Is there a connection between your sneezing and your HVAC ducts?
When your HVAC blows air through ducts coated in dust, you end up with airborne dust in your home. So it makes sense that cleaning dust, allergens, and other contaminants from ducts could improve air quality and reduce allergy symptoms.
Poor air quality in your home or business can lead to a laundry list of nagging health issues. Here’s a list of some of them that can be released into the air.
DUST MITES – It’s impossible to keep our homes dust-free when HVAC ducts are spewing out dust particles. Those particles quickly settle on surfaces. Dust is a big problem for allergy sufferers.
POLLEN – It’s tracked in on your clothes and shoes. It enters your home through open windows and doors. It’s another allergy sufferer’s enemy, and it’s dispersed throughout your space by your HVAC system.
PET DANDER – The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates 3 in 10 people have allergic reactions to cats and dogs in the U.S. Your ductwork might be spreading dander throughout your space.
MOLD AND MILDEW – Moisture in your ducts can lead to mold and mildew. When looking into allergies and duct cleaning, if your ducts are moldy, duct cleaning is needed. Mold is responsible for many allergy symptoms.
BACTERIA AND VIRUSES – If bacteria and viruses get into your home, they can circulate throughout your indoor space via air ducts and make people sick. In the worst case, you could end up with Sick Building Syndrome.
