According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the connection between respiratory issues and mold and allergens can all be traced to proper – or improper – indoor air quality. Among the stronger allergens found in the air, ironically, is common house dust.
What many don’t realize is that house dust can be heavily contaminated with disgusting particles such as cast skins and fecal matter from dust mites. With the help of one ounce of dust, as many as 40,000 dust mites can grow and mature. Even the cleanest house in the world can have dust mites, which means allergies are high-risk at all times. It also is a fact that dust mites can be a major factor in respiratory issues and even asthma.
Allergy shots are a good idea, but when it comes to maintaining respiratory issues, our Lewisville TX HVAC representatives at Southern Comfort Mechanical A/C & Heating suggest a thorough air duct cleaning, as well as the installation of new air filters. Dirt and dust accumulates in air ducts, which results in a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Duct cleaning reduces allergens and also increases the efficiency of your air conditioning unit.
