The Source of Poor Indoor Air Quality Could Be in Your Ducts

If you deal with allergies, a respiratory condition, or live with someone who does, you have probably addressed most of the visible sources of poor indoor air quality. Frequent cleaning, vacuuming, and replacing of your air filter are central to maintaining healthy indoor air. But if your respiratory problems or allergies persist, the source of contaminants may be harder to reach on your own. Air duct cleaning dislodges and removes the dirt, dust, dander, and pollen that accumulates inside the ducts in your home. A professional air duct cleaning uses HEPA-filtered commercial equipment to remove the debris at the source of the poor air quality in your home.

The Causes of Bad Indoor Air Quality

The sources of air contaminants come from literally everywhere, including our own bodies. Though it’s not the most pleasant thing to think about, dust, dander and debris tend to be organic materials. In other words, they are made up of dead skin, hair, fur, pollen, and other microscopic particles that coalesce into a big, dirty mess. Even the most regular dusting and vacuuming won’t get everything. As a result, we use air filters in our HVAC system to trap small particles cycling through our indoor air. If you are suffering from prolonged respiratory issues, consider where air contaminants may be originating in your home.

Common causes of poor indoor air quality include:

  • Pets, including dogs, cats, and other animals with hair or fur that sheds
  • Indoor smokers, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and vaping
  • Inefficient or improperly sized air filters
  • Poorly ventilated kitchens
  • Pollen, mold, and organic allergens inside or outside your home.

It’s not possible to control all of the contaminants in the air. However, you can make sure that your HVAC system isn’t making matters worse by circulating them throughout your home. A professional grade duct cleaning will remove all built-up debris from the inside of your home and clean your air. Additionally, the Cooper team will make sure all ducts are properly sealed and filters are effective for your system and needs.
