your ducts professionally cleaned, and you’ll be well on your way to a happier, healthier home.
