What is Indoor Air Quality?
Health officials define Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a home or building, particularly as it relates to the comfort, health, and well-being of the people inside.
By cutting down on or eliminating indoor pollutants that are airborne, you can reduce the risk of health problems significantly. The concern with a lot of indoor air pollution is that many of the health implications aren’t always obvious right after exposure. Sometimes, it can take years before serious health issues are noticeable. As such, residents need to ask themselves: What kinds of hidden toxins are floating around in the air I breathe in my home?
How Important is Indoor Air Quality?
Promoting clean and healthy breathing conditions in your home is essential for ideal health and overall wellness for that inside.
Americans spend most of their time — an estimated 90 percent of it —indoors, whether it be at home, in an office, or a restaurant, work building, factory, or warehouse. In many of these kinds of places, experts are finding smoke, aerosol, toxic gases, chemicals, and other pollutants that cause allergies, headaches, fatigue, and breathing problems, in addition to irritation of the eyes, throat, nose, and skin. The more severe indoor pollutants can cause heart disease, cancer, respiratory problems, and other grave long-term health conditions.

4 Benefits of Duct Cleaning
As the weather slowly gets colder and we turn on the heat, the moisture in the air within our homes remains the same while the relative humidity drops. Unless we have a humidifier, this makes the air in our homes feel dry and can lead to health and comfort issues. Because the air can feel so dry, many who want to feel more comfortable get humidifiers. Aside from the obvious, there are many benefits of using a humidifier during Ohio’s winter that you may not realize.
REMOVES UNPLEASANT SMELLS
When you combine everyday household tasks like cooking and cleaning, it can create all sorts of unusual smells in the air ducts. Furthermore, the buildup of dust and other particles within the air ducts themselves can end up making a home smell musty over time. Professional air duct cleaning removes these odors and gives a home a cleaner, friendly, fresher smell.
Dust is one of many contaminants that build up in your HVAC system’s air ducts. Additional irritants include pollen, pet dander, and mold. People who suffer from asthma or have allergy symptoms are particularly sensitive to these particles. Often, they can aggravate breathing problems with symptoms ranging from coughing and sinus congestion to asthma attacks. Having our team clean your air ducts can help prevent health issues for those who are more sensitive.
The dirt, dust, and debris inside your air ducts can restrict the airflow, which means your HVAC system has to struggle to maintain your desired temperature. Along with diminished comfort, if your air ducts need to be cleaned, you will also have higher energy bills since your A/C and furnace has to do more work.
PREVENTING EQUIPMENT FAILURE
If one thing guarantees eventual HVAC system malfunction, it’s excessive dirt, dust, and debris. One of the best ways to prevent this and keep your home comfortable is to keep your HVAC system clean, and a big chunk of that involves cleaning the grime out of your air ducts.
