Cleaning air ducts for allergies
Spring has finally arrived, and with it comes the pollen that causes so many people suffering from allergies. It is estimated that over 50 million Americans suffer from some form of allergy, and for many of them, springtime is the worst time of year. While pollens from trees and flowers are the most common triggers, dust and other particles can also cause problems. A lot of this dust gets carried into residential areas and becomes trapped inside peoples’ furnaces and ducts.

Dust and dirt accumulate quickly in any home, but this process is accelerated in homes with pets. Not only do pet allergies lead to negative reactions in some family members, but all that extra hair and dander also means more time spent cleaning. In fact, a study by the National Allergy Bureau found that homes with pets require two additional hours of cleaning per week, on average. This leads to not only negative allergic or respiratory reactions but also higher costs for cleaning bills, as well as less efficiency from the house’s heating and cooling system. By taking some simple steps to reduce the amount of pet hair and dander in your home, you can help to improve your family’s health and save money on your energy bills.
Low quality of air that has been polluted with allergens will also keep a homeowner from truly enjoying their home; common symptoms of allergies include:
- eye/throat irritation
- Shortness of breath
- swelling of eyes, throat, and face.
