With the weather changing to winter, most of your time will be spent indoors. In fact, most people are bound to spend 60-90% of their time indoors. The air you breathe is transported through the air duct system. After a certain period these ducts collect large amounts of dirt, bacteria, fungi dust, chemical residues and debris, among other contaminants.
We at Guardian Services know that each year a large number of people become ill from breathing unclean indoor air. That’s why we focus on air duct cleaning as a preventative service to some of the below larger issues that can result from unclean indoor air:
Dust and Dust Mites:
The presence of dust is natural, but too much dust can lead to a lot of health hazards. This condition may arise if the air ducts are not cleaned regularly. For asthma patients, it’s a major enemy and the condition worsens with increased dust mites in the air. Residents who are healthy can also suffer from itchy eyes, breathing problems and rashes.
MRSA or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
A common infection, it is known for hitting headlines due to record outbreaks at the hospital. Since this virus is capable of transmission, the air duct plays a pivotal role in this process and is one of the primary sources. During the cleaning process, UV lights are installed so that the risk can be completely terminated. It generally causes skin reddening and at times also causes fever, lung and vital organ attack.
Unclean air ducts are best for E-coli breeding and afterwards it will circulate across the home. The air you think is fresh is filled with unwanted bacteria. Some of the most common symptoms include nausea, bloody diarrhea and cramps among others. It is extremely dangerous in children.
Bacteria harboring is quite common in case the duct hasn’t been cleaned for quite some time. This bacterium is responsible for poisoning your food. It leads to abdominal pain, headaches, diarrhea and nausea among others. Dehydration is a major symptom in children along with fever.
