Freshen Things Up With An Air Duct Cleaning


Fight Indoor Air Pollution with Air Duct Cleaning

Hearing about outdoor air pollution is nothing new, but the fact is indoor air pollution can be much more dangerous for you, your family, coworkers, and/or employees. In fact, a report from the World Health Organization in 2016 states that indoor air pollution kills more people per year than HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and TB combined.


This may sound scary, but the truth is there is a lot you can do to reduce indoor air pollution and protect your property from harmful airborne particles. Things like having your carpet professionally cleaned, or purchasing an air filter/purifier are obvious choices, as is changing the filter on your indoor heating/cooling system regularly. However, there is something else you can do that can be a big help as well: having your air ducts professionally cleaned.


Get Rid of Dangerous Particles Hiding in Your Air Ducts


It's pretty obvious that not cleaning your carpet, or changing out your air filters regularly, can lead to poor indoor air quality, but many people overlook the fact that harmful particles can also be hiding inside your air ducts, out of sight, and out of mind. This can have a big effect on the air quality in your home, office, or workplace, and lead to health problems in the coming years or decades.


Cleaning your air ducts is a pretty straightforward process, but we don't recommend trying to do it yourself. It can be very dangerous if you're not sure what you're doing, and there have been accidents. Furthermore, cleaning air ducts requires more than a typical "blow and go" strategy. This method can miss dangerous biological contaminants that can only be destroyed via chemical compounds and can lead to rapid recontamination.


Leave It To The Professionals


Having your air ducts professionally cleaned is one of the best ways to fight indoor air pollution, and improve the air quality at work or at home. Here at American Mechanical we know what we're doing, and have the right tools for the job. In some cases, we may even use chemical compounds to destroy harmful biological agents that could be hiding in your air ducts if necessary.


If you haven't had your air ducts cleaned recently, or ever, there is no better time than now. Remember, indoor air pollution is a slow-moving killer, and you probably won't notice the effects until it's too late. Take action, contact American Mechanical today, and improve your indoor air quality ASAP. You won't regret it.
