If it’s in your ducts, it’s in your lungs!
Air is everywhere. We can’t see it, and usually can’t smell or taste it, but it is essential to our health and wellbeing every second of every day. You probably don’t think about what’s in the air you’re breathing very often. Maybe only when a car emits a dark exhaust, you smell cow manure in a rural area, or your co worker passes gas next to you.
But the truth is, every breath is composed of a complex mixture of gases and tiny solids such as dust, pollens, and other microscopic particles. Our air today is full of toxins and chemicals produced by our modern world of cars, chemicals and machinery and air quality has a huge effect on our daily well being.
For most Americans, the place we spend more time than anywhere else is in our homes. After all, you sleep there every night for (hopefully) seven or eight hours at a time. All the while, you are breathing in any particles, chemicals or toxins that are in your air.
Air passes all through your house and through your AC system and ducting to circulate back into each room. As air passes through your ducts, it picks up any particles that it may have left behind the last time it passed through. After all, you vacuum your carpet regularly, otherwise it gets dirty and dusty. But you probably never vacuum your ducts do you? Well they get dirty and dusty too.
The most common contaminants found in home ducts are:
- Insect and rodent droppings
Some of these things seem more harmful than others, but the truth is, all of them are bad for your respiratory health and can lead to serious problems if never dealt with.
Although dust and dander is mostly composed of old skin cells from yourself, your kids, and your pets, it is not good for you to breath. These tiny particles can irritate your lungs and contribute to illnesses like pneumonia or asthma.
Pollen can trigger allergic reactions in you and your guests as well as cause the same negative effects as dust and dander. After all, our lungs are designed to breath air and unknown particles can cause all kinds of complications when they get inside our respiratory systems.
We probably don’t need to tell you why insect and rodent droppings can cause problems. They could be filled with all kinds of nasty chemicals, odors and microparticles that could spread more than just poor air quality, they could also spread disease.
