As the flowers are blooming and the weather is warming up, many people find themselves
dealing with seasonal allergies. If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from seasonal
allergies, your home is typically the first place to hide for some relief from outdoor allergens.
But, if your home is also full of allergens such as dust and dander, it can make it even more
challenging to alleviate your allergy symptoms. A great solution is air duct cleaning. This
professional service helps rid contaminants and extract built-up dirt and debris within your
HVAC system and vents. Here are some ways air duct cleaning can alleviate seasonal allergies.
Improves Your Home’s Air Quality
The air that you constantly breathe, especially during the allergy season can be filled with all
kinds of contaminants that can contribute to allergic rhinitis and asthma flare-ups. These particles
can build up in your home’s air ducts and lie dormant until they are stirred up and then released
from the air ducts into the living areas in your home. Having regular professional air duct cleaning
can help remove any buildup of allergens and contaminants and helps promote a clean
and healthy environment for you and your family to breathe.
Eradicates Mold and Mildew
Mold is a common allergy trigger and unfortunately, it can be found in many parts of your home
including the air ducts. As the cold air continually passes through your HVAC system, water
vapor can accumulate within your home’s air ducts which can lead to mold growth. Since mold
and mildew thrive wherever there is warmth and moisture present, your air ducts are the perfect
breeding ground for these frustrating, allergy-inducing contaminants.
Reduces Dust Mites
A gross fact is that a single gram of dust can include up to 19,000 dust mites! It’s even possible,
many experts say, for the average household to produce up to forty pounds of dust each year!
Dust mites live on a diet of human skin and gravitate toward areas you occupy most frequently.
A few of these areas can include the surface of your pillow, your bedsheets, your couch,
blankets, and your carpet. Unfortunately, because humans shed skin constantly, dust mite
hotspots are likely your favorite areas in your home. Worse yet these dust mites are what
typically trigger respiratory issues and allergy symptoms. Since your home’s air ducts also
contain a significant amount of dust, these pests love to hang out in there, too. Professional air
duct cleaning can help eliminate accumulated dust, so your home has cleaner, more breathable
air with fewer contaminants to trigger allergies.
Pollen is a sworn enemy for allergy sufferers and getting rid of it in your home can help reduce
the risk of falling under an allergy attack. Pollen enters homes through open windows and doors
and gets tracked into the home by people’s shoes and their pets. This pollen then continues to
circulate throughout the home through the air ducts when the air gets turned on. Professional air
duct cleaning can combat this pesky pollen from your air ducts leaving you with cleaner air in
