Indoor Air Quality (I.A.Q)

Certainly, people today have become increasingly aware of the effect indoor air quality has on our health. The EPA has also studied the results of human exposure to air pollutants. They found, indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times and occasionally 100 times, higher than outside levels. As a result, Indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental risks to public health.

While the problems they cause can be rather subtle, they don’t always produce easily identified or sudden impacts on health. In the colder months, the air trapped inside a structure can also cause contaminants to build up.

As a result, most of the dust in our homes contain mould, dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Because these pollutants travel through the air, they can inflame breathing problems such as asthma and allergies. Ducted HVAC systems are rather like a building’s respiratory system, circulating air throughout our structures.

Hence, ducted systems can become hazardous breeding grounds for allergy-causing contaminants. As a result, they often contain odours, even dead rodents and other pests. You should have duct cleaning performed every 3 to 5 years or when necessary. Standard disposable filters only stop about 10% of the airborne contaminants, therefore leaving 90% behind to re-circulate through the system.

Hence, a clean and maintained system with high resistance filters installed can remain healthy for 3 to 7 years. This can also vary depending on the environment.

Consequently, more frequent cleaning can be necessary if people have allergies, smoke or have pets shedding lots of hair or dander. Likewise, in a well-maintained environment with regular dusting, vacuuming and routine carpet and floor cleaning, 5 to 7 years might be sufficient.

Other suitable times we would also recommend duct cleaning are after remodeling or prior to occupancy of a new property.

  • Have you found dirt in the vicinity of the air conditioning or heating vents?
  • Do you find a collection of dirt as you wipe your finger across your desk or filing cabinets?
  • These are common indicators of polluted air from a dirty HVAC system!

Benifits of a Clean Air System

  • A clean HVAC system performs far more efficiently and will also decrease energy costs.
  • Properly maintaining the mechanical components will help them last longer while also reducing costly system repairs.
  • Clean air systems lessen the chances of indoor air pollution affecting a building and may also help to avoid health or comfort complaints by occupants.
  • Therefore, commitment to improving indoor air quality provides better relationships between management and the tenants.
  • Furthermore, building occupants with staff often see reductions in employee downtime or sick days, increasing productivity.
  • Tenant retention rates are also greater in buildings that have superior indoor air quality.
  • Finally, tenants perceive higher value in buildings with regular air system maintenance.

Our 5 recommendations for clean, healthy air

  • Have a professional clean your air ducts. The longer you wait, the longer you, your family or employees are exposed to possible contaminants. Furthermore, the sooner you clean them, the sooner you improve your indoor air quality and the efficiency of your system.
  • Weigh up the benefits of choosing a company offering cheap price to one with honesty and a commitment to quality service. Your family certainly deserves the best.
  • Finally, before you hire a duct cleaner, ask them the following questions:
  • How do I know when my air ducts need cleaning?
  • How often do I need to clean my air ducts?
  • What insurance do you have?
  • What type of equipment do you use?
  • Do you use Hepa filtered or externally extracted equipment?
  • What Guarantees do you have?
  • So you’ve found a competent Duct Cleaning Professional. Invite them to your home or office and request a written quote. Hence, written quotes make sure you know exactly what your job will cost… No surprises.
  • Above all use high-efficiency filters. We also highly recommend using electrostatic air filters. They remove pollen, dust and airborne pollutants with a peak air resistance of 94%. Furthermore, electrostatic air filters are very durable. They are also quick and easy to clean. So the next time you have your ducts cleaned, these five recommendations can help you make an informed decision.
