Think of the heating and cooling system in your commercial space or home as the lungs. The heating and cool system takes in air and breathes it out. Daily living and use of these systems mean a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and more start to built up. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.
While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air, they may contribute to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies. How often do you think about what might need to be cleaned inside your walls? Air ducts serve as vital pathways that deliver warm and cool air throughout your home or facility and need to be properly maintained.
