Is Your Indoor Air Causing Allergies? Get Your Ducts Cleaned!

Allergies can be bad year round in Florida, but particularly in the spring and fall. Although we can’t control the dust and pollen in the air we can control the dust and pollen that is in our homes. Duct cleaning is one way to combat this! Allergens are all around us and often we consider remaining indoors to avoid the cause, but in some cases this is like getting out of the frying pan into the fire. Your indoor air can be even more polluted with allergens than the air outside.

Is Your Indoor Air Quality Causing Your Allergies?

Have you been experiencing allergy symptoms outside of the normal allergy season? Or have your allergies been worse this year? According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology, almost half of all homes can contain at least six detectable allergens like mold, dust and pet hair. And the allergens can affect you all year long not just during high pollen times of year.

Common signs you have poor indoor air quality:

  • Frequent cough
  • Itchy throat and eyes
  • Sinus pressure and congestion
  • Cold and flu-like symptoms
  • Dizziness
  • Frequent headaches
  • Constant sneezing

How Duct Cleaning Can Improve Indoor Air Quality

Most of us don't typically think about the cleanliness of our air ducts. Just like the furniture around your house can accumulate dust and grime over time, so can the insides of your home's ventilation system. If there is any dust or pet hair hanging out inside of your ducts, it will be blown around your home the moment you turn on your heater or air conditioner. Duct cleaning services consists of the removal of the dirt, debris, mold, and allergens from the inside of your ducts. Regular professional duct cleaning combined with regular air filter changes can dramatically improve the indoor air quality of your home and help alleviate some of the negative side effects of poor indoor air quality!
