We spend 90 percent of our time indoors. As such, indoor pollution is more hazardous than outdoor pollution. However, because we spend the majority of time indoors, research suggests that the causes of the rising incidence of autism, allergies and toxin load, may be the result of indoor pollution.
Sources of Indoor Pollution.
1. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a deadly odourless, tasteless gas. If the gas s not vented, it will kill the occupants of
the house. Its familiar sources are attached garages with the car still running, gas stoves, fireplaces, gas dryers, and water heaters. The CO detector placed in the home will give out an alarm of the presence of CO.
2. Inadequate ventilation brings outdoor pollution into the house and keeps cooking and heating gases out of the house.
3. Radon, like CO, is an odourless and tasteless gas. It arises from bedrock and soil beneath the home, which could contain radon that must be eliminated.
What Are The Consequences Of A Dirty Environment?
A. Air duct cleaning of your home’s lungs will remove the health consequences which include: nasal congestion, lethargy, and allergies by removing pollutants in your home heating and cooling systems. The contaminants in air ducts include growth of mould, an infestation of small pests and insects in the air ducts.
B. The overall quality and cleanliness of your indoor home environment improve dramatically.
C. Dirty air ducts decrease the overall health of all family members. Medical research studies have proven that the health of patients suffering from pulmonary health conditions improved when their house was professionally cleaned regularly.
D. Dirty air ducts are the common cause of allergies, sore throat, colds and coughing and lower the quality of air in your house, promoting the circulation of allergens and other bacteria in the air. People with asthma and other allergies are the most likely to become sick; this is especially true with kids and the elderly. Keeping safe fragile people is the main reason why these air ducts must be deeply cleaned when expecting an elderly visitor and naturally sensitive newborns.
E. Dirty air ducts cause the “sick building syndrome” - When the air ducts are not cleaned, pet dander, dust, pollen, and other allergens get stuck in the ducts.
F. Allergens accumulate over time. When the air ducts are used, these allergens are blown around and distributed throughout the building. Breathing this polluted air may not cause allergies to some people, but in the long run, it may cause another severe respiratory disease. Rodents inhabit ducts.
