While you may not give it much thought, your indoor air quality is one of the most important factors in keeping you healthy and your home clean. After all, it is quite literally the air that you breathe. It has been proven that air ducts can be home to such things as mold spores, dust mites, and many allergens that can cause or aggravate respiratory problems.
Keeping your filters cleaned or replaced is one of the easiest ways to ensure good air quality. In most cases, it is one of the cheapest ways as well (unless, of course, you have a full bacteria screening filter as they use in hospital isolation wards!). Replacement filters start at around $3 for the most basic variety and can go up to as much as $100.
An air duct is used to move air around your home, right to the farthest part. But as a consequence, any airborne contaminants are also transported around your home, meaning that while you are relaxing, you are breathing in many sorts of pollutants. A professional duct clean can eliminate all contaminants, meaning that you can actually taste the difference.
Of course, there are such things as man-made pollutants, cigarette smoke being a typical example. No matter how many windows you have open, your home will always contain contaminants if you smoke inside. If you’re a smoker, these contaminants may not bother you, but they can still harm other members of the family (even pets).
